Release of V-Meter MK IV™
Instruments Inc. Releases the V-Meter MK IV™Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity
System For Finding Voids and Cracks, and Determining Other Material
October 19th, 2011, Chicago, Illinois - James Instruments Inc.
announces the release of the V-Meter MK IV™, ultrasonic pulse velocity
system for finding voids, crack and determining other material
properties in concrete, wood, ceramic, masonry and other coarse grain
materials. Cracks, voids and honey combs are most sensitive
to the stress waves caused by ultrasonic testing, this makes the
V-Meter MK IV™ one of the most effective methods for determining
quality of coarse grained materials. The new system
utilizes the latest in software and electronics technology to simplify
testing and help interpret the data generated.
A direct digital read-out of transit time, and read out of
wave form on daylight display, back lit LCD.
Rugged and splash resistant case built for tough
construction environments. Portable, and light weight with
both rechargeable battery and standard A-C power.
Includes a signal and trigger output for use with external
oscilliscope or other data input device. Digital calibration
means no special bar required. Trigger levels and Signal
amplification can be digitally adjusted.
Conforms to ASTM C-597, BS 1881-203 and other
USB interface for computer control. Veelinx™
software allows complete control of the system as well as data upload
to a PC and data analysis.
Direct reading of calculated P-wave velocity and S-wave
velocity. The unit can also calculate modulus of elasticity
of material using optional
Direct reading of Poisson's ratio
A large range of Accessories and
available. Standard Transducers available from 24KHz to 500
KHz enable the unit to test ceramics, graphite, mass concrete pores,
and wood. Exponential Transducers for rough surfaces, as well
as underwater transducers are also available. Finally a
is available for help with long distances or highly attenuative
V-Meter MK IV™
V-Meter MK IV™
System includes the
Software which features:
All Operational Parameters of V-Meter MK IV from a Personal Computer
Upload of Data for Long Term Laboratory of Production Analysis
Storage in Standard ASCII format for use in popular Spreadsheet
Software and other Office Personal Computer Applications.
MK IV™ is our fourth generation of this system and represents not only
our continued commitment to the test method, but also our commitment to
bringing the latest technology to the testing community” says Michael
W. Hoag, President of James Instruments Inc.
is the leading manufacturer of non-destructive test equipment for
construction materials, specifically concrete, ceramic, wood, masonry,
mortar, gypsum and other coarse grained materials. We supply the
instruments that: measure strength, both compressive and tensile,
locate rebar and other objects in concrete and masonry, determine
density and analyze materials ultrasonically, analyze corrosion and,
finally, determine moisture in concrete and other
construction materials. And more. James Instruments
-- rugged, quality equipment for field use -- backed by factory service
and an ongoing program of research and development.
