Featuring intuitive, easy-to-use arrow-keypad control, powerful data management and the latest industrial electronics to provide accurate, reliable and comprehensive thickness inspection data.The DMS Go+ thickness gauge that can be easily converted into a comprehensive flaw detector with a simple software upgrade.
The DMS Go from GE’s Inspection Technologies business is a high-end thickness gauge which combines an innovative, easy-to-use user interface, powerful data management and an ability to provide accurate, reliable and comprehensive thickness inspection data. It is ideally suited for a wide range of applications including measuring for corrosion in the oil and gas sector and in power generation.
The DMS Go uses the same operating platform as the USM Go portable flaw detector. By means of a simple software purchase your DMS Go can benefit from all the USM Go functionalities and perform advanced flaw detections.
DMS Go Series/Upgradeability
The DMS Go can be upgraded to include numerous features/functions. Features/functions can also be added at a later time. See DMS Go Series chart below.
Auto-V SupportedIf your components are uncoated, you have the Auto-V feature at your disposal. It is a clearly simplified version of the conventional thickness measurement and, as such, a unique method. Auto-V even allows you to measure the thickness of components with unknown material velocity. This enables you to measure different uncoated materials without any additional calibration – and without any calibration standards. It’s not necessary to know the material velocity to be able to measure – this previous disadvantage no longer exists.
TOPCOAT Technology Supported
With the patented “TopCOAT“ method we have been able to optimize the corrosion measurement through paint coatings: this method makes it possible to measure materials showing heavy corrosion on backwall surfaces, and even the slightest pitting can be detected thanks to a high gain. The paint coating and base metal are measured in one measurement process, and displayed simultaneously.
The DMS Go offers powerful data recording and data management capability to meet the most demanding of thickness gauging and corrosion inspections. Important features include:
High Capacity Data Recorder and Compatibility with Powerful Data Management Systems
Powerful on-board data recorder has capacity of hundreds of thousands readings and permits the storage of A-scan, B-scan and MicroGRID attachments to thickness readings
Data can be organized using pre-set (linear, grid, boiler), custom (custom linear, custom grid) or advanced (3D and 4D in UltraMATE) files structures
Data transfer is via industry standard removable SD card up to 16 GB
A USB port is included to allow instrument to PC connection if preferred – no driver needed, works with all versions of Windows
Export in different file formats (xls, html, dat, csv, pdf…) to allow easy integration with user data management softwares and user quality control systems
Compatible with UltraMATE and UltraMATE lite data management programs to allow for comprehensive analysis and documentation of data
The data recorder files can be interfaced with other 3rd party software programs using a GEsoftware development kit, supplied on CD
The DMS Go’s on-board Data Recorder makes all the options for up-to-date documentation and modern data management available to you:
Memory capacity for 150,000 readings and 1,100 A- or B-scans (extendable)
Flexible adaptation to the measurement task by eight different file structures – according to the arrangement of measuring points most often encountered
Subsequent insertion/deletion of readings within a file
Storage of additional information for each measurement location: probe, material velocity, date, time, calibration, etc
Comment line with 64 characters accessible at any time
Microgrid: You can insert up to 81 readings, in 2 x 2 to 9 x 9 grids, per measurement point at any time during the test using this function. By doing this, an analysis can be made in the direct vicinity of a critical measurement point
A standard USB connection to allow data to be downloaded from the flaw detector for further analysis or storage. The instrument is standard delivered with a 2 GB SD memory card (can accommodate up to 16GB card size).
Reports are produced in jpeg or bmp format so there is no need for special reading software
A simple on-board data logger to collect and save thickness measurements
The DMS Go ultrasonic thickness gauge has been ergonomically designed to provide an instrument which is light, small and easy to use in the harshest inspection environments.
Minimized housing size when used in difficult-to-access areas
Optimized display size to improve readability and echo separation
One hand operation for security
Light weight (870 g/1.9 lb)
Can be used with regular camera and industrial tripods
Main controls are under the thumb: gain, free defined keys
A “Flip” function allows the instrument to be used equally well by left-handed and right-handed people
A robust moulded rubber casing to withstand the harshest environments and significantly reduce downtime
IP 67 immersion test (P67 / IEC529 - dust proof / dripping water proof as per IEC 529 specification for IP67 classification)
Drop test (514.5 Procedure II; 516.5 Procedure IV)
Vibration test (Mil-Std-810F; 514.5-5 Procedure I, Annex C)
