DX-160 AC and DC Digital Gauss Meter

DX-160 AC and DC digital gauss meter


This instrument can measure and display 6 parameters simultaneously. Units of measure optional Gauss, Tesla, A / M or Oe. This instrument also provides an RS232 interface for communication with the PC. It is designed and manufactured in accordance with ISO-9001 standard. With the functions of bright VGA color graphics, full menu operation, 5 ¾-bit readings, and high-resolution 1 / 600000, it makes it convenient to observe 0.0001mT weak changes in the high magnetic field measurements. It is able to measure a maximum of 30KG (3T). It has a large-capacity data storage and you can review the historical data according to storage time and it can upload data to a PC. Products are mainly sold to large institutes, universities and research departments of large factories.

Main Function


  1. High-precision AC / DC magnetic field measurement/ Temperature compensation system.
  2. Automatic / Manual Range: automatically adjust the test magnetic field range to a suitable gear in the automatic range, the manual range has three gears.
  3. Automatic / Manual Storage: This machine provides 1000 data storage spaces and automatically stores data according to a set time (1-60 seconds). Also it provides random storage and can be reviewed as per time and stored order.
  4. Max / Min Lock: Turn on or off the peak measurement function. Capture and display the highest and the lowest magnetic field readings, and lock the interface.

1. First gear: Maximum/minimum/peak/valley holding 

2. Second gear: interface locking    

3. Third gear: relieving

Auto Zeroing mode 

1. Relative zero magnetic field mode: put the probe into the chamber of the Zero-Gauss calibrator, zeroing and storing the data.

2. Eliminate geomagnetic field mode: horizontally put the probe make sure it is to be vertical against the geomagnetic field, zeroing and storing the data.

Communications and drawing:

The RS-232C interface function

1. The user can use the computer to read test data, draw various survey maps with professional mapping software, and transmit and print chart

2. With serial real-time transmission function of real-time monitoring real-time data in a computer

3. Query real-time data through fixed instruction

At the same time, DX-160 monitoring analog output ( BNC ) can provide auxiliary automation capabilities without PC circumstances.
