UPG-07 Software Options are easy and convenient to upgrade in the field.   Danatronics gage upgrades are done directly from your gage's keypad and do not require the use of a computer.

The following are available upgrades for the UPG-07 Monochrome Series

Comes standard with the UPG-07DL and UPG-07DLW

The datalogger stores 100,000 alpha numeric data points or thousands of waveforms (if gage is equipped with waveform option). Thickness values along with the i.d. information and all gage set up parameters are exported to Microsoft excel via the no-charged, Data XL interface program. Our Datalogger also interfaces with Ultrapipe. 

Live Waveform
Comes standard with the UPG-07W and UPG-07DLW

The live waveform (A-scan) is used to verify reading stability. With the live waveform the operator can adjust gain, range, rectification and 2 forms of blanking to set the gage to ignore unwanted noise or mode converted echoes.
Live Waveform
The following accessories are available for the UPG-07 series

Spring Loaded Holder
The spring loaded holder (SPH-718) is the ideal fixture to be used on small diameter applications such as tubing to prevent the probe from rocking. Shown above is the SPH-718 with the DK718 transducer inside. The probe can be rotated as well and the fixture has v-notches to assist in probe alignment.
