ShotMeter G3 - Particle Velocity Sensor

Shotmeter -G-3eProgressive Surface & Tecnar Automation are proud to introduce the ShotMeter G3, an improved third generation industrial sensor specifically developed and optimized for monitoring shotpeening and grit blasting processes.

This low-cost & rugged technology enables real-time measurement of shot/grit velocity for process development as well as troubleshooting activities. Measured parameters are continuously recorded as a function of time in a strip chart format, and data is archived for easy retrieval either from within the ShotMeterOS software, or using your preferred spreadsheet software.

The system is comprised of a urethane covered sensor head, control box, cables and a portable laptop computer. Since the unit is portable, it can be set up and running in about 20 minutes.
