DCVG EQUIPMENT DIFFERENCES 

maximusdiff.fw

 · Has an analogue DCVG movement for locating and
reading off electrical measurement data.
· A digital screen for viewing data at the time of
taking it plus recording DCVG electrical
measurements in 2GB internal memory.
· Meter Sensitivity Range: 10mV to 10V
· Comes with 1 x Bias Probe Handle and 1 x Single
Connector Handle. Bias Probe handle has no internal
battery and are charged off the Maximus DCVG
meter Battery. Comes with GPS Satellite Aerial and
backpack with aerial stand.
· Comes with reference probes
· Comes with Maximus DCVG Analysis software to
calculate %IR Severity automatically and to create
graphs and tables.
· Has Integrated GPS for accurate distance
measurement. GPS data and distance data recorded
via GPS coordinates from Maximus DCVG. Also
records GPS coordinates for features recorded along
the right of way.
· Locate epicentre of coating defects using analogue
meter movement with the CP system pulsed ON and
OFF by interrupter.
· Obtain Digital copy of Data.
· Manually determine Signal Strength at test posts:
calculated P/RE and has the facility to record a
digital copy of data, both by summing using the
reference probes and by using a 15 metre cable.
· Manually determine OL/RE and has the facility to
record a digital copy of data, both by summing using
the reference probes and by using a 15 metre cable.
· Manually determine Corrosion Status at Coating Defect Epicentre to Remote Earth using the analogue DCVG meter
and has the facility to record a digital copy of data using 15 metre cable using digital display and logger.
· Used only with a satellite synchronised interrupter (50 or 125amp).
· Maximus DCVG can manually and automatically record the corrosion status using a 15 metre cable.
· For corrosion status within Maximus DCVG anodic is a + and cathodic is a -.
· Full set comes with all items requires to do a survey; including carry cases.

DCVGdiff.fw

· Only has an analogue DCVG movement
for locating of coating defect epicentres
and for reading off electrical measurement
data.
· Does not have any internal memory
· Meter Sensitivity Range: 10mV to 4V
· Comes with 2 x Bias Probe Handles. Probe
handles have internal battery that require
charging
· Does not come with GPS Satellite Aerial
· Does not have integrated GPS.
· Does not need a backpack.
· Does not come with any software - DCVG
software purchased as an extra.
· No digital copies of DCVG data.
· Manually determine Signal Strength at
test posts: calculated P/RE using Analogue
DCVG meter Movement.
· Manually determine OL/RE.
· Manually determine Corrosion Status at
Coating Defect Epicentre to Remote Earth.
· NO GPS data or distance data recorded.
Need a separate GPS unit to record this
information or a surveyors wheel.
· Can be used with a stand alone standard
interrupter or a satellite synchronised
interrupter.
· Does not come with any software to
calculate the %IR Severity. Need to use
own software or software from DCVG Ltd or
manually analyse data.
· Manually measure the corrosion status using the analogue meter movement once set up for this. Read off
the analogue meter movement then manually record.
· Comes with reference probes.
· Full set comes with all items requires to do a survey; including carry cases.
