Second Hand Scintrex CG5

We sell a CG-5 microgravimeter whose sensor was revised in 2020 by the manufacturer Scintrex. It is in very good condition.

Year 2012

Sold with transport box, transport bag, reinforced tripod, manual, RS-232 cable, cable and box for USB unloading, GPS and remote control.

The Scintrex CG-5 relative gravimeter is a geodetic field instrument capable of measuring at any point on the globe the difference in the gravitational field between two points (measurement range up to 8000 mGal) with a resolution of 1µGal and repeatability of the measurements of 5µGal.

Fully Portable

The CG-5 AUTOGRAV incorporates the gravity sensor, control keypad, electronics, and batteries into one lightweight weather resistant instrument case. No cables to trip over, no handheld devices, just an easy to use and carry, self-contained gravity meter. GPS Station Referencing Internal GPS Receiver enables GPS station referencing from a 12 channel smart GPS antenna connected via the RS-232 port. Standard accuracy: <15m; DGPS (WAAS): <3m.

Touch Free Operation

This instrument is equipped with a radio-frequency remote start transmitter (keyfob) to allow measurement to be taken without disturbing the meter by touch.

Automatic Compensation and Correction

By using the electronic tilt sensors, the CG-5 AUTOGRAV is constantly updating information from the internal tilt sensors. The CG-5 AUTOGRAV can automatically compensate measurements for the errors in instrument tilt. This operator selectable feature ensures that when measurements are taken on unstable ground, errors due to instrument movement are automatically eliminated. Based on operator entered geographical location and time zone data or GPS information, the CG-5 AUTOGRAV can automatically calculate and apply a real time tidal correction to each reading.
