DISCLAIMER
Inherent in ultrasonic thickness measurement is the possibility that the
instrument will use the second rather than the first echo from the back
surface of the material being measured. This may result in a thickness
reading that is TWICE what it should be. Responsibility for proper use of
the instrument and recognition of this phenomenon rests solely with the
user of the instrument.

FS-200 Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge
INTRODUCTION
The Fuji Electric model FS-200 is a precision Ultrasonic Micrometer.
Based on the same operating principles as SONAR, the FS-200 is capable
of measuring the thickness of various materials with accuracy as high as ±
0.001 inches, or ± 0.01 millimeters. The principle advantage of ultrasonic
measurement over traditional methods is that ultrasonic measurements can
be performed with access to only one side of the material being measured.
This manual is presented in three sections. The first section covers
operation of the FS-200, and explains the keypad controls and display.
The second section provides guidelines in selecting a transducer for a
specific application. The last section provides application notes and a table
of sound velocity values for various materials.
Fuji Electric maintains a customer support resource in order to assist

FS-200 Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge
OPERATION
The FS-200 interacts with the operator through the membrane keypad
and the LCD display. The functions of the various keys on the keypad are
detailed below, followed by an explanation of the display and its various
symbols.
The Keypad
This key is used to turn the FS-200 on and off. When the gauge is
turned ON, it will first perform a brief display test by illuminating all of the
segments in the display. After one second, the gauge will display the
internal software version number. After displaying the version number, the
display will show "0.000" (or "0.00" if using metric units), indicating the
gauge is ready for use.
The FS-200 is turned OFF by pressing the ON/OFF key. The gauge
has a special memory that retains all of its settings even when the power is
off. The gauge also features an auto-powerdown mode designed to
conserve battery life. If the gauge is idle for 5 minutes, it will turn itself off.
3
Fuji Electric
The PRB-0 key is used to "zero" the FS-200 in much the same way that
a mechanical micrometer is zeroed. If the gauge is not zeroed correctly, all
of the measurements that the gauge makes may be in error by some fixed
value. Refer to page 12 for an explanation of this important procedure.
The CAL key is used to enter and exit the FS-200's calibration mode.
This mode is used to adjust the sound-velocity value that the FS-200 will
use when calculating thickness. The gauge will either calculate the soundvelocity from a sample of the material being measured, or allow a known
velocity value to be entered directly. Refer to page 13 for an explanation of
the two CAL functions available.
The IN/MM key is used to switch back and forth between English and
metric units. This key may be used at any time, whether the gauge is
displaying a thickness (IN or MM) or a velocity value (IN/µs or M/s).
4
FS-200 Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge
The UP arrow key has two functions. When the FS-200 is in calibration
mode, this key is used to increase numeric values on the display. An autorepeat function is built in, so that when the key is held down, numeric
values will increment at an increasing rate. When the FS-200 is not in
calibration mode, the UP arrow key switches the SCAN measurement
mode on and off. Refer to page 17 for an explanation of the SCAN
measurement mode.
The DOWN arrow key has two functions. When the FS-200 is in the
CAL mode, this key is used to decrease numeric values on the display. An
auto-repeat function is built in, so that when the key is held down, numeric
values will decrement at an increasing rate. When the FS-200 is not in
calibration mode, the DOWN arrow key switches the display backlight
between three available settings. OFF will be displayed when the backlight
is switched off. AUTO will be displayed when the backlight is set to
automatic mode, and ON will be displayed when the backlight is set to stay
on. In the AUTO setting, the backlight will illuminate when the FS-200 is
actually making a measurement.
5
Fuji Electric
The Display
The numeric portion of the display consists of 4 complete digits
preceded by a leading "1", and is used to display numeric values, as well
as occasional simple words, to indicate the status of various settings.
When the FS-200 is displaying thickness measurements, the display will
hold the last value measured, until a new measurement is made.
Additionally, when the battery voltage is low, the entire display will
begin to flash. When this occurs, the batteries should be replaced.
These eight vertical bars form the Stability Indicator. When the FS-200
is idle, only the left-most bar and the underline will be on. When the gauge
is making a measurement, six or seven of the bars should be on. If fewer
than five bars are on, the FS-200 is having difficulty achieving a stable
measurement, and the thickness value displayed will most likely be
erroneous.
6
FS-200 Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge
When the IN symbol is on, the FS-200 is displaying a thickness value in
inches. The maximum thickness that can be displayed is 19.999 inches.
When the MM symbol is on, the FS-200 is displaying a thickness value
in millimeters. If the displayed thickness exceeds 199.99 millimeters, the
decimal point will shift automatically to the right, allowing values up to
1999.9 millimeters to be displayed.
When the IN symbol is on, in conjunction with the /µs symbol, the FS200 is displaying a sound-velocity value in inches-per-microsecond.
When the M symbol is on, in conjunction with the /s symbol, the FS200 is displaying a sound-velocity value in meters-per-second.

Fuji Electric
The Transducer
The transducer is the "business end" of the FS-200. It transmits and
receives the ultrasonic sound waves which the FS-200 uses to calculate
the thickness of the material being measured. The transducer connects to
the FS-200 via the attached cable, and two coaxial connectors. When
using transducers manufactured by Fuji Electric, the orientation of the dual
coaxial connectors is not critical: either plug may be fitted to either socket in
the FS-200.
The transducer must be used correctly in order for the FS-200 to
produce accurate, reliable measurements. Below is a short description of
the transducer, followed by instructions for its use.
This is a bottom view of a typical transducer. The two semicircles of the
wearface are visible, as is the barrier separating them. One of the
semicircles is responsible for conducting ultrasonic sound into the material
being measured, and the other semicircle is responsible for conducting the
echoed sound back into the transducer. When the transducer is placed
against the material being measured, it is the area directly beneath the
center of the wearface that is being measured.
8
FS-200 Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge
This is a top view of a typical transducer. Press against the top with the
thumb or index finger to hold the transducer in place. Moderate pressure is
sufficient, as it is only necessary to keep the transducer stationary, and the
wearface seated flat against the surface of the material being measured.
Making Measurements
In order for the transducer to do its job, there must be no air gaps
between the wear-face and the surface of the material being measured.
This is accomplished with the use of a "coupling" fluid, commonly called
"couplant". This fluid serves to "couple", or transmit, the ultrasonic sound
waves from the transducer, into the material, and back again. Before
attempting to make a measurement, a small amount of couplant should be
applied to the surface of the material being measured. Typically, a single
droplet of couplant is sufficient.
After applying couplant, press the transducer (wearface down) firmly
against the area to be measured. The Stability Indicator should have six or
seven bars darkened, and a number should appear in the display. If the
FS-200 has been properly "zeroed" (see page 12) and set to the correct
sound velocity (see page 13), the number in the display will indicate the
actual thickness of the material directly beneath the transducer.
9
Fuji Electric
If the Stability Indicator has fewer than five bars darkened, or the
numbers on the display seem erratic, first check to make sure that there is
an adequate film of couplant beneath the transducer, and that the
transducer is seated flat against the material. If the condition persists, it
may be necessary to select a different transducer (size or frequency) for
the material being measured. See page 18 for information on transducer
selection.
While the transducer is in contact with the material being measured, the
FS-200 will perform four measurements every second, updating its display
as it does so. When the transducer is removed from the surface, the
display will hold the last measurement made.
IMPORTANT
Occasionally, a small film of couplant will be drawn out between the
transducer and the surface as the transducer is removed. When this
happens, the FS-200 may perform a measurement through this couplant
film, resulting in a measurement that is larger or smaller than it should be.
This phenomenon is obvious when one thickness value is observed while
the transducer is in place, and another value is observed after the
transducer is removed.
10
FS-200 Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge
Condition and Preparation of Surfaces
In any ultrasonic measurement scenario, the shape and roughness of
the test surface are of paramount importance. Rough, uneven surfaces
may limit the penetration of ultrasound through the material, and result in
unstable, and therefore unreliable, measurements. The surface being
measured should be clean, and free of any small particulate matter, rust, or
scale. The presence of such obstructions will prevent the transducer from
seating properly against the surface. Often, a wire brush or scraper will be
helpful in cleaning surfaces. In more extreme cases, rotary sanders or
grinding wheels may be used, though care must be taken to prevent
surface gouging, which will inhibit proper transducer coupling.
Extremely rough surfaces, such as the pebble-like finish of some cast
irons, will prove most difficult to measure. These kinds of surfaces act on
the sound beam like frosted glass on light, the beam becomes diffused and
scattered in all directions.
In addition to posing obstacles to measurement, rough surfaces
contribute to excessive wear of the transducer, particularly in situations
where the transducer is "scrubbed" along the surface. Transducers should
be inspected on a regular basis, for signs of uneven wear of the wearface.
If the wearface is worn on one side more than another, the sound beam
penetrating the test material may no longer be perpendicular to the material
surface. In this case, it will be difficult to exactly locate tiny irregularities in
the material being measured, as the focus of the soundbeam no longer lies
directly beneath the transducer.
11
Fuji Electric
Probe Zero
Setting the Zero Point of the FS-200 is important for the same reason
that setting the zero on a mechanical micrometer is important. If the gauge
is not "zeroed" correctly, all of the measurements the gauge makes will be
in error by some fixed number. When the FS-200 is "zeroed", this fixed
error value is measured and automatically corrected for in all subsequent
measurements. The FS-200 may be "zeroed" by performing the following
procedure:
Performing a Probe-Zero
1) Make sure the FS-200 is on.
2) Plug the transducer into the FS-200. Make sure that the
connectors are fully engaged. Check that the wearface of the
transducer is clean and free of any debris.
3) On the top of the FS-200, above the display, is the metal probedisc. Apply a single droplet of ultrasonic couplant to the face of this
disc.
4) Press the transducer against the probe-disc, making sure that the
transducer sits flat against the surface of the probe-disc. The
display should show some thickness value, and the Stability
Indicator should have nearly all its bars illuminated.
5) While the transducer is firmly coupled to the probe-disc, press the
PRB-0 key on the keypad. The FS-200 will display "Prb0" while it
is calculating its zero point.
6) Remove the transducer from the probe-disc.
12
FS-200 Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge
At this point, the FS-200 has successfully calculated it's internal error
factor, and will compensate for this value in any subsequent
measurements. When performing a "probe-zero", the FS-200 will always
use the sound-velocity value of the built-in probe-disc, even if some other
velocity value has been entered for making actual measurements. Though
the FS-200 will remember the last "probe-zero" performed, it is generally a
good idea to perform a "probe-zero" whenever the gauge is turned on, as
well as any time a different transducer is used. This will ensure that the
instrument is always correctly zeroed.
Calibration
In order for the FS-200 to make accurate measurements, it must be set
to the correct sound-velocity for the material being measured. Different
types of material have different inherent sound-velocities. For example, the
velocity of sound through steel is about 0.233 inches-per-microsecond,
versus that of aluminum, which is about 0.248 inches-per-microsecond. If
the gauge is not set to the correct sound-velocity, all of the measurements
the gauge makes will be erroneous by some fixed percentage. The onepoint calibration is the simplest and most commonly used calibration
procedure - optimizing linearity over large ranges. The two- point
calibration allows for greater accuracy over small ranges by calculating the
probe zero and velocity. The FS-200 provides three simple methods for
setting the sound-velocity, described in the following pages.
13
Fuji Electric
Calibration to a known thickness
NOTE: This procedure requires a sample piece of the specific
material to be measured, the exact thickness of which is known,
e.g. from having been measured by some other means.
1) Make sure the FS-200 is on.
2) Perform a Probe-Zero (refer to page 12)
3) Apply couplant to the sample piece.
4) Press the transducer against the sample piece, making sure that
the transducer sits flat against the surface of the sample. The
display should show some (probably incorrect) thickness value,
and the Stability Indicator should have nearly all its bars on.
5) Having achieved a stable reading, remove the transducer. If the
displayed thickness changes from the value shown while the
transducer was coupled, repeat step 4.
6) Press the CAL key. The IN (or MM) symbol should begin flashing.
7) Use the UP and DOWN arrow keys to adjust the displayed
thickness up or down, until it matches the thickness of the sample
piece.
8) Press the CAL key again. The IN/µ s (or M/s) symbols should
begin flashing. The FS-200 is now displaying the sound velocity
value it has calculated based on the thickness value that was
entered in step 7.
9) Press the CAL key once more to exit the calibration mode. The
FS-200 is now ready to perform measurements.
14
FS-200 Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge
Calibration to a known velocity
NOTE: This procedure requires that the operator know the soundvelocity of the material to be measured. A table of common
materials and their sound-velocities can be found in Appendix C.
1) Make sure the FS-200 is on.
2) Press the CAL key to enter calibration mode. If the IN (or MM)
symbol is flashing, press the CAL key again, so that the IN/µs (or
M/s) symbols are flashing.
3) Use the UP and DOWN arrow keys to adjust the displayed velocity
up or down, until it matches the sound-velocity of the material to be
measured.
4) Press the CAL key once more to exit the calibration mode. The
FS-200 is now ready to perform measurements.
NOTE: At any time during the calibration procedure (IN, MM, IN/µ s, or
M/s flashing in the display), pressing the PRB-0 key will restore the gauge
to the factory default sound-velocity for steel (0.233 IN/µs).
To achieve the most accurate measurements possible, it is generally
advisable to always calibrate the FS-200 to a sample piece of known
thickness. Material composition (and thus, its sound-velocity) sometimes
varies from lot to lot and from manufacturer to manufacturer. Calibration to
a sample of known thickness will ensure that the gauge is set as closely as
possible to the sound velocity of the material to be measured.
15
Fuji Electric
Two Point Calibration
NOTE: This procedure requires that the operator has two known
thickness points on the test piece that are representative of the
range to be measured.
1) Make sure the FS-200 is on.
2) Perform a Probe-Zero (refer to page 12)
3) Apply couplant to the sample piece.
4) Press the transducer against the sample piece, at the first/second
calibration point, making sure that the transducer sits flat against
the surface of the sample. The display should show some
(probably incorrect) thickness value, and the Stability Indicator
should have nearly all its bars on.
5) Having achieved a stable reading, remove the transducer. If the
displayed thickness changes from the value shown while the
transducer was coupled, repeat step 4.
6) Press the CAL key. The IN (or MM) symbol should begin flashing.
7) Use the UP and DOWN arrow keys to adjust the displayed
thickness up or down, until it matches the thickness of the sample
piece.
8) Press the Probe key. The display will flash 1OF2. Repeat steps 3
through 8 on the second calibration point. The FS-200 will now
display the sound velocity value it has calculated based on the
thickness values that were entered in step 7.
9) The FS-200 is now ready to perform measurements.
16
FS-200 Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge
Scan Mode
While the FS-200 excels at making single point measurements, it is
sometimes desirable to examine a larger region, searching for the thinnest
point. The FS-200 includes a feature, called Scan Mode, which allows it to
do just that.
In normal operation, the FS-200 performs and displays four
measurements every second, which is quite adequate for single
measurements. In Scan Mode, however, the gauge performs sixteen
measurements every second. While the transducer is in contact with the
material being measured, the FS-200 is keeping track of the lowest
measurement it finds. The transducer may be "scrubbed" across a surface,
and any brief interruptions in the signal will be ignored. When the
transducer loses contact with the surface for more than a second, the FS200 will display the smallest measurement it found.
When the FS-200 is not in calibration mode, press the UP arrow key to
turn Scan Mode on and off. A brief message will appear in the display
confirming the operation. When the transducer is removed from the
material being scanned, the FS-200 will (after a brief pause) display the
smallest measurement it found.
17
Fuji Electric
TRANSDUCER SELECTION
The FS-200 is inherently capable of performing measurements on a
wide range of materials, from various metals to glass and plastics.
Different types of material, however, will require the use of different
transducers. Choosing the correct transducer for a job is critical to being
able to easily perform accurate and reliable measurements. The following
paragraphs highlight the important properties of transducers, which should
be considered when selecting a transducer for a specific job.
Generally speaking, the best transducer for a job is one that sends
sufficient ultrasonic energy into the material being measured such that a
strong, stable echo is received by the FS-200. Several factors affect the
strength of ultrasound as it travels. These are outlined below:
• Initial Signal Strength
The stronger a signal is to begin with, the stronger its return echo
will be. Initial signal strength is largely a factor of the size of the
ultrasound emitter in the transducer. A large emitting area will send
more energy into the material being measured than a small emitting
area. Thus, a so-called "1/2-inch" transducer will emit a stronger signal
than a "1/4-inch" transducer.
• Absorption and Scattering
As ultrasound travels through any material, it is partly absorbed. If
the material through which it travels has any grain structure, the sound
waves will also experience scattering. Both of these effects reduce the
18
FS-200 Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge
strength of the waves, and thus, the FS-200's ability to detect the
returning echo.
Higher frequency ultrasound is absorbed and scattered more than
ultrasound of a lower frequency. While it may seem that using a lower
frequency transducer might be better in every instance, low frequencies
are less directional than high frequencies. Thus, a higher frequency
transducer would be a better choice for detecting the exact location of
small pits or flaws in the material being measured.
• Geometry of the Transducer
The physical constraints of the measuring environment sometimes
determine a transducer's suitability for a given job. Some transducers
may simply be too large to be used in tightly confined areas. Also, the
surface area available for contacting with the transducer may be limited,
requiring the use of a transducer with a small wearface. Measuring on
a curved surface, such as an engine cylinder wall, may require the use
of a transducer with a matching curved wearface.
• Temperature of the Material
When it is necessary to measure on surfaces that are exceedingly
hot, high temperature transducers must be used. These transducers
are built using special materials and techniques that allow them to
withstand high temperatures without damage. Additionally, care must
be taken when performing a "Probe-Zero" or "Calibration to Known
Thickness" with a high temperature transducer. See Appendix B for
more information on measuring materials with a high temperature
transducer.
19
Fuji Electric
Selection of the proper transducer is often a matter of tradeoffs between
various characteristics. It may be necessary to experiment with a variety of
transducers in order to find one that works well for a given job. Fuji Electric
can provide assistance in choosing a transducer, and offers a broad
selection of transducers for evaluation in specialized applications.

APPENDIX B
Application Notes
• Measuring pipe and tubing
When measuring a piece of pipe to determine the thickness of the pipe
wall, orientation of the transducers is important. If the diameter of the pipe
is larger than approximately 4 inches, measurements should be made with
the transducer oriented so that the gap in the wearface is perpendicular (at
right angle) to the long axis of the pipe. For smaller pipe diameters, two
measurements should be performed, one with the wearface gap
perpendicular, another with the gap parallel to the long axis of the pipe.
The smaller of the two displayed values should then be taken as the
thickness at that point.
Perpendicular
Parallel
• Measuring hot surfaces
The velocity of sound through a substance is dependant upon its
temperature. As materials heat up, the velocity of sound through them
decreases. In most applications with surface temperatures less than about
200°F (100°C), no special procedures must be observed. At temperatures
23
Fuji Electric
above this point, the change in sound velocity of the material being
measured starts to have a noticeable effect upon ultrasonic measurement.
At such elevated temperatures, it is recommended that the user perform
a calibration procedure (refer to page 11) on a sample piece of known
thickness, which is at or near the temperature of the material to be
measured. This will allow the FS-200 to correctly calculate the velocity of
sound through the hot material.
When performing measurements on hot surfaces, it may also be
necessary to use a specially constructed high-temperature transducer.
These transducers are built using materials which can withstand high
temperatures. Even so, it is recommended that the probe be left in contact
with the surface for as short a time as needed to acquire a stable
measurement. While the transducer is in contact with a hot surface, it will
begin to heat up itself, and through thermal expansion and other effects,
may begin to adversely affect the accuracy of measurements.
• Measuring laminated materials
Laminated materials are unique in that their density (and therefore
sound-velocity) may vary considerably from one piece to another. Some
laminated materials may even exhibit noticeable changes in sound-velocity
across a single surface. The only way to reliably measure such materials is
by performing a calibration procedure on a sample piece of known
thickness. Ideally, this sample material should be a part of the same piece
being measured, or at least from the same lamination batch. By calibrating
to each test piece individually, the effects of variation of sound-velocity will
be minimized.
24
FS-200 Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge
An additional important consideration when measuring laminates, is that
any included air gaps or pockets will cause an early reflection of the
ultrasound beam. This effect will be noticed as a sudden decrease in
thickness in an otherwise regular surface. While this may impede accurate
measurement of total material thickness, it does provide the user with
positive indication of air gaps in the laminate.
