The CG-5 is the latest, gravity meter from Scintrex Ltd. The CG-5 can be operated with minimal operator training, and automated features significantly reduce the possibility of reading errors.
Data download bottlenecks have been eased with the provision of a fast USB interface and flexible data formats.
Noise rejection has been improved through a series of automated correction functions which are easy to maintain.
By constantly monitoring electronic tilt sensors, the CG-5 can automatically compensate for errors in gravity meter tilt. Due to low mass and excellent elastic properties of fused quartz, tares are virtually eliminated. The CG-5 can be transported over very rough roads and the residual drift remains low. The CG-5 can withstand a shock of more than 20G and the tare will be no more than 5 micro Gal.
The CG-5 offers the best possible repeatability. Over many 10’s of field readings the CG-5 will repeat to within a standard deviation of 0.005mGal. An inbuilt radio frequency remote aid maintains instrument stability after levelling.
Supplied with an integrated Garmin 12 channel smart GPS antenna the CG-5 locates itself to within <15m with Standard GPS, and <3m if SBAS corrections are received.
Easily transportable, the CG-5’s ability to hot swap batteries permits extended battery life ensuring the sensor temperature can be maintained.

CG-5 instrument with all accessories
All CG-5 transit cases will be strapped to a standard sized pallet for shipping. This helps to ensure the instrument is handled correctly during shipping.
It is common for the CG-5 batteries to fully deplete when shipped overseas via courier, to avoid this we recommend hand carrying the equipment on a commercial flight. Geomatrix will support any costumer who wishes to transport a CG-5 in this manner by delivering the instrument to Luton Airport.
