Multi-Channel Pulser/Receiver and 160 MSPS A/D Device with Ethernet Interface
EUT3160 is a square pulser/receiver and EUT3160T is a tone burst pulser/receiver with an analog-to-digital converter and an Ethernet interface. This product comes in five models: 1, 2, 4, 8 and 16 channels . The device generates a series of pulses with user-defined pulse frequency and pulse cycles from T connectors. The pulses are transmitted to an ultrasonic transducer, and the transducer converts the electrical excitation pulses to ultrasound which is propagated into either the tested material or air. The transducer also receives the reflected echoes from the interface and converts the ultrasound back into an electrical signal. The on-board receiver processes the signal with the user defined parameters, and the A/D converter converts analog signals into digital data at a rate of up to 160 million samples per second. In addition, the digital data is transferred to a computer's RAM.
Adjustable parameters include pulse frequency, pulse cycles, receiver gain, DC offset, rectifications, sampling rates, trigger source, and adjustable trigger delay. A standard scope software for MS Windows is included with this device.
One of the unique features is the on-board FPGA chip witch is capable of processing data in real-time for peak detection, data compression, averaging, spray marker control, factory process control and feedback. With the on-board micro-controller, the device can run stand alone as a remote tone burst pulser/receiver and data processing system without being connected to a computer. The user can set up the parameters through the Ethernet and then save the parameters in the non-volatile memory. The device can load the parameters automatically after the device is powered up without any control from the computer.
The EUT3160 can be used as a smart flaw detector and distance measuring device with various software running at real-time. Custom software is available for your applications upon request.
