Ultrasonic Tone Burst Pulser/Receiver Board for PCI Bus
The PCIPR300T is a tone burst pulser/receiver board for the PCI bus. The board generates a series pulse chain which is transmitted to an ultrasonic transducer. The transducer converts the electrical excitation pulse to an ultrasonic pulse which then propagates into the test material or couplant. The transducer also receives the reflected echoes from the interface and converts the ultrasonic pulse back into an electrical signal which is then processed by the on-board receiver. The signal from the Signal Out connector can be displayed by an oscilloscope or digitized by an analog-to-digital converter board. This process is entirely adjustable by the end user - configurable properties include: pulse voltage, pulse frequency, number of pulse cycles, pulse/echo or through transmission mode, receiver gain, DC offset, low-pass filter, high-pass filter, rectification, trigger source (internal or external), digital inputs and outputs, and internal trigger rates.
Optional add-ons include an EXT TRIG connector, a trigger-sync output connector, a logarithmic amplifier, encoder counters, a higher pulse voltage, distance amplitude correction (DAC), and Windows software development kits.
When used in conjunction with our DT16T 16-channel pulser/receiver switching board, the PCIPR300T becomes a multi-channel ultrasonic inspection system capable of up to 256 channels. Multiple PCIPR300T boards can be installed in one computer to create a multi-channel ultrasonic system capable of firing multiple transducers and acquiring data at the same time. For your analog-to-digital conversion needs, please refer to our PCIUT3100T board - a 100 MHz analog-to-digital converter for PCI bus.
