Description:

USB-UT350RT is a tone-burst pulser/receiver and an analog-to-digital converter that connects to a computer USB port. The device supports up to 16 channels and generates a series of bipolar pulses with user-defined pulse frequency and pulse cycles for each channel. The pulses are transmitted to ultrasonic transducers, which convert the electrical pulses into ultrasound and propagate them through the tested material. The transducer then receives the echoes 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 50 million samples per second. The digital data is transferred to the computer at about 40 MB per second.

Adjustable parameters include pulse frequency, pulse cycles, receiver gain, DC offset, rectifications, sampling rates, trigger source, and adjustable trigger delay. Standard scope software for MS Windows is included with the device.

One of the unique features is the onboard DSP chip. It is capable of high-speed data processing for real-time peak detection, data compression, spray marker control, factory process control and feedback. The device can run as a stand-alone tone burst pulser/receiver and data processing system without being connected to a computer. The parameters are configured from a computer prior to remote operation.

Applications include flaw detector for solid materials (wood, rubber and concrete) and distance measuring device (through air). Custom software is available for your applications upon request.

The USB-UT35RT is one of the most affordable ultrasonic testing instruments on the market.
