Description:

UltraScan-5L is an ultrasonic inspection and analysis system that includes:
- Inspection scanner
- Laptop computer with USB 2.0 pulser/receiver and high-speed digital to analog converter instrument

The system includes four applications: TOFD (time of flight diffraction) imaging, thickness mapping, X-axis flaw mapping, and Y-axis flaw mapping. The user interface includes A-scan, B-scan, C-scan, signal scope, real time mini-scope, 3-D display, and a control panel. Under the data analysis mode, the user can re-create the C-scan display by altering gate settings. Each A-scan retains its own unique gate settings. The user can generate a 3-D display of a C-scan instantaneously.

The system also generates a report with the following contents:
- A cover page including the project title and the report generation date
- A table of contents listing file descriptions and page numbers for each file
- Project information including project name, directory, start time, end time, project descriptions, and inspection log
- The B-scan and C-scan maps with user-defined scales
- TOFD images

The software is designed to simplify operating procedures; for example, the system automatically detects the attached scanner and sets up the appropriate parameters. It also supports any language supported by Windows - the program windows, message boxes, and hard-copy reports can be displayed in any language.

The MT scanner is an X-Y coordinate scanner which is used to inspect flat surfaces and pipes. The minimum diameter of pipe can be as small as 2 inches. Their magnetic wheels are ideal for quick setups on steel materials. Our optional scanner tracks can be used to inspect non-magnetic materials, using four suction cups to attach the scanner to the material to be inspected. The HS100 scanner is a single axis scanner, but it can also be used to generate C-scan maps. The scanners include portable TOFD, miniature TOFD, and deluxe TOFD for wide range inspection conditions.

UltraScan-5L is the best system for weld inspections. The computer battery can last up to 6 hours. The system and a μTOFD scanner can fit into a small, durable and water-proof brief case.

Other accessories include a coupling kit and custom cable lengths. The coupling kit consists of a water compressor, tubing, a Y connector, and a flow control valve. The 100-foot and 200-foot cables are built with differential line drivers and receivers which ensure encoder signal strength.
