Phased Array Modality

  • 64/64 phased array electronics – independently adjustable emitting and receiving aperture, parallel A/D conversion and on-the-fly real time digital phasing
  • Phased array pulser receiver with image guided ray tracing
  • Cross-sectional B-Scan (E-Scan), Sector Scan (S-Scan), Tandem-B-Scan viewing accompanied with standards compliant A-Scan / Gate based evaluation
  • Thickness / Skip Correction for B-Scan / S-Scan viewings
  • Gain per Focal Law Control providing Angle Gain Compensation for S-Scan and other applicable compensations for wedge / delay sound path and losses variation, in-equivalency of array elements, etc
  • A-Scan, B-Scan, CB-Scan, and TOFD
  • DAC/TCG per focal law adjustment
  • Up To 20m Length of One Line Scanning Record
  • 3D data presentation through composing of Top (C-Scan), Side, End Views
  • Dealing with diffracted and mode converted signals – defects sizing and pattern recognition (delta technique, crack depth meter, etc

Conventional UT and TOFD Modalities

  • 1, or 8, or 16 additional conventional channels, each allows single / dual mode of operation
  • Thickness B-Scan
  • Flaw detection Angle / Thickness / Skip Corrected B-Scan
  • TOFD
  • Strip Chart
  • Stripped C-Scan
  • Parallel / Sequential Firing and A/D conversion
  • FFT signal analysis
Testing of solid and hollow shafts, axles, rods, billets, etc are among other applications improved significantly thanks to the easy-to-interpret advantage of True-to-Geometry imaging vs regular S-Scan and B-Scan.  
  • 100% raw data capturing

  • Built-in encoder port

  • Ethernet and 2 X USB Ports

  • Sealed keyboard and mouse

  • Powerful off-line data analysis software tools

  • Remote control

  • Light rugged case

  • Large (8.5”) bright touch screen

  • Direct printout

Sonotron : True to Geometry Display
 The below is a typical S-Scan Display - Which signal is the flaw - which signal is from geometry?
Sonotrons True to Geometry display clearly identifies flaw and geometry indications - simple - unambiguous display makes Phased Array much easier, quicker and more precise

Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing -  Why choose Sonotron?

Sonotron makes the first and only Phased Array ultrasonic instruments that I have seen that are both user understandable and user friendly.

I have been in the ultrasonic instrument business for more than 40 years and when I look at most Phased Array testers and hear the presentations I feel like a dummy. I simply can't get my head around the explanations that I hear. Well I found out that I'm not so dumb, what I have been hearing and seeing is to a large degree "smoke-and-mirrors" and just pain B.S.  It does not have to be so, Sonotrons PC based Phased Array Systems are relatively easy-to-understand and use and they are loaded with features to help you perform your inspections and record your test results.

True To Geometry Imaging

  • First define the weld geometry and dimensions using a easy to understand Grapical Interface (see below) 
  • Once the weld geometry is entered you are be provided with a intuitive ray tracing dialogue showing actual weld coverage with the proper probe location and angle steering range
  • This is followed by a live Sector-Scan with true-to-location defect indication.
  • To ensure detection of various flaw orientations several Sector and B-Scan tests can be performed simultaneously with use of the same probe and providing multi-group cross-section viewing and recording along the entire weld length.
