MicroPulse 5PA T/R

Overview

The MicroPulse family was developed as a flexible ultrasonic inspection platform, originally for use in the power and nuclear sector. It connects to the PC via Gigabit Ethernet with data transfer rates of up to 120 Megabytes per second achievable in 8- , 10-, 12- or 16-bit data output modes. The standard size enclosure accommodates 16 conventional channels and up to 128 phased array channels, all of which may be used for beam forming in any combination.  The second Hypertronics connector provides for up to 128 dedicated transmit channels for pitch-catch / through transmission type inspections without the need to invest in a 256-channel system.

Features

  • Scalable parallel architecture
  • Multiple units can be linked for a PA channel count of up to 1024
  • Any combination of channels may be used independently in Tx and Rx with a further separate 128 Tx channels
  • Open data format
  • Highest performance
  • Fast inspection speeds with parallel firing capability
  • Simple reliable communication over Ethernet

Software Platforms

The open and transparent data format make for a totally new experience when it comes to the choice of software platforms; no longer is the user forced down the one software platform fits all, resulting in amazingly complex and cluttered applications. Supplied in the box, Peak NDT’s ArrayGen software will get you started, then the choices are nearly unlimited. From very procedure based platforms like MIPS/GUIDE to user definable interfaces like InspectionWare and LabView. If a bespoke application is what’s required, then using Peak NDT’s FocalLaw calculation dll with the transparent data formats and standard sockets make writing custom applications a breeze.
