ISONIC PA AUT

Super Powerful All-Weather-Operation Platform / Core Element for
Integration of Automatic Ultrasonic Inspection (AUT) Systems
Combining Phased Array (PA), Conventional, and TOFD Modalities




Since 2007 ISONIC PA AUT - the super powerful all-weather-operation platform is used widely in the world as a core component of the integrated Automatic Ultrasonic Inspection (AUT) systems combining Phased Array (PA), conventional, and TOFD modalities

Among the typical applications resolved by ISONIC PA AUT based automatic inspection systems are:
  • AUT of girth welds according to ASTM-1961
  • AUT of heavy thickness welds in the pressure vessels, reactors, etc according to radiography replacement codes
  • AUT of the railway axles and wheels
  • Immersion Ultrasonic Testing (IUT) of various materials and parts
  • IUT validation of the results obtained by various AUT machines
In March 2018 it was launched the next generation ISONIC PA AUT platform carrying the features listed below:
  • Fully parallel 128:128 (2 X 64:64 / 4 X 32:32) PA and 16 independent conventional / TOFD channels carried by portable light weight unit controllable either over Ethernet OR directly using the standard PC keyboard and mouse
  • Expandable to 256:256 (2 X 128:128 / 4 X 64:64) PA functionality
  • Operating up to 4 PA probes and 16 conventional probes / pairs of probes simultaneously
  • Up to 4096 PA and 512 conventional / TOFD channels functionality thanks to the ability of multiple units operation (up to 32) controlled from one computer
  • Parallel A/D conversion and on-the-fly digital phasing and superimposing of PA elements signals, no multiplexing involved
  • Free settling of emitting and receiving aperture
  • Hardware / software synchronization
  • 3 motor powering and control terminals
  • 3 encoder terminals
  • Built-in UPS (uninterruptible power supply)
  • Emergency stop button
  • Rugged IP 67-sealed case mountable on scanner
  • All-Weather-Operation: -50°C ... +60°C
  • No intake air
  • No water or other type of cooling required
  • 9 kg weight
