ISONIC 2007 uniquely combines functionality and mobility of high performance portable digital single or dual channel ultrasonic flaw detector with recording, imaging, and data processing capabilities of smart computerized dual channel inspection system
ISONIC 2007 resolves a variety of ultrasonic inspection tasks:

  • A-Scan-based inspection using conventional pulse echo, back echo attenuation, and through transmission techniques

  • Single Channel Straight Line Scanning and Recording:
    • Thickness Profile B-Scan imaging and recording is performed through continuous capturing of wall thickness readings along probe trace
    • B-Scan cross-sectional imaging and recording of defects for longitudinal and shear wave inspection is performed through continuous measuring of echo amplitudes and reflectors coordinates along probe trace
    • CB-Scan horizontal plane-view imaging and recording of defects for shear, surface, and guided wave inspection is performed through continuous measuring of echo amplitudes and reflectors coordinates along probe trace
    • TOFD Inspection – RF B-Scan and D-Scan Imaging

    For Single Channel Straight Line Scanning and Recording it may be used:
    • Time-based mode (built-in real time clock)
    • True-to-location mode (built-in incremental encoder interface)

  • Dual Channel Straight Line Scanning and Recording:
    • Thickness Profile B-Scan imaging and recording is performed through continuous capturing of wall thickness readings along probe trace
    • CB-Scan horizontal plane-view imaging and recording of defects for shear, surface, and guided wave inspection is performed through continuous measuring of echo amplitudes and reflectors coordinates along probe trace
    • TOFD Inspection – RF B-Scan and D-Scan Imaging

    For Dual Channel Straight Line Scanning and Recording it may be used:
    • True-to-location mode (built-in incremental encoder interface)

  • XY-Scanning and Recording with C-Scan and B-Scan imaging is also possible if using optional USB interface to multi-axis mechanical encoder and appropriate software package

For all types of Straight Line Scanning and XY-Scanning records A-Scans are captured for each probe position along probe trace and may be played back and evaluated off-line at postprocessing stage. This unique feature makes it possible off-line defect characterization through echo-dynamic pattern analysis

Thickness Profile B-Scan Data recorded during Straight Line Scanning is presented in the format compatible with various Risk Based Inspection and Maintenance procedures

ISONIC 2007 has practically unlimited capacity for storing of:
  • Single A-Scans accompanied with corresponding instrument settings
  • Ultrasonic signal spectrum graphs (FFT) accompanied with corresponding RF A-Scans and instrument settings
  • Various A-Scans sequence records along with corresponding Thickness Profiles, B-Scans, CB-Scans or TOFD Maps depending on mode of operation selected; each record is accompanied with corresponding instrument settings
