ISonic 2008 - Page 2 ISonic 2008 - Eight Channel Ultrasonic Flaw Detector & Recorder
Multi-Channel Recording Multi-channel record includes few strips of the following types: TOFD Map Amplitude/TOF Pulse Echo Coupling Strips may appear in any combination created by an operator according to inspection procedure. Positioning of the probes in the scanner relatively to each other – offset – to be keyed in at pre-scanning stage to align the strips
256 gray levels TOFD strip represents sequence of RF A-Scans whereas brightness of points for each horizontal line is modulated according to corresponding signal level Main use TOFD strip is recording of TOFD channels data for weld inspection. TOFD strip is also useful for recording CHIME inspection and for some applications where obtaining of RF B-Scan is necessary
256 Colours Palette Map Strip represents sequence of A-Scans whereas colour of points for each horizontal line is coded according to corresponding signal level Main use Map Strip is recording of pulse echo inspections using either longitudinal, shear, surface, or guided waves
Amplitude / TOF Pulse Echo Strip represents peak amplitude and time of flight for signals matching with Gate and exceeding it’s threshold level Position of Amplitude Line on the strip is proportional to the signal height. Echo amplitude equal or exceeding 100% of A-Scan height brings Amplitude Line trace to full strip width level Width of gray Time of Flight (TOF) Rectangle is proportional to the signal position in the Gate. For signals, where the time of flight measurement point matches with the Gate end width of gray TOF Rectangle is equal to the full strip width For defects signals followed by strong geometry echoes Amplitude Line may represent either first or maximal signal amplitude depending on operator's choice while width of gray Time of Flight (TOF) Rectangle will represent position of the first signal crossing gate level Amplitude / TOF Pulse Echo Strip may be used for thickness/corrosion profiling and for various flaw detection tasks
Coupling Strip is formed through comparing amplitude of reference signal with the gate threshold. Green Sufficient Coupling record is provided for signals exceeding gate threshold; red Insufficient Coupling record is provided in opposite case 	 Both time-based and true-to-location strip chart creating is available. For true-to-location strip chart forming it is used built-in incremental encoder interface.Observation of A-Scan is possible for every channel whilst scanning. Strip accompanied with A-Scan is marked with     .  To observe A-Scan related to another strip it is necessary just to click on the strip selected
Position of each probe along scanning line is taken into account while forming strip chart through use of appropriate offset values keyed in at pre-scanning stage. Thanks to such feature the same defect detected by different probes will be indicated at the same longitudinal position in each corresponding strip Complete sequences of A-Scans for each strip are recorded during scanning making ISONIC 2008 inspection fully compatible with ASME 2235-9 Code Case for radiography replacement and other national and international codes. Upon scanning is completed strip chart accompanied with the entire raw data and instrument settings may be stored into a file.
Postrocessing of Multi-Channel Scanning Data Post-processing is featured with: Previewing and scrolling of whole strip chart Recovery of A-Scans for each channel through simple placement of cross-hair cursor above channel's strip
Composing combination of simultaneously visible strips  Conversion of any Map Strip into Amplitude / TOF Pulse Echo Strip and reversal
Varying Region of Interest (Gate) settings for every Amplitude / TOF Pulse Echo Strip Marking defects and generating of Strip Chart Inspection Report Post-processing each strip individually using applicable technology either TOFD, CB-Scan, or Thickness Profile including full scope of suitable procedures such as defects sizing, snap-shoots, off-line Gain correction, filtering, etc.
Converting combination of few strips into thickness, distance or amplitude C-Scan with further C-Scan analysis
Remote Control and Data Acquisition Usual Solution - Use of Umbilical
Usually multi-channel inspection is performed with use of manual, semi- automatic, or automatic scanner carrying all probes and position encoder, which are connected to the instrument using long umbilical. This conventional way may be implemented with use of ISONIC 2008, which is capable to drive probes and position encoder through up to 50 meters umbilical So far use of umbilical was accepted by NDT community an no- alternative solution despite low reliability, problems with signal to noise ratio, heavy weight and high cost
Alternative Solution Available for ISONIC 2008
An alternative to heavy, noisy, and expensive long umbilical is available at last. Thanks to low weight and compact size ISONIC 2008 may be easy fitted into a scanner and connected to probes and position encoder using short umbilical. In that case full remote control of ISONIC 2008 and observation of A-Scans and strip chart in real time may be performed through a PC. Communication between ISONIC 2008 instrument and remote PC may be provided using cheap and reliable crossover Ethernet cable of up to 200 meters length. It is important that there is no need in special software to be installed in the remote PC just standard Windows XP or Vista operating system Optional software and hardware drivers for control of automatic scanner motor are available
