Use of 2D Array Probes Two-rows 2D Array probes (also known as Dual Linear Array probes) organized as up 2 X 16 may be connected to ISONIC 3510  directly; the probes containing more than 32 elements and organized as 2 X N whereas N < 33 should be connected through the extension terminal (extender) part # S 4922A064D032 For some inspection applications such as defects detection in the tube-to-tubesheet welds of the heat exchangers, corrosion detection, etc the dual linear array probes may improve the near to surface resolution significantly. The wedged dual linear array probes allow imporving of the signal-to-noise ratio for some applications related to the compression wave inspection of coarse grain materials.
ISONIC 3510 allows performing of both S-Scan and B-Scan coverage with use of dual linear array probes C-Scan and B-Scan images for the 3 mm wall thickness tube with several small imperfections
PA UT Applications Thanks to it's unique smart, flexible, and "teachable" architecture combined with the outstanding ultrasonic performance ISONIC 3510 has been an ideal platform for the practically unlimited number of standard and customized inspection software applications, the number of which is increasing permanetly.Each application is dedicated to the resolving of the inspection tasks related to the certain class of parts and materials to be tested (the similar shape parts varying by the overall dimensions and the dimensions of particular segments). Since the part to be inspected is outlined the scan plan is created just in few moments providing the True-to- Geometry Volume Corrected Coverage and imaging. This makes it possible to inspect complex geometry parts easily while the non Sonotron NDT made phased array instruments are practically not applicable.
XY Scanning ISONIC 3510 supports the encoded XY-scanning and recording with PA probe for the variety of the inspection tasks The typical inspection tasks such as corrosion mapping, detection of the impact damages in in the coposite panels, flaw detection in various materials, and the like are resolved through to the compression wave inspection with use of linear- or 2D- array probes with / without detachable delay lines, etc. The XY-Scan software application is required for the said inspections; use of various XY-scanners from the simplest Draw-Wire to the high precision is supported There is 100%-raw data capturing performed while scanning so the inspection results may be presented in the form of the Amplitude- or Depth C-Scan (switcheable), 3D image, various slices either longitudinal, transversal or horizontal, and the like; every cross-sectional view corresponding to the desired probe position and every A-Scan may be played back and evaluated. The data noted above may be reproduced at the various Gain and Gate settings:
ISONIC Roverscan The ISONIC RoverScan technique allows inspecting of the complex geometry parts such as turbine blades, pipe-to-pipe welds, and the like through XY-scanning
In the said parts the cross-sectional shape varies along the scanning trace so the true-to-position material-shape- accommodation of the cross-sectional coverage focal laws is performed by ISONIC 3510 in real time whilst manipulating PA probe over them; in other words: for every point of the probe trace the focal laws are accommodated dynamically in order to provide the complete true-to-geometry cross sectional coverage To follow the ISONIC Roverscan technique the 3D-model (CAD, Parasolid, etc) of the part to be tested is used by the instrument in the following way: At the pre-inspection stage the 3D-model of the part is “implanted” into the instrument's memory as a template At the scanning stage the coordinates of the PA probe manipulated over the part are taken by the instrument through the appropriate encoding means and the accommodation of the focal laws is performed automatically in real time at every point of the probe trace: o the corresponding true-to-location cross-sectional scan plan (ray tracing) is generated and implemented so the cross- section of the part under the probe is “filled” with the ultrasonic beams accordingly providing the needful coverage o the true-to-geometry imaging of the cross-section is provided so on receiving an echo from an obstacle either geometry or internal discontinuity (imperfection) the reflector is imaged in its real position through settling of the appropriate mark on the image
o all cross-sectional views obtained during the scanning are pushed into the 3D-template in the instrument’s memory and stored along with the corresponding raw data (A-Scans) sets On completion of the scanning the 3D-image of the part with the imperfections found is generated
Conventional UT and TOFD Modalities For the single conventional channel operation ISONIC 3510 provides: Fully featured A-Scan inspection Line scanning recording and imaging of the following types: o Thickness B-Scan; o True-to-Geometry flaw detection B-Scan for angle beam and straight beam probes; o Flaw detection CB-Scan for the guided, surface, and shear wave probes inspections; o High resolution flaw detection B-Scan; o Fully featured TOFDinspection Comprehensive postprocessing toolkit This fully corresponds to the scope of functionality provided by the very popular Sonotron NDT's portable ultrasonic flaw detector and recorder ISONIC 2005 / ISONIC STAR / ISONIC 2020 ISONIC 3510 also provides dual-channel strip chart recording being capable to form the strips of all known types: B-Scan (Map); PE (Amplitude + Time of Flight); TOFD; Coupling The comprehensive off-line analysis and data reporting toolkit for all kinds of data captured using conventional UT and TOFD modalities is built-in This fully corresponds to the scope of functionality provided by the very well known Sonotron NDT's portable multi-channel ultrasonic flaw detector and recorder ISONIC 2008 in dual-channel configuration In the ISONIC 3510 the conventional and phased array channels may be used simultaneously. For example Sonotron NDT's DUET_M technology supposes the use of a pair of wedged linear array probes for the multi-group inspection of welds from both sides and, at parallel, the use of: up to 2 additional pairs of regular TOFD probes; OR up to 2 pairs of conventional angle beam shear wave probes for the K-Pattern pitch-catch detection of the transversal cracks OR combining of the above
Remote Control - UT over IP Thanks to the Client – Server software architecture ISONIC 3510 may be controlled from a regular PC running under Win’XP, 7, 8, 10. There is no need in the special software for that purpose, just download and install in the PC the same software as used in the instrument The software installed in the PC should be of the same release as the software running in the ISONIC 3510 and correspond to the instrument model Installing the Instrument Software in the PC Upon started the installation routine generates the dialogue as below on the PC screen:
It is necessary to check Install client only and uncheck Run on windows startup option then to click on Install button. Further actions are taken by the installation routine automatically Controlling the Instrument from the PC The instrument and the PC should be connected to the same LAN or to the router distributing IP automatically. The instrument should be switched on: it will generates the initial Startup menu. During the whole remote control session the instrument should remain with the same Startup menu on the screen. In the PC the same software should be lounched but on appearing of the Startup menu it is necessary to selected from the list of the Idle equipment:
Since the connection is established ISONIC 2010 unit enters into the slave mode being connected to the probes and encoder and running the just the server routine while the control PC performs full control of the instrument, data acquisition, processing, and storage on the local drives through running of the client software in the same manner as the instrument does when operating autonomously
