Hello Andre,

I don't know this particular model but on a Sitescan 230 with what sounds like the same problem you have do the following:

- 1st, power off the set
- 2nd, power on the set while holding down the 'memory' key
- 3rd, follow the instructions on the screen.

I hope this works for you.

Deston

Yeah ! That's the way, even before I have read your post I have done the same thing completely randomwise and it worked just fine, the device is a little jammed on it self, but now I know how to unjamm it when it does.

Lucky guess for me, good advice from you. People will now know about it.

Cheers and thanks.

Many thanks to my new best friend Deston! My old Sitescan 130 did the same thing last night, and your suggestion fixed the problem! I have since checked every function and all is well.

Extended Range Variable Wall® Piping Calibration Blocks for Longseam Inspection

This set of two blocks has been specially designed for situations where ultrasonic examination tak

es place circumferentially or “around the curve” for applications such as inspection of longseam welds in piping and vessels. Jointly designed by PH Tool and Holloway NDT, the blocks feature side-drilled hole reflectors positioned within novel compound-curves, each with multiple thickness steps. The unique design results in a light and compact form factor, with the largest block weighing just over 15 lbs and spanning just 16 ¾”. Coverage is provided for nominal pipe sizes from 6” to 10” in the small block and 12” to a whopping 56” in the large block. The compound OD curves and multiple wall thicknesses actually exceed ASME requirements, providing exceptional signal response and measurement accuracy. Properly managing beam divergence off the ID and stabilizing beam skew due to probe rocking is essential to maintaining a consistent calibration when inspecting lengthwise on curved surfaces.
