Tuning networks

I am having some problems with near-surface resolution when using a digital instrument. Transducers that work very well with an analog instrument (USIP12), do not work at all for nsr with my digital system. The digital instrument has only a few limited settings for damping and pulse amplitude. Does anyone manufacture a tuning network to help me overcome this damping/matching problem, so I can test my metal?

Re: Tuning networks
The USIP-12, though old, is an extremely high performance instrument. Few other sets are comparable. I suspect your problems will be more fundamental than just adding a tuning network! Generally these are only useful on instruments (such as thickness gauges) where there are minimal adjustments.

Ultrasonic flaw detection USIP-12 is by the device high ray discrimination, which is realized only at performance of three conditions:
1. short 10-20nc a pulse of generator;
2. broadband amplifier 1 - 20MHz;
3. broadband ultrasonic transducer.
It is obvious, that in your digital device the conditions 1 or (and) 2 are not executed.
