Which generator to use in EN 12668 # 8.4.7?
What are the waveforms for these measurements?

Regards,

Dear colleagues,
there must be a misunderstanding:

Ultrasonic probes are covered by EN 12668-2 (not by part 1 which is for ultrasonic isntruments only).

Periodical checks are only required for instruments (part 1), not for probes (part 2).

Best regards

Extended Range Variable Wall® Piping Calibration Blocks for Longseam Inspection

...
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.
