urgent help required regarding Signal Acquisition problem in MS5800 ET equipment

Hello everyone!

We are using MS-5800 ET equipment for last 10 years but facing this problem for the first time. When we start data acquisition, it doesn't display the real signal rather a continuous straight line is appearing on strip chart. Moreover, there is no change on lissajous window. We have tried with different probes but the same issue sustains. Also, for RFT the same thing happen. One more thing, all the LEDs are working properly except VDC. Kindly guide what can be the reason/s and also suggest some solution. Waiting for your replies.
Thank you.

Once reinstall the multiview software and try again. Otherwise check the continuity of the probe using multi meter. Straight lines are coming due to the discontinuity in probe connectors.

Thanks and regards

Thank you Raja for replying.
I have already tried both of options suggested by you. Also, tried with different ET probes but the problem sustains. :(

When you open the multiview software, is it showing green signal? Or it's showing yellow? If it's not showing, try to troubleshoot the boot manager.

It is showing green light. I think it is ok with boot configuration.

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.
