Illustrations with questions?

There are frequent questions posted that are almost impossible to answer without responders being able to properly visualize the application. It would be extremely helpful, and reduce the number of responses asking for more information, if questions like the one about a very wide beam transducer included sketches and/or photographs with inquiries. As I am typing this I see that it is possible to add a link to an attachment. This feature needs to be used much more.

Re: Illustrations with questions?

Very good point John!
Yes it is possible to show an illustration in the forum on top of your message text, however not so easy to use and you must upload the image to another location. I hope that soon we can offer a simple to use uploader here in the forum.
Until then I suggest to send me the image via email at rd@ndt.net.

Re: Illustrations with questions?
The other point is that those of us who use the mailing list don't see the pictures, so it is essential that anyone posting a comment with illustrations refer to it explicitly. so we can go online.

Otherwise we don't know it is there. as indeed I didn't realize the illustration in the post was here until I went online to reply

Re: Illustrations with questions?

And also the illustration does not appear in follow up messages like mine...

Product Spotlight

NEW! The PragmaPro Instrument Platform

The PragmaPro is based on a modular cartridge technology and supports various NDT instrument modal
...
ities such as UT, PAUT, ECT and many more. This new platform is based on a machined, powder-coated aluminum frame for shock-proofness, best sealing qualities and maximum heat dissipation. This is practical to extend the outdoor temperature range and/or to extend the power injected in the transducers. The PragmaPro is aiming at a very wide range of applications, such as weld scanning, corrosion mapping and composite testing.

ISAFE3 Intrinsically Safe Sensor System

ISAFE3 intrinsically safe sensor system of Vallen Systeme is especially targeted at the petrochemica
...
l - as well as oil and gas transportation industry. The sensor system is designed for permanent monitoring or periodic inspection tasks. Sensors are available for different AE-frequency ranges optimized for corrosion and fatigue crack detection and other applications. The ISAFE 3 sensor system consists of an AE-sensor (model ISAS3) certified according to ATEX/IEC for installation in zone 0, gas group IIC, IP68, 20 to +60 °C, and a signal isolator (model SISO3) certified for installation in zone 2. An ISAS3 sensor can be mounted in atmosphere or submerged, e.g. in water or crude oil. It is supported by mounting tools for temporary (magnets) or permanent (welded) installation. ISAFE3 supports automatic sensor coupling test and can be used with any AE signal processor supporting 28V supply at 90 mA peak, e.g. Vallen Systeme ASIP-2/A.
