A Problem in "KB's USM 3S"

Back Ground.
~~~~~~~~

In the High Voltage/Tension Card Sp 30085 - 3.220
a transformer is used to creates the high voltage for CRT of Upto 13 kV (Tr.1 30091 - 5.950).

From our experience from 9 out of 10 failures in that High Voltage/Tension Card in USM 3S, it is the transformer that fails.

Suggestion Needed:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am sure that so many of this reputed forum are still using KB's USM 3S's for Ultrasonic NDE, and there will definitely be someone, who came across the same problem, i.e. the failure of the transformer (Tr.1 30091 - 5.950) on the High Voltage/Tension Card.

I hereby, request the representatives in this forum for a solution (if there is any) of the above mentioned problem.

May be re-designing of the Transformer,
re-designing of the High Power/Tension Card,

Or may be a supplier or a instrumentation company, still repairing those boards.

SONOAIR - air-coupled Phased Array Ultrasonic Inspection System

For highly attenuating materials, the performance of the system is critical. The ultrasonic sensors,

the scanning area and the system settings should be flexibly adapted to the test task and the material. These high expectations are met with the new and modular testing system SONOAIR. With the world’s first air-coupled phased-array UT inspection system SONOAIR we developed a technology that works with up to 4 transmitter and receiver channels with freely configurable square wave burst transmitters as wells as low noise receiving amplifiers.
