NDT - Delay Lines

Hi All

I am a new user to this field and have my first big project. A related quick question: we have 8 channels which we need to mux. All carry ultrasound responses at the same time. We are looking at delay methods so to sample all of them at the same time.

Any idea on what delay lines to use. We want to use analog delay lines, and want to limit losses. We work at low frequencies (< 10 MHz). Any ideas and brands

Re: NDT - Delay Lines
Ray, it's been a long time that I used analog delay lines.
One manufacturer was Belfuse. I suggest doing a Google
search to see which ones are still out there. Another mfg
we used was Kappa.

Nowadays it is all done digitally. Check out the newer
Texas Instruments AD converters.

All the best, Joerg.

Re: NDT - Delay Lines
Ray, here is an example of one of the sources a Google
search yields:

http://www.bertech.com/Components/rcd/delaylines.htm

I suggest to stick with passive delay lines and prefer
lower impedances. That makes life easier at 10MHz. Also,
they need to be current driven for summation into a matching
output resistor, that's the usual scenario.

Resist the temptation of using silicon prop delays, it
can result in errors and phase noise.

Regards, Joerg.

s. This projector incorporates design and safety features that make it flexible, compact and lightweight. The Projector is lighter than most of its competitors. It incorporates an improved source channel, based on a new helicoidal design, which makes maintenance easier. The helicoidal design also allows smoother movement of the source assembly inside the device, making it easier for the operator and improving safety. The Projector also has a unique safety feature not found in competitive products. The source assembly locking mechanism is triggered by the source holder capsule at the front of the source assembly, thereby always assuring the operator that the source has returned to the safe position. The Exertus Dual 120 is ISO3999:2004 compliant.
