Power at your fingertips... Sonatest Launches new Masterscan Digital Flaw Detector Series
30 May -- For 20 years the Masterscan series of flaw detectors have set standards for high performance and reliability. The new Masterscan range, which includes the 350M and 380M, build on this strong heritage and are set to be leaders in their field for advanced NDT applications.
The Masterscan series have been developed using cutting edge technologies in response to the requirements to users and their applications, delivering high performance and advanced features. Both the 350M and 380M models have improved high resolution acquisition systems and exceptional signal to noise ratio, essential for demanding ultrasonic testing. The 380M model also has Interface Trigger, Backwall Echo Attenuator and a high PRF making it suitable for single channel systems applications and portable scanners.
High Performance with Total Control
Ease of use and functionality is a key feature for Sonatest and improvements to the keypad and user interface including fast set-up, full screen A-scan and improved menu navigation systems enhance the user's interaction with these units. Drop down menu lists make operation more intuitive and reduce the setup time.
Across the range the transflective colour display gives high visibility in direct sunlight and does not suffer the restrictive temperature range of conventional LCD screens. Robust and reliable design build continues throughout the new range.
Wayne Woodhead, Sonatest's Managing Director said " The Masterscan platform places us firmly at the top of the portable flaw detection market, and I am sure the new design features will bring real benefit to our customers with high-end and demanding applications in defect detection".
Typical applications for the Masterscan are turbine blades, large casting and forgings, composite testing, EMAT transducers, and integration to single channel systems.
