New XL Go+ with XpertSuite? Increases Probability of Detection During Inspection

GE Inspection Technologies GmbH310, Hürth, Germany

BILLERICA, MASS.—January 30, 2012—With its innovative XpertSuite™ of features, the new XL Go+ portable VideoProbe from GE’s (NYSE: GE) Inspection Technologies business helps increase probability of detection (POD) to provide increased efficiency, reliability and productivity in a range of inspection tasks in confined, hard-to-reach locations.

“The XL Go+ has been developed to help ensure that the chances of missing a defect or an out-of-place artifact are greatly reduced,” said Melissa Stancato, RVI product manager at GE. “In turn, this will help to reduce the chances of catastrophic failures while reducing maintenance costs. This is especially relevant in the case of compressors or gas turbines, where undetected flaws can eventually cause shut-down, which can lead to forced outage costing millions of dollars.”

XpertSuite consists of four performance-enhancing features designed to improve visibility during inspection. The XpertVisionTM External Monitor is a battery-powered monitor that connects easily to the XL Go+ for remote observation or additional viewing by a second inspector. XpertLightTM Probe Illumination offers a 60 percent increase in light output to improve image quality and the likelihood of identifying a defect, even in larger areas. XpertBrightTM Readable LCDs on the XL Go+ and the XpertVision are designed for maximum readability in strong outdoor lighting, harsh factory lighting or snowy environments. XpertBright enables optimum viewing while enhancing image quality. XpertSteerTM Probe Articulation combines Servomotor All-Way® articulation with GE’s patented bump gesturing for precise probe navigation in small increments, permitting extremely precise steering for better defect visibility in tight applications.
