Technology Design Releases New Software

Technology Design Ltd has released version 19.03 of the TD-Scan software that includes the second generation of its Phased Array wizard and many improvements to the Phased Array and Strip-Scan Zonal discrimination modules. The Phased Array wizard guides the user through a tri-fold process of set-up, calibration and Time Corrected Gain (TCG) adjustment. The calibration and TCG sections provide ‘per-focal-law’ data in a convenient package with auditable verification procedures to ensure that the quality of the calibrations meet with procedural requirement.

As experienced operators know, an unfortunate result of multi focal law calibration is spurious signals from calibration block geometry. These signals have long been a challenge and have forced the industry to rethink the design of the basic industry standard calibration and reference blocks. An innovative ‘lock-on’ signal tracking feature eliminates the problem of spurious signals from higher angles interfering with the echo-dynamic envelope from the target reflector and therefore improves data accuracy and ease of use.

ESBeamTool® Zonal, available online from www.eclipsescientific.com may be installed as a bolt-on application to the pre-installed ESBeamTool®, CAD and ray tracing software. Complex Zonal beam configurations required for AUT may be automatically solved at the click of a button and then seamlessly imported by the TD-Scan software ready for calibration and amplitude correction using the wizard. The Phased Array wizard is complemented by a ToFD wizard that is straight forward and culminates in automatic analysis of signal to noise ratio and then adjusts gain and averaging accordingly.
