An adaptable device which can quickly and easily encode manual phased array inspections has been launched by Phoenix Inspection Systems.

The C-Clamp Encoder is compact and very simple to attach, requiring no tools for set-up and operation. It is robust and precise, offering high-resolution encoded scans, and is suitable for any single-axis inspection.

The two clamping arms separate by up to 55mm to fit around any of the vast range of ultrasonic transducers and phased array wedges on the market today. The arms can be quickly adjusted to the wedge width and locked and clamped into place with thumbscrews.

The waterproof wheel encoder can be fitted either behind or alongside the clamp, enabling B, C, D or S-scan phased array data to be recorded with its position. The strong clamp mechanism ensures no lateral movement during scanning while the spring loading keeps the wheel in constant contact with the surface.

Andrew Brewis of Phoenix Inspection Systems said: “The C-Clamp Encoder is a small accessory that should be in every inspector’s toolkit. It enables phased array inspections to be quickly recorded for sizing defects and is very simple to attach. It is robust incorporating our new waterproof, high-resolution encoder. It complements our existing range of scanners and tools that aid operators in the field.”
