|The new digital ultrasonic testing device ECHOGRAPH 1095 now features time corrected gain (TCG) and back wall echo attenuation (BEA). The time corrected gain raises the gain with the ultrasonic sound path. Back wall echo attenuation uses a separate gain for measurements within a third monitor, thus making it possible to display the full back wall echo in an A-scan and thus take it into account for inspections even at high gain.
The extended memory functions can be flexibly used for corrosion testing (matrix memory), measurement series and individual measurements. All kinds of data, e.g., screenshots in BMP format or measurement series in CSV format, are stored on an 8 GB SD memory card for convenient data export. Connected to a PC via USB cable the ECHOGRAPH 1095 acts as an external drive. All pictures and data files can easily be opened within standard office software or within the KARL DEUTSCH software “eCom 95 PRO” on the desktop.
To facilitate testing under difficult conditions, all 3 monitors can still be moved while the rest of the screen is frozen. Therefore data analysis and recording have the flexibility to be adjusted to the requirements after the actual measurement. This even works with amplitude evaluation methods, such as DAC, DGS, AWS and JIS. For most convenient handling and readability the new testing device features a large 7”-TFT color display with an 800 x 480 pixel resolution.
A further innovation is the continuously adjustable 320 V square wave pulser. The pulse width is automatically adjusted to the probe frequency when the probe parameters are loaded.
