Since July 2017 all ISONIC series portable PA ultrasonic flaw detectors (ISONIC 3510, ISONIC 2010, ISONIC 2009) from Sonotron NDT are featured with the FMC/TFM protocols of data acquisition, processing and imaging. Thanks to the storing of all primary A-Scans from each element of the receiving aperture the True-To-Shape equalized cross-sectional sensitivity (EquPAS) S-Scan / B-Scan and TFM images may be formed out of the same scanning data for the various inspections including the complex geometry welds, such as Long Seams, Lap-, Fillet-, TKY-, Nozzle-, Corner-, and the like as it is illustrated by the video below.

The availability of both complimentary approaches such as True-To-Shape equalized cross-sectional sensitivity (EquPAS) S-Scan / B-Scan and FMC/TFM out of the same scanning improves the speed and informativeness of the inspection and defects evaluation.
