Phasor XS Version 2.0 software contains the latest enhancements to meet ever-changing ultrasonic application needs in aerospace, oil & gas, power generation and transportation

Billerica, MA, USA – March 31, 2008 – GE Sensing & Inspection Technologies announces the Phasor XS Version 2.0 software, which contains the latest upgrades and enhancements to meet ever-changing application needs in the aerospace, oil & gas, power generation and transportation industries. Key applications include weld, composite, casting and forging inspections.

The Phasor XS’ first enhancement is a unique linear gain control to compensate for natural sensitivity variations, improved time-corrected gain (TCG) for code-compliant manual inspections (beam-by-beam, point-by-point amplitude control) and primary angle TCG curves for accurate amplitude flaw sizing.

Second, timed or encoded TOPView allows Phasor XS users to view a scanned area from the top. It generates this new perspective by using a gated region in the sector scan or linear B-scan, enabling users to record indications more easily and accurately.

Lastly, the TCG Matrix provides Phasor XS users linear gain control to compensate for the natural sensitivity variations with increasing angles. More accurate distance amplitude correction (DAC) or TCG recording adds more functionality and recording improvements.

Phasor XS Version 2.0 software is compatible with all existing Phasor XS units. No hardware changes are required for units currently in the field.

The Phasor XS offers phased array capability within a conventional, portable ultrasonic flaw detector to reduce inspection times and improve probability of detection. With its familiar operating platform and easy-to-understand, menu-driven inspection instructions, the battery-powered instrument requires minimum operator training and brings phased array technology to routine manual inspection.

Ruggedly packaged and weighing less than 4 kg, the Phasor XS is a logical progression of GE’s field-proven, flaw detection product range, offering an ideal entry-level phased array solution to manual volumetric inspections.
