GE Sensing & Inspection Technologies Introduces Rhythm UTGE Inspection Technologies GmbH310, Hürth, Germany
Rhythm UT enables Phasor XS inspectors to analyze, share and archive ultrasound inspection images in one easy to use software platform
Billerica, MA, USA June 16, 2008 GE Sensing & Inspection Technologies introduces Rhythm UT, the first element within the Rhythm software suite dedicated specifically for ultrasound testing. With the use of Rhythm UT, users are now able to generate relevant, easy to read reports in real time directly from data collected in the field with the Phasor XS.
With Rhythm UT, users will notice more accurate analysis and increased productivity. Analysis will no longer need to be done from the field where environmental factors can lead to data inaccuracies. Rhythm UT data and images can be sent immediately for analysis on a larger PC where features such as panning and zooming can be used for a more complete view.
Rhythm UTs additional tools like zoom, rulers, annotation and export functions allow users to improve analysis and reporting. The software generates DICONDE files from the data sets stored on Phasor XS. Users have the ability to store data in a non-proprietary format, pairing inspection information with images that can be easily shared and retrieved.
Rhythm UTs interface is clear and user friendly, making it easy to use. The addition of UT to the Rhythm suite brings multi-modality capabilities to users in one easy to use platform.
The Rhythm software suite is being developed on an on-going basis. The software suite consists of Rhythm Acquire, Rhythm Reporting, Rhythm Review and Rhythm Archive. The Rhythm suite for radiography and remote visual inspection is already proven in the field. The same philosophy is being extended to other modalities in addition to ultrasound, so that eventually, it will be possible to compare inspection results from RVI, X-ray, ultrasonic and eddy current techniques at the same work station, in a process of data fusion.
