Sonotron NDT introduces the upgraded version of ISONIC PA AUT platform

Sonotron NDT70, Rehovot, Israel

Since 2007 ISONIC PA AUT - the super powerful all-weather-operation platform is used widely in the world as a core component of the integrated Automatic Ultrasonic Inspection (AUT) systems combining Phased Array (PA), conventional, and TOFD modalities.


Among the typical applications resolved by ISONIC PA AUT based automatic inspection systems are:

  • AUT of girth welds according to ASTM-1961
  • AUT of heavy thickness welds in the pressure vessels, reactors, etc according to radiography replacement codes
  • AUT of the railway axles and wheels
  • Immersion Ultrasonic Testing (IUT) of various materials and parts
  • IUT validation of the results obtained by various AUT machines
In March 2018 it was launched the next generation ISONIC PA AUT platform featured with:
  • Fully parallel 128:128 (2 X 64:64 / 4 X 32:32) PA and 16 independent conventional / TOFD channels carried by portable light weight unit controllable over Ethernet or directly using the standard PC keyboard and mouse
  • Expandable to 256:256 (2 X 128:128 / 4 X 64:64) PA functionality
  • Operating up to 4 PA probes and 16 conventional probes / pairs of probes simultaneously
  • Up to 4096 PA and 512 conventional / TOFD channels functionality thanks to multiple units operation (up to 32) controlled from one computer
  • Parallel A/D conversion and on-the-fly digital phasing and superimposing of PA elements signals, no multiplexing involved
  • Free settling of emitting and receiving aperture
  • Hardware / software synchronization
  • 3 motor powering and control terminals
  • 3 encoder terminals
  • Built-in UPS (uninterruptible power supply)
  • Emergency stop button
  • Rugged IP 67-sealed case mountable on scanner
  • All-Weather-Operation: -50°C ... +60°C
  • No intake air
  • No water or other type of cooling required
  • 9 kg weight
In addition to numerous AUT applications ISONIC PA AUT platform may be used now as very powerful stand-alone multi-purpose Desktop UT Workstation thanks to the new powerful on-board W7PRO computer with Dual Core Intel Atom N2600 1.6 GHz CPU, 2 GB RAM, and 64 GB SSD drive and full compatibility with all PA inspection SW applications implemented by Sonotron NDT portable PA flaw detectors ISONIC 3510, ISONIC 2010, and ISONIC 2009 UPA Scope.
