RapidScan 2


Sonatest RapidScan 2                                                Back to equipment

The system includes a 128-channel multiplexing pulser/receiver module; state of-the-art data capture electronics and a standard PC laptop, housed in a low-profile rugged plastic enclosure. The instrument operates through a user-friendly Windows based interface.

Powerful gating and evaluation tools ensure that the ultrasonic signals can be analysed and interpreted to the fullest extent. RapidScan 2 operates in pulse-echo mode suitable for inspecting medium to large areas. The high resolution C-scans show time of flight and amplitude data, simultaneously displaying both A and B-scans live.

RapidScan 2 has been successfully employed for inspecting a range of materials and structures. A simple parallel may be drawn to conventional A-scan inspections; if a part can be inspected with a ¼”, single element transducer then it can often be inspected using RapidScan 2. Exceptions to this rule are compound curves, complex geometry and parts with restricted access.
