Sonatest D-50 Ultrasonic Flaw Detector

The choice is yours, customize your software….

The Sonatest heritage in product design and Sitescan name has always assured the technician of robust instrument construction combined with exceptional performance. The Sitescan series carries the baton of all these desirable features, but now, thanks to innovative internal redesign, new features can be added and upgrades performed in the working environment, reducing downtime and increasing working flexibility. High levels of near surface resolution, penetrating power and excellent signal to noise ratio are key functions in the Sitescan range. Typical applications are
Weld Fabrication, Corrosion Detection, Forgings & Castings and general UT inspection.

Sizing Options with Description

Sizing OptionDescriptionStandard or Option
DACDefined by up to 20 reference points or converted from TCG curve and digitally
drawn on the screen. DAC curves meet the requirements of EN, ASME, JIS and many
other standards. Custom DAC curves can be selected. DAC dynamic range can be
extended by automatically adjusting the reference curve to match the reference
gain. Scanning Gain and T-Loss available as separate controls. Amplitude readout is
selectable between %FSH, % DAC or relative dB.
TCGTime corrected or “Swept” gain, defined by up to 10 reference points or converted
from a DAC curve. All points converted to 80% screen height.
Backwall Echo (BEA)
0-40dB attenuation applied to the latter part of the time base, to improve the detectability of defects near the back wall and the loss of BWE dOption (require TCG)
AWSBuilt-in calculation and display of factors and parameters required by AWS D1.1Option
AVG/DGSEnables the calculation of pseudo “DAC” curve and equivalent reflector size of UT
indications, based on user input of transducer parameters.
APIOn-board flaw sizing method in accordance with API 5UEOption
Interface TriggerUnlocks the interface trigger gate controls, which hold off the A-Scan acquisition and
display until an interface echo is detected within a specific range and amplitude.
Used for the elimination of water-path.
Software option
Enables complex inspection plans to be uploaded from a PC using the on board Utility software. Features include 2 dimensional thickness logging, storing A-Logs and
B-Logs with thickness values, taking multiple readings per location and note creation
for each grid location. B-Scan option available to display bar-graph views of thickness readings taken by Gate 1 against distance or time
(includes B Scan)
Split DAC & DGS/AVGAdds up to 3 zones of added gain (+12db, +24dB) to the DAC or DGS/AVG curve to
enable single-pass scanning of large sections and attenuative materials. Conforms
to EN583-2:2001.
