The BondaScope 300 Bond Tester - Part of the BondaScope Ultrasonic Bond Testing Range
The BondaScope Series of Ultrasonic Bond Testers defines a new standard for ease of use, performance, features and portability in a Handheld Composite Bond Tester. The BondaScope 300 Bond Tester operates in a user selectable Tone Burst or Pulsed, Pitch-Catch mode with Pulse Rates up to 300Hz. Primary applications include impact damage assessment, skin-honeycomb, skin-skin composite, AL-AL Honeycomb and more. The BondaScope 300 will replace much more expensive bond testers available for many first and front line applications.
Three simple direct access keys set the desired operational mode from full screen RF-Phase Bond Profile, RF-Amplitude Bond Profile and our exclusive Bond "Signature" mode (shown at left). Setup can be as easy as turn the instrument on, plug in the probe and press Mode 1, 2 or 3 and start inspecting. The BondaScope has been demonstrated to detect unbonds across dissimilar test panels with no change is setup. Other features include phase and/or amplitude alarm gating with a high dB audio alarm.
Display is 3.9" Diag. LCD and is FULLY SUNLIGHT readable, Quarter VGA (240x320). Size 7.25" Tall x 3.5" Wide x 1.87" Thick and 1.8lbs (with all batteries installed). The unit operates on 3 or 6 'AA' NiMH or alkaline batteries for up to 10 hours. The Aluminum enclosure is capped with a medium durometer rubber top and bottom protecting sensitive surfaces from abrasion. There is an adjustable back strap which fits around the operators hand as well.
The BondaScope 300: Is a simple to operate Ultrasonic Bond Tester incorporating a frequency adjustable Pitch-Catch mode.
The bottom cap includes an I/O connector incorporating USB output for transferring the saved data and setups to a PC via an available Data Transfer program. There are two additional caps on the bottom which enclose 2 sets of 3ea, 'AA' NiMH batteries. The unit will run on one set or both to increase running time up to 10+ hours. The unit incorporates an on-board charger. Alkaline batteries may also be used.
With the introduction of NEW, Leading Features including SplitView and SplitScan the BondaScope 300 presents a better indication and presentation of potential bond problems available today. NDT Systems, Inc. is unique in offering, for the first time in industry, the ability to scan a surface and map the profile within the scanned window for review. Other, SIGNIFICANTLY more expensive units may offer to store a TOTAL of a mere 20 waveforms; the BondaScope will can store over 250 full scan sets and over 100 Setups!
The concept of Scanning and presenting historic information on screen, in real time, allows the operator to asses the pattern over distance and/or time, thereby developing a trend pattern. This information provides the operator with a higher level threshold.
The high speed, fully sunlight readable, backlit display offers a full Quarter VGA resolution. The resolution. The resolution of the display will appear to approach analog! User interface is via simple plain text menus located at the bottom of the display. Large numeric display zone offers full 7/16" high characters.
Another industry leading feature is the ability to password protect all or any specific menu item at a supervisory or user level. With this feature a supervisor could allow the user the ability to adjust the gain AND have the ability to limit the gain adjustment within a band to within 6dB around a specific value. For instance, Gain = 44dB and the user can adjust from 39-47dB. This minimizes the possibility for a user to set the gage outside the supervisor's designed test parameters.
The BondaScope 300, Ultrasonic Bond Tester is without a doubt the low price leader in Bond Testing. Depending on the application, the BondaScope 300 can perform the inspection of competitive units costing up to 3X more.
Pitch-Catch Probe incorporating spring loaded crystal pods. Underbelly of probe has 6 holes to move probe support feet to provide for the most stable probe position. Also note the the forward guide posts are behind the probe tips allowing the operator to get closer to edges or obstructions. Probe tips are shaped in a manner as to provide a positive snap fit into the crystal pod virtually eliminating the possibility for FOD
Spring loaded with removable probe tips
