Nova 900 Series - Precision Measuring
NOVA 900 Series - Precision Digital Ultrasonic Thickness Gauges
The Nova 900 Series Precision Ultrasonic Thickness Gauges are now available in both handheld and bench top versions, from 4 key simple to full featured. Some standard features include High Speed Pulse Rep Rate, 0.0001 Resolution to a minimum of 0.0035 (probe & application dependent) AutoSet, B-Scan and 50,000 Point Logger as well as storage of 30 custom user Setups on 930 Handheld & 950 Bench top, Delta Mode, High & Low Alarms, Thickness/velocity readout, High Speed LED Numeric Display (readable up to 10 feet away) and LCD Menu display on Bench Top, High Contrast LCD Display on Hand Held, English/Metric units, RS-232C on Hand Held as well as RS232 and USB digital I/O port on Bench Top, NiMH batteries, scope outputs, ac power module/battery charger.
The Nova 900 Series represents the latest release and a dramatic advancement in portable precision ultrasonic thickness gauges. A proprietary monolithic integrated circuit chip and a highly advanced microcomputerized design have permitted the achievement of performance levels considered only conceptual, The outgrowth of this technology has been the development of three portable and two Benchtop models in the Nova 900 Series. These ruggedized, highly stable models have been carefully designed to offer a choice of features to best suit the application level, gauging environment and user preference.
All five models provide the identical base gauging performance, with variations in options and the supporting features. The Nova 910 and Nova 950 incorporate a backlit LCD menu display AND a bright LED numeric display which improves view ability at a distance.
The Nova 910 thickness tester is a basic gauge emphasizing operational simplicity for the more straightforward, less demanding applications. Precisely measuring material wall thickness from just one side.
The Nova 950's offer a wide variety of supporting features including 50,000 point Data Logger, User setup parameters can be modified and stored, High/Low alarms, Industry First Scan Bar, Scrolling 'B' Scan and more.
AutoSet... Incorporated Into All Models
Advanced Pulser / Receiver
Featured is a highly advanced pulser receiver system which operates under automatic microprocessor control. AutoSet commands the pulser/receiver to set the proper balance between system sensitivity and bandwidth for each selected application (transducer). The receiver's design includes digitallycontrolled AGC (automatic gain control), DAC (distance amplitude correction) and polarity. A unique dual pulser circuit substantially enhances performance, The net result is remarkable resolving power for thin materials and exceptional penetrating power
Power is provided by both a rechargeable 'AA' batteries ( user replaceable via back panel) and a universal AC plug in adapter. A power divider circuit permits the AC adapter to independently power the gage, as well as simultaneously charge its battery pack. Thus, continuous operation is always assured from an AC line source, regardless of battery condition or charge level. A battery low charge level indicator is included, while a power cutoff circuit automatically protects the battery pack from unintentional over or discharge. Also to conserve battery charge level, the gage automatically turns itself off if not used after a short time.
There are a broad array of Nova AutoSet transducers available for the Nova 900 Series. Rather than offer many thickness gages dedicated to various applications, the transducer actually sets a single gage to optimize for a given application. Transducers available include contact, delay line, bubbler, immersion as well as the ability to custom configure a probe to an application and assign it an AutoSet "channel"
Just a few of the applications supported include:
