Multi-Channel Pulsing Receiving ISONIC 2008 comprises 8 identical UDS 3-6 pulsing-receiving channels. Most of parameters such as gain, filter settings, pulse duration, display mode, delay, range, ultrasound velocity, etc. are individually calibrated per channel. Just firing level (the amplitude of initial pulse) and PRF (pulse repletion frequency) are common for all channels. Every channel may drive either single or dual element probe or probe pair through 2 probe terminals Every channel has its own signal digitizer (A/D Converter)
Highest scanning speed may be achieved through simultaneous (parallel) pulsing, receiving, signal digitizing, and recording by up to 8 channels. Measures avoiding cross talking to be taken while placing simultaneously fired probes on the object under test – the probes must be well separated Most compact probes placement on the object under test with complete avoiding of cross talking is provided through pulsing, receiving, signal digitizing, and recording channels separately in time in a sequence loop (sequentially). Sequential pulsing- receiving also saves battery life Various colour combinations may be used for each channel A-Scan. This provides easy distinguishing between channels for multiple A-Scan observations Two types of calibration files created by ISONIC 2008 may contain settings either for single channel or for all 8 channels simultaneously
