ISonic 2010 ISonic 2010 - Phased Array Ultrasonic Flaw Detector & Recorder
The Sonotron ISonic 2010 - Portable High Performance Ultrasonic Phased Array Flaw Detector & Recorder with Conventional UT & TOFD Channels
Portable Phased Array Ultrasonic Flaw Detector and Recorder  Phased Array Modality SIMPLICITY | VERSATILITY | RELIABILITY 32:32 phased array electronics organized as 1 X 32:32 or 2 X 16:16 - independently adjustable emitting and receiving aperture, parallel firing, A/D conversion, and on-the-fly real time digital phasing Phased array pulser receiver with image guided ray tracing True-to-Geometry and regular B-Scan and Sector Scan (S-Scan) accompanied with all-codes-compliant A-Scan based evaluation Built-in automatic coupling monitor and lamination checker for wedged probes Multi-group / dual side scanning and imaging with use of one probe Encoded / time-based line scanning with Top (C-Scan), Side, End Mapping and 3D Viewing Independent gain per focal law adjustment: pure angle gain compensation for S-Scan, etc. DAC, TCG Processing of diffracted and mode converted signals – defects sizing and pattern recognition Conventional UT and TOFD Modalities 1 or 2 channels Single / dual modes of pulsing/receiving Regular A-Scan Thickness B-Scan True-to-Geometry flaw detection B-Scan – straight / angle beam probes CB-Scan TOFD Strip Chart and Stripped C-Scan DAC, DGS, TCG FFT signal analysis 100% raw data capturing Powerful off-line data analysis tool-kit Intuitive User Interface Light rugged case Sealed front panel keypad and mouse 6.5” bright touch screen Ethernet and 2 X USB Ports Remote control – UT over IP Built-in encoder port ISONIC 2010 uniquely combines phased array, conventional UT, and TOFD modalities providing 100% raw data recording and imaging. Along with superior portability, lightweight, and battery operation this makes it suitable for all kinds of every-day ultrasonic inspections Phased array modality is performed by powerful 32:32 phased array electronics organized as 1 X 32:32 or 2 X 16:16 with independently adjustable emitting and receiving aperture, each may consist of 1 X 1…32 or 2 X 1…16 elements. Groups of phased array probe elements composing emitting and receiving aperture may be fully or partially matching or totally separated allowing flexible managing of incidence angles, focal distances, types of radiated and received waves including directly reflected and diffracted mode converted signals Each channel is equipped with it's own A/D converter. Parallel firing, A/D conversion, and "on-the-fly" digital phasing are provided for every possible composition and size of the emitting and receiving aperture. Thus implementation of each focal law is completed within single pulsing / receiving cycle providing maximal possible inspection speed Depending on configuration ISONIC 2010 additionally carries 1 or 2 independent channels for conventional UT and TOFD inspection and recording capable for both single and dual modes of pulsing/receiving High ultrasonic performance is achieved through firing phased array, TOFD, and conventional probes with bipolar square wave initial pulse with wide-range-tunable duration and amplitude Maximal amplitude of bipolar square wave initial pulse is 300 V pp for phased array and 400 V pp for conventional channels. High stability of the amplitude and shape of the initial pulse, boosting of all it's leading and falling edges, and electronic damping are provided by the special circuit significantly improving signal to noise ratio and resolution. Thus analogue gain for each modality is controllable over 0…100 dB range 640X480 pixels 6.5" bright touch screen provides optimal resolution / power consumption rate for the outdoor operation Technical Data
Phased Array Pulser Receiver Phased array pulser receiver is controlled through intuitive operating surface comprising user interface of conventional ultrasonic flaw detectors and ray-tracing graphics. Type of wave generated in the material is controlled through key in of corresponding ultrasonic velocity. Trace of ultrasonic beam is truly imaged upon keying in thickness, outside diameter, and other applicable data characterizing object under test - this extremely simplifies understanding, creating and implementing of focal laws and calibration of the instrument as well Signal evaluation fully compliant with conventional UT codes and procedures is fully applicable to A-Scans composed through implementation of various focal laws; DAC and TCG may be created either experimentally or theoretically through entering dB/mm (dB/inch) factor

B-Scan / S-Scan Cross-sectional insonification and imaging of the material may be provided electronically with use of linear array probes through: Linear scanning with ultrasonic beam at predetermined incidence angle through reallocating of fixed size emitting/receiving aperture within entire array and composing of B-Scan image Sectorial scanning with ultrasonic beam produced by fixed emitting/receiving aperture through steering of incidence angle in the predetermined range and composing of S-Scan image Combining linear and sectorial scanning etc.
B-Scan indication of ISONIC 2010 representing inspection of composites for laminations: 1- scanning surface; 2 - bottom surface; 3 - lamination; 4 - A-Scan corresponding to the position of cursor over image
The effects of inequality of elements of linear array, varying sound path and loss in the delay line or wedge, dependency of energy of refracted wave and effective size of emitting/receiving aperture on incidence angle should be compensated to equalize the sensitivity over insonified cross-section. The unique feature of ISONIC 2010 is the ability of managing independently adjustable focal laws within the same frame-composing sequence of pulsing/receiving shots so every focal law may me executed with individually adjusted gain, time base, and other core settings providing: Gain per Shot Correction for B-Scan Angle Gain Compensation for S-Scan True-to-Geometry imaging either B-Scan or S-Scan representing actual distribution of ultrasonic beams and true-to-location indication of defects in the cross-sectional view of the material
S-Scan produced by ISONIC 2010 for several equal reflectors in the material with use of wedged linear array probe: 1 - angle gain compensation (AGC) is inactive; 2 - AGC is active; 3 - typical AGC graph
Regular (4) and true-to-geometry (5) S-Scan produced by ISONIC 2010 for compact reflector located at 20 mm depth of 40 mm thick plate. On the regular S-Scan single compact reflector is indicated twice for half (6) and full (7) skip detection while on the true-to-geometry S-Scan single reflector is shown in the real position once for both ways of detection (8)
True To Geometry Imaging Weld inspection is typical application benefited through use of True-to-Geometry imaging: upon defining geometry and entering dimensions operator is provided with intuitive ray tracing dialogue indicating actual coverage of the weld for the desired probe position and incidence angle steering range followed by live S-Scan with true-to-location defects indication. To ensure detection of variously oriented defects several S-Scan and B-Scan insonifications may be performed simultaneously with use of the same probe providing multi-group cross-sectional viewing and recording along whole inspected length
Testing of solid and hollow shafts, axles, rods, longitudinal seams, nozzles, etc. are among other applications improved significantly thanks to the easy-to-interpret advantage of True-to-Geometry imaging vs regular S-Scan and B-Scan
True-to-Geometry S-Scan for single location (1) and complete cross sectional image of the hollow shaft with defects obtained after full circumference scanning (2) with linear array probe
True-to-Geometry S-Scan for longitudinal weld (3) and nozzle (4)
C-Scan and 3D Imaging 3D Data Presentation - Top (C-Scan), Side, and End Projection Views is performed through line scanning with linear array probe either encoded or time-based at rectangle to the elements count direction. It is applicable for all types of cross-sectional insonification
For line scanning every cross sectional view is recorded along with complete sequence of raw data A-Scans it is composed of. C- Scan image is switchable between distance (thickness or defects depth) and amplitude map
Powerful off-line data analysis tool kit includes playing back cross sectional views and A-Scans, gain manipulation in ±6dB range for all recorded A-Scans followed by corresponding image update, all-standards-compliant gate-based evaluation of echoes, geometry and amplitude filtering, image slicing and profiling, determining projection dimensions and area size of defects, 3D-viewing, etc.
Conventional UT and TOFD For single conventional channel operation ISONIC 2010 provides fully featured A-Scan inspection as well as line scanning recording and imaging of the following types: thickness B-Scan; flaw detection B-Scan for angle beam and straight beam probes; CB-Scan for guided, surface, and shear wave probes inspections; TOFD. This fully covers scope of functions implemented by very well known ISONIC 2005 (aka ISONIC STAR / ISONIC 2020) portable ultrasonic flaw detector and recorder of Sonotron NDT Comprehensive off-line analysis and data reporting tool-kit for all kinds of data captured using conventional UT and TOFD modalities is built-in. UT over IP Remote control of ISONIC 2010 is implemented through Ethernet port. The instrument is fully compatible with new UT over IP technology from Sonotron NDT allowing full control of the instrument, imaging, recording, and storage inspection data in the remote control computer.
