Basic functions of the instrument

  1. Display freezing: catch waveforms and sound path data at any moment, and the gate can be moved after freezing to measure the echo parameters
  2. Alarming function: afferent echo/echo loss alarming
  3.  Automatic gain: automatically adjust the gain to the preset amplitude height
  4. Flaw positioning: real-time display sound path S, horizontal X, depth Y, and wave height H
  5. Real-time clock: automatically record and store the date and time of waveforms
  6. Wave height reading: three display modes, namely relative wave height, dB difference relative to the gate, and dB difference relative to DAC curve
  7. Wave peak memory: real time envelopes show the highest wave of the flaws and record the maximum value of the flaws, it is helpful to position the flaws precisely and scan the work piece quickly. With the help of envelope waveform, the quality of the flaws can be determined.

Gate Menu

The most outstanding feature of the digital flaw detector is the ability to display all the analogue values of echoes on the screen by digital signals. When the instrument is required to compare and compute a signal wave, “human” is needed to tell it which echo to trace. Gate is appointed for locking the echo to be measured. The instrument handles and computes the echo inside the gate as well as displays all the data of the highest echo (including data of the sound path, the horizontal distance, the vertical distance, and the height).

The instrument works in a dual-gate mode with Gate A and Gate B. The reading mode of the gate is single gate one. The user can choose Gate A as the current gate.

Press  to activate the gate menu. Press it for odd times to select Gate A, even times to select Gate B.

Measuring Point

You can use this function to set the measuring point position of the gate.

Select the Gate B menu, press  (up) or  (down) to select the measuring point submenu. Then press   (left) or   (right) to choose the values.

The peak mode refers to the highest information of the echo in the gate, and the front mode refers to the first information when the echo goes through the gate.

Probe Menu

Press   to select the probe menu.

Dual Probes

You can use this function to set the probe types.

Select the probe menu, press  (up) or  (down) to select the dual probes submenu. Then press  (left) or   (right) to adjust the values.

Probe Zero

There is a certain sound path distance between the probe chip and the coupling surface of the work piece to be detected, thus there will be a sonic time delay. The delay effect can be compensated by setting the probe zero submenu.

Select the probe menu, press  (up) or  (down) to select the probe zero submenu. Then press  (left) or  (right) to adjust the values.

Probe K Value

When the angle beam probe is used, the included angle value (β) between the sound beam in the work piece of the incidence of the sound wave and the surface normal should be set as: K value – k=tgβ.

Select the probe menu, press    (up) or  (down) to select the probe K value submenu. Then press  (left) or  (right) to select the probe K value and the probe angle. Press  (up) or  (down) to select the value option, then press  (left) or  (right) to adjust the value.

Front Distance

In the menu, you can set the front edge length value of the probe (referring the distance between the front edge of the angle beam probe to the point of incidence of the probe).

Select the probe menu, press   (up) or  (down) to select the front distance submenu. Then press   (left) or  (right) to adjust the values.

Work Piece Thickness

On the work piece thickness submenu, you can set the work piece thickness in the vertical direction of the detection plane. When using angle beam probe, the positioning of the vertical depth of the flaws need this value set. The reason is that when non-primary reflection is used in the detection, if the work piece thickness is not considered, it will result that the instrument might produce an outcome that the vertical depth value is larger than the actual thickness of the work piece when it automatically measure the vertical depth.

Select the probe menu, press  (up) or    (down) to select the work piece submenu. Then press  (left) or   (right) to adjust the value.

Curve menu

Owing to the diffusion and attenuation of the sound velocity, the echo heights of the reflectors of the same size depend on the distance between the reflector and the probe. The distance amplitude curve is made according to different reference reflectors which are the same size but different in their depths, and a curve diagram mode displays the influences and the changes. When the DAC curve is being made, the material of the reference block with artificial flaws should be same as the work piece to be tested.
