LTPA

Overview

The LT-PA is a compact (120mm x 280mm x 310mm), rugged, lightweight (<5 Kg), and enclosed unit (no fans). It maintains the 200V pulsers of the MP5-PA and it is interchangeable with the existing MicroPulse systems. It connects to the PC running the test application via Ethernet and takes its power over Ethernet or from a separate 48V power source. LT-PA has very low noise and the Gigabit Ethernet provides high data throughput with up to 120 MBytes/second achievable. The standard size provides 64 phased array channels all of which may be used for beam forming with 64 separate transmitters available for pitch catch / through transmission techniques or other techniques where it is required to send and receive on separate probes. Additionally, 2 conventional channels (pulse echo or pitch-catch) are available.

Features

  • Small / rugged / lightweight
  • No external fans – unique air-cradle maintains internal temperature
  • Easily scalable – up to 4 units connected using Peak NDT’s unique MPLink technology – providing up to 256 phased array channels
  • All channels available for beam forming
  • Power over Ethernet (PoE)
  • High power phased array channels – user definable pulser voltage available up to 200V
  • Inputs for 2 axes of encoders (single-ended or differential) for true pulse on position
  • Outputs digitised waveform and / or peak-detected data with up to 4 hardware gates
  • High data output – up to 120 MBytes per second

Software Platforms

The open and transparent data format makes for a totally new experience when it comes to the choice of software platforms; no longer is the user forced down the one software platform fits all, resulting in amazingly complex and cluttered applications. Supplied in the box, Peak NDT’s ArrayGen software will get you started, then the choices are nearly unlimited. From very procedure based platforms like MIPS/GUIDE to user definable interfaces like InspectionWare, LabView or TWI’s Crystal FMC platform. If a bespoke application is what’s required, then using Peak NDT’s Focal Law calculation dll with the transparent data formats and standard sockets make writing custom applications a breeze. Open data format and long-established MicroPulse command language mean that users have the option to write their own applications.
