The MicroPulse 6PA is our next generation, mains-powered phased array instrument. The MicroPulse 6 is a 128/256 phased array system, that also provides 12 separate high-performance conventional channels, delivering an extremely capable and flexible instrument. MicroPulse 6 is an enclosed unit with no external air intakes, and is capable of conventional, phased array and FMC acquisition processes. With Gigabit Ethernet the unit provides seriously fast data transfer to suit all your inspection requirements.
The MicroPulse 6 is a mains powered Phased Array instrument. The system has 256 transmitters and 256 receivers. Up to 128 receive channels will be active during any firing (a maximum aperture of 128 channels). The 256 transmitters will allow the selected aperture of up to 128 channels to be used in either pulse echo or through transmission modes. The system supports phased array and FMC modes of operation. In phased array modes, parallel firing is possible with up to three phased array sweeps and one conventional firing or four phased array sweeps. In its standard configuration the system also has twelve high performance conventional ultrasonic channels. Like the MicroPulse 5 the system is controlled by a separate computer using a Gigabit Ethernet connection. This link is currently capable of up to 115Mbytes per second transfer rates.
The system is compatible with existing MicroPulse command language and data reporting structures and thus compatible with existing software platforms, making it a seamless upgrade from the MicroPulse 5.
The open and transparent data format and long-established MicroPulse command language makes for a totally new experience, no longer is the user forced down the one software platform fits all, resulting in complex and cluttered applications. Supplied in the box, Peak NDT’s ArrayGen software will get you started, then the choices are yours. Compatible with 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.
