Test Range – 0-5mm(0.25in)up to 0-10,000mm (400 in.) in steel at 5930m/s (19455f/s)
Velocity – 1000 – 10,000 m/s continuously variable.
Probe Zero – 0 to 999.999 µs.
Delay – 0-10,000m (400in) in steel at 5930m/s (19455f/s)
Gain – 0 to 110dB adjustable in 0.5, 1, 2, 6,10, 14 and 20dB steps.
Test Modes – Pulse echo and transmit/receive.
Pulser – 200V fixed. 50nS square wave. Rise/Fall times <5nS into 50R load.
Damping – 50 and 400 Ohm damping selectable.
Active Edge – Unique Active Edge Mode for improved near-surface resolution.
P.R.F – Adjustable 5Hz to 1kHz. External sync also available.
Rectification – RF, Full wave, ve half-wave and -ve half-wave.
Frequency Range – 1.0MHz to 14MHz
System Linearity – Vertical = 0.5% Full Screen Height (FSH). Horizontal -0.2% Trace Full Screen Width (FSW).
Display – Colour Transflective VGA (640 x 480) TFT. Display area: 116.16 x 87.2 mm (4.57 x 3.43 in).
A-Scan Area: 400 x 510 pixels (normal), 460 x 620 (FS).
Gate Monitor – Two independant gates for measurement and monitoring. Start and width fully adjustable over the entire range of the instrument. Levels adjustable from 0% to 100%, positive ornegative triggering on each gate with audible & visual alarms. Gate resolution is 5nS.
Zoom – Expands range and delay to cover the area set by Gate 1 start & width controls.
AGC – Automatic Gain Control automatically sets the signal in Gate 1 to a level between 10% and 90% FSH, tolerance between 5% and 20%.

Measurement Modes:
Mode 1 – Signal monitor, Gate alarms can be active but no measurements are displayed.
Mode 2 – Depth and amplitude of first signal in gate.
Mode 3 – Echo-Echo distance measurements.
Mode 4 – Trigonometric display of beam-path, surface distance (including X-offset) and depth of indication from the inspection surface together with echo amplitude. Curved surface correction can be applied for convex and concave surfaces. Half-skip can be indicated on screen.
Mode 5 – Gate to Gate distance measurement
Mode 6 – Flank to Flank
Mode 7 – Beam Angle, calculated from beampath, hole radius and hole centre depth.
