Portable ultrasonic flaw detector

  • 15-Sep-2009 01:33 EDT

GE Sensing & Inspection Technologies’ USM Go is a 2.2-lb portable ultrasonic flaw detector designed for ease of prolonged operation in harsh inspection environments including aerospace, oil and gas, power generation, and automotive industries. It is pressure responsive with joystick control, has an ergonomic design, and features an 800 x 480 pixel screen. The unit is dust- and water-proof to IP67 certification standards and proven to withstand shock and vibration. It can be operated with both the left and right hand using the navigation joystick and function keys. Inspection data can be downloaded via USB connectivity and the 2-GB memory card, which can be expanded by adding a 2-GB standard SD card. Reports are in jpg or BMP format, eliminating the need for special reading software.
