da Vinci delta - Salient Features

  • Built-in DGS/AVG curves for time proven flaw size evaluation
  • It has TCG (Time Controlled Gain) which compensates for amplitude decay with distance. A very useful feature.
  • Dynamic DAC curves which allow change of Test Range and Gain after plotting them
  • Built-in software for evaluation as per AWS standard

Linearity Deviation Vertical ±3% Horizontal: ±0.5%.
Test Modes Pulse echo and Transmit/Receive.
Transmitter Transmission pulse negative spikes. (Pulse rise time<10ns) and with Selectable high (300 Vp) or low (250 Vp) power.
Damping Damping high/low is selectable. (High= 45Ώ, Low=345Ώ).
Connectors BNC or LEMO size-1 factory optional
Freeze/ Peak Freeze A-scan Freeze, Peak freeze, echo dynamic available. In peak freeze it holds peak amplitude pattern which is useful for angle beam probing to to locate peak signal.
Monitor Dual gate with threshold adjustable in 1% of the screen height with +ve/-ve, Gate expand Interface trigger modes.
Gate Expand Expands range to width of the gate.
A-scan Memory 500 trace patterns can be stored which can be recalled, printed, or transferred to PC via USB (with NOTE/DETAIL). Unlimited No of A-scan can be directly stored in USB disk with auto file naming.
B-scan Memory 50 B-scan can be stored (with NOTE/DETAIL) which can be recalled, or transferred to PC via USB. Unlimited no of B-scan can be directly stored in USB disk with auto file naming.
Calibration Set-up 50 different calibration set-ups can be stored and recalled.
T-LOG 20000 readings can be stored in 20 different files. Five different types of file templates for file creation. Stored readings can be transferred to PC via USB.
DAC Dynamic DAC curve can be digitally plotted (smooth parabolic curve) on screen with selectable additional offset curves from 0 to 14 dB in 0.1dB selectable steps. DAC curve can be set as a flow monitor gate. DAC can be plotted using minimum 2 to maximum 10 points.
TCG After plotting DAC , TCG( Time corrected Gain) can be activated. This brings All echo signals to equal height irrespective of depth.
AWS Built-in Software for evaluation of defect in accordance with AWS standard.
DGS Defect size evaluation based on 18 predefined probe data and one custom Probe set-up per memory location. Defect size is directly displayed in ERS Value(Equivalent Reflector Size).
Digital Readout Thickness/Depth can be displayed in digital readout when using a normal probe and sound path, Surface Distance and depth of echo signals of GATEa /GATEb are directly displayed when angle probe is in use. Measurement point can be selected to be peak or flank. Echo height, ERS value, dB diff of DAC/DGS curve to signal height, Echo height respect to DAC in terms of percentage or in dB can be measured, T-minimum, Travel-distance can be measured when encoder is connected and time of travel during Freerun B-scan .
Measurement Unit Metric or British unit of measurement is selectable.
Software dVaSoft Interface software for transferring A-scan / B-scan/ T-LOG from da Vinci to PC is supplied with da Vinci delta.
Printer USB printer (PCL3 compatible) can be directly attached to da Vinci delta for Attachment printing of stored A-scan waveform with calibration data and note detail.
Display High brightness active matrix colour TFT LCD display. Display area 320×240 Pixel (117×88mm). Five different colours and Grid scheme options. colour leg facility for angle probe for easy interpretation of skip distance.
Full Screen By pressing enter key for a few seconds A-scan will be displayed in Full screen area.
Reference A-Scan Reference A-Scan pattern of standard test object can be saved and recalled in background for easy comparison during testing.
Video Output VGA video signal output for monitor/projector connection.
PRF 4Hz TO 500Hz. Selection in 10 scalable steps. PRF can go down up to 4Hz When PRF is selected to 1 and maximum achievable coupled to range when PRF is selected to 10.
Update Rate 60Hz
