Conventional UT Data Acquisition System
Zetec’s Z-Scan UT is the system of choice for any UT inspection application requiring power and portability. The Z-Scan UT is a flexible, high performance UT data acquisition system. While most systems now on the market use built-in computers, the Z-Scan interfaces to a standard, customer-supplied PC. Advantages to this solution include easier upgrades and more widely available service.
The Z-Scan UT operates from any desktop or laptop PC with Pentium IV processor, at least 512 MB of memory and a 100BaseT link. For optimal performance, the PC should be configured for a specific application and take into account the data throughput and file sizes corresponding to that application. Many data processing functions are available with the Z-Scan UT: averaging, rectification, smoothing, data compression by n, and compression by peak detection. These functions work in combination and perform in real-time without any loss to the global system performance.
