Non-destructing testing sector solutions

CASONI SRL always focuses its attention on the customer's requests, creating specific products, able to completely satisfy the current inspecting process situation. Successively to the start of the collaboration between CASONI SRL and Waygate Technologies, CASONI SRL is able to generate also standard products for design and dimension (UTS Systems). Nonetheless, they still offer a high percentage of customization thanks to the possibility to install one of the many accessories available.

Krautkrämer USIP|xs CV ESSENTIAL

The Krautkrämer USIP|xs Essential is the ultimate operating ultrasonic electronic for Testing Machines, and it offers the complete function range of a single- or multichannel ultrasonic instrument with PC support. The connection to the ultrasonic part is achieved via a high-performance Ethernet link switch where USIP|xs is to be connected, which enables a separate arrangement of ultrasonic and operation sections. The 19” rack housing styles which is used for proper housing into cabinets and is best solution for high channel configuration, making USIP|xs configuration varying from 2channels up to 96 with communication cables link.

Due to the consistent use of digital signal processing systems (DSPs and FPGAs) the essential functions of the USIP|xs are purely digital and can therefore be reproduced. Rectification, A-scan presentation, and evaluation are calculated and are consequently superior to any other system.
In the flaw-testing mode of operation there are four adjustable gates available which are independent of each other; in addition to this Gate 1 can also be used as an echo start gate in immersion testing. The readings are displayed in real-time. Numerous capabilities enable high testing speeds even during unfavorable ambient conditions.

A system for ultrasonic NDT technique using the USIP|xs may contains of 1 to 8 USIP|xs instruments. Via Ethernet connection the accumulated data is transmitted through a network switch to the host computer. The operator can access the data via a GUI on the host computer and evaluate them.

The highest degree of reliability and data accuracy is guaranteed by the extensive number of tests. The Krautkrämer USIP|xs is tested based on the following standards:
• Ultrasonic electronic calibration per EN ISO 22232-1 Group 2
• Ultrasonic standard ASTM E317 (Optional Certificate of Calibration upon request)
• Temperature IEC 68-3-1 Aa. Bb
• Climate IEC 68-2-30 Db
• Vibration IEC 68-2-6 Fc
• Shock IEC 68-2-27 Ea
• Sealing IEC 68-2-27 Ea
• Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) directive 2014/30/EU
• Low voltage directive (LVD) 2014/35/EU
