The Krautkramer USM Vision+ is everything you can expect from a phased array flaw detector. It combines high quality images with easy operation and can be used for a broad spectrum of applications such as weld, forgings, composites or corrosion inspection. The newest member of GE’s portable ultrasonic flaw detector portfolio builds on the excellent reputation that Krautkramer instruments have enjoyed for many decades.
You can use the USM Vision+ in phased array as well as in conventional modes. Its 16/128 configuration allows USM Vision+ to be used in a wide variety of applications while complying with global inspection codes and standards.
Up to 12 groups or apertures can be used simultaneously for coupling control supporting standard inspections, or for heavy wall applications, for example. The intuitive user interface gives you full control of your inspection with a short learning curve, and the fully digital amplification offers you the complete dynamic range for the offline DB set. You can create instant reports using the on-board jpg function either on the instrument’s hard drive or on a connected USB flash drive. For extensive and customised reporting, postprocessing and sizing, GE’s optional multi-modal Rhythm software platform acquires, reviews and archives your data using the industry standard DICONDE tagging system.
the USM Vision+ even comes with an integrated stylus to support inspections where gloves are required. Its robust, rubberised housing is sealed to an IP 54 rating, to resist dust and humidity. It has a hot swap battery to keep your inspection going despite battery changes. And at just 4,5 kg (9.9 lbs) including batteries, the USM Vision+ is truly portable. The USM Vision+ is compatible with a wide range of motion encoders and scanners, so you can choose whichever you feel is right for your inspection task.
The industry-proven user interface will need no introduction for inspectors familiar with the USM family. However, the logical and intuitive parameter set-up enables new users to get off to a quick start too. There are two trackballs for fast access and easy pointing, as well as dedicated function buttons. All of this makes on-site set up, calibration and inspection simplicity itself. The image quality on the 10.4” TFT LED screen is outstandingly crisp, and with high resolution and superior signal to noise ratio, the image truly sets new standards.
