ISONIC 3507 is a dual channel version of the ISONIC 3505 instrument. ISONIC 3507 carries the exceptionally innovative dual channel ultrasonic card with never-saturated-receivers; each of the receivers keeps the linearity over 140 dB dynamic range digitizing the originally received signals independently on the gain and rectification settings in every firing / receiving cycle. For each channel every single A-Scan or the sequence of A-Scans forming a record stored into a file may be reproduced then off-line in the form desired by an operator (RF, half- or full wave rectified, FFT) at any gain level over the said 140 dB range. So even in case of very significant deviation of the pre-inspection gain setting from the required one the observation and evaluation of the recorded data may be performed at the right levels without secondary scanning.

ISONIC 3507 is a dual channel version of the ISONIC 3505 instrument. ISONIC 3507 carries the exceptionally innovative dual channel ultrasonic card with never-saturated-receivers; each of the receivers keeps the linearity over 140 dB dynamic range digitizing the originally received signals independently on the gain and rectification settings in every firing / receiving cycle. For each channel every single A-Scan or the sequence of A-Scans forming a record stored into a file may be reproduced then off-line in the form desired by an operator (RF, half- or full wave rectified, FFT) at any gain level over the said 140 dB range. So even in case of very significant deviation of the pre-inspection gain setting from the required one the observation and evaluation of the recorded data may be performed at the right levels without secondary scanning

The top level ultrasonic performance of ISONIC 3507 channels is achieved thanks to the said never-saturated-receiver and to the versatile firing circuit allowing forming of the Spike, Unipolar-, or Bipolar Square Wave initial pulse with wide-range-tunable duration and amplitude (up to 400 Vpp). The high stability of the square wave initial pulse amplitude within entire duration of the positive and negative half-waves, the extremely short boosted rising and falling edges and the automatic adaptive damping allow optimizing of the ultrasonic wave penetration into various materials characterized either by high or low grain size, sound attenuation, and the like and improving of the signal to noise and the resolution.

ISONIC 3507 is a direct successor of ISONIC 2007 instrument. It may be operated as single or dual channel unit. Each single channel carries the functionality as below:
superior performance A-Scan set including the spectrum analyzer for ultrasonic signals
fully featured (data capturing and enhanced postprocessing) standalone TOFD unit
CHIME system
general purpose CB-Scan machine for the performing of:
SRGW (short range guided wave) inspection and imaging also known as SRUT
surface / shear wave inspection and mapping
volume overlay incidence angle / skip corrected high resolution flaw detection B-Scan and Thickness Profile recorder
C-Scan through raster scanning with straight- and angle beam probes either mechanic-free or with use of the mechanized or automatic XY scanner (optional)
In case of dual channel operation the strip-chart forming and recording is provided; the strip chart may comprise:
TOFD (CHIME) strips
Map / PE strips (switchable on- and off-line)
a combination of 2 strips of different type, for example TOFD Map, Map PE, etc

100% raw data capturing is provided for all recorded inspections. Whilst in dual channel mode the channels may perform the firing-receiving cycles either at parallel or in sequence

Thanks to the never-saturated-receivers each channel of ISONIC 3507 is featured with the ability of individual gain control for both independent gates over the range of 140 dB separately from the rest of the A-Scan reproduced at the global instrument gain. This opens a number of new abilities such as:
implementing the pulse echo and back echo attenuation inspections simultaneously with use of the same A-Scan whilst monitoring the back echo amplitude at the clearly visible level without affecting the sensitivity of the pulse echo inspection
increasing the detectability of subsurface defects for TOFD inspection through shortening the tail of lateral wave signal dynamically
precise materials characterization through the signal spectrum analysis independent on the instrument gain setting
etc

Thanks to the Client – Server software architecture ISONIC 3507 may be controlled remotely from a regular PC running under Win’XP, 7, 8, 10 over Ethernet or Internet (Sonotron NDT’s UT over IP technology). There is no need in the special software for that purpose, the same software as in the instrument should be installed in the PC

ISONIC 3507 is featured with the hardware triggering in/out terminals and the interface echo triggering making it suitable for use in various integrated systems

The instrument is fully compatible with the Sonotron NDT's VAUT technology (Video Aided UT)

The lifetime free software upgrade policy is provided for ISONIC 3505 as for all other instruments from Sonotron NDT

ISONIC 3507 is packed into the IP 65 reinforced plastic case with no intake air or any other cooling means. The large 800X600 8.5” bright screen provides fine resolution and visibility for all types of inspection data presentation at strong ambient light along with the optimized power consumption rate for the outdoor operation

ISONIC 3507 is a dual channel version of the ISONIC 3505 instrument. ISONIC 3507 carries the exceptionally innovative dual channel ultrasonic card with never-saturated-receivers; each of the receivers keeps the linearity over 140 dB dynamic range digitizing the originally received signals independently on the gain and rectification settings in every firing / receiving cycle. For each channel every single A-Scan or the sequence of A-Scans forming a record stored into a file may be reproduced then off-line in the form desired by an operator (RF, half- or full wave rectified, FFT) at any gain level over the said 140 dB range. So even in case of very significant deviation of the pre-inspection gain setting from the required one the observation and evaluation of the recorded data may be performed at the right levels without secondary scanning.

ISONIC 3505 carries the exceptionally innovative ultrasonic card with never-saturated-receiver – for the first time ever the instrument keeps the linearity over 140 dB dynamic range digitizing the originally received signals independently on the gain and rectification settings in every firing / receiving cycle. Once the single A-Scan or the sequence of A-Scans forming a record is stored into a file it may be reproduced off-line in the form desired by an operator (RF, half- or full wave rectified, FFT) at any gain level over the 140 dB range. So even in case of very significant deviation of the pre-inspection gain setting from the required one the observation and evaluation of the recorded data may be performed at the right levels without secondary scanning

The top level ultrasonic performance of ISONIC 3505 is achieved thanks to the above noted never-saturated-receiver and to the versatile firing circuit allowing forming of either Spike, Unipolar-, or Bipolar Square Wave initial pulse with wide-range-tunable duration and amplitude (up to 400 Vpp). The high stability of the square wave initial pulse amplitude within entire duration of the positive and negative half-waves, the extremely short boosted rising and falling edges and the automatic adaptive damping allows optimizing of the ultrasonic wave penetration into various materials characterized either by high or low grain size, sound attenuation, and the like and improving of the signal to noise and the resolution.

As it’s predecessor ISONIC 2005 (also known as ISONIC 2020 in the South East Asia and ISONIC STAR in China), which became one of the most popular instruments across the world with over decade market life, ISONIC 3505 may be operated as:

superior performance A-Scan set including the spectrum analyzer for ultrasonic signals
fully featured (data capturing and enhanced postprocessing) standalone TOFD unit
CHIME system
general purpose CB-Scan machine for the performing of:
SRGW (short range guided wave) inspection and imaging also known as SRUT
surface / shear wave inspection and mapping
volume overlay incidence angle / skip corrected high resolution flaw detection B-Scan and Thickness Profile recorder
C-Scan through raster scanning with straight- and angle beam probes either mechanic-free or with use of the mechanized or automatic XY scanner (optional)

with 100% raw data storage

Thanks to the never-saturated-receiver ISONIC 3505 is featured with the ability of individual gain control for both independent gates over the range of 140 dB separately from the rest of the A-Scan reproduced at the global instrument gain. This opens a number of new abilities such as:

implementing pulse echo and back echo attenuation inspections simultaneously with use of the same A-Scan whilst monitoring the back echo amplitude at the clearly visible level without affecting the sensitivity of the pulse echo inspection
increasing the detectability of subsurface defects for TOFD inspection through shortening the tail of lateral wave signal dynamically
precise materials characterization through the signal spectrum analysis independent on the instrument gain setting
etc
ISONIC 3505 is fully controllable over Ethernet and featured with the hardware triggering in/out terminals and the interface echo triggering making it suitable for use in various integrated systems

The lifetime free software upgrade policy is provided for ISONIC 3505 as for all other instruments from Sonotron NDT

ISONIC 3505 is packed into the IP 65 reinforced plastic case with no intake air or any other cooling means. The large 800X600 8.5” bright screen provides fine resolution and visibility for all types of inspection data presentation at strong ambient light along with the optimized power consumption rate for the outdoor operation

ISONIC 3510 uniquely combines PA, single- and multi-channel conventional UT, and TOFD modalities providing 100% raw data recording and imaging. Along with the intuitive user interface, portability, lightweight, and battery operation this makes it suitable for all kinds of every-day ultrasonic inspections

PA modality is carried by the fully parallel non-multiplexed 32:32 electronics with independently adjustable emitting and receiving aperture, each may consist of 1...32 elements when operating one PA probe or 1...16 elements per probe in case of operating two PA probes simultaneously. 2 PA probes terminals allow operating of a pair of PA probes simultaneously with no need in an external splitter. 64- and 128-elements PA probes may be used with ISONIC 3510 when connected to instrument’s terminals through miniature active extenders, which expand the functionality to fully parallel 1 X 64:64, 2 X 32:32, 1 X 128:128, and 2 X 64:64 (no multiplexing involved). The groups of PA probe elements forming emitting / receiving aperture may be fully or partially matching or totally separated allowing maximal flexibility whilst managing the incidence angles, focal distances, types of radiated and received waves including directly reflected and diffracted signals either mode converted or not

Each channel is equipped with own pulser-receiver and A/D converter. Parallel firing, A/D conversion, and ”on-the-fly” digital phasing are performed for every possible composition and size of the emitting and receiving aperture so the implementing of each focal law is completed within a single pulsing/receiving cycle providing the maximal possible speed of material coverage

ISONIC 3510 allows using of various types PA probes: linear, rings, and daisy arrays (LA, RA, and DA), dual linear arrays (LA), matrix arrays (MA), dual matrix arrays (DMA), etc

In addition to PA electronics ISONIC 3510 carries 2 independent conventional channels for regular UT, TOFD, SRUT GW and other types of advanced inspection, imaging, and recording; each channel is capable for both single and dual modes of use

The top level ultrasonic performance is achieved through firing PA, TOFD, and conventional probes with bipolar square wave initial pulse with wide-range-tunable duration and amplitude (up to 300 Vpp). The high stability of the initial pulse amplitude within entire duration of the positive and negative half-waves, the extremely short boosted rising and falling edges and the automatic adaptive damping improve the signal to noise ratio and resolution allowing controlling of the analogue gain over the 0…100 dB range for each modality

ISONIC 3510 is a very powerful platform for huge number of the practical PA UT software applications available for the activation at any moment. Thanks to unique True-To-Geometry Volume Overlap Coverage and Real Time Imaging ISONIC 3510 is suitable for high performance inspection of simple and complex geometry welds (butt, longitudinal, fillet, lap, corner, elbow, etc) with scanning from one or both sides simultaneously (when applicable), bolts, bridge hanger pins, wind turbine and other shafts, annular rings, flanges, rails and railway axles and wheels, CRFP and GRFP composite panels and profiled stuff, and the like. Precise and easy reproducible automatic Equalizing (Homogenizing) of the Sensitivity within Entire Cross-Section / Volume of the Material is provided thanks to the unique TCG-independent angle gain / gain per focal law compensation solution combined with DAC / TCG image normalization. Along with 100% raw data capturing and scanning performance monitoring, on-line displaying, and recording this provides the Highest Degree of Testing Integrity

Thanks to True-To-Geometry Volume Overlap Coverage and Imaging and Equalizing (Homogenizing) of the Sensitivity within Entire Cross-Section / Volume of the Material the inspection results produced by ISONIC 3510 are quickly and easy interpretable and well acceptable by the UT Pros and non-Pros as well

ISONIC 3510 is packed into the IP 65 reinforced plastic case with no intake air or any other cooling means. The large 800X600 8.5” bright screen provides fine resolution and visibility for all types of inspection data presentation at strong ambient light along with the optimized power consumption rate for the outdoor operation
