Innerspec PowerBox 1 and 2

The Innerspec PowerBox 1&2 are portable instruments designed for the most energy-demanding and high-speed non-destructive testing applications. The Innerspec PowerBox incorporates intelligent processors with integrated digitizers and broadband pulsers/receivers to perform a variety of flaw inspection, thickness, and material property measurements in factory or field environments. Spike and tone-burst pulses at frequencies from 50 kHz to 6MHz can be generated to excite a full range of ultrasonic wave modes, including guided waves, in pulse-echo and pitch-catch arrangements.

These one and two channel instruments can generate up to 1200Vpp or 8kW of peak power per channel at speeds of up to 2000Hz. Control is performed through an external PC over a PCMCIA connection. A built-in encoder and 12 programmable inputs/outputs facilitate integration with a scanner and other external equipment. PowerUT® software is supplied for PC data logging, imaging, and analysis. The Innerspec PowerBox 1 also includes a built-in magnet pulser that provides the ability to use electromagnetic probes used for generating unique wave modes and for scanning ferromagnetic materials without adhering to the surface. The Innerspec PowerBox 1&2can be used with any sensor from Innerspec’s Standard Catalog and sensors from other manufacturers.
