Ultrasonics Testing System Has USB Interface

The USLT 2000 ultrasonic testing system from GE Sensing And Inspection Technologies is now supplied with a USB interface. This replaces the former PCMCIA card interface and will ensure universal connectivity with standard PCs. The modification will allow users, especially those carrying out spot-weld checks in the automotive sector, to achieve easier connectivity between USLT 2000 ultrasonic equipment and standard PC notebooks.

The USLT 2000 is an ultrasonic dialogue instrument that has been specially developed for testing the variety of welds, bondings and solders used in the automotive industry. It features purpose-designed software to provide universal evaluation options for detected indications to meet both national and international test specifications. It also offers high-resolution display of results for rapid sentencing.

Inspectors in the automotive sector are increasingly using notebooks without a PCMCIA interface, which has necessitated the design of the USB interface solution. The USLT USB retains all the features and benefits of the USLT 2000. It operates in a Windows environment, which means that test reports can be generated in Excel and all settings and findings can be stored in an Access database. Operation is via a keyboard or mouse, or via a remote control with eight assignable instrument functions.
