Phasor XS - Portable Phased Array UT Flaw Detector

Manufacturer: GE Inspection Technologies

The Phasor XS brings the proven advantage of Phased Array technology to a new - and accessible - level. This portable and rugged device combines the value of Phased Array with a code-compliant conventional UT flaw detector. It is simple to use, easy to learn and specially designed with practical, relevant features.

 

Improved Inspection Productivity

Weld inspection often requires two or three angle beam transducers (45, 60, and 70 degrees) to comply with industry standards. A significant amount of time is spent on locating & connecting/reconnecting transducers, calibrating, and scanning the same volume multiple times. By electronically steering the beam, the Phasor XS can inspect at angles from 0-degrees to 90-degrees eliminating the need for multiple transducers and scans.

In addition, often the optimum inspection is not at one of the fixed angles. The Phasor XS automatically identifies the optimum inspection angle and allows the operator to replay the associated A-scan.

Corrosion Detection, Imaging and Digital Measurement with Phasor CV/DM

Phasor CV/DM provides a simple and elegant method for reliable monitoring corrosion, identifying corrosion pits, displaying meaningful images, and providing digital measurements. It does this by using a specially developed phased array compression transducer, which provides 28 adjacent and discrete inspection probes to allow extensive linear coverage. This ensures that even the smallest corrosion pit is identified and evaluated.

The corrososion software specially developed for the Phasor CV/DM displays results in an understandable and useful way, both in terms of digital data and imagery. A positional encoder provides precise linear location information for each scan.

Ease of Use

The Phasor XS uses a simple menu user interface proven so successful in the USN-50, 52, 58, and 60. A single key press selects the menu or feature; a rotary knob selects the feature value. A dedicated knob sets GAIN.

Real-time Imaging

Rapid inspections require a fast screen data refresh rate to make sure the display keeps up with the inspection scan. The Phasor XS’s best-in-class 60 Hz refresh rate ensures the image reflects the scanning position.

Inspection data can be displayed as a traditional A-Scan, sector scan, or both simultaneously.

And a series of screen and menu palettes let the inspector optimize the screen display to their preference and the lighting conditions.

The unique video reverse mode aligns transducer motion with the Phasor display for fast intuitive decision-making.

 

Portability

At 3.8 kg (8 lbs.), the Phasor XS with soft shell carrying case can be easily slung over your shoulder and carried to the inspection site. Once on-site, position the Phasor XS on convenient surfaces or simply hang it from your neck for stress free inspections.

With more than 6-hour battery life, the Phasor XS can be used for continuous shift inspections.

Portable Ultrasonic Testing

 

TOPView

TOPView allows the user view the scanned area from the top. This perspective is generated using the gated region in the Sector scan or Linear B-scan. Using TOPView, users can easily and more accurately record indications. TOPView also offers these enhanced features:

  • Gate data points simultaneously buffered for Time of Flight and Amplitude from both gates for evaluation in Freeze Analysis mode.
  • Dataset file records gate points (A-scans are not part of stored data.)
  • Selectable Interface Gate Start mode for varying delay path
  • Peak A-scan display

*TOPView is only available on the Phasor XS instrument.
