Designed specifically for Rail Testing, the Railscan 125R rises to the demanding challenges set by this environment for NDT and it's operators.
Network Rail (UK) procedure and approval
Narrow Band amplifiers 2 and 5 MHz; G1 +ve trigger, G2 -ve trigger, (0.6 second delay for monitoring rail bottom depth).
Long Battery Life
Latest Li-Ion technology 10-16 hours (brightness dependant) Quick re-charge in 3-4 hours
Walking Stick Compatibility
Sperry walking stick. Others (e.g., NRS bi-directional walking stick)
Single-shot PRF for high speed multiplexing
RS232 & USB outputs: Supporting custom software systems, (e.g. Sperry palmtop with GPS)
Robust and Reliable
Sonatest's reputation for robust design and proven reliability is an important aspect of flaw detector ownership.
Down time is expensive and should be minimised to ensure maximum productivity. The Railscan is constructed to high standards using Xenoy plastics and sealed to IP67, giving excellent water resistance so it can withstand the tough environments in which operators work.
High Visibility Display
For any flaw detector the display is a crucial element. The Railscan has a colour transflective TFT display as standard, providing high visibility at any light level. The choice of colours for menus and waveform display enhance clarity, with the LCD simulation mode giving direct sunlight readability. The TFT does not suffer the typical black out problems or temperature limitations of LCD giving full weather capability. The new Full Screen mode maximises the A-scan area to improve readability further whilst testing and its fast response and peak capture functionality ensure any indicationis clearly displayed, even if it only appears for one cycle of the 1 KHz PRF.
