Ultrasonic Pulse Echo - Pundit PL-200PE
Ultrasonic Test Equipment - Pundit PL-200PE

The Pundit PL-200PE employs state-of-the-art pulse echo technology to extend the ultrasonic application to objects where access is restricted to a single side.

The measurement process is greatly assisted by Proceq innovations such as advanced echo tracking and automatic estimation of Pulse Velocity. The A-Scan Mode allows direct analysis of the raw signal and the real-time B-Scan Mode provides a cross-sectional view perpendicular to the scanning surface. The Area Scan enables slab thickness uniformity testing in grid patterns.

This allows the user to determine the slab thickness and to localize subsurface deformities such as voids, pipes, delaminations and honeycombing.

Control buttons and optical feedback directly on the probe increase measurement efficiency and make to instrument even more user-friendly.

Features
  • Single side determination of slab thickness
  • Detection and localization of voids, pipes, delaminations and honeycombing
  • Advanced echo tracking technology helps identifying the main echo
  • Area Scan for slab thickness uniformity testing in grid patterns
  • Measure variations in tunnel lining thicknesses according to RI-ZFP-TU
  • Control buttons and optical feedback directly on the probe increase measurement efficiency
  • Automatic estimation of the Pulse Velocity
  • Easy B-Scan measuring through center marker and rulers directly on the probe
  • Dry-contact transducer: no couplant required, suited for measuring on rough surfaces
  • Lightweight and ergonomical handling
  • Expandable with Pulse Velocity transducers
Accessories
50 kHz Pulse Echo Transducer
The Pulse Echo transducer is a shear wave transducer designed for single-handed and two-handed operation. It is particularly suited to testing where access is limited to a single side.

Standard 54kHz Transducer
A new design with improved performance to increase range and stability.

150kHz Transducers
These transducers have more resolution, but a decreased range. For use on fine grained samples.
250kHz Transducers
These transducers have more resolution, but a decreased range. For use on fine grained samples.
54kHz Exponential Transducers
For use on rough surfaces without couplant. When used in combination with Pundit Lab+ no external amplifier is required.

500kHz Transducers
For use with fine grained materials, such as rock and ceramics.

250kHz Shear Wave Transducers
For use in combination with standard P-wave transducers to measure the dynamic elastic modulus of the material under test.
Transducer Holder
Particularly useful for compound measurements such as surface velocity or crack depth.
