150S Full Featured Broadband Flaw Detector

Based on the 123W the 150S has the same broadband amplifier enhanced with all the software features required to improve operator efficiency and accuracy. These includes standard sizing tools, advanced measurement
modes, full screen waveform display, thickness reading memory and an automatic calibration feature.

Advanced Defect Sizing Tools as Standard

Weld and pipe inspection are major applications for the Sitescan series and we have therefore equipped them with the latest software tools for defect sizing. The 123W has DAC sizing techniques.

The use of integrated sizing software reduces analysis time and hence speeds inspection. Multiple standard sizing techniques are essential for service companies working to different customer standards, especially as service
 work becomes more international and operators are required to work to different codes.

High Visibility Display

For any flaw detector the display is a crucial element. The Sitescan 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
maximizes the A-scan area to improve readability further whilst testing and its fast response and peak capture functionality ensure any indication is clearly displayed, even if it only appears for one cycle of the PRF.

High Performance with Total Control

The Sitescan delivers high performance and advanced features, yet our engineer's experience in user interface design has ensured it is easy and quick to use. The acknowledged ease of use of previous generation SiteScan
has been enhanced with the menu navigation key, providing easy access to functions. The menu structure has been designed to guide the user through their task with operation quickly becoming second nature.

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 minimized to ensure maximum productivity. The Sitescan series 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. The Sitescan comes with 2 years warranty,
extendable to 5 years with Sonacover, supported by a worldwide service network.
