This unit is only available to end users within the EU and not for resale outside of the EU

The USM Go ultrasonic portable flaw detector has been ergonomically designed to provide an instrument which is light, small and easy to use in the harshest of inspection environments. Its ergonomic features include;


Small size and weight, which allow the instrument to be easily operated in confined spaces and areas of difficult access.

Light enough to be carried throughout a whole day's shift

Battery provides up to 5,5 hours operation. Can be recharged on- or off-board.

Easy-to-Read Screen

A display screen which is the same size as those in other GE flaw detectors, even though the instrument is much smaller than other instruments in the range.

An 800x480 pixel display, which is better resolution than a standard DVD.

A screen with an optimized aspect ratio to ensure highly defined echo separation.

A screen which can be easily viewed, whether hand-held or  desk-mounted.

A screen which has been ergonomically sized to help reduce eyestrain. 

Ease of Use

Can be operated with one hand, leaving other hand free for other tasks, such as maintaining probe in optimum position or holding onto ladders.

Features incorporated pressure-sensitive, navigation joystick control derived from the range of remote visual inspection equipment offered by GE.

All controls within fingertip reach. User can dedicate four function keys according to preference.

A “Flip” function allows the instrument to be used equally well by left-handed and right-handed people.

A detachable stand allows the user to optimize the viewing angle, when the instrument is desk- or bench-mounted.The attachment point is suitable for a standard tripod thread.

Increasing Productivity

The USM Go features intuitive operation so there is virtually no time-consuming, learning curve. You are productive from the moment you pick it up! Navigation is simplified using the proven graphical user interface (GUI) and the innovative joystick, allowing one-handed operation and fast and accurate adjustment.

Other features allowing increased productivity are:

A robust moulded rubber casing to withstand the harshest environments and significantly reduce downtime.

The instrument is dust- and water-proof to IP67 and is tested to withstand shock and vibration.

A standard USB connection to allow data to be downloaded from the flaw detector for further analysis or storage.The instrument is standard delivered with a 2 GB SD memory card (multiple cards can be used).

Reports are produced in jpeg or bmp format so there is no need for special reading software.

A simple on-board data logger to collect and save thickness measurements.

State-of-the-art electronics, including digital amplifier,square wave pulser (optional) and digital filters for a widerange of application benefits.
