A1560 Sonic-AIR

Universal OEM Ultrasonic Pulser-Receiver Electronic Frontend / Flaw Detector with Wireless Data Interface for Air-Coupled Ultrasonics

A high-end data acquisition unit designed for system integration in laboratory and industrial measurement and testing applications. The pulser and receiver of A1560 are perfectly suitable for a wide range of air-coupled piezo-electric transducers. The instrument possesses an integrated accumulator and wireless data transfer function.

With the well-documented SDK the user is enabled to develop his own software application for particular inspection tasks.
