UMS Test Tank Specification
Precision Acoustics Ultrasound Test Tank systems are custom built to suit the end user’s requirements and additional features can be included.
|Motorised axes||Standard systems have 3 motorised axes but we have made systems with 7 motorised axes. The axes are fitted with linear encoders to ensure repeatable positioning. Limit switches are fitted to all axes.|
|Scan step size / Resolution||Linear encoders give positional accuracy and linear repeatability +/- 0.006mm over length of travel and system resolution 0.001mm Working speed 20mm per second and fitted with user adjustable limit switch and emergency stop control.|
|System geometry||UMS can be configured either “horizontally” or as a “shoot down” system for open back transducer testing.|
|Frequency range / Maximum tank size||Frequency range: this will depend on the physical size of the test tank and acoustic lining. Please contact us for accurate information on tank size requirements for your working frequency. Standard tanks are 1m x 0.5m x 0.5m which are suitable for measurements in the range 0.5MHz – 60MHzWe have supplied tanks up to 2m x 1.5m x 1.5m which are suitable for measurements above 50kHz. Depending on the physical size of the water tank it can be bench mounted or positioned at a reasonable working height.|
The supplied software integrates the stepper motor driven positioning system, oscilloscope and PC. It can be customised for individual clients but as supplied it allows the user to conduct linear and planar scans, store the digitised waveform and computates all the relevant acoustic parameters. Report generation and scripting enables output reports to be generated for any application.
|Programming language||All software is written in LabVIEW 2016 and later. We supply an executable version and the source code to enable the end user to make further developments.|
|Automates planar scanning routines||The software integrates the positioning system, oscilloscope and PC for automated data capture and storage.|
|Data processing||The included post processing software enables the calculation of standard acoustic reporting parameters from the acquired data.|
|Customised software||We can customise the software for customer specific applications and equipment. The Software integrates with Lecroy Oscilloscopes (6000 Series) but we can change the software to suit other oscilloscopes when required.|
- Water Treatment System. Perspex test tank to suit the frequency range of the ultrasound test tank system. For very large systems we will supply a GRP tank.
- PA Membrane or Needle Hydrophones
- Hydrophone mount for hydrophones from other manufacturers.
- Alternative transducer mounts.
- Function generators etc.
