07.272015New standard for phased array equipment: M2M is ready!Category "Miscellaneous" | No comment

M2M devices

The ISO 18563-1:2015 is a new standard for the characterization and checking of ultrasonic phased-array equipment. It took effect in June 2015. The calibration of new devices and annual calibrations from M2M are now conducted according to this new standard.

M2M also applied, on demand, the AITM6-0016 Issue 5 method 1 in P.E. standard dedicated to the aeronautic industry, for which M2M measures the reverberation and the temporal resolution.

We would like to take this opportunity to remind you that acquisitions from M2M devices can be opened and analyzed in CIVA 2015a.

For more information, do not hesitate to consult the M2M website.

Talking about NDT, we noticed that some of the techniques we use are also applied in other unexpected areas.
One of them is for fishing!

Indeed, a tool exists: the Fishfinder. This sonar imaging system uses ultrasonic transducers to help fishermen to detect in real-time the fish beneath or to the side of your boat. Though the frequencies of the transducers are lower, it works like a giant pulse echo immersion system, only instead of trying to detect flaws, you are trying to detect fish! The Fishfinder will also provide you with the depth of water beneath your boat so you can steer towards deeper water if the water starts to get to shallow. Often the sonar technology is combined with GPS technology so that a map is provided of where you are and where you are going, including side streams, islands, etc. By combining sonar fish finding with GPS technology, it is possible to save the location of your favorite fishing holes and then easily navigate back to them later.
