Ultravision 3D Inspection Package – ZETEC

Efficient UT Inspection in a 3D Environment

Zetec’s UltraVision 3 software manages ultrasonic (UT) signal acquisition, displays real-time imaging of these signals, and provides online as well as offline data analysis. UltraVision offers many advanced features and tools that improve the efficiency of UT inspections.

The UltraVision 3 software drives all Zetec’s in-house phased array UT and conventional UT systems. In data analysis mode it supports legacy file formats (DAT, RDT, OPD and OUD) in addition to the new UVData and BeamData formats. The look-and-feel of UltraVision 3 will be very familiar for the seasoned UltraVision 1 user. The integrated 3D work environment allows you to create your actual inspection configuration in UltraVision 3, and perform ray tracing with coverage mapping to determine your detection capability and inspection coverage.

The 3D data analysis features include visualization of the inspection data in the actual component, detection of suspected indications as well as the discrimination between actual flaw indications and signals originating from component geometry and weld structure. UltraVision 3 measures length and through-wall size of flaws. Inspection parameters and results are delivered in a comprehensive report format.

All system operations have a similar interface that eliminates additional training when operators switch from one acquisition unit to another.

An ideal tool for either on-site inspections or lab work, it operates with Microsoft® Windows® XP, Windows® Vista and Windows 7. UltraVision 3 requires a powerful laptop or a high-end desktop workstations. It can handle large data files with 16–bit amplitude resolution, up to 20 GB.

PC based software – Operates efficiently on powerful laptops as well as high-end desktops, under various Windows® operating systems
