      Two gauges in one

      The FD700 series has two functions, a thickness gauge and a flaw detector.
      When the FD700 is set to thickness gauge it has the ability to measure coatings and material thickness simultaneously. When set to flaw detector the gauge has the ability to detect the size and position of flaws and to differentiate between flaw types in various materials and welded joints.

      Customisable

      Customistable tool kits and reading display

      The FD700 has a choice of display modes allowing the user to select the most
      appropriate for their needs; from A & B-Scan displays to flaw detection modes
      such as TRIG, DAC, TCG, Flank and Peak.

      The Elcometer FD700 Mini Flaw Detector is available in two models: FD700+ and FD700DL+.

      Whether you are on-site or in the laboratory these gauges are the tool you need for all your flaw detecting needs.

      The time corrected gain (TCG) feature automatically compensates for sound attenuation through a material, further increasing the performance of the gauge.

      The FD700DL+ stores up to 4GB worth of readings with A/B-scan images in alpha numeric batches with full data logging and firmware updates via USB data output to ElcoMaster® data management software.

      Features:

      • Exceptional visibility in sunlight (AMOLED)
      • colour VGA display (320x240 pixels)
      • Sizing Toolkits: DAC, AWS, TCG, DGS
      • Pulse Repetition Frequency: 8 to 2000Hz, adjustable
      • Detection: Z-Cross, Flank & Peak
      • Automatic: probe zero, probe recognition, and temperature compensation

      Detection Methods

      Zero Crossing:

      The gate detects the flank of the pulse, but the measurement is taken at the next crossing of the x axis. This is the most common type of detect in ultrasonic measurement.

      Flank:

      The gate is triggered by the flank (or side) of the pulse on the graph and the measurement taken at this exact point.

      Peak:

      The gate is triggered by the intersection with the A-scan pulse and the detection is taken from the next peak in the signal (when it stops rising and starts falling).

      TRIG:

      TRIG enabling location of flaws in both surface distance and depth. Trigonometric display of beam path, depth, surface distance, and curved surface correction. Used with angle beam transducers.

      DAC:

      Distance amplitude correction for the creation of DAC curves which are used to inform the operator of the size of any given flaw at any depth.

      AWS:

      The American Weld Standard function provides automatic defect sizing in accordance with AWS D1.1 structural welding code.

      TCG:

      Time corrected gain increases gain as distance increases, in order to achieve an over all level of sensitivity for the same flaw/reflector at different distances.
