|ICS Code (Non-destructive testing):||19.100|
This document covers linear phased array probes used for ultrasonic non-destructive testing in contact technique (with or without a wedge) or in immersion technique, with centre frequencies in the range 0,5 MHz - 10 MHz. This document specifies the characterisation tests that have to be done at the end of the fabrication of a phased array probe. It defines both methodology and acceptance criteria. This document does not describe methods and acceptance criteria to characterise the performance of an ultrasonic phased array instrument or the performance of a combined system. These are described in prEN ISO 18563 1 and in prEN ISO 18563 3.
