Non-destructive testing - Characterization and verification of ultrasonic phased array equipment - Part 1: Instruments
|Publication Date:||2 July 2015|

This part of ISO 18563 identifies the functional characteristics of a multichannel ultrasonic phased array instrument used for phased array probes and provides methods for their measurement and verification. This part of ISO 18563 can partly be applicable to ultrasonic phased array instruments in automated systems, but then, other tests might be needed to ensure satisfactory performance. When the phased array instrument is a part of an automated system, the acceptance criteria can be modified by agreement between the parties involved. This part of ISO 18563 gives the extent of the verification and defines acceptance criteria within a frequency range of 0,5 MHz to 10 MHz.
