Ultrasound data collector

SDT North America has released the SDT270, which represents an evolution for PdM and reliability professionals. The first portable ultrasound instrument to include both a built-in temperature sensor and a laser tachometer also has an onboard SQL database to capture and manage survey data.

SDT270 uses True Amplitude to give ultrasound inspectors, for the first time, the ability to maintain a database of accurate sound files. Each wave file is sampled 250,000 times per second. The result is clear, accurate and comparable time signals stored in the SDT270’s massive internal memory.

An ultrasound detector that connects to the Internet offers new levels of support options. Remote access for support, training, and measurement triggering brings new possibilities to your ultrasound program. Two-channel sequential measurement means multiple sensors can connect to your SDT270 for faster collection of data. Store static data (dBµV), record dynamic sound files, measure temperature and RPM, and acceleration without exchanging sensors. The SDT270 redefines intelligent instrument design to make more efficient use of your time. 

The SDT270 platform gives customization with the opportunity to upgrade as your program grows. Choose from six base formats, then add sensors and software to build a collector unique to your needs. SDT270 is even more powerful with UAS software. UAS forms a synergistic partnership between your SDT270, your PC and your PdM team.
