Sonatest Sitescan 500s

Sonatest Sitescan 500s Flaw Detectors have always meant highly reliable, technician focused and this range continues this tradition. Sitescan 500s offers the end user an entry level broad band flaw detector with full VGA display, sync and proportional outputs and a 50nS (Spike) 200V Pulser.

Sonatest Sitescan 500s Typical applications are Weld Fabrication, Corrosion Detection, Forgings & Castings and general UT inspection.

Features Sonatest Sitescan 500s

Reliable, Rugged & Robust

An instrument’s ability to perform in harsh environments with proven reliability is an important aspect of flaw detector ownership and this is enhanced by the Sitescan 500s’s enclosure is constructed using automotive grade impact grade impact resistant materials and offers excellent water resistance. Explosive Testing MIL810-G standards have been passed, together with environmental testing which has confirmed the instrument fully functioning at temperatures above 55°C. The Sitescan 500s has a colour transflective VGA display, providing high visibility in any lighting conditions. Maximum readability is achieved through adjustable brightness and the choice ‘of 9 colour palettes, including a black-on-white LCD emulation mode.

Advanced Defect Sizing Tools as Standard

Weld and pipe inspection are major applications for the Sitescan 500s which is equipped with the latest software tools for defect sizing. The use of integrated sizing software reduces analysis time and speeds inspection. Multiple standard sizing techniques are essential for service companies working to different customer standards, especially as service work becomes more international and operators are required to work to different codes.

UT-Lity Lite Data Management Software

Ut-Lity Lite software provides everything you need to manage your inspection data. The Standard (Lite) version is FREE with every instrument and give you the ability to view, move and manage Calibrations, A-Scans, B-Scans and Thickness Logs both on the instrument and on your PC. With UT-Lity Lite you can also create customised inspection report templates, cut-n-paste information to other applications and create printable pdf documents.

  • Load, store, manage files both on the PC and on a connected flaw detector
  • Save, analyse, colour code and export thickness logging data to spreadsheets/asset management software
  • Update the Flaw Detector and Firmware as and when updates become available on our website
