Flaw Detector


M2M Mantis

 

M2M MantisTM is a robust and lightweight flaw detector offering UT, PAUT, TOFD, and TFM through the streamlined user interface called CaptureTM. It features a resistive touch screen technology (glove compatible, not dust/water sensitive) and a high storage capacity.

Ideal for applications such as high-speed corrosion mapping, butt weld and long seam weld inspections. It is compatible with existing phased array probes (linear, dual linear, and dual matrix array) and existing scanners (up to three encoder axis)

The M2M Mantis is ideal for applications such as high-speed corrosion mapping, butt weld and long seam weld inspections. Eddyfi Technologies Inc.


Real-Time Measurement


Internet Enabled Universal Input Logger

 

The WebDAQ 904 is a stand-alone, universal data logger designed for remote monitoring and control of multiple signal types.

It features four, simultaneous universal analog inputs, capable of measuring voltage (up to ±60 V), thermocouples, RTDs, current, resistance, strain gages and other bridge-based sensors. Memory options include internal 3GB, optional SD card, and USB slots.

Users can log and view data in real time from anywhere on an internet-enabled device. Measurement Computing Corp.


Waterproof HDMI Cable


MilesTek HDMI cable

 

MilesTek presents a new series of waterproof HDMI cable assemblies for use in industrial computing, factory automation, outdoor digital signage, medical and harsh environment A/V applications.

They include a waterproof coupler and gold-plated contacts that stand up to repeated mating cycles at operating temperatures of -24° to +85° C. Lanyard-attached dust caps on each connector is designed to keep debris out of the connector while not in use.

An IP67-rated HDMI panel-mount coupler can be used with these cable assemblies. MilesTek.
