The pulse2™ offers 12dB of extra gain and up to 4X improvement in SNR compared to a standard pulser receiver. This implies that deeper interfaces can now be penetrated by increasing the gain without increasing noise allowing the signal to stand out from the background noise. This in turn allows the user to inspect deeper interfaces than previously possible. The SNR improvement of the pulse2™ over the standard pulser/receiver is shown below in Figure 1. The x-axis is the gain (dB) and y-axis is the improvement in SNR (X) of pulse2™ vs standard pulser/receiver. The SNR improvement is best for higher gains, which is where it is most needed.
The pulse2™ is available on standard Sonix systems. It replaces the standard DPR 500 and remote pulser combination with a single, compact, water resistant pulse2™ unit, and three pulse2™ units (L, H, and U) can be connected at the same time so there is no need for manual changing of remote pulsers. The bulky 204 cable is replaed with high-flex, narrow diameter signal and trigger cales for improved reliability.The features and defects at the substrate level that were buried in the background noise with a standard pulser receiver are now being resolved/detected using a pulse2™. In addition defects that were not seen before are now clearly visible . Come visit us at our booth for more product demonstration and detaills.
