PowerBox H


PowerBox H The PowerBox H is the only hand-held, battery operated instrument capable of generating up to 1200V or 8kW of peak power at speeds of up to 300Hz. For pulse-echo operation, a built-in transmitter/receiver switch permits connecting directly to the instrument with no additional hardware. A built-in thermocouple port permits taking temperature readings to correct time-of-flight measurements, and a one-axis encoder input can be used for integration with an automated or manual scanner. A setting of 600Vpp (approx. 3kW) is also available to maximize battery life if the application does not require full power. Embedded PowerUT software permits the user to modify the triggering and receiving patterns, use advanced filters to enhance signal-to-noise and present the information on A, B, C and Line Scan formats. Screen captures, device settings, and data can be downloaded to a PC using additional software provided with the instrument. The PowerBox H can be used with any sensor from Innerspec's Standard Catalog and sensors from other manufacturers.



Typical applications include:


  • High-temperature thickness measurement.
  • Thickness scanning without couplant.
  • Austenitic weld inspection (single element).
  • Inspection under supports and on air-to-soil interfaces using guided waves.
  • Light-post inspections.
  • Surface wave inspections.
  • Measurement of Stress, Bolt-Load and Nodularity.
  • Corrosion and flow monitoring (see monitoring applications).
  • Thickness Measurement with Dry-Coupled Piezoelectric Probes.
  • Thickness Measurement with standard liquid-coupled probes (requires signal attenuator).

Power Box 1 & 2


Power Box 1 & 2 ThePowerBox 1&2 are portable instruments designed for the most energy-demanding and high-speed non-destructive testing applications. The PowerBox incorporates intelligent processors with integrated digitizers and broadband pulsers/receivers to perform a variety of flaw inspection, thickness, and material property measurements in factory or field environments. Spike and tone-burst pulses at frequencies from 50 kHz to 6MHz can be generated to excite a full range of ultrasonic wave modes, including guided waves, in pulse-echo and pitch-catch arrangements.


These one and two channel instruments can generate up to 1200Vpp or 8kW of peak power per channel at speeds of up to 2000Hz. Control is performed through an external PC over a PCMCIA connection. A built-in encoder and 12 programmable inputs/outputs facilitate integration with a scanner and other external equipment. PowerUT software is supplied for PC data logging, imaging, and analysis.


The PowerBox 1 also includes a built-in magnet pulser that provides the ability to use electromagnetic probes used for generating unique wave modes and for scanning ferromagnetic materials without adhering to the surface. TheInnerspec PowerBox 1&2can be used with any sensor from Innerspec's Standard Catalog and sensors from other manufacturers.

Power Box 8


Power Box 8 The PowerBox 8 is an eight-channel portable instrument capable of generating 2000Vpp or 20kW of peak power per channel at speeds of up to 2000Hz. The instruments includes integrated digitizers and broadband pulsers/receivers designed for multi-channel applications such as phased-array and Long Range Guided Waves in pipelines. Spike and tone-burst pulses at frequencies from 50 kHz to 6MHz can be generated to excite a full range of ultrasonic wave modes, including guided waves, in pulse-echo and pitch-catch arrangements. The instrument can operate standalone, and feature internal real-time signal processing, waveform analysis, and alarming. They can also operate in combination with any PC over an Ethernet connection. Two built-in encoder, and 12 programmable Inputs/Outputs facilitate integration with a scanner and other external equipment.


ITOP® software with phased array capabilities is supplied for PC data logging, imaging and analysis. The PowerBox 8 can be used with phased array EMAT sensors from Innerspec Technologies.

PXI Pulser/Receiver


PXI Pulser/Receiver The PXI Pulser/Receiver is a high-power ultrasonic instrument designed to be installed on a standard PXI or CompactPCI chassis. The instrument provides 8kW (1200Vpp toneburst) of power which is ideal for researchers and integrators interested in a compact, high-power ultrasonic instrument to drive EMAT and piezoelectric transducers (standard or air-coupled).The pulser can be operated directly from the PXI computer using dedicated software that permits modifying all pulsing parameters, or use the factory-provided drivers to set the equipment from a separate application. The received signal can be viewed on the same computer, an external oscilloscope, streamed to another application. Data streaming can include TOF and Peak-Amplitude for three independent gates or the complete waveform of the signal, all at full PRF rates. Driver application examples are provided in both C++ and Labview. The unit permits operation in Pitch-Catch or Pulse-Echo modes using a built-in Transmit/Receive switch.


The PXI Pulser/Receiver is the most power-dense instrument in the market and the only high-power ultrasonic tone-burst pulser that can be integrated in a conventional PXI or CompactPCI chassis.


  • Software Application based on our ITOP technology to select and manage settings (Frequency, Number of Cycles, Delays, and Other Configuration)
  • Internal or External Trigger Mode
  • External 5VDC Trigger Input with Configurable Divider (e.g. Encoder Trigger)
  • External Trigger Output for Electromagnet Pulser Control
  • Synchronized 5VDC Output
  • Drivers provided to allow parameter modification, A-Scan and C-Scan data streaming
  • User SDK with driver example code in both C++ and LabVIEW

Power Box MP


Power Box MP Magnet Pulsers permit rapid pulsing of electro-magnetic probes used for EMAT applications. These short-duration magnetic fields have some advantages over those generated with permanent magnets. Namely:



  • Permit scanning of ferrous parts without adhering to the part.
  • Increase signal-to-noise ratio in some applications.
  • Permit generation of strong tangential fields.

Innerspec offers Magnet Pulser as stand alone (PowerBox MP) and rack-mount configurations for in-line integration.
