Frequency range 0 up to 100kHz
Cycles < 100 cycles per burst
Refresh rate 1 up to 100 per sec
Output Voltage max. ± 280V
Output modes

unipolar and bipolar

Memory 8 banks
Controls Trigger-in, Trigger-out
Data interface RS 232, serial

US-Key

US-Key - Ultrasound System in USB format

The US-Key is a new generation and one of the world's smallest single channel ultrasound devices. Its format makes it a constant companion especially for mobile and field applications, and for presenting R&D results and prototypes during road shows.

The device provides flexible, powerful pulsing and receiver specs completely powered by an USB-2.0 connection. It is a perfect tool for NDT, academic, and medical applications.

US-Box

US-Box - Ultrasound System for Industrial Application

The US-Box is the larger version of the US-Key. It is a single channel ultrasound system specifically designed for the needs of commercial NDT applications in harsh industrial environments, but can be used for scientific and medical research as well. Due to its bigger size, several modifications, like transmit voltage level or low frequency cut-off, are possible upon customer request.

Its flexible firmware can be adapted to the specific needs of your application. Customers can either use the delivered NDT software or create a tailored GUI using one of the provided software interfaces.

Specifications:
Bandwidth (-6dB) 540kHz … 18MHz
Tx Voltage -10V to -230V, 50Ω, ft 100Hz to 20kHz
Rx PreAmp

ZIn 100Ω / 1 nV/√Hz

US Mux

US-Mux - US-Key with a multiplexer 1 to 16

Combine the excellent properties of the US-Key electronics with a fast switching multiplexer and you get our US-Mux. It is an attractive solution if you need to monitor up to 16 different spots using ultrasound with only one device. Several different software interfaces are included, which enable the user to define his own acquisition and measurement GUI.

Specifications:
Channels 16, cascadable up to 128 channels
Bandwidth (-6dB) 540kHz … 18MHz (30MHz optional)
Tx Voltage -30V … -160V / 50Ω / ft 100Hz … 20kHz
