The ОКО-22М-UT ultrasonic flaw detector is a standalone electronic unit. It is intended for application in high-performance automated multi-channel NDT Systems, transportable systems (mechanized NDT systems) or for manual testing.
It is available in several flaw detector models that differ in the number of channels and in the volume of built-in functions for result processing.
As the flaw detector is designed in a form of a standalone device with the connection to the PC via the Ethernet port, several UT channels can be connected to the PC via the Switch unit. This enables creating UT multi-channel testing systems.
Technical capabilities of the flaw detector allow using it both in online and offline testing systems of stationary type.
