Pundit Live Array Pro
Pundit Live Array Pro – the first pulse echo array system incorporating artificial intelligence.
Ultrasonic Pulse Echo testing is ideal
for thickness measurements of concrete elements, the localization of
defects and for detection of objects in conventional or steel fibre
The Live Array Pro improves upon
existing instruments by offering an expandable array with unique AI
features, market leading ease of use and imaging all right in the Pundit
Live iOS app. With the Live Array Pro the user has access to real time
tomographic imaging, the fastest data collection of any array, with
smart AI functions to recognise and assist user interpretation.
Pundit Live Array Pro is the most advanced ultrasonic pulse echo (UPE)
tomographic array available. Sonic tests are most sensitive to air and
voiding within concrete and array type sensors are able to provide an
accurate representation of the internal structure of the concrete.
UPE Tomography is the ideal test for
applications where the user is looking to determine an unknown
measurement of the structure such as slab depth, the distance from the
surface to a void former or other internal feature. Penetration when
using the expanded 16 channel double array can reach as much as 1 m
Due to sonic testing’s sensitivity to
air it also suitable for location of defects such as delaminations
within a concrete structure, poor consolidation and honey combing.
Accurate stitching thanks to latest A.I. supported pattern recognition technologies
the Proceq Live tape measure to the object you need to inspect. Scan
wherever you want along the tape and get a perfectly stitched scan! Even
if you realize you didn’t scan a spot, (shown as blank in the stitched
scan) just go back and scan at that location and it will be placed
correctly into the stitched scan.
The Proceq smart positioning system uses
a sensitive, fast CMOS imaging sensor and pattern recognition
technologies to detect the position in real-time.
Digital reporting, data sharing and
back-up are possible directly from the Pundit Live app on iOS. The
unique Logbook feature records the key parameters associated with each
and every test including settings, time stamps, photos, site notes and
geolocation. Reports can be sent directly from the iPad on-site or from
the office and all measurements are accessible through Proceq’s
web platform all over the world.
Intelligent back wall detection and smart tagging
Pundit Live Array Pro can automatically
detect the back wall using smart imaging algorithms, facilitating the
interpretation of scans. In addition, the user can place object tags for
defects and rebars to facilitate the communication of scan results.
High-resolution multichannel pulse echo technology
the 8 channel Pundit Live Array Pro measurement head, one channel
transmits the ultrasonic signal and the echoes are received by the other
seven channels. Each channel transmits in turn. A complete measurement
consists of 28 A-scans.
These are used to compute and display a
B-scan in real-time using the Synthetic Aperture Focusing Technique
(SAFT). Coupling two transducers results in a 16 channel aperture
processing a total of 240 A-scans per measurement cycle.
The Pundit Live Array’s iOS App allows immediate imaging of UPE data.
This image can be shown in a conventional B Scan or C Scan format, or
processed into a full 3D isosurface representation onsite. Using Proceq
