Hi-resolution multi-color TFT LCD MFD620C Digital Detectors Portable Ultrasonic Flaw Detection
The MFD620C is an advanced digital ultrasonic flaw detector featuring a multi-color TFT LCD and a host of new features to meet challenging inspection requirements. It combines powerful flaw detection and measurement capabilities, extensive data storage, and the ability to transfer detailed inspection data to the PC via its high-speed USB port.
The instrument incorporates many advanced signal processing features including a 15MHz RF bandwidth to permit testing of thin materials, narrowband filters to improve signal to noise in high gain applications, a spike pulser for applications requiring higher frequencies, and a tunable square wave pulser to optimize penetration on thick or highly attenuating materials.
The instrument can be widely used in locating and sizing hidden cracks, voids, disbands, and similar discontinuities in welds, forgings, billets, axles, shafts, tanks and pressure vessels, turbines, and structural components.
1.1 Features of the Instrument
The instrument extends the performance and range of applications that are capable of being satisfied by a portable instrument. The quality, portability, durability, and dependability that you have come to expect from the popular MFD Series of instruments remain.
Hi-resolution multi-color TFT LCD with 4 user-selectable brightness control provides high contrast viewing of the waveform from bright, direct sunlight to complete darkness.
The hi-resolution multi-color TFT LCD display with fast 60 Hz update gives an ?analog look? to the waveform providing detailed information that is critical in many applications including nuclear power plant inspections.

Real Time Clock
The instrument clock keeps running tracking the time.
High speed USB2.0 port. Two USB modes can be selected: U-DISK and U-BRIDGE. In U-DISK mode, the instrument acts as a USB flash disk when connected to PC. Configuration files, saved pictures and recorded movies can be copied to PC when possible. In U-BRIDGE mode, the instrument exchanges data with DataPro Software. The optional DataPro software helps manage and format stored inspection data for high-speed transfer to the PC. Data can be printed or easily copied and pasted into word processing files and spreadsheets for further reporting needs. New features include live screen capture mode and database tracking.
