All you expect from an ultrasonic flaw detector, packed in a handheld.

Introducing the new USM Go+ that takes field inspection NDT to the next level. Light, handy and controlled by an intuitive arrow-keypad, it has the latest industrial electronics under the hood and offers excellent ultrasonic performance which allows for reliable detection of defects located just below the surface of the test piece.

Best of both worlds

The USM Go+ ultrasonic flaw detector offers you the performance and features of a tabletop ultrasonic  detector in a small, ultra-portable handheld instrument weighing less than 2 pounds (907 grams) for  maximum portability in the field. Its ergonomic design, useful features and big performance are the result of carefully listening to the experience of the people in the field who, through their everyday practice, know best what it takes to do a good job. 

What a field NDT operator needs is:

• An instrument you can use with one hand 

The USM Go+ is the ideal device for portable ultrasonic testing. It comfortably fits in the palm of your hand or pocket of coveralls for ease of use and transport. It’s the perfect tool for operation in confined spaces, areas with difficult access or other difficult environments.

Actually, you operate it with one hand, thanks to the arrow-keypad, which allows for intuitive navigation and fast and precise adjustments. That comes in handy, when you need your other hand to adjust the probe or just hold on to a ladder. Are you left-handed? No problem, use the ‘flip’ function to adapt the  instrument to your hand.

• A robust, heavy duty device

Its molded rubber casing makes the USM Go+ the sturdy instrument
you need in the sometimes harsh conditions ‘in the field’. It is dust
and waterproof to IP67 and has been tested according to
military standards.

• The biggest and brightest screen in its class

The 108mm x 64,8 mm screen (zoomed mode) with best in class 800 x 480 pixel resolution offers optimum echo dynamics and separation. Moreover, it is exceptionally bright so you can easily read the image even in full sunlight. On the other hand, when working in the dark, you can reduce the brightness to reduce eye fatigue and conserve battery life. An integrated stand allows you to optimize the viewing angle, when the instrument is desk or bench mounted.

• Outstanding UT performance

Equipped with state-of-the art technology, the USM Go+ takes UT performance in handheld instruments a step further. The excellent near surface resolution enables you to detect flaws located just under the surface of the test piece with a high degree of reliability.

A wide Pulse Repetition Frequency range allows you to use the USM Go+ at low PRF to inspect forged parts without any “ghost” echoes and to inspect welds at high PRF when fast scanning speed is required.

• A tool that boosts your productivity

Ultra-portable, easy-to-handle, intuitive operation, high performance - the USM Go+ is your plug & play tool that will give your productivity a boost the moment you start using it. 

Other key features & benefit:
• A-Scan video recording up to 8 minutes allows live reporting and playback of an entire inspection sequence for review by more qualified personnel (e.g. Level III)
• Truly ambidextrous instrument with flip function of the display and functionality of the rocker switches.
• AUTOANG (Auto Angle) feature calculates the refracted angle of an angle beam wedge and utilizes it for Trigonometic flaw location projections
• A standard USB connection allows for data to be downloaded from the flaw detector for further analysis or storage.
• The instrument’s 2 GB memory can be easily exchanged by SD cards up to 16 GB.
• Reports are produced in jpeg or bmp format so there is no need for special reading software.
• Backwall Echo Attenuator (BEA) helps to find very small defects, improving detectability.
• Automatic Gate Threshold for the 2 gates ensuring accurate measurements made under the same conditions.
