  • Wind101A – Wind Units Set-Up and Troubleshooting

    The Wind101A comes programmed with an engineering unit to provide the average wind speed using a 10 second reading rate. If a different reading interval is desired, a different engineering unit must be created to properly scale pulses to wind speed. Note: these instructions assume that the Comptus anemometer from the Wind101A kit is being used.  If it is any other sensor, the instructions ...

  • Probe Selection for Ultrasonic Testing: Best Practices

    Selecting the correct probe is the first step taken when starting an ultrasonic inspection. Probes generate and receive high-frequency sound waves that are then used to map the interior of objects. This allows nondestructive testing (NDT) technicians to gauge material thickness and identify flaws. For most NDT applications, probe criteria have been established by relevant standards, regulations, ...
