Airborne Ultrasound ULTRAPROBEŽ 9000

Digital Ultrasonic Inspection System...
The Ultimate Inspection Tool:
All the advantages of Digital with the feel of Analog

The Ultraprobe 9000 is a Digital Ultrasonic Inspection, Information Storage and Retrieval System that is so versatile, so easy (most operators are able to use the Ultraprobe 9000 within 15 minutes) and so much fun to operate, you’ll be looking for opportunities to use it every day. From the very instant you hold the Ultraprobe 9000 Digital Ultrasonic Inspection System in your hand, the feel of the well balanced pistol grip, the elegance of simplicity and the clarity of signal will convince you that this is truly a remarkable feat of engineering. This Ultraprobe is ready to unleash the potential of any inspection program.

Your first glance at the easy to read display panel shows you something special. You can see the calibrated decibel readout and a
16 segment bar graph which instantly registers sound intensity changes and simultaneously registers peak hold as
you scan.

With the Ultraprobe 9000, UE Systems engineering combines the
best of both worlds: you can scan quickly as with the analog instruments and use digital information to store and trend.

Plus UE Systems’ Spin and Click Technology makes all your adjustments fast and simple.

UE Systems’ unique Spin and Click™ Technology makes sophisticated inspection processes so simple, so quick, you’ll be amazed at how much you can accomplish with only two controls. By just "spinning" and "clicking" you can:

  • Locate and identify potential problems
  • Store data
  • Change frequency quickly
  • Change sensitivity quickly
  • Download data via RS232 output
  • Adjust basic operation modes
  • Select “snap shot” function … and more!
