Our customer needs to perform Non Destructive Testing (NDT) to test concrete. The testing method involves using a special hammer mounted with a geophone, which serves as a transducer. They strike the concrete structure with the hammer and record the results for analysis. A definitive echo in the signal will be appear should there be a crack or a weak point in the concrete.
The customer was looking for a low-cost board that would be able to sample at 20 MHz or more, so we recommended the CompuScope 225. It is a low-cost solution with a relatively fast sampling rate of 50 MHz. Since it was a specialized application, we suggested a Software Development Kit, so that he could build his own data collection application.
We encourage you to contact us and discuss your industrial application in more detail with our engineering team. GaGe can provide tailored custom data acquisition hardware and software solutions to meet specific application requirements:
