The PCIPR300 is a pulser/receiver board for the PCI bus. The board generates an electrical pulse which is transmitted to an ultrasonic transducer. The transducer converts the electrical excitation pulse to an ultrasonic pulse which then propagates into the test material or couplant. The transducer also receives the echoes that are reflected back from the interface and converts the ultrasonic pulse back into an electrical signal which is then processed by the on-board receiver. The signal from the Signal Out connector can be displayed by an oscilloscope or digitized by an analog to digital converter board. This process is entirely adjustable by the end user—configurable properties include: pulse voltage, pulse width, damping, pulse/echo or through transmission mode, receiver gain, DC offset, low-pass filter, high-pass filter, rectification, trigger source—internal or external, digital inputs and outputs, and internal trigger rates.

Optional add-ons include an EXT TRIG connector, a trigger-sync output connector, a logarithmic amplifier, encoder counters, a higher pulse voltage, narrow and wide pulse widths, distance amplitude correction (DAC), and Windows software development kits.

When used in conjunction with our DT16B 16-channel pulser/receiver switching board, the PCIPR300 becomes a multi-channel ultrasonic inspection and system capable of up to 256 channels. Multiple PCIPR300 boards can be installed in one computer to develop a multi-channel ultrasonic system capable of firing multiple transducers and acquiring data at the same time. For your analog to digital conversion needs, please refer to our PCIUT3100 board — the 100 MHz analog to digital converter PCI board.
