Performing an Ultrasound Route Using Sonus XT and E Sentry Connect
This short video illustrates how to perform an actual ultrasound inspection route using the Sonus XT handheld ultrasound detector and the E Sentry Connect Tagging System. The E Sentry Connect tagging system uses near field communication and its flexibility enables data collection and monitoring of condition based inspection data from infrared, vibration, visual and ultrasound inspections over time. One tag can store all types of inspection data for that asset.
The Sonus XT ultrasound detector allows the inspector to listen to any faults that may exist. The information from the inspection is then recorded to the E Sentry Connect tag for each asset. Once the inspection route is completed, the ultrasound data can be analyzed using the Sonus Vue Pro software to review any anomaly that may have been detected. Data can be viewed in the frequency domain, time domain or even as a 3D spectrogram and can compare it to known examples of arcing, tracking or corona to determine what type of problem may exist.
Finally, using the E Sentry Cloud, the inspection details of the route can be reviewed and compared to historical data. Color Coding is available to denote an asset in an alarm condition. E Sentry Connect provides management of users, sets up and schedules inspection routes, stores data and alarms if needed and allows custom reports to be generated.
Condition based inspection devices from IRISS provide flexibility and efficiency because data is easily collected, stored and maintained for each asset.
