This document specifies the functional characteristics of multi-channel ultrasonic phased array instruments used for array probes and provides methods for their measurement and verification.
This document is also applicable to ultrasonic phased array instruments in automated systems; but other tests can be needed to ensure satisfactory performance. When the phased array instrument is a part of an automated system, the acceptance criteria can be modified by agreement between the parties involved.
This document also can partly be applicable to FMC instruments and TFM instruments.
This document gives the extent of the verification and defines acceptance criteria within a frequency range of 0,5 MHz to 10 MHz.
