We are created to do good.
The new advanced DEFECTOBOOK® DIO 1000 PA digital ultrasonic flaw detector is now augmented with phased array imaging capabilities. It is combining all features of conventional ultrasonic with power of phased array.

Using the latest generation of electronic components and microprocessors we have brought the thinnest, lightest and really portable phased array instrument, which makes your inspection easy and fast. The standard configuration is 16 parallel (in preparation 32 parallel), and with extendable module 16:64 and 16:128. The DEFECTOBOOK® DIO 1000 PA complies with all common standards as EN12668-1, ASME Code case 2541, ASTM E2491, ASTM E2700. The instrument also combines the powerful advantages of digital design with the detailed dynamic echo information, using sampling rate 200 MHz, 12-bit.
