Laser Ultrasonic Kit for Starters (LUKS-1550-TWM)

The IOS LUKS-1550-TWM Laser Ultrasonic Kit for Starters includes all the components necessary for establishing laser ultrasonic inspection capability in a laboratory. It includes the innovative AIR-1550-TWM laser ultrasonic receiver, with its ideal combination of sensitivity and response time, operating at the eyesafe wavelength of 1550 nm. The fiber-coupled measurement head is small and reconfigurable. With added integration, the LUKS-1550-TWM can perform factory process monitoring and inspection, and in-service inspection in the field.
