eTOFDTM revolutionizes the Time of Flight Diffraction (TOFD) technique by seamlessly combining TOFD technology with en-
hanced pulse/echo technology. eTOFDTM uses only two TOFD transducers while comparable TOFD and pulse/echo systems use
four. With one pair of TOFD transducers, the system collects TOFD data and pulse/echo data simultaneously, yielding the most
accurate single-pass scans.
eTOFDTM uses L-waves along with the standard share waves to form a wide-beam spread; with such a large ultrasound spread,
the system rarely misses a weld defect.
The eTOFDTM system combines the advantages of the two technologies while eliminating the weakness, enabling the powerful
system to:
- Determine the location of the defects: left side or right side of the weld.
- Find small cracks near the top and bottom surfaces.
- Determine planer defects or volumetric defects.
- Display TOFD B-scan images in the scan direction of the beam for more accurate location and sizing
- Detect porosity in the weld.
Each eTOFDTM system includes:
- a pair of transducers and wedges
- a single axis or dual axes inspection scanner
- a portable computer with multi-channel pulser/receiver and a high-speed converter card
- a Windows based eTOFDTM software
At each user specified inspection interval, the system performs three inspection shots:

Shot 1. Left P/E Shot 2. Left transmit and right receive Shot 3. Right P/E

While scanning, the software displays three D-scan strip charts: one for TOFD and two for pulse/echo data. From the display the
user can easily discern the location and the type of each defect.
HS212/HS226, MTSCAN series scanners, and TOFD scanners are all compatible with the eTOFDTM system.
Other accessories include a coupling kit and custom length cables. The coupling kit consists of a water compressor, tubing, a Y
connector, and a flow control valve. The 100-foot and 200-foot cables are built with differential line drivers and receivers to ensure
encoder signal strength.
