Software Suite

The inspection suite is made up of independent software driving hardware such as X-Ray generators and detectors as well as motion controllers and securities. They can be linked together to form a user friendly intelligent coordinated NDT inspection solution. Acquisition software drives different models of flat panels, detectors or cameras and provides a much more flexible fully NDT oriented solution than software provided «in the box».  IPS is a universal Image Processing Software with options for quality assessment according to EN or ASTM, filters, recognizing most type of image formats. 

All these software are also now available for systems integrators having minimal skills in software configuration and programming but enough capacities in mechanical designs and good contact with field applications.

Automation

  • Product description
  • Key features

Automation is the top level module that will aggregate all others such as XRRC (X-Ray Remote Control), ARC (Axis Remote Control), DRC (Diaphragm Remote Control), Etc. into one window and offer transparent access to all controllers on only one screen.

Automation also includes a teaching mode which will record sequence of motions, x-ray settings, time of exposure, etc. Later the recorded sequences can be played back providing an automated inspection of components.

The optional database add-on will use a SQL database to store sequences and index the images metadata (DICONDE only). The same database can then be used from IPS to quickly retrieve images using a search engine.

  • Top level module
  • Teaching mode
  • Control all other modules such as XRRC, ARC, DRC, etc.
  • One window for all controllers
  • Database link available
  • Teaching mode allowing to record sequences to fully automate the inspection process

IPS012

  • Product description
  • Characteristics
  • Key advantages

The Image Processing System (IPS) software enable to process digital radiography to find and display the defects of a component. With the different filters and zoom capabilities, the most difficult and tiniest defect can be quickly located. IPS can be linked with the acquisition module to receive the images acquired. This can be done on the same computer or using a separate reviewing station. Integration is also accomplished with the automation module, showing the images in real time as well as querying the (optional) database. IPS has an extensible architecture, this means you can expand the features using add-on modules.

Balteau provides a number of modules and custom ones can be developed on demand. Existing add-on: SRb (Basics Spacial Resolution), SNR (Signal to Noise Ratio), DICONDE (Reader & writer), DB (Database), & more on demand.

ADR

  • Product description
  • Key features

ADR is a software module that has been created to finalize the Automation process by identifying automatically the parts that have default or not to then inform the end user which one is « accepted », « rejected », « to be verified », etc.
This will lead to a much faster flow of inspection as very strict rules will have been defined within the software, reducing mistakes and costs but increase reliability.

Depending on the part that will be inspected, a lot of different criteria can be looked for in terms of default and be recognized by the ADR module such as: Dimensions, foreign substances/objects, position/location, quantity, distance/gap, nature/density, angles, profiles/deviations, and much more.

The Acquisition module works as a standalone module or can be integrated with IPS and Automation. It can also be integrated with an external application using a simple communication protocol based on «sockets».
