Turtle Tough Ultrasound Ports

Ultrasound Ports

Keep energized electrical equipment closed during ultrasound inspections with the Turtle Tough Ultrasound port. Closed-panel inspections eliminate inherently high risk tasks, such as removing panels or opening hinged doors, making your work processes safer for personnel, plant assets and processes. Ports provide direct line of site access to ultrasonic waves that are otherwise not accessible from equipment with tight seals.

OVERVIEW

Ultrasound ports provide safe access to “inaccessible” energized equipment.

Turtle Tough Ultrasound Ports feature a conical backend to capture and focus ultrasonic waves from broad angles within the equipment. Conical front-end allows for the technician to angle data-collection cones for line-of-site aim through the port of over 45º for direct access to most components in switch gear.
