Technology Advancements for Remote NDT Applications

The remote control capabilities of instruments nowadays ease the development of new NDT applications, especially in harsh environments or restricted areas where it can be difficult to bring together measurement instrument and technician.


This paper explains the challenges and benefits of using such innovations in the field of NDT measurement instruments by presenting two customer cases. The demonstration includes a case of remote control on a deported instrument over a local but relatively long distance and a case where a de-localised expert supports a technician live on site over a mobile network.
