Known for Ultraprobe® ultrasonic detection instruments, UE Systems are specialists in the field of, and manufacturers of, airborne/structure borne ultrasonic instruments.

Since 1973, UE systems have developed the most accurate ultrasound instrumentation used to detect leaks, electrical inspections as well as mechanical analysis. 

About UE Systems

Ultraprobe® 2000

Fast, accurate, and designed for ease of use, it often takes no more than 15 minutes to become competent in ultrasonic testing using the Ultraprobe® 2000.

The Ultraprobe® 2000 can heterodyne ultrasound into audible range providing accurate sound reproduction. Sensitive only to ultrasonic frequencies, the Ultraprobe 2000 will not respond to the low frequency noises often associated with most plant equipment. Therefore, the "gun" can be effectively utilized in extremely loud environments.

The Ultraprobe® 2000 can help:

  • Reduce unplanned downtime

  • Shorten planned outage time

  • Diagnose equipment problems quickly

  • One person quickly test equipment in an entire section

  • Create more efficient scheduling of routine Preventative Maintenance procedures


Key features

  • 3 modes for reporting data: auditory channels, bi-modal analog meter, interface with other devices

  • FREQUENCY TUNING enables a user to tune into problem "sounds" while minimizing background interference.

  • METER MODE selection adjusts the meter response from a real time response to an averaging response. This feature allows accurate adjustments for leak detection and for mechanical analysis.

  • can be utilized effectively in extremely loud environments

  • Frequency tuning adjustment dial: Scale 20-100 kHz with "fixed band" positions for ultra-narrow frequency response

  • Training CD produced with footage of actual plant environments

Features

  • ​​3 modes for reporting data:

    • auditory channels (via a headset that has been specifically selected for heavy duty industrial use),

    • uniquely designed bi-modal analog meter

    • through the ability to interface with vibration analyzers, & sound recording devices via the heterodyned output.

  • Bi-Modal Meter Switch for logarithmic and linear meter scale adjustments

  • Optional auxiliary mode selection for chart recorder output: 0 – 50 mV, Precision 10 turn adjustment dial with numerically calibrated sensitivity increments for finite gain adjustment

  • Sensitivity Control, A 10 turn numerically calibrated adjustable potentiometer. Spring loaded trigger switch

Technical specifications

CONSTRUCTION:

Hand held metered pistol type made with anodized aluminum and ABS plastic


FREQUENCY RESPONSE:

Detect ultrasonic frequencies between 20 kHz and 100kHz, continuously variable. Frequencies are converted to 100 Hz to 3 kHz audio.


PROBES:

Scanning Module: patented TRISONIC plug-in type consisting of a phased array of multiple transducers for airborne ultrasound. This probe is shielded against RF interface.

Rubber Focusing Probe (flexible) slips over scanning module to concentrate conical directivity and to shield reception of stray ultrasound. Also fits over Stethoscope Module to shield against high ambient ultrasound while unit is at maximum sensitivity.

Stethoscope Module: plug-in type, insulated probe with RF shielding; 4 1/2″ (11.4 cm) long steel probe tip, conically shaped for uniform surface contact. Probe tip is interchangeable. Stethoscope Extension Kit: 3 piece, segmented metal rods to increase stethoscope contact range 20″ (50.8.cm) and 31″ (76.2 cm)./p>
