TacTic™ INSTRUMENT INTERFACES

Model 28B Alarm and Motor Control Center

The Model 28B Alarm and Motor Control Center, mounted on the front of almost all TacTic Testers, includes variable speed drive motor control with the important “STOP ON DEFECT” and variable alarm horn functions. It also provides scan direction outputs to prevent misoperation of a strip-chart recorder or a TacTic Model 1088 Indicator/Controller during drive direction reversals. See Bulletin 760B.

Model 14D-Coded Alarm

TacTic developed special interface devices such as the Model 14D–Coded Alarm to meet unique system needs. This multi-channel audible alarm has distinct channel tone patterns that help the operator identify which channel has produced an indication.

Model 1088A Test Parameter Indicator & Marker/Sorter Controller

The Model 1088A Test Parameter Indicator & Marker/Sorter Controller provides all Model 108 functions plus computer-controlled delayed alarms to operate “downstream” defect marking or sorting devices. Adjustable “dead zones” are included to prevent false operation from signals due to piece ends passing the transducers.

The TacTic Model 1088A Test Parameter Indicator calculates and displays feed rate and correct settings for conveyor parameters such as drive, idler, and support pedestal wheel angles. It is used when entering the material diameter and desired scan index, or “pitch,” on the keypad for a menu-selected device. Infrared sensors measure throughput rate and enable digital display and limit alarms for linear and surface velocities and scan pitch.

ULTRASONIC TECHNOLOGY IN NDT

MAC now has cost effective TacTic™ “spin the tube” immersion tank ultrasonic systems which can be used to test tube up to 8” and bar up to 6” diameter, where high through-put speed is not a requirement. The systems locate internal and external defects and inconsistencies in the wall thickness of tubular products.
