The Lowly Strain Relief

Protect a $5,000 phased-array transducer assembly with a $3 strain relief

Few people wake up in the morning and truly appreciate their cable’s strain reliefs. But SNI does.

In fact, in working with our key suppliers, we’ve spent a fair amount of time and money to develop an engineered product that will give our phased-array transducer customers added protection and insurance against cable failures.

Transducers are electro-mechanical devices that see wear and tear thorough normal usage especially with bending and twisting of the cable and its interface to the probe housing. A 128-element array transducer has two ends and 256 solder joints per end or over 500 solder connections per transducer!

SensorScan™ UT Transducers and SNI's Vertical Integration Path

Posted by Sensor Networks, Inc on Nov 15, 2018 6:19:53 PM

“The transducer enables and/or optimizes the UT exam,” Dane Hackenberger, Senior Transducer Designer.

SNI continues its march toward a more vertically-integrated design-build transducer business for both standard and custom phased-array transducers. The end-result for our customers is shorter lead times and consistent high-quality transducers at competitive prices.

Russ Berrier manages SNI’s ceramic shop which includes a precision dicing saw that can slice & dice piezo-ceramic materials into the size and matrix requirements for almost any industrial phased-array transducer.
