Introducing Raptor™ - Superior Single Channel Leak Testing
HOUSTON --(Business Wire)--
Over fifty years after pioneering automated leak testing, Uson is still
introducing innovative new products with first-of-kind features. The
Raptor™ single channel pressure decay leak tester is the company's
latest addition to a comprehensive line of leak detection instruments,
equipment and automation systems.
Raptor™ is a compact bench-top leak tester with built-in touch screen
color display. It is programmable by a Uson App via an Apple (News - Alert)™ or
Android™ smart device tablet or phone. The user interface displays
pressure plot, countdown timers, step results, coupling outputs and the
current test pressure - keeping the operator informed of test status
throughout the cycle.
Technological advancement doesn't stop with the HMI. Inside the tester
is Uson's compact high performance Stallion™ valve manifold block.
Tested to 50,000,000 cycles, the Stallion™ valve block features
self-cleaning valves and individual valve port control for maximum
performance and reliability.
The new leak tester is available in ive pressure ranges from vacuum to
150psi, sufficient to cover most common air decay leak tests with
resolution to 0.001psi. Ten discrete digital inputs and outputs (I/O)
permit automation via PLC or computer interface, with data collection
via USB or Ethernet.
Raptor's ten on-board programs provide versatility for testing many
different types of parts. It has a small footprint and is lightweight at
only 10.5 lbs., allowing for a good smart fit into in a wide range of
applications and markets.
Gene Grilli, Uson's Director of Global Sales, comments: "Raptor takes
advantage of current Bluetooth smart device technology which today's
manufacturing professionals are familiar with, making the learning curve
very short. Raptor has the performance, features and ease of use
