SM Instrument Inc. developed and released ultrasonic camera with LCD, called BATCAM on April, 2019. This is specialized for measuring and overseeing leakage and arc. It uses how ultrasound occurs. For example, when high pressure gas goes through small crack in pipe, ultrasound, which human can’t hear, occurs. ‘BATCAM’ then calculate the direction and distance of occurred sound, after sound wave goes through ultrasonic sensor array in order.
Additionally, BATCAM can detect where the problem took place very accurately. It is possible since its ‘sensor range’ maximizes the sound from gas leak, but minimalizes the noise from surroundings.
This innovative ultrasonic camera will be commercialized globally soon.
