The Woodpecker WP-632AM-R Handpiece is the latest incarnation of the Woodpecker automated tap tester. It offers all the advantages of the previous models but is supplied with a remote probe as standard, with the option of using a smaller XY plotter.
Having an LCD display built into the Handpiece, it clearly shows the set and measured contact times (in mili seconds), making it easier to set up on the test standard. With integrated battery backup RAM (BBRAM), the unit data logs points giving a record / history that can be saved creating traceability of a scan.
A Function Test Kit is also included with the unit, which means that it can be function tested in-house to the manufacturer's specification without the need for other expensive equipment. Note that this does not replace the necessity for annual calibration (if required), which is recommended on an annual basis.
The XY plotter is available as an option for the Woodpecker WP-632AM-R Handpiece. It allows the user to measure the contact time (in milliseconds) of the structure under test and displays the position of the unit on a PC (as a colour tile map or numerically) if used in real-time. This record can be saved and printed creating traceability of a scan.
The WP-632AM-R Handpiece has been available since November 2021 and replaces all previous Woodpecker WP-632 Series Models.
