Panther Phased Array Systems

The Panther product range combines speed and performance of phased-array ultrasound technology in a compact format. Targeted towards integrators for inline inspections and laboratories for R&D, Panther products offer a flexible and scalable solution for generic and custom NDT.

REAL-TIME TOTAL FOCUSING METHOD (TFM) FOR HIGH SPEED INSPECTION

Recognized amongst the highest-resolution PAUT techniques, TFM is natively implemented on Panther. Combined with unparalleled data throughput, Panther offers faster imaging of larger inspection zones for easier evaluation.

COMPACT, RUGGED & SCALABLE

From 32:128 to 2048:2048 configurations, Panther compact units are scalable for automated inspection. With up to 16 units used in parallel, Panther offers a substantial increase in inspection speed.
• Unlimited number of probes
• Unlimited number of groups
• Up 13k+ focal laws
Panther is IP54. Its casing has external fans for optimized heat dissipation with no air intake.

FASTEST DATA THROUGHPUT

Uniquely equipped with a 320MB/s high-speed link, Panther offers the fastest data throughput of the market.

ADVANCED PHASED-ARRAY MODES

The CIVA-based Acquire monitoring software and its extensive SDK allow managing fast industrial modes and advanced laboratory configurations:
• 3D CAD configuration and rendering
• LINEAR, MATRIX, DLA, DMA, DAISY, ANNULAR, SECTORIAL probes
• PE, TOFD, PAUT, FMC, PWI, TFM Imaging techniques
• FAST modes
• SAUL modes
• Adaptive TFM modes
• 3D real-time imaging
