Universal Transducer Adapters for NDE/NDT

Verasonics’ Universal Transducer Adaptor (UTA) enables a Vantage user to quickly convert the system to operate transducers with other types of connectors. From single-element connectors for individual transducers, to connectors for phased array transducers with multiple elements, the UTA adapters provide the ultimate flexibility.

Changing from one UTA to another is simple. It requires shutting down the system, loosening 4 screws by hand, removing the UTA, attaching the new UTA, retightening the screws and re-booting the system – this can be accomplished in just a few minutes.

Key Benefits of the UTA:

  • Allows for use of transducers with many types of connectors 
  • Enables use of high-performance, low noise connectors
  • Support for novel combinations of transducers
  • Easy and fast to change

One UTA adapter is included with every Vantage system purchase.  Additional adapters are available as needed.  Older Vantage systems can be upgraded to the UTA technology.
