Verasonics’ Universal Transducer Adaptor (UTA) enables a Vantage user to quickly convert the system to operate transducers with other types of connectors. In addition to adapters for the standard single and dual 260-pin connectors, there are UTA adapters for 360-pin connectors and 408-contact transducers plus a new adapter for Hypertronics and single channel LEMO connectors.
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:
Enables use of high-performance, low noise connectors
Allows for transducers up to 256 elements without a multiplexer
Provides additional signal paths for probes requiring additional grounding, power supply, digital control signals, etc.
Retains compatibility with Verasonics transducers and HDI transducers made by ATL Ultrasound
Simple and fast to change with system re-boot
All Vantage systems can be upgraded to the UTA
One UTA adapter is included with every Vantage system purchase. Additional adapters are available. Older Vantage systems can be upgraded to the UTA technology.
