Verasonics’ Universal Transducer Adapter (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.
One UTA adapter is included with every Vantage system purchase. Additional adapters are available. Older Vantage systems can be upgraded to the UTA technology.
