PRAGMA is specialized in the design, manufacturing and selling of portable instruments and systems for non-destructive testing (NDT). Our Phased Array Ultrasound Solutions are helping markets such as aerospace, oil and gas, transportation and heavy industries.
The PragmaPro is based on a modular cartridge technology and supports various NDT instrument modalities such as UT, PAUT, ECT and many more. This new platform is based on a machined, powder-coated aluminium frame for shock-proof qualities, sealed with maximum heat dissipation. This is practical to extend the outdoor temperature range and/or to extend the power injected in the transducers. The PragmaPro is aiming at a very wide range of applications, such as weld scanning, corrosion mapping and composite testing.
This platform was engineered for scanner-mounted instrumentation. It’s essentially a docking for a standard cartridge in order to allow remote control using Ethernet. Because it has no display or battery, it’s smaller than a PragmaLite. However, it’s got the same connectors plus industrial inputs and outputs.
If your inspection is automated, the PragmaPod will bring instrumentation close to the moving search unit(s). That will reduce the cable length significantly, which will improve signal quality, simplify the umbilical, and avoid accidents that can damage your probe(s).
The platform can be used with several cartridges: one cartridge per NDT modality. So one day you can inspect with phased array, then the next EMAT or eddy current or something else.
