[post_content] => Eddyfi Technologies has unveiled Panther, the latest addition to its suite of non-destructive testing (NDT) technologies. Able to provide unparalleled performance in a compact unit, Panther is a welcome contribution to ensuring the highest quality data is collected from inspections. Being able to see the most miniscule of defects – even those that aren’t visible on the surface – allows operators to drastically increase the longevity of their assets and instigate accurate repairs.
Panther is a phased-array device designed for both desktop and industrial applications. It is able to combine the speed required for industrial integrated phased-array ultrasonic techniques (PAUT) solutions with the most complete set of total focusing method (TFM) imaging techniques.
Described by Eddyfi as “the ultimate ultrasound imaging machine”, Panther comes with M2M’s state-of-the-art PAUT and TFM. The impressive features of the new technology include high-resolution imaging with 1.5 million pixels in real-time and a data throughput greater than 320 MB/s. It is compact and scalable from 32:128 to 2048:2048 channels. The use of CIVA-based Acquire operating software and an extensive software developer’s kit provides clients with fast, advanced and customisable configurations. When Panther is combined with Acquire, Eddyfi states it is “the fastest and most versatile PAUT/TFM solution on the market”. Acquire inspection data files are fully compatible with Enlight, CIVA and ULTIS analysis software.
“Panther is the result of more than 15-years’ experience gained in both laboratories and inline inspection business by our experts,” says Laurent Le Ber, product manager at Eddyfi. “Panther has been designed with tremendous processing power and a high data throughput between the instrumentation and the monitoring computer. It aims at meeting our customers’ highest expectation and needs.”
The initial release of the Panther targets laboratories and R&D groups. “The recent rise of graphics processing unit computing power in a compact, industrial and affordable format allowed us to provide a very flexible solution for both laboratories and individuals,” says Le Ber. “Panther bridges advanced phased-array methods such as TFM with the high-speed ultrasonic inspection requirements of the industry.”
In the near future, Panther will offer users high-speed inspection modes, targeting integrators for advanced industrial NDT inspections. Boasting a parallel and stackable architecture of up to 16 units of 128 channels each, Panther is expected to meet the speed and resolution requirements of the most demanding applications.
Eddyfi Technologies, based in Québec City, Canada, is highly experienced when it comes to NDT and eddy current technologies and has an extensive portfolio of sensors, instruments and software that facilitate critical component inspections in key industries. Alongside Eddyfi and MSM, its brands include Silverwing, Teletest and TSC.
With the aim of helping original equipment manufacturers, asset owners and service companies enhance productivity, save lives and protect the environment, Eddyfi invests massively in product advancement. Its goal is to feature various NDT modalities to achieve new limits. Eddyfi has worked across the oil and gas, aerospace, and power generation sectors and maintains a presence in Europe, the US, the UAE, South Africa and China.
