Phased Array Ultrasonic Flaw Detector MANTIS

Product Description

The little brother of the GEKKO: similarly powerful, but much more compact. The 16:64 phased array channel configuration and two conventional ultrasound channels provide all possibilities from standard inspection tasks up to multi-group applications.

Simplest operator guidance and modern ultrasonic techniques such as the Total Focusing Method (TFM) complete the image of a classic all-rounder.

Key Facts

  • CIVA-supported creation of test parameters and thus very fast calculation of delay laws even for complex test problems (matrix arrays, curved components)
  • Total Focusing Method (TFM) in real time
  • Extensive result representations (A-, B-, C-, D-scans, top view, side view, 3D representation, dynamic curves etc.)
  • Extremely low crosstalk between adjacent channels (cross-talk attenuation > 50 dB), thus a good signal-to-noise ratio for the A-scan and high-contrast B- and C-scans
  • Up to 3 encoder inputs
  • Runtime and angle dependent sensitivity adjustment, DGS


The MANTIS portable Phased Array Ultrasonic Flaw Detector is available in three versions:

  • MANTIS 16:64PR (order no.: 1042.101)
    Basic unit for simplest PA applications, not capable of multi-groups
  • MANTIS 16:64PR-TFM16 (order no.: 1042.102)
    Additionally multi-group capability and TFM with 16 parallel channels
  • MANTIS 16:64PR-TFM64 (order no.: 1042.103)
    Additional TFM with 64 channels in multiplex operation

The MANTIS operating software is available with two runtime licenses:

  • CAPTURE™ GO for MANTIS, licensed 12 months (order no.: 1042.220)
  • CAPTURE™ GO for MANTIS, licensed 60 months (order no.: 1042.225)
