The PAUT 32/128 is our cartridge for advanced phased array and mono/TOFD. It features 32 active channels, multiplexing over 128 elements, up to 1 GHz sampling per channel, and many other advanced features.

Probe compatibility

The cartridge features an I-PEX connector with standard pinout, offering PAUT probe compatibility with other brands.

I-PEX connector

200 Volts

Our state-of-the-art bipolar square-wave pulser is adjustable up to 200 Volts. That extra power sends more ultrasound energy in the material, to improve sensitivity or penetrate deeper.


Up to 1 GHz

The 4 independent mono-channels can sample up to 1 GHz, which allows for high-frequency transducers and new applications.

Up to 3000 Beams

Up to 3000 Beams (focal laws)

The beamformer can execute up to 3000 beams (focal laws) at a rate up to 30 kHz, which allows for super high-resolution imaging and/or extended volume coverage. It also provides a strong backbone for more advanced beamforming capabilities like FMC, TFM and Excitelet (options).
