STIX Upgradeable


This exclusive modular approach starts from a simple and functional STIX 2 wedge magnetic scanner that can be upgraded to fit any required configurations by adding one of the modular options.

Any Sonatest Phased Array and TOFD wedges can be accommodated and the integrated latch allows easy PCS (Probe Centre Spacing) adjustments and scanner installation. A Park brake is provided to hold the scanner in any desired location. All the wheels (magnetic or not) are coated with urethane to prevent foreign debris from hindering smooth rolling of the scanner.

Each STIX system includes a spring loaded module to ensure accurate positioning. The encoder output is fully compatible with Sonatest instruments.
