The Cygnus S1 Probe Handler is designed for performing UT thickness surveys on ships’ hulls with an Observation or Light work class ROV. The Cygnus G1 Probe Handler is designed for use on Observation, Inspection and Light-work class ROVs.
On contact with the hull plate two sets of magnets first grip the steel, then as the ROV pushes forward the UT probe is allowed to tilt to align it to the hull surface placing the UT probe in the optimal position for measurement with the ROV pilot just having to maintain gentle forward thrust while the measurement is taken. The S1 probe holder is constructed from acetyl with stainless steel fixings keeping the overall weight down.
Cygnus G1 Probe Handler
Constructed from acetal it is both strong and lightweight, it features an adjustable mounting bracket allowing optimum positioning of the UT probe. The UT probe is located in an articulated mount that allows up to 15 degrees of movement in both planes allowing automatic alignment of the probe face to the measurement surface making the ROV pilot’s job easier.
