    Portable and rugged, ZIRCON is designed for demanding inspections. As the instrument of choice for any missioncritical ultrasonic application, ZIRCON offers a 32/128PR Phased Array configuration and two conventional UT channels for pulse-echo, pitch-catch or TOFD inspections. ZIRCON delivers significant benefits including automatic probe detection, self-diagnostics, an impressive data throughput and up to 1024 focal laws in a rock-solid fanless casing.

    Using the Time Reversal inspection technique, ZIRCON TR is the optimal choice for the inspection of CFRP (Carbon Fiber Reinforce Polymers) or other advanced lightweight materials.




    Battery-operated for portability

    • Up to 8 hours of battery life, you get the job done

    Compact and rugged for the real-world

    • Portable with no air intake means Zircon can easily be deployed virtually anywhere, even contaminated areas

    Easily handles advanced lightweight material inspections

    • ZIRCON TR supports the innovative Time Reversal technique for the inspection of complex lightweight materials like CFRP (Carbon Fiber Reinforce Polymers)

    Superior signal quality for better results

    • State-of-the-art electronics delivering high-quality and outstanding signal to noise ratio

    3-D Work Environment

    • Controlled by UltraVision® offering 3-D work environment for creation of components and data visualization
