PRAGMA introduces the new PragmaPro instrument platformPRAGMA4, Quebec City, Quebec, Canada
Québec City, March 1st, 2017 – PRAGMA is proud to introduce the new PragmaPro instrument platform. It boasts a 9-inch ultra-bright display with multitouch capability, a 1 GHz quad-core processor, two hot-swap batteries for up to 15 hours of operations, four USB connectors, Gigabit Ethernet, WiFi and many other latest technologies.
The new platform is based on a machined, powder-coated aluminum frame for shock-proofness, best sealing qualities and excellent heat dissipation. Its reusing the same « Unitop » rubberized man-machine interface that made the PRAGMA products unique. But in addition, it features 7 scrollwheels that are intended for the fastest operation of the menu system and direct control over parameters (gain, zero, etc.). The combined capabilities of the multi-touch and the scrollwheels will satisfy both the younger and older generations of NDT technicians.
The PragmaPro is based on a modular cartridge technology and supports
various NDT instrument modalities such as UT, PAUT, ECT and many more.
The new cartridges are also based on a machined, powder-coated frame for
maximum heat dissipation. This is practical to extend the outdoor temperature
range and/or to extend the power injected in the transducers.
