Cygnus W1 Probe Handler

Constructed from 316 stainless steel and designed for work class ROVs, this probe handler can be held by a manipulator arm by either a T bar or Fish Tail handle. Its double jointed coupling provides 15 degrees of movement in both planes guided by four pins - giving the optimal alignment. A shock absorbing spring reduces any impact. Any misalignment will be taken up by the coupling resulting in less movement of the manipulator arm position.

The Cygnus W1 Probe Handler is designed for Work Class ROVs.

We have used the probe handler W1 on a few projects in the North Sea and Baltic Sea with our ROV Panther XTP and it has proved to be a very useful and productive tool allowing us to carry out a UT reading within seconds whether it was probing a flat surface or a rounded surface, due to its design it is the perfect handle for subsea UT probing.
