Announced as a comprehensive, turn-key system for rugged operating environments, IAS 50 comprises a high-performance, five-channel, ultrasonic generator/control unit. It is coupled with a two-axis motion controller and a data acquisition system. The motion controller is connected to a mechanized, automatic scanning robot. The data acquisition system is provided with application-specific imaging and analysis software.

IAS 50 is available with a series of ultrasonic probes and probe holders to allow a variety of inspections on flat or curved surfaces. Its operation in five-channel mode reportedly reduces inspection times up to 80% when compared with single probe configurations.
