Cygnus ROV Mountable
Subsea Ultrasonic Thickness Tester
Key Features of the Cygnus ROV Mountable Tester
- Multiple-Echo mode for accurate, through-coat measurements as specified by Classification Societies
- Supplied with CygLink software to display and process measurements on a computer at the surface
- Selectable Deep-Coat mode ignoring coatings up to 20mm thick
- Fitted with a safety Pressure Relief Valve and Securing Eye
- Easy calibration at the surface via CygLink software or TopSide Repeater (TSR) unit
- Removable end plate for full serviceability
- Wet mateable ‘MC’ style underwater connectors.
- Optional Topside Repeater (TSR) unit allowing readings to be displayed remotely and superimposed onto ROV’s camera screen
- Optional purpose-built ROV probe handlers for optimal alignment.
Cygnus-Pioneered Multiple Echo Technique
- Measures remaining metal thickness on corroded and coated structures
- All measurements are error checked using 3 return echoes to give repeatable, reliable results
- Accepted by all major classification societies
- Greatly reduces inspection time and costs
- Echo strength indicator to aid measurement.
CygLink Computer Software
CygLink is a Windows® application that allows remote viewing, control and data logging of the ROV tester. The software can generate survey reports in PDF or export to a CSV file. Designed for Windows® 7 and above.
The latest version of CygLink software is available to download from ‘Software Downloads’.

To compliment Cygnus’ range of ultrasonic thickness testers we offer a range of portable UTM probes. The performance of any ultrasonic thickness tester relies heavily on the probe and its suitability to the material being tested. Therefore, selecting the right probe is vital.
All of Cygnus’ Single Crystal portable UTM probes are made from stainless steel and include replaceable membranes for long life, requiring no zeroing and have a high linear accuracy.
