Cygnus W1 Probe Handler

Designed for work-class ROVs and the option of either a T-bar or Fish Tail handle. This probe handler provides 15 degrees of movement in both planes, allowing optimal alignment thanks to its double jointed coupling.

Designed for work-class remotely operated underwater vehicles and constructed from 316 stainless steel, this probe handler benefits from:

  • Optimal alignment thanks to the double jointed coupling, providing 15 degrees of movement in both planes guided by four pins
  • Shock absorbing spring, reducing any impact
  • Misalignment will be taken up by the coupling, resulting in less movement of the manipulator arm position
  • Can be held by a manipulator arm by either a T-bar or Fish Tail handle.

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.
