M2M Gekko® is a field-proven flaw detector offering PAUT, UT, TOFD and TFM through the streamlined user interface Capture. Released in 32:128, 64:64 or 64:128 channels configuration, Gekko combines high-resolution and speed while reducing inspectors’ training time.

Built on the strength of its predecessor and customers feedback, we are bringing Gekko to another level by adding new and improved features.

DESIGNED FOR FIELD

M2M Gekko®, the #1 PAUT unit with Total Focusing Method (TFM), has been upgraded based on inspectors feedback. Offering both conventional UT, TOFD and advanced PAUT, Gekko is the most versatile unit adapted to field conditions.

 

A COMPLETE PAUT PORTABLE UNIT

M2M Gekko includes all basics and advanced UT features in a reinforced compact casing designed for field use. It natively comes with conventional UT, TOFD and all beam-forming phased-array UT techniques for single-beam and multi-group inspection and its 3-encoded axis capabilities make the Gekko ready for any challenging inspection. This rugged PAUT unit also offers real-time TFM/FMC (full matrix capture) and Adaptive TFM techniques.

PORTABLE & ROBUST

Bumpers and connectors are designed for robustness and accessories versatility. The bright resistive touch screen allows outdoor use in rough conditions. Powered by 2 hot-swappable batteries, Gekko now reaches up to 6 hours of autonomy and becomes the ultimate reference in its product range.

COMPATIBLE WITH MOST ACCESSORIES

Coming with an IPEX type PA connector and a LEMO16 encoder, Gekko is compatible with Eddyfi accessories and most probes and scanners on the market. For other configurations, Eddyfi can provide the adapter to ensure compatibility with your current accessory.

NO COMPROMISE ON PERFORMANCE

The innovative electronics offers up to 128 channels, great signal quality and TFM resolution for improved detection and confidence. It now reaches a high scan speed and productivity.

FAST CONNECTIVITY SOLUTION

The connectivity solutions—dongle-activated WIFI, USB 3.0 connector and Gigabit Ethernet output—allow to speed up data transfer and to remotely control your inspection in challenging conditions (TeamViewer licence included). Moreover, the 256 GB SSD makes the operator’s work very comfortable with unlimited data file size, thus saving time in the field.

REINVENTING HIGH-DEFINITION PORTABLE UT

 

Pioneering real-time TFM since 2013, M2M Gekko innovation keeps being driven by market applications. Used in accredited training centers and ready for TFM standards, it benefits from advanced algorithms through a streamlined software user interface (Capture™). Simply powerful, Gekko brings the latest technology at your fingertips.

STREAMLINED WORKFLOW

Powered by Capture, the new generation Gekko has been designed to ease the setup process and save time for the inspectors operating in tough environments. The newly added onboard scan plan and analysis features join the popular 3-click wizards for evaluation of material velocities, amplitude balancing of transducer, flat- and curved-wedge calibration, as well as the automated TCG. Enriched to offer an all-in-one inspection solution -from application design to inspection and reporting- Capture offers the latest phased-array technologies in a couple of clicks.

 

BUILT FOR ALL-LEVEL UT INSPECTORS

With continuously added tools in one standalone application, Capture eases the inspection process and reduces operator errors. Without the need to use a third-party software to load basic and advanced procedures, all-level UT inspectors have access to performance through a visual and guided interface. Capture offers a quick way to improve PAUT knowledge, and requires minimum training for phased-array inspectors.
