The »Ultrasonic sensors and processes« workgroup of Fraunhofer IKTS at the Dresden Klotzsche site is in charge of methodical planning and simulation-based optimization of ultrasonic-based test methods as well as their implementation in devices and equipment. All this is done primarily based on the institute’s own PCUS® pro-Plattform. The devices and software of the PCUS® pro family are developed by the workgroups »Electronics for testing systems« and »Software for testing systems«. If required, highly sensitive and reliable ultrasonic probes and sensors for special applications complete the platform. These are designed and manufactured in the institute’s own lab.
