Unique 3-click calibration wizards

In addition to complete scan plans for all techniques, smart 3-click calibration wizards will help you work faster:

  • Part and wedge velocity

  • Amplitude balancing and dead element check

  • Best-in-class wedge delay + angle calibration including AOD/COD wedges

  • Innovative and advanced TCG calibration

Wedge verification and TCG are essential calibration steps that have historically been complicated and time consuming. Capture does it accurately, quickly and easily.
