What Nortec 600?
The Olympus NORTEC 600 is a compact, durable, high-performance digital circuitry and eddy current flaw detector. Olympus NORTEC 600 flaw detectors are designed to generate highly visible and contrasting eddy current signals in all kinds of lighting conditions displayed on a vivid 5.7-inch VGA screen.
What is eddy current flaw detector?
Eddy Current Flaw Detectors by Olympus are suitable for inspecting metallic parts accurately. The Eddy Current probes produce magnetic fields that induce current, which flows in the test piece, impacting the magnetic field, magnitude and phase of the coil voltage.
What are eddy current probes?
In an eddy current probe, an alternating current flows through a wire coil and generates an oscillating magnetic field. The eddy current instrument plots changes in the impedance amplitude and phase angle, which can be used by a trained operator to identify changes in the test piece.
What can eddy current detect?
Eddy current testing is a non-destructive testing (NDT) inspection method used for a variety of purposes, including for flaw detection, material and coating thickness measurements, material identification and establishing the heat treatment condition of certain materials.
What are the limitations of eddy current testing?
The Disadvantages of ECT Technology A primary disadvantage of ECT is that it only works with a current, meaning it cannot be applied to non-conductive materials. It’s also non-conductive with ferromagnetic materials, as ECT equipment is subject to permeability changes on the welds.
How do you choose eddy current probes?
When selecting eddy current probes, adopt a holistic approach. Consider the heritage of the manufacturer, their investments in research and development, and their ability to apply decades of experience to design custom solutions to meet your unique inspection needs.
What are the different inspection probes used in eddy current testing?
Eddy current probes
- Conductivity probe (Reflection type)
- Right angle surface probe (Reflection type)
- Straight surface pencil probe (Reflection type)
- Dynamic Rotating Rigid Probe (with stainless steel housing) for bolt holes testing (coils are positioned at right angles to the probe shaft length, Differential Unshielded)
Is eddy current UT?
ultrasonic testing (UT), both technologies can deliver quality data. For instance, eddy current testing (ECT) is more conducive to flatter welds and surface flaws than ultrasonic testing. On the other hand, ultrasonic testing is better at detecting flaws on a volumetric level, including thicker welds.
What is eddy current gauge?
A dry film thickness gauge, eddy current is an electronic tool used to measure the thickness of non-conductive coatings on conductive but nonferrous or nonmagnetic substrates like brass, aluminium, copper or aluminium.
What are differential probes used in eddy current NDT?
Differential probes have two active coils usually wound in opposition, though they could be wound in addition with similar results. When the two coils are over a flaw-free area of test sample, there is no differential signal developed between the coils since they are both inspecting identical material.
What are the features of the Nortec 600?
With its crisp and vivid 5.7 inch VGA display and true full-screen mode, the NORTEC 600 is capable of producing highly visible and contrasting eddy current signals in any lighting condition.
Is the Olympus Nortec 600 en-15548 compliant?
The Olympus NORTEC 600 is EN-15548 compliant and designed to meet IP66 requirements. All NORTEC models come with a LEMO 16-way universal connector and a BNC connector for absolute probes.
What is the best portable eddy current flaw detector?
The NORTEC® 600 has one of the most brilliant displays available on the portable eddy current flaw detector market. The unique brightness, resolution, and definition of its 5.7 inch VGA display makes it possible to interpret eddy current signals at a distance.
