Portable eddy current flaw detectors introduced

March 13, 2007

Olympus NDT has introduced its Nortec 500 Series of portable eddy current flaw detectors.

Available in three lightweight configurations, the flaw detectors include a 6.5-in. diagonal full VGA color LCD for increased resolution. Internal balance coils allow use of absolute probes without the need for external balance coil adapters. A built-in preamplifier adds extra gain when needed. VGA output allows for optional heads-up display for hands-free operation, while the optional remote-null adapter adds convenience and assures safety.

The Nortec 500 includes PowerLink™ for automatic probe recognition and program setup. It delivers basic single frequency eddy current inspection, including external outputs. The Nortec 500S adds digital conductivity, coating thickness measurement, and rotating scanner use. The Nortec 500D matches the 500S and includes dual frequency capabilities.

The flaw detectors are packaged in foreign object debris-free cases with a single Li-Ion battery suitable for demanding environments and intense applications.
