Eddycon С Purpose

Eddy current flaw detector Eddycon C is referred to the testing and evaluation means. It is intended for manual testing by eddy current technique for the presence of surface and subsurface defects, such as discontinuity of the material (cracks, overlaps, holes, fine cracks, etc.).

Capabilities and Serivce Functions of the Instrument

  • Possibility of defects detection with the depth – from 0,1 mm and width – from 0,002 mm;

  • eddy current signal display:
    • a) complex plane (XY) – allows to detect defects among interferences by analyzing the signal waveform;
    • b) generation of two channels can be used for suppression of interfering factors and reduction of their influence on testing results (for mixing an operator can choose one of 4 algorithms: addition, subtraction, addition with horizontal inversion and addition with vertical inversion).

a)

b)
