Ectane 2

EddyFi – Ectane 2 

• New CPU Board — The Ectane 2’s new board (100% Eddyfi) has a faster CPU, which delivers more punch for ultrafast probe nulling and real-time processing. This greatly contributes to making quality inspections with the Ectane 2 easier than ever before with any technology combination, whether it is ECT, ECA, TECA, RFT, NFT, NFA, MFL, or IRIS.

• Improved Maximum Frequency — The maximum ECT frequency is now 10 MHz, which offers more flexibility and better performance in a variety of tubing and surface applications.
• Current Source for Saturation Probes — Available on the 41-pin connector, this built-in source can be programmed to control the current output that feeds into partial saturation ECT probes and magnetic bias ECT probes.
• Motor Drive for RPC Probes — The Ectane 2 is capable of driving motorized rotating pancake coil (RPC) probes, thanks to its powerful built-in motor drive. This is useful in applications where RPC probes are used to find longitudinal and circumferential cracks

Benefit 1 — Portability and autonomy
The Ectane 2 test instrument is approximately 10 L (688 in3) in volume and weighs in at 6.8 kg (15 lb), making it about three times more compact than other legacy test instruments. The Ectane 2 is therefore easy to carry beyond being rugged. The instrument is also battery powered — 8 hours of autonomy eliminates the need for an external power source.

Benefit 2 — Built-in technological versatility
Non-destructive testing of tubing and surfaces relies on a number of techniques, which often depend on the application and the materials involved. Use the Ectane 2’s built-in capabilities with almost any combination of the following testing technologies, according to your needs:
• Eddy current testing (ECT)
• Eddy current array (ECA)
• Tangential eddy current array (TECA™)
• Remote-field testing (RFT)
• Near-field testing (NFT)
• Near-field array (NFA)
• Magnetic flux leakage (MFL)
• Internal rotating inspection system (IRIS) ultrasonic testing

Whatever the technology, the Ectane 2 can drive it without external boxes or clumsy connections.

The Ectane 2 can also drive partial saturation ECT probes and magnetic bias ECT probes with its onboard current source, and RPC probes with its motor drive.

Benefit 3 — Superior connectivity 
BootP has always proven to be extremely cryptic and notoriously difficult to use. The Ectane 2 is designed to be plugged into your network and simply work. There’s no longer any need for BootP, which means you can be up and running in next to no time.
