Olympus Nortec 1000S Portable Eddy Current Flaw Detector

The Nortec 1000S+ offers a frequency range of 50 Hz to 12 MHz for applications ranging from detection of cracks in tubes or structures to sorting metals and on line part inspections. The Nortec 1000S+ was designed to meet the basic NDT eddy current application requirements, but also is well suited for detecting surface breaking cracks on ferrous and non-ferrous materials, weld integrity, thickness inspection, corrosion detection, bearing inspections, valves, bolts, wire lines and numerous other applications.

A single frequency, rugged and lightweight instrument weighing less than 4 lbs. (1.8 kg) with a single Li-Ion battery, the Nortec 1000S+ provides up to 12 hours of operation and is a truly portable instrument. An adjustable tilt bail and anti-slip bumper allow it to be placed on just about any surface. In a production environment, in the hangar, in the laboratory or in the field, the rugged case design withstands the harshest environments.

Customer-interchangeable displays offer the best visibility in any lighting conditions. A VGA output drives a heads up display for inspection where conditions may be cramped, a large desktop monitor, or projector for classroom training environments.

The Nortec 1000S+ incorporates our unique PowerLinkTM software, which provides automatic probe recognition and documentation. The instrument can be set up by recalling the program stored in the PowerLinkTM chip, providing integrity and repeatability of inspection results.

As many as 120 programs can be stored and recalled later. Date and time are recorded with each set-up and are easily identified with alphanumeric values up to 29 characters long. 20 memory locations are available to store eddy current displays.
