OKOndt Eddycon CL Eddy Current Flaw Detector

OKOndt Eddycon CL Eddy Current Flaw Detector

Large Display, Fully Featured Eddy Current Flaw Detector

The Eddycon CL is an easy-to-use, full sized version of OKOndt's Eddy Current Flaw Detectors, capable of performing all common eddy current inspections. It has a 7.2” display for easy viewing of test results for each frequency mode, and features buttons that provide direct access to primary functions. It complies with ISO 15548, ensuring that the Eddycon CL will meet the requirements of the most demanding applications.

Applications:

  • Detection of surface cracks
  • Detects cracks in fastener holes of multi-layered aircraft structures using manual bolt hole probes or with the use of a rotary scanner
  • Detection of sub-surface flaws in non-magnetic conductive materials
  • Evaluation of conductivity and coating thickness of conductive/non-magnetic materials
  • Inspection of steel structures for fatigue and stress cracks
  • Can perform eddy current testing of aircraft components on all common aircraft
  • Used in Aerospace, Oil & Gas, Offshore Drilling Rigs, Amusement Park Rides, Railway, Mining and Machinery inspections

Key Benefits

HD Display

7.2" TFT color display with 800×480 pixels resolution ensures a large, high-definition picture on the screen. The screen has several display modes, such as light, dark, and standard.

 

Intuitive Software

The specialized application-dependent software of the Eddycon CL is user-friendly and intuitive, serving to process, generate and print out test results and reports. The software program allows working with the data saved on PC.

 

Quick Navigation

The keypad design gives a quick access to any menu of the flaw detector by pressing only a single key

  • TESTING menu - main operating mode of the flaw detector
  • MEMORY menu - is used to save/download the settings and test results
  • SETTINGS menu - basic settings of the flaw detector
  • VIEW menu - allows viewing test results saved to the flaw detector’s memory
  • CALIBRATION menu - serves to create calibration curves for more precise evaluation of flaw depth

 

 

Additional Features:

  • Easy-to-operate due to user-friendly intuitive interface.
  • Built-in stand for hands free operation
  • Visual and Audio alarms.
  • Strict compliance with ISO 15548.
  • Minimizes effect of lift-off and variations in electromagnetic properties.
  • Saving over 1000 settings and test results to the flaw detector memory.
  • Data communication to PC via USB flash drive or Ethernet.
  • Removable Micro SD Card
  • Specialized software for viewing test results and printing out test reports.
  • Application-dependent software for real-time displaying data on a PC.
  • Software upgrade using USB flash drives.

Modes

The Eddycon CL Flaw Detector can be operated in the following standard Modes. Only the probe, cable and accessory - rotating drive are required.

  • Absolute Probe
  • Reflection Probe
  • Differential Probe
  • Rotating Probe
  • Conductivity Measurement
  • Coating Thickness (Non-Conductive over Conductive)

Probe Selection

Eddycon C can be used with a wide variety of eddy current probes, including most competitors' probes. See below for a quick guide to the different kinds available:
Surface Probes, Sub-Surface Probes, Manual Rotating Probes, Dynamic Rotating Probes, Weld Probes & Encircling Probes

 

Surface Probes:

Surface Probes are handheld and are used by making contact with the test surface. They use relatively high operating frequencies (over 1 MHz) and are good for detecting surface defects that are oriented perpendicular to the test surface.

Sub-Surface Probes:

In order to detect flaws such as corrosion in the layers of multilayer aircraft structures, Subsurface Probes are required. Sub-Surface Probes allow effective eddy current testing even without removing fasteners or disassembling structures.

Manual Rotating Probes:

Manual Rotating Probes (aka Bolt Hole Probes) are used for detecting surface cracks on the inside of fastener holes. They are available in virtually every diameter and cover a range of diameters (0.5 or 1 mm). They are available as absolute and differential models with a frequency range of 200 kHz to 3 MHz.

Dynamic Rotating Probes:

Dynamic Rotating Probes (aka Dynamic Bolt Hole Probes) are used for testing bolt holes and countersinks. They are specifically designed to be used with the OKOndt SVR Rotating Probe Drive and Eddycon Flaw Detectors. They can be supplied as shielded or unshielded models with operating frequencies from 200 kHz to 3MHz.

Weld Probes:

Weld Probes are specifically designed for testing painted steel structures like offshore drilling rigs, bridges, etc for fatigue cracks that typically occur at the toe of a weld and in the HAZ, which is difficult to inspect due to changes in magnetic properties like lift-off. OKOndt’s Weld Probes are specially designed differential probes that optimize the signal from a crack while minimizing the effects of lift-off and permeability (due to variable coating thickness and magnetic properties).

Encircling Probes:

Encircling Probes are designed for testing cylindrical objects made of non-magnetic materials, like steel bars. As the name implies, they generally “encircle” the material to be tested and inspect from the outer diameter. OKOndt’s Encircling probes can be used in an absolute mode or differential mode when paired with a 2nd coil. They are used for sorting (alloy or hardness), as well as in flaw detection applications such as weld defects, cracks, etc. in rods and tubing.
