Parker Research DA-1500

1,500 Amp

DA-1500 - 1500 amp Magnetic Power Pack

The Parker Research DA-1500 portable heavy duty magnetic inspection unit, provides high output AC or HWDC fields for magnetic particle inspection.

Original Design. Analog Meter. Many years of heavy duty magnetic particle inspection. New Digital LCD display is easy to read in any light condition. Overall accuracy has been enhanced thanks to a new circuit design.


  • Field selection is determined by using the appropriate field cable connector
  • Current output is infinitely variable from zero to maximum by use of the current control located on the front panel and is indicated by the panel meter
  • Actual current output is determined by cable size and length
  • AC magnetic fields offer the best sensitivity for detection of surface defect indications
  • The AC field is also beneficial for demagnetizing after inspection
  • Half-Wave DC magnetic fields provide for the detection of certain subsurface detect indications
  • DC fields penetrate a cross section of the test area rather than just the surface
  • Optional magnetizing cables can be equipped with prods for circular magnetization. The cables can be wrapped around parts to form a coil for longitudinal magnetization.
  • Demagnetization is accomplished in a similar manner
