New PECT instrument

The new PECT instrument comprises a ruggedized tablet computer connected to a data acquisition unit. The set is splash water tight, robust and easy to operate. Data collection is fast (two measurements per second) and has a scanning mode. The data is analysed in real-time with various quality control features that assists the operator to correctly analyse the data.

There are three standard probes, each for a different lift-off range. The probes are optimized for defect sensitivity.
The instrument can either be operated from the probe and from the tablet computer.

Colour-coded wall thickness readings are displayed on the touch screen display during data recording.
A MS-Excel field report can be produced quickly by the tablet computer. In addition, PC-based software is provided for further analysis and reporting.

Fast and reliable PECT measurements require a high-energy magnetic pulse, which is delivered by a dedicated powerful battery inside the data acquisition unit. The tablet computer is powered by two separate batteries. Both type of batteries are provided with external chargers and are hot-swappable.
