Eddyfi brings to the field a combination of power and functionality that has never been available before in such a small and light remote data acquisition unit. The Ectane™ is a new kind of no-compromise, high-performance inspection instrument with a strong bent on usability. Ectane is a field-ready multi-technology surface, heat exchanger (HX), and tube inspection instrument. In many ways, we believe that the Ectane redefines the potential of electromagnetic technologies for surface and tube NDT inspections.

Small and Light
Key to the Ectane™ is the form factor and packaging. The instrument is compact, at roughly 610 in3 (10 liters). Its 100% magnesium alloy casing comes in at less than 15 lb (5.9 kg). with batteries and multiplexer. Such a light instrument does not need to be carried in a backpack or some kind of trolley; you can simply carry it in your hand.

Sealed Enclosure
With its rugged and completely sealed enclosure, you can use the Ectane in the world’s most inhospitable inspection environments, be it a nuclear contaminated area or a highly dusty environment.

Inspection Flexibility
The Ectane provides new features that will add flexibility to your inspection programs. The plug-and-play connectivity of the instrument and the self-calibration tool can all help increase the productivity and general efficiency of your team. The instrument’s two batteries can be used as your main source of power, or as backup power, should power from the outlet be interrupted during the acquisition. The remote control allows driving the acquisition sequence from a distance and also 1-man operation.

The SmartMUX™: an Integrated, Universal and Programmable Multiplexer
With the Ectane, Eddyfi introduces the game-changing SmartMUX, a multiplexer that resides inside the instrument. Array probes now connect directly to the Ectane’s single or double 160-pin connector. The SmartMUX is also programmable, to support any coil topology. You program it directly from a convenient software wizard. With such versatility, the Ectane allows users and probe designers alike to take advantage of any absolute, differential, or transmit-receive eddy current coil technology they want. The Ectane also expands the capacity of ECA to 256 elements. Modular by design, the instrument may be factory-retrofitted over time to increase channel capacity from 64 to 128 or 256 elements.

Light, rugged, portable, and sealed
Electromagnetic techniques such as RFT and MFL are used to inspect carbon steel and ferritic materials. The Ectane’s low frequency and excellent bandwidth filter capabilities combined with software-specific RFT features and voltage planes ensure effective defect identification and assessment. The Ectane instrument and Magnifi™ C-scan views are designed to support emerging array technologies (eddy current, remote field, and magnetic flux) for tube inspections. Array technologies leverage the Ectane’s 8 channels by multiplexing channel signals. Tube array probes that use the Ectane’s SmartMUX, or are equipped with their own on-board multiplexer, can identify and characterize axial and circumferential flaws. Also, the internal rotating inspection system (IRIS) technique uses an ultrasonic beam to measure wall thickness. This Ectane option, combined with innovative probe turbine technology, can provide high sensitivity data that are critical to structural integrity assessments in heat exchangers.
