About the Unit:

The Nortec 500 Series, Olympus NDT’s newest eddy current flaw detectors incorporate a full range of features: internal balance coils, VGA output connector (for heads up displays, monitors, and projectors), and a USB interface for rapid information transfer. The Nortec 500 also includes PowerLink™, for automatic probe recognition and program set-up. 

The Nortec 500 improves on previous Nortec eddy current instruments and is available in four configurations. Each configuration includes USB port and increased resolution with reduced noise. Internal balance coils allow use of inexpensive absolute probes without the need for external balance coil adapters. A built-in preamp adds extra gain when needed for difficult tests. VGA output allows for the addition of a optional “heads up display” allowing hands free operation.

The optional remote-null adapter adds convenience by allowing the probe to be nulled and the instrument screen erased from the probe. 

Where weight is critical, the smaller battery lightens the instrument to 2.8 lbs (1.2 kg) while keeping the full VGA resolution and display size. 

Nortec Models:

The Nortec 500 delivers basic single frequency eddy current inspection including external outputs. 

The Nortec 500C adds digital conductivity and coating thickness measurement capability in addition to basic single frequency eddy current inspection. 

The Nortec 500S builds on the foundation of the N500C and adds the ability to use rotating scanners. 

The Nortec 500D adds dual frequency capabilities to all the functions of the 500S. (selected model)
