Versatility and Compatibility
Four Models for All Your Needs
The NORTEC® 600 is available in four versatile instrument models to meet the widest range of inspection needs. From the basic model upward, each unit unlocks more features. For maximum convenience, additional features can also be unlocked remotely
Portable and Lightweight
The NORTEC 600 weighs only 1.6 kg and is delivered with a factory-installed hand strap that provides direct thumb access to the key controls, offering genuine handheld versatility to operators.
Two Probe Connectors
All models of the NORTEC 600 come with the standard LEMO 16-way universal connector, as well as a BNC connector for absolute probes. Simply select the connector in the instrument interface. When reading from the BNC connector, the instrument features automatic internal balancing for hassle-free operation.
The 16-way LEMO connector also supports the PowerLink NORTEC technology, which features automatic probe recognition and instrument presets for quicker setups.
Compatible with Current Procedures and Other Manufacturers
To simplify inspection, the NORTEC 600 includes all the legacy modes and layouts used in existing NORTEC-specified procedures, as well as those used by many other equipment manufacturers. Standard impedance plane view, sweep mode (strip chart), split screens, adjustable null point, crosshairs, improved filter response, reference signal display, and several other useful features are all part of the NORTEC 600 package.
Offering compatibility with many other probe and rotary scanner manufacturers, the NORTEC 600’s accessories include cables and adaptors such as a 12-way LEMO, an 11-way Fischer, and more. The proper adaptor or scanner cable make it possible to benefit from all the outstanding capabilities of the NORTEC 600, without investing heavily in probes and accessories.
One of the Most Brilliant Displays in the Industry
Vibrant VGA Display
The NORTEC® 600 has one of the most brilliant displays available on the portable eddy current flaw detector market. The unique brightness, resolution, and definition of its 5.7 inch VGA display makes it possible to interpret eddy current signals at a distance. The user-selectable color schemes ensure that the display is equally clear and easy-to-read whether you are using the NORTEC 600 indoors or outside.
True Full-Screen Display
In addition to impressive size and brightness, the NORTEC 600’s VGA display also features a new full-screen mode that can be activated at the touch of a key.
Available for all applications and in all display modes, the full-screen mode really comes in handy when reading signals over an extended period of time.
Depending on your NORTEC 600 model, you can choose between the following displays:
- single impedance plane.
- dual impedance plane.
- sweep (strip chart).
- split screen (sweep + impedance).
- dual impedance plane.
- all-in-one display featuring up to 3 configurable traces.
