About the Unit:

NORTEC™ 600 Eddy Current Flaw Detector
Performance and Innovation in Eddy Current

Olympus combines its latest advancements in high-performance digital circuitry and eddy current flaw detection into one compact and durable portable unit—the NORTEC 600 eddy current flaw detector. With its crisp and vivid 5.7-inch VGA display and true full-screen mode, the NORTEC 600 flaw detector can produce highly visible and contrasting eddy current signals in any lighting condition.

The redesigned interface of the NORTEC 600 flaw detector borrows the intuitive, knob-operated navigation of its NORTEC predecessors and combines it with the simple menu structure and highly efficient direct-access keys of other popular Olympus instruments. Available in four versatile models, the NORTEC 600 flaw detector offers a wide range of innovative functionalities, including an Application Selection menu, an all-in-one display, real-time readings, and signal calibration in Freeze mode, helping ensure that inspections are quick and easy for any level of operator.

One of the Most Brilliant Displays in the Industry 
Vibrant VGA Display
The NORTEC™ 600 eddy current flaw detector 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 make it possible to interpret eddy current signals at a distance. The user-selectable color schemes help ensure that the display is both clear and easy to read whether you are using the device indoors or outside.

True Full-Screen Display
In addition to impressive size and brightness, the NORTEC 600 eddy current flaw detector’s VGA display also features a new full-screen mode that can be activated simply by touching 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 the model, you can choose between the following displays:
• Single impedance plane.
• Dual impedance plane.
• Sweep (strip chart).
• Split screen (sweep + impedance).
• Waterfall.
• All-in-one display featuring up to 3 configurable traces.

Intuitive, Easy-to-Use Interface
Productivity and Simplicity Combined
When developing the NORTEC™ 600 user interface, we wanted to create the ideal combination of simplicity, efficiency, and intuitiveness. The result is a totally redesigned navigation system that significantly reduces the learning curve, all while maintaining a high level of productivity during inspection, even for novice operators.
All the benefits of this redesigned user interface are available in more than 15 languages.

Outstanding Signal Performance for Real-World Applications
Surface Inspection
The high-performance electronics and unique vibrant display of the NORTEC™ 600 eddy current flaw detector provide an outstanding signal quality for surface inspection.

The instrument also includes all the standard features for medium-high frequency surface inspection, including impedance plane views, 10 × 10 grid, sweep (strip chart), multiple alarm configurations, automatic lift-off, etc. Added features such as null point crosshairs, fine (expanded) and web grids, and the automatic internal balance circuit (for BNC connector) make the NORTEC 600 flaw detector a proficient surface inspection tool.

Wheel Inspection
The efficiency of the NORTEC 600 eddy current flaw detector’s advanced circuitry is best demonstrated when performing wheel inspections. The probes used for this application usually present lower-amplitude signals, often requiring a preamplifier. However, the flaw detector’s wide gain range (0–100 dB) and leading-edge electronics deliver excellent quality signals during wheel inspection, without requiring a preamplifier.

Improved Filters for Bolt Hole Inspection (600S and 600D)
The simplified configuration and improved filter system of the NORTEC™ 600 eddy current flaw detector make it an ideal instrument for bolt hole (rotary scanner) inspection. The flaw detector’s filters are set by default to a “figure 6” response, the typical shape of the rotary bolt hole application. The filters can also be set to the “figure 8” response, as needed. For an even easier configuration, operators can activate the Link option, which automatically adjusts the filter settings according to the scanner’s speed settings.

Conductivity and Coating Thickness Measurement (600C, 600S, and 600D)
The improved conductivity mode of the NORTEC 600 
flaw detector features a straightforward calibration wizard featuring user-defined conductivity and coating thickness references. The instrument is capable of measuring conductivity and non-conductive coating thicknesses of up to 0.64 mm (0.025 in.) on non-ferromagnetic materials.

Optimized for Weld Inspection
Thanks to its portable, rugged, and durable design, the NORTEC™ 600 eddy current flaw detector is ideally suited for performing weld inspection in extreme environments. When inspecting a weld while using rope access, the chest harness can be attached to its four-point anchors.

The instrument features an inspection-ready weld setup that helps simplify instrument preparation and calibration. Paint thickness can also be evaluated in both single or dual frequency mode (the NORTEC 600D model only).

Legacy Indexing Scanner Support in Critical Hole Inspection (600S and 600D)
With the NORTEC 600 eddy current flaw detector, inspecting critical holes is simple and reliable. Thanks to its legacy PS-5 indexing rotary scanner support, improved waterfall display, and layer cursor, the instrument pinpoints the location of flaws in layered structures with ease.

Automatic Mixing (600D)
The Auto-Mix feature of the NORTEC™ 600 flaw detector instantly mixes signals so that the residual (subtracted) signal is reduced to a minimum. This is particularly useful for heat exchanger tubing inspection.

Real-Time Readings
With the Real-Time Readings parameter, you can choose to display up to two real-time signal measurements in standard or full-screen modes. Displaying a variety of measurements reveals the various amplitude of angle (phase) characteristics of the signal.
