Eddyfi Ectane Tube Inspection System

Hello Experts,

Does anybody have a feed back about the Eddyfi Ectane Tube Inspection System from Canada? I have seen the features of this machine and sounds quite interesting. Can anyone please let me know whether to go for MS5800 or ECTANE?

Dear Sir,

I am the Sales Director for Eddyfi, I would be glad to answer any questions you might have. I sold MS-5800's for 10 years and it is a good instrument but it is 12 years old. The Ectane is updated hardware and has a lot more capabilities for future developments.

Feel free to contact me and I would be glad to give you references.

Regards,

Bruce Stetler

IMHO - MS5800 is proven and more capable as functions RFT, Iris, MFT, MFL where ectane is still new and all new tech items will have a crash curve. I think ectane is also overpriced. If you want to experiment with new surprises go with ectane

Dear All,

I am product manager of the Ectane 2 instrument for Eddyfi, I would be glad to answer and add comments to the discussion thread here and correct a few facts.

Ectane 2 instrument is a proven technology which is now used by a majority of NDT inspector requiring EC technologies. The Ectane 2 is the second product generation which includes all existing technology available with the old MS 5800, and much more.

Here are a few comparisons, the Ectane 2:
- Uses up-to-date technology
- Is three times smaller than MS5800, with half is weight
- Supports ECT, ECA, RFT, NFT, MFL and IRIS all built-in, no external module needed
- Supports up to 256 ECA channels, against 64
- Is battery powered
- Is Sealed
- Has ECT frequency range of up to 10 MHz, against 6 MHz
- Has 3x encoders input, against 2x

The complete specifications are available on our website.

Dear you also need to consider the technical support you will have available. It is not a minor aspect. Personally I had bad experiences with olympus. As for the equipment itself, no problem.
Best regards,

Ezequiel.-
