Québec City, Canada, September 2, 2014 – Eddyfi is thrilled to officially announce the launch of the second-generation Ectane® instrument. With several hundred units sold in over 50 countries over the last few years, the Ectane platform has become the new reference for electromagnetic non-destructive testing (NDT). Now, the best instrument just got even better.
The Ectane 2 – 100% engineered by Eddyfi – comes with a brand new powerful CPU and new electronics. With over 20 years of experience in the development of NDT instruments, Florian Hardy, CTO of Eddyfi comments: “This new design builds on the strengths of the original Ectane while providing key features and improvements for both tubing and surface applications. The onboard motor drive for rotating probes and current source are definitely features that speak to tubing customers, while the increased frequency range and speed will benefit those performing surface inspections.”
The new instrument leverages all of the original key advantages of the platform: powerful eddy current array capabilities and built-in IRIS UT in a compact, light and rugged casing running on battery power for 100% uptime, even in the worst conditions.
We also employ the world’s most renowned experts in the field of advanced eddy currents and electromagnetics, and they have the mission to push the limits of these technologies to new heights. Eddyfi develops the industry’s best performing and most reliable test instruments, acquisition and analysis software, as well as standard but, more importantly, specialized surface array and tubing probes. Eddyfi has the expertise, engineering, and manufacturing flexibility to supply fully integrated and specially made solutions that deliver superior performance to our customers.
