New SigmaCheck Eddy Current Conductivity MeterETher NDE10, Harpenden, Hertfordshire, United Kingdom
ETher NDE, Ltd. is pleased to introduce the new SigmaCheck Eddy Current Conductivity Meter. The SigmaCheck is designed to provide the user with fast and accurate conductivity measurements at a reasonable price.
The SigmaCheck is extremely easy to use making it suitable for use by shop inspectors or engineers. The SigmaCheck meets the requirements for conductivity measurements in the Aircraft manufacture and maintenance fields where conductivity measurements are used to verify proper alloy/temper or detect heat damaged components.
The SigmaCheck is also useful to determine the purity of precious metals (counterfeit detection) such as gold bullion and coins. The SigmaCheck has a large, color, LCD display that is easily seen in all lighting conditions.
The SigmaCheck is easy to hand-hold due a sculpted housing designed to fit in your hand and a convenient size and weight; only 3/4 of a pound (350g.) and measuring less than 6 1/2" tall x 3 1/4" wide x 1" thick (163x80x25mm). A removable, silicon rubber boot is included to protect the instrument in rough environments. The standard Probe has been designed to comfortably fit the hand of the user.
The SigmaCheck has a standard operating frequency of 60 kHz and auxiliary frequencies of: 120, 240, 480 and 960kHz can be selected when necessary for testing thin materials with the standard probe.
Other features of the ETher NDE SigmaCheck include:
The SigmaCheck is supplied with a carry case (a flame retardant ABS case is also available as an optional extra), a dual (Hi-Low) calibration block, probe cable, charger, USB lead, removable desk stand and user manual. Optional, small diameter probe will be offered.
