In overall design and performance, the Contour Probe comprises a coil wound on a laminated steel leg assembly contained within the rugged moulded housing. Flexibility of the legs allows the field to actually be “focused” at the precise area of inspection.
The Contour Probe is electromagnetic, producing a strong AC magnetic field. Placement of the two poles (legs) upon ferrous materials merely provides a path for the intense magnetic field to pass from one pole to the other. The part completes the flux path and becomes highly magnetised. The Contour Probe is:
- Durable moulded construction.
- Powerful AC magnetic field.
- One year guarantee.
- All internal components are repairable.
The instrument that does so much, so well. For work with ferrous metals …. in the shipyard, aerospace, steel mill, foundry, weldment or vehicle overhaul.
Wide versatility. Mechanically, the B100S Probe will conform to practically any surface configuration. Strong, constant AC fields or high intensity pulsed DC fields, using the DC300 power supply.
One person package. The B100S Contour Probe is a complete magnetic package. One person easily performs a thorough and reliable inspection in a fraction of the time consumed by large bulky equipment.
Precise area inspection. Powerful magnetic fields are concentrated and applied to the precise area to be inspected. The construction of the new B100S Contour Probe allows for the replacement of all internal components.
MODEL B-100S: 230 V. 50/60 Hz. 3 A Amps. Weight: 2.95 kgs.
Optional Pulsed DC Power Supply: DC-300S (230 VAC. 50/60 Hz Input). The DC-300 contains an electronic circuit board assembly completely sealed within the housing. The B-100S Probe should be connected to the output power cord, while the input plug of the power supply should be connected to a grounded power source.
Pulsed DC magnetization: A DC field induced into a small work piece penetrates a larger cross section of the part and is inclined to spread out on each side of the line between the poles. The field energy is dispersed over a greater area. Thus, DC provides greater penetration for the detection of near surface defects in small parts. However, on some small parts it is possible that an excessive amount of field will saturate the part and cause a masking effect to the point where it is impossible to define a defect.
