New Portable Conductivity Meter from ETher NDE – The SigmaCheck

ETher NDE, Ltd. has introduced 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 company says 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 full colour 2.8” LCD display screen is 320 x 240 pixels providing excellent resolution and displaying conductivity results with up to three decimal places in accuracy. The display features an adjustable LED backlight allowing the Operator to set their required screen brightness. This is teamed with the users ability to customise the background and text colours to meet their personal requirements.
The SigmaCheck is easy to hand-hold due a sculpted housing designed to fit in your hand and a convenient size and weight; only 350g and measuring 163mm long x 80mm wide x 25mm deep. 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:
• Field Exchangeable Probes via SD Card
• True USB PC Connectivity for remote control and data logging.
• The USB Connection allows easy charging of the Instrument without having to swap the batteries.
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.
