SigmaCheck

Eddy Current (ECT) Conductivity Meter

The SigmaCheck EC Conductivity Meter has a large, color, LCD display that is easily seen in all lighting conditions.

FAST AND ACCURATE CONDUCTIVITY MEASUREMENTS

The SigmaCheck Eddy Current (ECT) Conductivity Meter is designed to provide the user with fast and accurate conductivity measurements at a reasonable price.The SigmaCheck EC Conductivity Meter is extremely easy to use making it suitable for use by shop inspectors or engineers. The SigmaCheck ET Conductivity 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 Eddy Current Conductivity Meter is also useful to determine the purity of precious metals (counterfeit detection) such as gold bullion and coins.

DESIGN TO FIT IN YOUR HAND AND A CONVENIENT SIZE AND WEIGHT

The SigmaCheck EC Conductivity Meter 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 ¾ of a pound (350g.) and measuring less than 6 ½” tall x 3 ¼” wide x 1” thick (163 x 80 x 25mm). 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 ET Conductivity Meter 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.
