DA-1500 Heavy Duty High Amp Portable Magnetic Inspection Unit

The Parker Research DA-1500 portable heavy duty magnetic inspection unit provides high output AC or HWDC fields for magnetic particle inspection. Field selection is determined by using the appropriate field cable connector. Current output is infinitely variable from zero to maximum by use of the current control located on the front panel, and is indicated by the panel meter. Actual current output is determined by cable size and length.

AC magnetic fields offer the best sensitivity for detection of surface defect indications. The AC field is also beneficial for demagnetizing after inspection.

1500 AMP OUTPUT: Operates from either 230 VAC or 460 VAC, 1P (must be specified.) Half-Wave DC magnetic fields provide for the detection of certain subsurface defect indications. DC fields penetrate a cross section of the test area rather than just the surface. Optional magnetizing cables can be equipped with prods for circular magnetization.

Half-Wave DC magnetic fields provide for the detection of certain subsurface defect indications. DC fields penetrate a cross section of the test area rather than just the surface. Optional magnetizing cables can be equipped with prods for circular magnetization. The cables can be wrapped around parts to form a coil for longitudinal magnetization. Demagnetization is accomplished in a similar manner.
