DA-400 & A-410 Series Contour Probes

  • IP54
  • Versatility and powerful performance in a lightweight (8.5 lbs.) instrument
  • Constant AC or Half Wave Rectified (DC) with the flip of a switch for the location of surface and some sub-surface defects
  • Apply continuous or residual magnetic fields and demagnetize too
  • Use with dry powder, wet fluorescent or visible
  • High impact-molded housing
  • One-year repair/replacement guarantee
  • Optional Y-400 Yoke Light where shown is available at additional cost
  • The DA-400 Contour Probe is a portable, self-contained instrument designed to produce a magnetic field on or within ferro-magnetic materials.

    The selective AC and DC functions are built into a single reliable instrument. The AC mode produces an intense AC field for detection of surface defects and demagnetizing after inspection. The DC mode produces an intense Half Wave Rectified (DC) field for detection of some subsurface defects.

    Controls and solid-state electronics are contained within the high impact molded housing. Articulating legs allow the AC or DC field to be applied to the precise area of inspection on nearly any part of the surface shape... in the lab, factory or field site.

    Your magnetic particle applications need the versatility and reliable performance advantages of the Parker Contour Probe. An industry standard with 45 years of NDT service.
