The Maxima ML-3500 Series ultraviolet lamps use micro discharge light (MDL) technology, plus a unique filter and bulb/reflector, to deliver up to 10 times the UV-A (365nm) output of conventional HID inspection lamps. With these lamps, NDT inspectors can see surface defects, hydrocarbon contamination and other flaws that escape less powerful lamps. The lamps are available in 120 volts, 230 volts, 240 volts and 100-volt AC versions, as well as battery-operated versions that include a 12-volt, 7 amp/hr rechargeable battery, which will operate the lamp for two hours. A battery charger and carrying case are included.
The Model E2 leak testing instrument has a built-in Micro-Flow sensor (IGLS) and two levels of fill/balance for faster test cycles. The device allows the operator to remotely monitor leak tests over a network, using the E2 Ethernet connection and Leak–Tek program Version 5.0. The unit has a touch screen with graphical color display. The instrument is for use in pressure applications with leak rates from 0.1 cubic centimeter per minute.
The KD-2306 is a noncontact linear displacement measuring instrument based on balanced bridge eddy current technology. It makes high-precision static and dynamic measurements, and supports ambient, moderate temperature and cryogenic rated sensors. Applications range from lab work to production and process automation. The DIN rail mount packaging makes the system ideal for integration into OEM equipment and industrial control applications. The KD-2306 senses both ferrous and non-ferrous metal targets. The RoHS-compliant, CE-marked system includes the electronics, sensor and interconnecting cable. Standard sensing ranges are from 0.02 inch to 2.4 inches, with 0.01% FS resolution or better, and nonlinearity as little as 0.25% FS. More than 30 sensor models are available, including single and dual coil, shielded and unshielded designs.
