Ectane 2

A Proven Success. Made Better.

Over the last decade, Eddyfi Ectane® has become the undisputed reference for heat exchanger tubing inspection and surface eddy current array, all around the globe. Thanks to a compact form-factor and its unmatched robustness, the multi-technology instrument earned a reputation for being best-in-class.

Portability and Autonomy

The Eddyfi Ectane 2 test instrument is approximately 10 L (610 in volume and weighs in at 6.8 kg (15 lb), making it about three times more compact than other legacy test instruments. Ectane 2 is therefore easy to carry beyond being rugged. The instrument is also battery powered with 8 hours of autonomy that eliminate the need for an external power source.

Unlike some fragile systems on the market, Ectane was built for real-life conditions: cold, hot, dusty, humid (or simply wet!), where occasional shocks and drops are meant to happen. Ectane is the tester you can trust.

Built-in Technological Versatility

Non-destructive testing of tubing and surfaces relies on a number of techniques, which often depend on the application and the materials involved. Used the Ectane 2’s built-in capabilities with almost any combination of the listed testing technologies.

Whatever the technology, Ectane 2 can drive it without external boxes or clumsy connections.

Ectane 2 can also drive partial saturation ECT probes and magnetic bias ECT probes with its onboard current source, and RPC probes with its motor drive.


  • Eddy Current Testing (ECT)
  • Eddy Current Array (ECA)
  • Tangential Eddy Current Array (TECA™)
  • Remote-Field Testing (RFT)
  • Near-Field Testing (NFT)
  • Near-Field Array (NFA)
  • Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL)
  • Internal Rotating Inspection System (IRIS) ultrasonic testing


Powerful CPU Board — The Ectane 2’s board (100% Eddyfi) has a faster CPU, which delivers more punch for ultrafast probe nulling and real-time processing. This greatly contributes to making quality inspections with the Ectane 2 easier than ever before with any technology combination, whether it is ECT, ECA, TECA, RFT, NFT, NFA, MFL, or IRIS.

Improved Maximum Frequency — The maximum ECT frequency is now 10 MHz, which offers more flexibility and better performance in a variety of tubing and surface applications.

Current Source for Saturation Probes — Available on the 41-pin connector, this built-in source can be programmed to control the current output that feeds into partial saturation ECT probes and magnetic bias ECT probes.

Motor Drive for RPC Probes — The Ectane 2 is capable of driving motorized rotating pancake coil (RPC) probes, thanks to its powerful built-in motor drive. This is useful in applications where RPC probes are used to find longitudinal and circumferential cracks.

Superior Connectivity

BootP has always proven to be extremely cryptic and notoriously difficult to use. Ectane 2 is designed to be plugged into your network and simply work. There’s no longer any need for BootP, which means you can be up and running in next to no time.

Advanced Data Analysis and Reporting Software

Using Ectane 2 with Magnifi® and TubePro™ makes your tubing data acquisition, analysis, and reporting easier than ever before. The setup and tube list wizard enable you to instantly build and acquire your tube bundle. At the same pace, you can run the assisted data analysis feature to deliver high-quality reports including all the 2D and 3D tube mapping and all the required information.
