The TSC-type devices are manufactured serially. By the operation principle they are specialized multi-channel flux-gate magnetometers. The Н magnetic field intensity is calibrated on instruments' scales in A/m (Ampere/meter). The length of the recorded sensor movement is calibrated in mm (millimeters).

The TSC-type devices are unique means of measurement although there are a lot of various gages of magnetic field intensity (magnetometers) based on flux-gate transducers in Russia and abroad. Their uniqueness is both in their functional designation (detection of stress concentration zones, which are the main sources of equipment damaging) and in their structural specific features, marking them out significantly among the known magnetometers.

The distinctive features of TSC-type devices are:

  • Multi-channel operation
  • Scanning devices (20 types) allowing reading the values of field intensity and sensor movement length at a speed up to 0,5 m/s (all scanning devices are protected by Russian and International patents)
  • Software for automatic processing of results directly on test objects
  • Flash-memory for recording the results of object inspection and possibility to transfer the data to computers
  • Possibility to record inspection parameters with a specified frequency at a time unit ("timer" mode), which allows to execute inspection at products movement relative to sensors (inspection of rotating elements, moving ropes and cables, inspection of rails at flaw detector car movement, etc.)
  • "MMM-System" software for computer processing of inspection results in Windows 7/8/10

The TSC-4M-16 device has the following structural and functional distinctive features:

  • From 2 to 16 flux-gate transducers
  • Microprocessor 16 bit
  • RAM 1 Mb
  • 32 Mb flash-memory for recording of inspection results on object during 10-15 days without transferring the data to the computer
  • Special keyboard (45 keys) with complete set of figures and letters (Russian and English) allowing not only to control the inspection process but also to make the necessary records and comments to the instrument memory
  • Large electroluminescent display with resolution of 320x240 pixels allowing data processing by methods in many cases without using the computer
  • Extended functions of the data processing program on the instrument (display of circular magnetogram, the magnetic field isolines characterizing strain distribution on the test object)
  • Can be used for products inspection both in plant (stationary) and in field conditions
  • Dimensions 290x205x55 mm
  • Weight including storage batteries 2 kg
  • Power supply from eight built-in storage batteries DC 15V
