    ibg's eddyliner® C is a digital eddy current tester for one channel nondestructive testing for cracks, pores and grinder burn per the Preventive Multi-Filter Technology (PMFT). Testing of metal components, including mass-produced parts and semi-finished products, is now available with simultaneous 100% inline detection of grinder burn and cracks in production lines. The eddyliner® C's method of auto-generating 360° tolerance zones while testing over 30 simultaneous band passes and ibg's unique good-part-referencing, you will be able to find defects that conventional instruments with defect-oriented calibration will miss.

    Compact Design

    The eddyliner® C features a compact design and focuses on one channel crack and grinder burn detection with one probe. Its touchscreen interface is intuitive, easy-to-use and functions and test results are prominently displayed. The measuring signal is digitally processed with unique processors immediately after the pre-amplifier, providing the most stable test results possible.

    Compatible Across All ibg Probes and Rotating Heads 

    The eddyliner® C is compatible with all probes and rotating head from the ibg family of instruments. The eddyliner® is recommended for new testing applications as well as for upgrading installations with the latest eddy current technology.

    Advanced Crack and Grinder Burn Detection

    ibg's Preventive Multi-Filter Technology (PMFT) with automatic tolerance zone creation, simplifies the inspection process for crack, pore and grinder burn detection. This process eliminates the need for experts to perform sophisticated and time-consuming manual procedures. 

    While calibrating with PMFT, good parts surface areas are scanned, and the eddy current variations are recorded simultaneously in each of 30 band pass filters. 360-degree tolerance zones are auto-generated within each filter band, capturing the allowable "noise" from good parts including such characteristics as edge effects, hardness profile run out, eccentricity, etc. This process dramatically reduces pseudo rejects while retaining visibility to actual flawed parts. 

    Ready to Test in Minutes

    You can calibrate the eddyliner C with ibg's "good-part-only-concept" that enables you to set up in minutes. As soon as you test a sample of good parts and they are recorded as reference parts, you can begin operations. After logging material data, with one key press, you can switch to PMFT and start testing.



    A variety of crack detection probes are available with different scan width, sensitivity, and design. Customized models for special applications are designed and manufactured in-house. Our compact and precision rotating heads eddyscan H and eddyscan F, operated with our eddyliner, can be the solution for cycle time optimized crack tests. Monitoring of probe cable break guarantees maximum reliability for continuous operation.

    Lift-Off Compensation

    The eccentricity of a workpiece can be offset electronically thanks to lift-off compensation. This function requires special lift-off compensation probes.


    The ibg multi-colored histogram displays the test results of all reference data, the latest 100 bad parts and up to 1,000 good parts at a glance. They can be evaluated later, an essential function when reference

    parts are first recorded and then cross-checked in the laboratory. If it turns out that some assumed NOK parts need to be added to the reference parts it is just a matter of one keystroke.


    The suspend function enables areas on components such as holes not to be tested.

    Part Types

    50 part types with all settings and reference data can be stored in the device memory and switched manually or via PLC for automated processes.


    Test results are shown as bar graphs, xy-diagram with tolerance zones, x(t) and y(t) or three-dimensional C-scan, selectable. The C-scan (or cascade diagram) provides a planar display of a cylindrical surface to enable visualization of defect position and length.

    Frequency Range

    The carrier frequency is selectable within a range of 3 kHz and 10 MHz in 21 steps. The filter frequencies of the 30 bandpass filters are spread in the range 6 Hz – 5 kHz.

    Data Storage

    Test results, part types and device settings are stored internally on a flash memory and externally on a USB stick. Test results may additionally be logged via Ethernet. A ring buffer logfile records all actions and allows fast debugging for service purposes.

    Activating Test

    Start of test manually at the touchscreen, via PLC or an optional start button.

    Automation without PLC

    Direct control of sorting devices, paint marking systems or indicating lamps is possible with the integrated 24 V DC (2.5 A) power supply, providing a low-cost solution for small automated systems without an additional PLC

    Remote Control

    The eddyliner is remotely operable by every network computer via VNC viewer software.

    Access Protection

    The instrument provides a multilevel access authorization concept that operates by pin code.

    Help Function

    The user always has access to a context-sensitive help function on the device screen which often renders a look into the manual unnecessary.


    Included are: German, English, Spanish, French, Italian, Czech, Polish, Portuguese, Chinese, Hungarian, Japanese, Korean and Russian. Other languages are available as an option.
