    The Gould-Bass 1500 Magne-Tech Portable MPI Unit provides a reliable way to detect surface and near surface discontinuities in its longitudinal and circular modes. The 1500 Magne-Tech model is perfect for applications involving railroads, pipelines, aircraft, and anywhere ferrous metals need to be inspected for cracks. This portable MPI unit is user-oriented, with all controls and indicators on the front panel for easy access. This Unit features an advanced modular design with thermal overload protection, infinity variable current control, and a remote control for increased access in spaces with limited access.

    An easy-read ammeter shows whether the magnetizing current is in AC or half-wave DC mode. The DC mode has an increased magnetic field penetration for detecting near-surface defects, and the AC minimizes background interference for high sensitivity for detecting surface defects with speed and accuracy. The 1500 Magne-Tech Portable MPI Unit meets military and industrial specifications, along with ASTM E1444 & E-709 ASME Section III and Navships 250-1500 Mil-STD-271 standards.
