Product Information

Key Features and Benefits

Rugged and Portable – All Aluminum Alloy

NextSpot 600 is constructed with an all aluminum alloy shell with 360° shielding. It adopts a one-piece aluminum alloy with rubber coating that makes it rugged, lightweight, and compact. The unit is also weather protected and stress tested so that It can operate from -10°C ~ 50°C. Weighing at only 3 kg, NextSpot 600 is both portable and reliable, especially for conducting field testing.

Long Battery Life – ARM Technology

NextSpot 600 uses the ARM processor, which know for energy efficient, and along with a fanless design, a fully charged unit can perform 12 hours of normal operation, and requires only 3 hours for a complete recharge.

Exceptional Visual Interface – 10.4 inches Full Touch Screen with XGA Wide-angle View

Testing in the field are often conducted in harsh environments where visibility may be poor and requires having to wear gloves. The NextSpot 600’s 10.4 inch full touchscreen with XGA wide-angle viewing help address these common issues all while giving you the most accurate visual results and feedback.

Accurate Measurement – 64 Channels, 1MHz-25MHz Bandwidth, 400 Mhz/12 bits DSP

By adopting a parallel 64 channel design, 1MHz-25 MHz analog bandwidth, and 12 bits DSP, it gives NextSpot 600 the most accurate measurement of welding nuggets and indentations. Furthermore, the results are all visual and can be immediately determined whether the results are passed or failed.

Real-time Imaging and Other Testing Methods

NextSpot 600 can provide A/C – scan and real-time display on spot weld. NextSpot 600 can support single element probe testing, PA imaging testing as well as various nonultrasonic methods, data capture, chisel inspection, visual inspection, and many more.

Powerful, Flexible, yet Easy-To-Use Software

At the heart of the device is our NextSoft Analyser user interface that we build from the ground up. Built on top of the Linux OS platform, it provides a safe, reliable and stable platform for our software system. Boasting a 10 seconds startup time, it can be quickly and easily setup to perform real-time image scanning on spot welds.
