Hocking Vector 2D

Dual Frequency Industrial Eddy Current Inspection System

The VECTOR 2D is a single channel dual frequency eddy current instrument with one sensor input. It has a built-in rotary bolthole inspection and electrical conductivity measurement capability. Its test wheels halves flange up or flange down and it also has a dual test mode that allows a complete wheel to be inspected.

The VECTOR 2D is ideal for the automotive and power generation industries, as well as metal manufacturers, tube/pipe manufacturers, and tube inspections.


  • Dual frequency, differential, and absolute modes through a single input
  • Detects defects in many components regardless of shape
    complexity
  • Determines hardness of parts and can trigger accept/reject gates
  • Finds corrosion, erosion, fatigue, and cracks in non-ferrous pipes
  • Results can be seen and interpreted in real time
  • Applicable industries include automotive, power generation, tube/
    pipe manufacture and metal manufacturing
  • Operating Frequency
    Normal: 10 Hz to 10 MHz
    Rotary: 10 kHz to 2 MHz
