Non-destructive testing, especially of safety relevant components plays an increasing role in modern times. A portable version of a motion induced eddy current testing (MECT) system is introduced in this study. Measurements with different specimen and different defects are performed to prove the system’s ability for defect detection in electrically conducting materials. Additional studies on the alignment angle and the rotational velocity help to understand the functional principle of the portable MECT system.
