Epstein Tester

Epstein Tester

EP-350 is designed to measure AC magnetic properties of flat rolled magnetic materials at high frequency by using Wattmeter, Ammeter, Voltmeter and Source. Epstein bridge test method is a fundamental method for evaluating the magnetic performance of flat-rolled magnetic materials in either sheared or stress relief annealed condition. This test method is suitable for design, specification acceptance, service evaluation, and research and development.
EP-350 has digital controlled crystal accurate 16 Bit sine wave Generator, which provides 25 Hz to 450 Hz harmonics free non distorted power for testing of specimen. It has in built measuring meter, like Flux Voltmeter, RMS Voltmeter, RMS Ammeter, Peak Ammeter, Wattmeter and Power Factor meter with digital sampling method. These measuring devices are (temper proof) precisely calibrated to achieve high accuracy and long term stability. Accuracy and stability of EP-350 is better than specified in national and international standards. (Reference to ASTM: 343, IEC: 60404-2, BIS: 649)

Fully Automatic Test Method

You can get the complete test report at nine different induction points within few minutes. You only need to insert strips in the bridge and enter the weight, length and density of material in software. EP-350 starts taking result at your defined nine different induction point automatically. For testing at each induction, it sets frequency, flux volt & induction automatically using digital sampling method by micro controller. After competition of testing, software generates report in Excel sheet.

  • The whole product range of Gopal Electronics comes with standard 1 year warranty.
  • For easy warranty claim, you can register your product on our website in case you purchased from any dealer.
  • You can send your instrument by courier to our works for any repairing or calibration service. Your instrument will be inspected first and you will be notified for its repairing or calibration charges. The repairing or calibration process only carried out after the confirmation of customer.
  • The time for repairing or calibration is maximum 48 hours after confirmation.
  • We Ensure your investment secure upto 1 year for any manufacturing defects.

Calibration Service

We provide traceable calibration service according to ISO17025 for all of our product range. Every year you require to calibrate your instruments for your factory certification like ISO, and to maintain quality of your routine test and quality inspection.

Calibration by Gopal Electronics:

  • Our reference meters and standards are traceable to NABL accredited lab or our internal standards as per ISO17025.
  • We have calibration facility of 0.007% (66 ppm) energy accuracy for sinusoidal waveforms.
  • As manufacturer we can change the calibration data and compensate the deviation in each measuring point. So you can get actual calibration not only the comparison report.
  • General Service, replacement of minor parts can be carried out at the same time.
  • Free firmware upgrade is also the part of our calibration process.
  • We can provide calibration at special points which are not included in usual calibration on customer request, like calibration at 0.1 power factor.
  • It takes maximum two days to complete the calibration process after the receipt of your instrument at our factory.
