ISO 15548-1:2008 identifies the functional characteristics of a general-purpose eddy current instrument and provides methods for their measurement and verification.
The evaluation of these characteristics permits a well-defined description and comparability of eddy current equipment.
By careful choice of the characteristics, a consistent and effective eddy current examination system can be designed for a specific application.
Where accessories are used, these are characterised using the principles of ISO 15548-1:2008.
ISO 15548-1:2008 gives neither the extent of verification nor acceptance criteria for the characteristics. They are given in the application documents.
