BondMaster 600 Multimode Bond Tester

High Performance through Intuitive Operation

The BondMaster® 600 delivers a powerful combination of multiple mode bond testing software and highly advanced digital electronics, providing consistently crisp and high-quality signals. Whether you are inspecting honeycomb composite, metal-to-metal bonds, or laminate composite, the BondMaster 600 offers exceptional ease-of-use thanks to its direct-access keys and streamlined interface that features convenient presets for common applications. The enhanced user interface and simplified workflow of the BondMaster 600 offers archiving and reporting that are accessible to any level of user.

The resolution and brightness of the 5.7-inch VGA screen on the BondMaster 600 handheld bond tester becomes even more apparent when switched into full-screen mode. Activated by the simple touch of a key, the full-screen mode is always accessible regardless of the display mode or inspection method you are using. The BondMaster 600 bond tester is programmed for a range of standard inspection methods, including pitch-catch RF, pitch-catch impulse, pitch-catch swept, resonance, as well as a notably improved mechanical impedance analysis (MIA) method.

Portable, Lightweight, and Ergonomic

The ergonomic design of the BondMaster 600 is convenient for difficult-to-access inspection locations. For inspection in tight spaces, the factory-installed hand strap provides maximum comfort while maintaining access to the most critical functions.

Field Proven

The BondMaster 600’s case, based on a rugged, field-proven design, is world-renowned for withstanding the harshest, most demanding inspection conditions. The BondMaster 600 with its long battery life, airtight and water-resistant enclosure, high-friction bumpers, and dual-duty support stand/hook is a valuable tool for challenging inspection jobs.

Two Models for Flexibility and Compatibility

The BondMaster 600 is offered in two models to accommodate the varying needs of composite bond testing. The basic model includes all pitch-catch capabilities, while the B600M model features all bond testing inspection methods. The upgrade from basic to multimode can also be performed remotely.

Both BondMaster 600 models are compatible with existing Olympus BondMaster probes, including those equipped with the PowerLink technology. Optional adaptor cables are available to enable compatibility with probes from other manufacturers.
