Title: Modified eddy current probe for low conductivity surfaces

Abstract

A modified eddy current (MEC) probe includes a probe body having a bore formed therein. A printed circuit board (PCB) assembly includes a circuit board defining a plane, has a plurality of electronic components mounted thereon, and is configured for mounting within the bore of the probe body. A coil board assembly is electrically connected to the PCB assembly and comprises a coil board defining a plane, a transmitter coil formed on a first side of the coil board, and a sensor coil formed on second side of the coil board. The plane of the coil board is arranged orthogonally to the plane of the circuit board.
