Eddy Current (ECT) Flaw Detection Equipment and Instruments
for Non Destructive Testing (NDT)
ETher NDE offers an extensive range of Eddy Current (ECT) NDT instruments to cater for a wide variety of industries, applications and operator levels. We pride ourselves of developing innovative and end-user focussed equipment and we are continuously striving to develop our product range.
The ETher NDE handheld family of flaw detectorsincludes the AeroCheck , WeldCheck family and the ETherCheck (EC and Bond Tester), the SteelCheck (Carbon Steel ID Tube Tester) and the PhaseCheck (Eddy Current C-Scan Inspection Unit). Plus the EmbedEC range. Click here for an overview of the range. Download a Short Form Brochure here.
Guides – allows the user to display a slide show that can be created easily with commonly used desktop software. The benefit of this feature is that instructions, tutorials and procedures for an inspection can be added to the instrument very quickly and the NDT inspector can easily switch between the inspection itself and the “Guides” while performing a live test.
Loop - is a convenient way of capturing a short live repetitive signal and then optimizing the instrument settings through real time adjustments of the Phase, Gain, Balance, Filters and Display Configuration in order to simplify the task of optimising the parameters. The “Loop” function is excellent for calibration set up especially for setting the filters for Rotary and Dual Frequency mix.
Trace - The trace function allows a reference waveform to be stored on the screen and appears along with the graticule behind the live spot. This allows the operator to readily compare the live data with the reference calibration.
Protective Boot & Integrated Strap – has enhanced durability through a fully-fitted, custom-designed outer “protective boot” and integral hand-strap for even greater ruggedness and easier grip.
Auto Lift-Off Gain Compensation – Feature to add automatic paint thickness compensation using absolute and bridge mode simultaneously on the weld probe.
Removable Storage – microSD 2GB (500 saved settings, 500 screen shots) microSD 32GB (10,000 saved settings, 10, 000 screen shots).
C-Scan and Motorised Scanner control – The PhaseCheck offers 2 axis incremental encoder input and USB scanner control. This means that C-Scan Images can be recorded and the XY data stored for the image for post-test analysis.
Splash Case - Please note that the splash case for the new WeldCheck2, WeldCheck+, AeroCheck2, AeroCheck+ needs to be AAER004.
Eddy Current Flaw Detector - AeroCheck 2 & AeroCheck+, including Rotary As Standard.
The AeroCheck has been targeted for the exacting needs of the aerospace industry. Common areas on an aircraft that can be inspected with the AeroCheck Series include wheel brakes, wheels and landing gear, fasteners and fastener holes, engine mounts, fuselage, wing surface and hinges, bulkheads, tail plane, door access points, window frames, engine blades and engine discs.
Fully capable of all the common eddy current inspection applications you may encounter on an aircraft including paint thickness, sub-surface and surface crack detection, the AeroCheck is the ideal eddy current instrument for the job.
The AeroCheck Eddy Current Flaw Detector is designed and manufactured in the UK and uses industry standard 12-Way Lemo and Co-axial Lemo 00 connectors, offering rotary drive capabilities as standard and also absolute, bridge and reflection probe modes without the need for adapters.
EC Flaw Detector for Eddy Current NDT Inspection - WeldCheck 2 & WeldCheck+.
Ideal for Offshore and Rope Access!
The WeldCheck Eddy Current (ECT) Flaw Detector range appeals to users within a wide range of industries including Rail, Automotive, Offshore and Rope Access for a broad scope of non destructive testing (NDT) applications.
The WeldCheck EC Flaw Detector is lightweight, compact and housed in tough aluminium alloy Mg Si 0.5 powder-coated outer case and has been designed with the end user in mind.
Designed and manufactured in the UK, by the ETher NDE team, the WeldCheck instruments are fitted with industry standard 12-Way Lemo and Co-axial Lemo 00 connectors; and is able to use absolute, bridge and reflection probes without the need for adaptors.
The WeldCheck ET Flaw Detector offers a crisp, clear daylight viewable screen, user friendly interface and menu systems.
The ETi-200 offers advanced multi-frequency and multi-channel Eddy Current (ET) flaw detection and is housed in the smallest portable Eddy Current (EC) package on the market.
Appealing to all sectors within NDT, the ETi-200 allows the operator to programme not only frequency, but many other advanced functions.
The ETi-200 excels in terms of technology and has been built with a cast aluminium chassis overlaid with rubber over-moulding meeting IP54 standards, the ETi-200 is built to withstand the harshest of conditions, whilst weighing just 2.8kg (6.2lbs). Ergonimcally designed with
the end user in mind there are adjusabtle hand straps and harness points for easy on-site working.
VEESCAN Eddy Current (ECT) Wheel Inspection Systems
The VEESCAN is ETher's first wheel inspection system and is available in two different models, VEESCAN H for maximum flexibility and VEESCAN R for optimised productivity.
The VEESCAN has a proven mechanical design and established record of breakdown-free operation for 365 days or more.
The VEESCAN is able to be configured with a wide choice of probes and allows any wheel testing facility the flexibility to select the system most compatible with their workload. With a full choice of operation modes, the VEESCAN maximises the probability of detection.The VEESCAN is offered with the ETher NDE guarantee of complete client satisfaction and excellent technical support.
