Ether NDE are proud to release the new AeroCheck 3


May 2024

The new AeroCheck 3 delivers advanced NDT inspection features “at the turn of a wheel”.

Based on operator feedback and embracing the use of new materials, the AeroCheck 3 delivers to the end-user enhanced ruggedness, a toughened screen, improved connector access and performance, IP68 “top-face” connectors access, combined with optional features such as an encoder wheel. The AeroCheck 3 upholds the heritage of the established AeroCheck Series and delivers the best in Eddy Current performance, with rotary inspection capabilities as standard, together with variety of advanced features.

The on-board software has not been left out, with an overhaul of colour schemes and new icons delivering an improved user interface, now navigable at lightning speed with thumb-wheel navigation as an option.  Advanced features such as Conductivity Measurement, Auto-Mix, Loop, Guides and Trace are on-board together with an outstanding single and dual frequency range of 10Hz- 20MHz, ensuring a diverse range of real world applications can be met.

In addition to the use of new materials in the blended two polymer casing, resulting in a lightweight instrument of 1.15kg and delivering great resistance to oil, UV light and impact;  further physical upgrades to the AeroCheck 3 body have also part of the redesign.  Upgraded connectors are now rated at IP68 and the whole panel has been relocated to the top of the instrument for easy access and straightforward probe and card changes. A new addition is a built-in camera mount, with an optional VESA tripod mount plate, now ideal ensuring stability or minimising contact with hazardous surfaces, improving visibility for the operator.

With over 7 hours battery life, and fast charging times of 2.5 hours the AeroCheck 3 has now evolved into a leading “site-ready”  NDT inspection partner, developed specifically for the Aerospace industry’s NDE application and maintenance challenges.

John Hansen, Managing Director of ETher NDE, said “ The introduction of the AeroCheck 3 embodies extensive feedback from Eddy Current NDE Professionals and we have distilled the core desired features and demands of our customer and operator base into the physical and Eddy Current performance of the new AeroCheck 3. We are very confident that this latest developmental process has resulted in the AeroCheck 3 being the most powerful, yet simple to use, hand-held Eddy Current Instrument the industry has ever seen”.
