ETherCheck

EtherCheck ET/Bond Testing Flaw Detector has been designed for NDE on Aerospace specific applications.

EtherCheck offers the operator a rich range of features combined with the most widely used acoustic bond testing method; Pitch-Catch. A common user interface between the two modes, resulting in simple operator led set up.

The EtherCheck Pitch-Catch Probe is ergonomically designed and manufactured from CNC-machined Aluminium with rubber hand grips, and so is both comfortable to use and robust.

Designed and manufactured in the UK, out instruments a backed by the ETher NDE promise of outstanding customer service and technology that is both reliable and advanced.

Features

Innovative “Loop” Feature

“Loop” is a convenient way of capturing a live repetitive signal and then adjusting the instrument settings especially Phase, Gain and Filters in order to simplify the task of optimising the parameters.

“Guides” Feature

"Guides" allow 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 the inspection can be added to the AeroCheck+ very quickly and the NDT inspector can easily switch between the Inspection itself and the “Guides” while performing a live test.

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.

Operator defined “soft keys”

There are four soft key positions for operator selectable icons for frequently used functions and a fifth position for the last menu function used. Each saved instrument setting can be associated with a unique, one press set of quick access functions. There are also two front panel hard keys that can also be easily programmed for rapid one press access to instrument functions.
