General Eddy current, plus Rotary, plus Conductivity, plus Pitch-Catch, “Two instruments in one”.
• The leading features of the best in class Aerocheck+ Eddy Current Flaw Detector combined with excellent Pitch-Catch functionality.
• Pitch-Catch dry coupled bond testing mode allows rapid detection of defects in laminate, bonded and sandwich structures.
• Automatic test frequency optimisation.
• Waveform, time-base and phase / frequency plots.
The EtherCheck is a combined Eddy Current and Bond Testing Flaw Detector. It comes with a rich range of features offered by a best in class eddy current flaw detector combined with the most widely used acoustic bond testing method; Pitch-Catch. All functions are in a single lightweight instrument with a common user interface between the two modes, resulting in simple operator led set up.
The EtherCheck Pitch-Catch probe offers the best in design and durability. Ergonomically designed and manufactured from CNC machined Aluminum with rubber hand grips, the EtherCheck Pitch-Catch probe is both comfortable to use and suitably robust. The transmitter and receiver sensor guide feet can be positioned by the operator to suit the inspection task. The transmit and receive probe tips are interchangeable with rounded and flat tip profiles available. The sensors are positioned close to the edge of the housing to allow inspection in tight areas. The EtherCheck Pitch-Catch Probe offers
Automatic Probe ID by storing its own default settings which can be programmed by the operator.
The EtherCheck offers the dual frequency, the single frequency range of 10Hz to 20MHz, and the dual frequency range of 10Hz -12.8MHz, ensuring a diverse range of real world applications can be met.
Innovative “Loop” Feature: “Loop” is a convenient way of capturing a live repetitive signal and then optimizing the instrument settings especially Phase, Gain and Filters in order to simplify the task of optimizing 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 ETherCheck 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.
