Flaw Detectors
ECHO FD

ECHO FD

 ECHO FD is available in 4 models including a base flaw detection model as well as models that include corrosion and precision thickness gaging software.

 ECHO FD is our portable ultrasonic flaw detector in the same field-proven case as our popular ECHO series. Our ECHO FD represents a breakthrough in terms of cost, size and ease of use for your everyday flaw detector. ECHO FD can even toggle from a flaw detector, corrosion or precision thickness gage making it the smallest and most affordable unit in the world to offer such a vast application set. Our new hand-held ultrasonic flaw detector is packed with many useful and practical features including:

ECHO Software Options are easy and convenient to upgrade in the field.   Danatronics gage upgrades are done directly from your gage's keypad and do not require the use of a computer.

The following are available upgrades for the ECHO FD

Bluetooth
Available as an optional upgrade for all ECHO series gages. The bluetooth software option also requires internal hardware modification on the PCB (does not affect other specs, IP rating or require additional power source).

Allows ECHO gages to export data such as thickness readings or files to another device via internal bluetooth. DataXL mobile can be used to facilitate the transfer of information on IOS and Andriod phones and tablets. DataXL Mobile is coming soon in the Apple store and Google Play Store.

 The following accessories are available for the ECHO FD series

EZ Scan 6 - Magnetic Wheel Encoder
Danatronics EZ Scan 6 encoder is a 1 axis encoder that keeps track of the transducer movement as it relates to the B-scan image. The ECHO 9 must contain the Datalogger Software for the B-scan to appear. This feature requires a hardware change to allow for the lemo encoder jack on the top of the gage.
