Software Options

09 Color Options Tab…All these options are field upgradeable via the keypad. Danatronics offers a unique and convenient way to upgrade your gages. The upgrades are done directly from your gage’s and do not require the use of a computer. The advantages of field upgradability are:
  • Never worry about downtime
  • No extra shipping cost
  • Less cost of ownership due to less freight and duty
  • No need to worry about the product being obsolete
  • Simple and Fast to perform
The Field upgradeable options for the EHC-09 Color Wave series are:
Echo to Echo to ignore Coatings
Comes Standard on all EHC-09 Color models

This option allows for the coating or paint thickness to be ignored. The coating thickness or paint does not make the substrate material any stronger. Without the ability to subtract the paint, the normal measurement would introduce an error of 2 to 2.5 times the thickness of the paint, which represents the sound speed difference from Paint to Steel. 
Comes standard on the EHC-09DLC and EHC-09DLCW

This option is only available combined with the Datalogger option. Provides a non-encoded (time base) or a cross section (side view) of the part being inspected. The image above shows the side view of a step block. The operator can scroll where the cursor line is after a B-scan is generated to get the thickness value as that point (.100”) shown above.
Comes standard with the EHC-09DLC and EHC-09DLCW

The EHC-09 Datalogger stores up to 100,000 readings in it’s internal Datalogger as linear, 2D, 3D or boiler in alpha numeric or 2600 waveforms (if gage is equipped with waveform option). Thickness values along with the i.d. information and all gage set up parameters are exported to Microsoft excel via the no-charged, included Data XL interface program provided with every Danatronics thickness gage. Our Datalogger also interfaces with Ultrapipe. Please contact Danatronics for more details. (Datalgger: included with all DL gages, also available as an add on for all EHC-09 series).
Live Waveform
Comes standard with the EHC-09CW and EHC-09DLCW

The live waveform (A-scan) is used to verify reading stability. With the live waveform the operator can adjust gain, range, rectification and 2 forms of blanking to set the gage to ignore unwanted noise or mode converted echoes.
Angle Beam
Sold as a separate software option for our EHC-09DLCW

Displays trig functions for angular distance, surface and depth. Can use 2.25MHz, or 5 Mhz, in angles from 30-80 degrees. NOT TO BE USED AS A FLAW DETECTOR due to limited scan speed and vertical linearity requirements of most flaw detectors.


The following accessories are available for the EHC-09 series

Spring Loaded Holder
The spring loaded holder (SPH-718) is the ideal fixture to be used on small diameter applications such as tubing to prevent the probe from rocking. Shown above is the SPH-718 with the DK718 transducer inside. The probe can be rotated as well and the fixture has v-notches to assist in probe alignment.
5 Step Test Block
We offer a 5 step test block, made of carbon steel with nickel plating engraved in both English and Metric values from .100’, .200”, .300”, .400”, .500” or 2.54mm, 5.05mm, 7.5mm, 10.0mm, 12.7mm (No certification is provided with these blocks but can be provide on special order for an additional fee)
Protective Pouch
We offer a custom protective pouch Part Number PP-09 for the EHC-09 Series.
EHC-09 Transport Case
The EHC-09 Transport Case is shown with common inclusions. (Spare batteries and 5 step test block sold separately).
Dual and single cables offered in 6 feet or other lengths upon special order. Shown left to right: DLM-06, DLM-06ACMP, LM-06
This Dual lemo to microdot adapter is required when using a delay line or pencil probe with our EHC-09 series.
We offer a variety of ultrasonic couplants from a standard gel in 2 Oz. or 12 Oz. options, to high temperature up to 1100 Degrees F. Contact us for more details.
With this hardware option the operator can use a footswitch to save, freeze or send readings.
AC Power
With this hardware upgrade, the EHC-09 can be used with AC Power (please note, this is not a re-charging system). In other words, with this option, the EHC-09 can be either used with AC or battery mode.


EHC-09 Transducers
Danatronics offers a wide variety of dual transducers from .5-10 Mhz , high temperature duals and delay lines including pencil probes (12 Mhz.) for special applications. Consult Danatronics or one of our authorized representative for the proper use and recommendation for your application.

For complete list including specifications please see our transducer chart
High Temperature
The DHT-537 high temperature dual (up to 950F intermittent use) shown with optional Bell Housing and available armored Dual Lemo to Microdoct 6’ cable with molded plug (DLM-09ACMP)
Spring Loaded Holder
Available for DK718 and DK718EE

Danatronics Spring Loaded Holder has dual v-notches for small diameter pipes and tubes to prevent probe “rocking”
