All ECHO series 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 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 ECHO 8 series are:
B-Scan Comes standard on the ECHO-8DL and ECHO-8DLW
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 A-scan and B-scan can now be view at the same time. The operator can scroll where the cursor line is after a B-scan is generated.
Encoded B-Scan Software comes standard with the ECHO 9DL and ECHO 9DLW, encoder and hardware upgrades sold separately
Requires hardware modification to either ECHO 9DLW or ECHO 9DL, uses EZ Scan 4 as a magnetic wheel, linear axis encoder.
The EZ Scan 4 combined with our ECHO 9DLW is the ultimate in easy to use, affordable magnetic wheel linear axis encoder for B-scan surveys with reports. The EZ Scan 4 sends a pulse to the gage to take a thickness reading while drawing the B-scan image based on one axis. The gage keeps track of the distance traveled (DT) so you can cross reference any wall thinning areas to the image displayed and saved into memory. To show A-scans and B-scans on the computer, you must purchase separately our Data XL Pro.
Datalogger Comes standard with the ECHO 8DL and ECHO 8DLW
The ECHO 8 Datalogger stores millions of readings in itâ€™s Datalogger with removable sd card memory as linear, 2D, 3D or boiler in alpha numeric or thousands of 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.
Live Waveform Comes standard with the ECHO 8W and ECHO 8DLW
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.
When equipped with the oxide scale option and 20mhz delay line transducer, both ECHO 7DLW and ECHO 8DLW units with live waveform can measure the oxide scale (0.015"-0.040") and tube thickness calibrated to their independent sound speeds.
The following accessories are available for the ECHO 8 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. The probe can be rotated as well and the fixture has v-notches to assist in probe alignment.
Custom 4 point chest harness with comfortable adjustment of straps for shoulder and waste line. Comes with metal detents
Magnetic Pipe Holder
Available magnetic pipe holder that screws onto the Â¼, 20 connector on the ECHO 9. This is ideal to stabilizing the ECHO 9 on a larger pipe or any magnetic surface and can even be used up side down.
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)
We offer a custom protective rubber booth with built in bail, 4 point chest harness and unique 2 finger hold strap.
Standard 3.7 V Li Ion internally rechargeable battery comes standardor optional alkaline tray for 3 AA batteries

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.
ECHO 7 series comes with a convenient AC charger via the USB port so you do not have to replace the batteries on a regular basis.
With this hardware option the operator can use a footswitch to save, freeze or send readings.
ECHO 8 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. ECHO 8 also uses contact and delay line probes from 1-20 Mhz. Consult Danatronics or one of our authorized representative for the proper use and recommendation for your application.
