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.  

Features:


  • 3.5” sunlight readable display with color pallet
  • Change color and vibrate on alarm
  • 2 independent gates
  • DAC
  • AWS
  • API-5UE
  • Peak Memory
  • 2 gb expandable to 32gb of micro sd card memory
  • Datalogger including b-scan and export of reading to excel
  • 13 hour battery life
  • Custom rubber boot with padded wrist strap and bail
  • Made and designed in USA

Corrosion Software

Included with ECHO 9FD and ECHO 8FD 
When corrosion software is added to the ECHO FD it becomes both a corrosion thickness gage as well as a flaw detector.   The corrosion portion of the software for ECHO 9FD is equivalent to the ECHO 9DLW


Pipe curvature correction
Corrects for sound path calculations based on angle and pipe material and diameter.​

Live Waveform
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.​

The Field upgradeable options for the ECHO FD are: 

All ECHO FD Software 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

ECHO 8

The ECHO 8FD includes both the ECHO FD software as well ask the ECHO 8DLW software giving it the ability to complete standard corrosion and precision applications as well as flaw detection. Hand-Held Digital Ultrasonic FLAW DETECTOR with CORROSION AND PRECISION modes including: 2 independent gates, DAC, AWS software,  Datalogger with B-Scan, Rubber Boot with built in stand with  hand strap and Chest harness, 2GB microSD card, AC adapter, USB, cable plastic carrying case, couplant, CD manual, and Data XL interface program to export saved readings to p.c. (Microsoft Excel), ASNT-TC1A, calibration certificate

Typical Applications:​​

  • Boiler Tubes
  • Pressure Vessels
  • Storage Tanks
  • Ship Hulls
  • Pipes

Precision software

Included with ECHO 7FD and ECHO 8FD 
When precision software is added to the ECHO FD it becomes both a precision thickness gage as well as a flaw detector.   The precision portion of the software for ECHO 7FD is equivalent to the ECHO 7DLW.  


Waveform template overlay
Conveniently allows operator to compare a sample or “good” waveform to a live waveform.​

Angle Beam
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.​
