UniWest has introduced its EddyView II portable eddy current flaw detector.
The scanner, which was launched at last month’s ASNT Annual 2022 conference features a large 8-in touch screen display with gesture adjustments for key parameters such as gain and rotation, the ability to drive conventional probes or array probes, an independent channel that monitors probe to part coupling (liftoff), and UniWest’s signal performance with extremely low signal-to-noise.
The EddyView II also includes multi-frequency probe drive and signal mixing, digital conductivity & non-conductive coating thickness, and compatibility with UniWest’s ECS-1S & JF-15 rotating bolt hole scanners. In addition, the EddyView II can be connected to the internet for remote diagnostics and calibration, as well as export raw eddy current data for post-processing flexibility.
While using the EddyView II in demanding and often dirty NDT environments, its rugged housing is designed to meet the standards of Ingress Protection (IP) rating IP-65.
Kurt Oldson, UniWest’s President, said, “The EddyView II has been designed with customer feedback in mind, featuring new and innovative technological advancements, but one primary request kept standing out: Don’t lose the low-noise signal path that has helped define UniWest products. We took that customer input very seriously, and our engineering team delivered!”
Designed for use by NDT professionals, the EddyView II includes features and functionality to allow both standard eddy current measurements and complex inspections, including the use of eddy current array (ECA) probes of up to 32 elements as well as large-scale automated and robotic production applications.
System features include multi-frequency with mixing, split-screen for both impedance plane and O-scope/sweep modes, digital conductivity measurement, non-conductive liftoff digital measurement, rotating scanner support for high-speed bolt hole scanning, Ethernet connectivity, alarm outputs, and USB flash drive support. Ideal for field, laboratory, or production settings, the EddyView II’s fast data acquisition rate facilitates smooth system integration.
