All ECHO 9 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 to Echo to ignore CoatingsUT thickness gage Danatronics ECHO Echo to Echo to ignore Coatings

Comes Standard on all ECHO 9 Color models  This option allows for the coating or paint thickness to be ignored. The coating thickness or paint does not add any structural integrity to the base material. 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. In addition it is expensive and time consuming to grind out the coating thickness and to re-apply a coating.

 

B-ScanUT thickness gage Danatronics ECHO 09 B-Scan

Comes standard on the ECHO-09DL and ECHO-09DLW 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-ScanUT thickness gage Danatronics ECHO 09 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.

DataloggerUT thickness gage Danatronics ECHO 09 Datalogger

Comes standard with the ECHO 9DL and ECHO 9DLW The ECHO 9 Datalogger stores millions of readings to its removable sd card 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. Our Datalogger also interfaces with Ultrapipe. Please contact Danatronics for more details.

 

Live WaveformUT thickness gage Danatronics ECHO 09 Live Waveform

Comes standard with the ECHO 9W and ECHO 9DLW 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 ECHO 9DLW 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 ECHO 9 series

EZ Scan 4 - Magnetic Wheel EncoderUT thickness gage Danatronics ECHO 09 EZ Scan 4 - Magnetic Wheel Encoder

Danatronics EZ Scan 4 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.

 

 

Spring Loaded HolderUT thickness gage Danatronics ECHO 09 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.
