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.

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 the Echo FD being field upgradeable are:
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
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.
Pipe curvature correction
Corrects for sound path calculations based on angle and pipe material and diameter.
Waveform template overlay
Conveniently allows operator to compare a sample or “good” waveform to a live waveform.
Floating Gate - Adjusts to -6 or -12 db for consistent edge depth thickness readings
The following accessories are available for the ECHO FD 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 ¼, 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.
Also with the ¼, 20 connector on the back of the Echo FD will connect to various camera accessories, such as a gorilla pod for holding the unit in a particular place
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 standard with Echo FD or a optional alkaline tray for 3 AA batteries is available
ECHO Transport Case
The EHC-09 Transport Case is shown with common inclusions.
(Spare batteries and 5 step test block sold separately).
