ETher PhaseCheck Eddy Current Flaw Detector

ETher PhaseCheck Eddy Current Flaw Detector

Dual Frequency High Performance Eddy Current Flaw Detector with C-Scan Capability

C-Scan Capabilities in a Handheld Design 

They say “a picture is worth 1000 words”. To date, “pictures” (C-Scan) in Eddy Current have been limited to expensive large laboratory instruments. Now for the first time in a hand held high-end eddy current flaw detector package we add a C-Scan data display capability.

With all the features and performance of the AeroCheck+ Eddy Current Flaw Detector combined with the ability to scan areas and document inspection results using a C-Scan Display. The ETher NDE PhaseCheck can be used with all reflection, bridge and absolute probes from all manufacturers and uses industry standard 12-Way Lemo and Co-axial Lemo 00 connectors, reducing the need to use adapters.



  • C-Scan capability
  • 3-Year Standard Warranty (6-Year Extended Warranty with ETherCover)
  • Dual Frequency
  • Intuitive and easy-to-learn user interface
  • Rotary drive as standard
  • Industry standard probe connectors
