ETher Victor 2.2D Eddy Current Flaw Detector

ETher Victor 2.2D Eddy Current Flaw Detector

User-friendly, Automated Eddy Current Inspection System

Lightweight, User Friendly & Automated 

The ViCTor 2.2D is a user friendly automated eddy current inspection system designed with the Automation Engineer in mind. Based on the AeroCheck+, NDT Inspectors will become quickly familiar with its user interface and with a variety of case configurations available. The ViCTor 2.2D offers maximum flexibility for each individual application.

Ideally suited to inspection automation for the following reasons:

  • Non-Contact
  • High Speed (potentially up to 200ms)
  • No coupling needed, no effluent produced
  • Ideal for surface defect detection
  • Wide Geometry of probes available
  • Cost effective inspection solution for Bearings, Gudgeon Pins, Cylinder Liners






  • Capable of simultaneous use of two probes, for increased inspection efficiency
  • Separate dual alarms
  • Rotary Drive and Conductivity operating modes on-board
  • Configurable I/O capability using voltage free contacts.
  • Large, bright LCD screen and external VGA for monitor output
  • Powered by 24V for easy industrial control system integration
  • RS-232 & USB remote control for easy control system integration
  • Ability to stream real time data over a USB
  • Dual analogue outputs enable simple recording
  • A DLL is available to permit software integration by the end user.


  • Surface breaking defects
  • Sub-surface defects in non-ferrous materials
  • Heat treatment / material property verification
  • Sensing applications for verifying geometry such as the presence of threads, butt weld detection.

Special Features

  • Guides Feature: Allows the user to display a slide show that can be created easily with commonly used desktop software. Instructions, tutorials and procedures can be added quickly and the NDT inspector can easily switch between the inspection itself and the Guides while performing a live test.
  • Innovative Loop Feature: Captures a live repetitive signal and then adjusts the instrument settings especially Phase, Gain and Filters in order to simplify the task of optimizing the parameters.
  • Data Logging: Real time recording or signal data and replay on instruments & desktop PC, up to 164 seconds
  • Trace Function: Allows a reference waveform to be stored on the screen and appears along the graticule behind the live spot, allowing the operator to readily compare the live data with the reference calibration.
