ETher Victor 2.2D Eddy Current Flaw Detector

User-friendly, Automated Eddy Current Inspection System

ETher ViCTor 2.2D Automated Eddy Current Flaw Detector


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.


  • Non-contacting
  • High Speed (potentially up to 200MS)
  • No couplant required or effluent produced
  • Good for surface defect detection
  • Instant coupling
  • Wide variety and geometry of probes available
  • Cost effective and ideal for rotationally symmetrical components e.g. bearings, gugdeon pins, cylinder liners, etc.


  • Capable of using two probes simultaneously for more efficient inspection.
  • Separate dual alarms.
  • Large bright LCD screen and external VGA for monitor output.
  • Includes rotary drive and conductivity
  • Configurable I/O capability using voltage free contacts.
  • Dual analogue outputs giving simple recording
  • Powered by 24V DC for easy integration in an industrial control system.
  • USB or RS-232 remote control for easy control system integration
  • Ability to stream real time data over USB
  • 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.
