EddyView Family

Since 1985, employee-owned UniWest has engineered and manufactured eddy current (EC) testing solutions and instruments with unparalleled flaw detection capabilities for safety-critical and high-performance components in industries around the globe.

The EddyView line of portable EC instruments addresses the practical needs, as well as the financial realities, of the NDT industry. EddyView instruments serve to ensure the physical integrity and performance demands of critical components in industries ranging from service and maintenance providers, to original equipment manufacturers, to aerospace, energy and infrastructure development enterprises.

There are three levels of EddyView (Prime, Pro and Premium). Every model in the EddyView line is built on the same basic signal detection hardware platform and provides the same  outstanding signal to- noise ratio.

Theory

When a coil of conductive wire is excited with an alternating electrical current an alternating magnetic field is produced. The magnetic field oscillates at the same frequency as the excitation source. When placed near a conductive material, currents opposed to the ones in the coil are induced in the material. These are referred to as eddy currents.

In the case of variations in the electrical conductivity and/or magnetic permeability causes a change in eddy current. Additionally, the presence of defects will precipitate a change in phase and amplitude that can be detected as a measurable change in the impedance.  Eddy Current testing is generally used on conductive materials to detect surface defects.

EddyView Prime

Based on the same highly sensitive inspection technology and rugged hardware platform of the UniWest line of eddy current instruments, the Eddy View Prime is outfitted with a basic array of sensing, display and data storage features for precise flaw detection at a very attractive price. The EddyView Prime is the right choice for an all-purpose eddy current instrument designed for the inspector in the field. EddyView Prime features include:

  • Single Frequency Capability
  • X-Y Gain Spread
  • Impedance plane, strip chart displays at the same time
  • Removable SD card for program and test result storage
  • Ethernet connectivity  

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Applications

 

EddyView Pro

The EddyView Pro is a dual-frequency instrument designed with split screen capability for high speed bolt hole scanning. It provides conductivity and non-metallic thickness measurement, and the ability to interface with peripheral devices and automated systems.

Designed to be used by the professional, the EddyView Pro includes all the features of the EddyView Prime, and additional features that allow for both standard eddy current inspection and complex inspections. The EddyView Pro features include capability for automated production testing. Ethernet, RS-232, alarm outputs and high rates of data acquisition adds to the flexibility of the instruments system integration capability. The EddyView Pro is the perfect fit for use in the field, the laboratory, or in production.

EddyView Pro features include:

  • Dual Frequency with mixing
  • Split-screen for both impedance plane and O-scope/sweep modes
  • Digital conductivity measurement
  • Non-conductive lift-off digital measurement
  • Rotating scanner support for high speed bolt hole scanning
  • USB flash drive support

 

EddyView Premium

For the most demanding eddy current testing applications, the EddyView Premium offers unmatched flaw detection and four frequency inspection capability. Designed for premium high end inspections, the Premium can be easily integrated into turnkey systems. Encoder support in addition to built-in strip chart recording capability allow for imaging software interface and ability to store permanent records. The Premium is the right choice for demanding special application inspections in production, but can also be used as a general purpose eddy current instrument for laboratory and in the field.

EddyView Premium features includes:

Quad frequency capability

  • Waterfall display for bolt hole imaging
  • Encoder support
  • Auto name capability
  • Both HP and Epson printer support
  • Special software packages for multiplexing capability (optional)
