The use of eddy currents for detecting flaws in specimens is of considerable significance in the industrial sector. In this study, a new design of a rotating uniform eddy current (UEC) probe, termed the rotating butterfly probe, is presented. The probe consists of two pairs of excitation coils arranged perpendicular to each other, positioned in two layers, and in a detection coil. The excitation and detection coils were installed the pancake orientation, which provides larger induction and enhances the sensitivity of flaws detection. In addition, to generate a rotating UEC distribution with same amplitude in all directions, the number of turns between first and second layers of the excitation coils and the amplitude of excitation current were arranged. Finite element simulations were conducted to confirm that rotating UEC distribution has the same amplitude in all directions. The experiment with the rotating butterfly probe was then conducted. In the experiment, the measured results with the probe was indicated the self-differential and self-nulling properties. Moreover, the probe was successful in detecting flaws in all directions on an aluminum plate. This attribute can be used for the effective inspection of test pieces.
