Olympus NDT recently debuted the OmniScan SX, the newest member of the OmniScan® family of flaw detectors. It features an easy-to-read 8.4-inch touch screen for displaying its streamlined and user-friendly software interface. The single group OmniScan SX provides a cost-effective solution for linear zero-degree inspections, such as composite inspection and corrosion mapping, as well as weld inspection using one phased array group or one time-of-flight diffraction (TOFD) channel. Compared to its successful predecessor, the OmniScan MX2, the OmniScan SX is 33-percent lighter and 50-percent smaller — offering an unprecedented level of portability for an OmniScan.
The OmniScan SX comes in two models: the SX PA and SX UT. The SX PA is a 16:64PR phased array unit, which, like the UT-only SX UT, is equipped with a conventional UT channel for pulse-echo, pitch-catch or TOFD inspection techniques.
The OmniScan SX touch screen offers a full-screen mode option that maximizes visibility, essentially converting many menu functions into easy touch screen operations. The intuitive interface provides smooth menu selection, zooming, gate adjustments, cursor movements and text and value input. These — along with other premium integrated features like easy-to-follow setup and calibration wizards, a rapid refresh rate for both the S-scan and A-scan displays and a fast pulse repetition frequency (PRF) — make the OmniScan SX a highly efficient inspection tool.
The OmniScan SX is fully compatible with the extensive portfolio of Olympus scanners, probes and accessories, as well as with its dedicated software companions, NDT SetupBuilder and OmniPC. Combined, the complete family of software and hardware contributes to a streamlined and efficient inspection workflow from design and setup to acquisition and analysis.
Comprehensive collection of rental inventory
Olympus NDT offers an extensive inventory of rental equipment that includes flaw detectors, videoscopes, thickness gages, high-speed video cameras and X-ray fluorescence analyzers. Among the products available for rent are the OmniScan MX phased array flaw detector, the EPOCH series ultrasonic flaw detectors, the IPLEX LX videoscopes, the i-Speed 3 video camera, the 38DL PLUS thickness gage and the DELTA XRF analyzers.
Renting testing equipment directly from the manufacturer provides many benefits to customers. They can be guaranteed to receive the newest equipment loaded with the latest software for their application. They can also rent the instrument they are familiar with and avoid the learning curve of an unknown instrument. Customers can be assured the rental they receive is in the best possible condition and tested by the experts before being delivered.
Olympus NDT offers attractive rental rates and programs with a cost-effective rental credit option toward future instrument purchase. Rentals can be as long as many months or as short as a day. Renting instruments is an ideal alternative to purchasing in peak-load inspection times, in a special application requiring special features for a limited time or in emergency situations.
