Olympus has introduced the OmniScan® SX flaw detector for linear zero-degree inspections, such as corrosion mapping and composite inspection, as well as weld inspection using one phased-array group or one time-of-flight diffraction (TOFD) channel.
Two models are available: 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 8.4-in. touchscreen offers a full-screen mode option. The interface provides smooth menu selection, zooming, gate adjustments, cursor movements, and text and value input. It also features setup and calibration wizards, a rapid refresh rate for both the S-scan and A-scan displays, and a fast pulse repetition frequency (PRF).
