Olympus Introduces the New Advanced Omniscan MX2 Phased Array Flaw Detector
Press release date: May 2, 2011
Olympus NDT, a pioneer in industrial ultrasound phased array instrumentation, is pleased to introduce the newest version of the OmniScan Series flaw detectors, the OmniScan MX2. This phased array flaw detector features an entirely new design with a large, bright 10.4 inch LCD touch screen that provides simple and fast navigation, enhanced text input functionality, and easy parameter settings. In combination with new powerful software features, high-capacity data storage and fast data transfer, the OmniScan MX2 provides powerful inspection capabilities for manual and automated phased array applications.
The OmniScan MX2's innovative touch screen interface with full screen mode achieves maximum visibility and provides intuitive operation for most common operator functions such as menu selection, zooming, gate selection, cursor movement, and text and value input. Wizards during setup and calibration, a high S-scan and A-scan display refresh rate, and a fast pulse repetition frequency (PRF) make the OmniScan MX2 an efficient inspection tool. High-speed data transfer can be achieved with an SD card or through USB ports.
The OmniScan Phased Array family comes with all software options including Multigroup, Time-of-Flight Diffraction (TOFD) and the new Weld Overlay Wizard software that facilitates the creation of industry standard weld overlays for analysis assistance and volumetric flaw placement.
The OmniScan MX2 is a modular instrument that is fully compatible with the thousands of phased array modules already in the field. Its technology platform allows for fast and easy software and phased array module upgrades ranging from to 16:64 to 32.128 configurations. The OmniScan MX2 can be used with a full range of phased array probes, scanners, and accessories, making Olympus the phased array solutions provider of choice for the petrochemical, aerospace, and other industrial markets.
"Olympus has taken the OmniScan flaw detector to a new level, redefining this standard in phased array. The touch screen allows time-saving inspections, but what makes this new unit unique and improves inspection efficiency is its fast data acquisition, extensive analysis, and high-speed data management and reporting. The thousands of OmniScan MX users should be pleased to know that this faster and improved platform can house any of the phased array modules they already own," says Luc Langlois, Director of Advanced Products at NDT.
