Manual Omniscan MX Datasheet Brochure
The Olympus OmniScan MX Ultrasonic Flaw Detector is a portable flaw detecting instrument with a high acquisition rate capable of conducting ultrasound, phased array and eddy current inspection. Versatile in its module options, technicians rent this device to perform TOFD, pulse-echo, o-degree, c-scan, and a variety of eddy current and phased array tests for avionic and military applications. The Olympus OmniScan MX's built-in OmniScan connector physically identifies and recognizes the probe connected, automatically setting the probe to an appropriate frequency and thus mitigating the risk of probe damage. Olympus OmniScan MX models display your test results on a 21 cm, 800 x 600 pixel LCD screen, store the data via a CompactFlash card or a standard USB storage device and offer a minimum of 6 hours run life with two batteries.
