The OmniScan MX by Olympus is an innovative and portable multitechnology nondestructive testing (NDT) instrument. It is suitable for a number of applications, including tube inspection, weld inspection, and corrosion mapping.

The system supports any of the following NDT technologies: conventional ultrasonics (UT); phased array ultrasonics (PA); conventional eddy current testing (ECT); andeddy current array testing (ECA). Each of these technologies offers unique capabilities and a level of performance previously unseen in an instrument of this size.

The OmniScan MX also doubles as an all-in-one instrument by virtue of its modular design. Various modules are available, each with a particular inspection technology.

The OmniScan MX features:

  • Data storage and imaging
  • Conventional ultrasonic technology (UT)
  • Phased array ultrasonic technology (PA)
  • C-scan production
  • Real-time color display of the volume of a test part (sectorial scanning)
  • Up to 256 selectable A-scans per image
  • Conventional eddy current (ECT) and eddy current array (ECA) modules
