OmniPC Software for OmniScan Flaw Detectors
Product Announcement from Olympus Scientific Solutions America
Olympus NDT is pleased to introduce OmniPC software specifically developed for the Olympus OmniScan phased array flaw detector. OmniPC is a computer-based software program that provides comprehensive data analysis capabilities of inspection data acquired with the OmniScan flaw detector.
OmniPC provides several cost-savings advantages because analysis of inspection data is conducted on a computer rather than on the
OmniScan. A major benefit is that the OmniScan can be employed as a dedicated acquisition unit when scanning for hidden cracks, voids, and other internal discontinuities in metals, composites, plastics, and ceramics. Data acquisition and data analysis can be conducted concurrently, which increases productivity and decreases inspection time. The user interface of OmniPC is very similar to the OmniScan's onboard data analysis program, which makes it easy for inspectors to learn the program. Intuitive keyboard shortcuts have been added to boost productivity levels during file analysis.
OmniPC offers many of the same analysis capabilities as the OmniScan, such as Data, Reference, and Measurement cursors for defect sizing and reporting. Inspectors have access to the same tools and capabilities used to build a table of indications and generate comprehensive HTML reports. OmniPC has an extensive readings database for trigonometry, flaw statistics on axes, volumetric position information, and code-based acceptance criteria. The result is an easy-to-use software platform that dynamically expands data analysis options for OmniScan data files.
OmniPC is the perfect companion for performing analysis in conjunction with many nondestructive testing (NDT) applications, such as composite, corrosion, and weld inspection with up to three groups. For more advanced features, the Olympus NDT TomoView software suite remains available for more demanding applications such as three or more groups, group or file merging, or custom display layouts.
