Olympus ultrasonic flaw detector

The Olympus Epoch 6LT flaw detector is designed for challenging ultrasonic inspection applications. The compact and highly portable instrument is optimised for single-handed operation in hard-to reach locations, such as offshore oil platforms, in-service wind turbines, aviation, bridges, large-scale machinery and structural steel.

Weighing just 890g with the weight evenly distributed around the grip, the Epoch 6LT can be securely attached to a user’s leg or harness with the display rotating so users can properly view the A-scan and readings.

Simple rotary knob and button controls make it easy to navigate through the user interface, even wearing gloves. Simple user software featuring a two-screen, icon based interface makes navigation quick and easy.

The ruggedly built unit is engineered to IP65/67 for dust and water resistance and drop tested to protect against the hazards found in challenging inspection applications.

Optional Wi-Fi connectivity enables ‘on the go’ backups, downloads of setups, and access to cloud applications on the Olympus Scientific Cloud. It can also be specified with optional corrosion software, thereby combining the ease of use of a thickness gauge with the flexibility of a flaw detector.
