Olympus EPOCH LT Portable Ultrasonic Flaw Detector

The new Panametrics-NDT™ EPOCH LT is the lightest, thinnest flaw detector you've ever seen. This is a handheld digital flaw detector that is just 1.5 inches (38 mm) thick. Packed in a 2.35 lbs (1 kg) package the EPOCH LT gives you a fast display update rate at a minimum 60 Hz, automated transducer calibration, a numeric datalogger, and many other measurement features. The EPOCH LT is the perfect solution when you need to perform quick, basic flaw detection in difficult field conditions or demanding production environments.

HandHeld Flaw Detector

The Heavy-Duty Lightweight
Although small in size, the EPOCH LToffers many of the performance features you'd normally expect to find in bulkier flaw detectors. In addition to its fast 60 Hz update rate, the EPOCH LT has a Display Freeze Mode that holds waveform soundpath data, Peak Memory that simultaneously displays live waveform and peak envelope of A-scan, RF display mode, selectable threshold positive/negative or minimum depth Alarm Modes, and Auto Transducer Calibration that calibrates for transducer zero offset and/or material velocity.
An on-board numeric datalogger is simple to use and can store up to 100 calibrations/2000 thickness measurements. An optional Expanded Memory feature that allows storage of 500 calibrations/10000 thickness measurements. The EPOCH LT datalogger is compatible with files from the other EPOCH 4 series instruments and the GageView™ Pro Interface program.

Extensive Documentation And Transfer Capabilities
The optional Windows®-based GageView™ Pro Interface program adds practical collection, editing, and review capabilities to the EPOCH LT. GageView Pro is a powerful tool that collects, manages, and formats stored inspection data.
GageView Pro database tracking allows setup of inspection plans with pre-loaded calibrations, IDs, and memos. Data can be printed or easily copied and pasted into word processing and spreadsheet documents for further reporting needs.
