Product Description

Olympus EPOCH 650 Ultrasonic Flaw Detector

The large, full VGA transflective display combined with our patented digital high dynamic range receiver provides a stable, striking A-scan representation in any lighting condition. The EPOCH 650 is designed to meet the requirements of EN12668-1 and allows a full range of standard and optional flaw detection features. Multiple onboard reporting tools and a comprehensive data filing system enable you to easily collect and report high quality inspection data. The rugged, ergonomic design allows use in nearly any inspection environment, while the flexible PerfectSquare™ pulser and highest number of digital filters in its class can tackle nearly any application.

The EPOCH 650 Digital Ultrasonic Flaw Detector combines Olympus’ industry leading conventional flaw detection capabilities with the efficiency of a highly portable, intuitive instrument. The EPOCH 650 flaw detector’s blend of efficient menus and direct access keys allows you to take advantage of the highest quality flaw detection platform with exceptional ease of use.

Designed for All Inspection Environments
The EPOCH 650 is designed for use in nearly any inspection environment, from bench top testing in a laboratory to extreme outdoor and hazardous conditions. Designed for IP rating in either knob (IP66) or navigation pad (IP67) configurations, and tested to very high environmental and reliability standards, the EPOCH 650 allows users in any inspection environment to feel confident in both the performance and durability of the instrument. The EPOCH 650 design is focused on providing a very high level of fl aw detection with the simplicity of a basic instrument. The EPOCH 650 is designed to be ergonomic, intuitive, and practical for both experienced and novice ultrasonic inspectors.

Intuitive User Interface
The EPOCH 650 user interface is based on the industry leading EPOCH 600 fl aw detector. The EPOCH 650 combines a simple menu structure for instrument settings, calibration and software feature adjustment, with the EPOCH brand’s hallmark direct-access key approach for critical inspection functions such as gain and gate adjustment, screen freeze, and file save. Supported in multiple languages, the EPOCH 650 user interface is intuitive for any level of operator.

Vibrant VGA Display with Full Screen Mode
The EPOCH 650 features a full VGA (640 x 480 pixels) resolution display. The horizontal design of the EPOCH 650 optimizes the A-scan size and readability on this high quality display. Built with transflective technology, this VGA display provides excellent clarity in indoor, low lighting conditions using its powerful backlight, as well as in direct sunlight by using the ambient light as a pseudo-backlight. The full screen mode feature enhances this vibrant display to provide the largest A-scan in an EPOCH series fl aw detector!

Options for Comfortable Navigation In order to accommodate different user needs and preferences, the EPOCH 650 is available in two hardware configurations:

  • Knob The adjustment knob on the EPOCH 650 is used along with the CHECK and ESC keys to adjust parameter values in either coarse or fi ne increments. You have the ability to lock the knob to prevent accidental parameter value changes during an inspection. This confi guration provides smooth value slewing for customers who prefer adjusting parameters using a knob. The knob confi guration is designed to meet the requirements of IP66.
  • Navigation Pad The EPOCH 650 navigation pad is a hallmark feature of the EPOCH fl aw detectors. The up and down arrows on the navigation pad are used for coarse parameter adjustment, and the left and right arrows for fi ne adjustment. The navigation pad also contains additional functions and frequently used parameters such as gain, save, and the CHECK and ESC keys. The navigation pad confi guration is designed to meet the requirements of IP67.

Standard Software Features Olympus EPOCH 650 Ultrasonic Flaw Detector

  • Dynamic DAC/TCG: Calculates signal amplitude as a percentage or decibel level compared to a DAC curve or a reference echo amplitude fixed at a time-varied gain. DAC versions include Standard, ASME 3, JIS, and Custom. Also includes several key features: dynamically adjustable DAC curves, switchable DAC and TCG views, custom DAC warning curves, and 20-80% DAC views.
  • DGS/AVG: This fl aw sizing technique allows echo signals to be evaluated with a DGS/AVG diagram associated to a particular type of probe and material. The DGS/AVG diagram illustrates the relationships between echo height, fl aw size, and distance from the transducer.
  • AWS D1.1 and D1.5: Provides a dynamic reflector indication rating for various AWS weld inspection applications. This allows more efficient inspections EPOCH 650 Dynamic DAC/TCG Feature by eliminating manual calculations.

Data Logging and PC Interfacing:

Data Management
The EPOCH 650 allows several methods of storing, archiving and reporting inspection and calibration data. The instrument features up to 100,000 points of onboard memory, as well as video recording and review. It is also fully compatible with Olympus PC interface program, GageView™ Pro. With quick file setup functions and flexible data management, logging and reporting inspection data is simple and efficient.

Data Logger
The EPOCH 650 features an onboard data logger for calibration and inspection file storage. The instrument comes with two primary file types: calibration (CAL) and incremental (INC) files. CAL files allows you to save a virtually unlimited number of parameter setups for fast and easy recall to live settings. INC files store multiple pieces of inspection data under a single file name for downloading and reporting by inspection. The onboard data logger is enhanced by full featured corrosion-style data logger file types standard on the EPOCH 650. This feature includes the following data file types: sequential, sequential with custom point, 2-D grid, 2-D grid with custom point, 3-D grid, boiler, 2-D EPRI.

GageView™ Pro
The EPOCH 650 is fully compatible with our PC interface program, GageView™ Pro. You can download inspection data, review measurements on a PC, export measurements and calibration data to common spreadsheet programs, back up calibration and inspection data from the instrument, and perform basic operations such as instrument fi rmware upgrades and screen captures.

The EPOCH 650 utilizes an external microSD memory card (2 GB included, up to 64 GB supported) for both onboard and removable memory. Through removable memory, you are able to share fi les between instruments, as well as output reports in various formats. A second 2 GB microSD card is mounted to the PC board inside the instrument, and is responsible for all onboard data storage. In the event the instrument is damaged beyond repair, this microSD card can be removed at an authorized service center, allowing the operator to recover critical data from the damaged instrument.

On-board Reporting
The EPOCH 650 allows report generation on-board in a variety of formats. You can easily capture screen shots to the removable microSD card, as well as exporting saved data in .csv or .xml fi les. The instrument also features Bitmap report generation for single data points or entire fi les. The EPOCH 650 comes standard with a video recording feature. You can capture up to 8 minutes of the live A-scan inspection data at 60 frames per second. This data can be reviewed on the EPOCH 650 or exported for review on a PC.
