Olympus NDT (Waltham, Mass.) has introduced the EPOCH 1000 Series of digital ultrasonic flaw detectors with phased array imaging capabilities. The EPOCH 1000, EPOCH 1000iR and EPOCH 1000i provide advanced conventional ultrasound capabilities for the standard- and advanced-level inspector. These portable instruments also can be integrated into small systems for high-speed scanning and single-channel imaging. Features include 6-kHz maximum pulse rate frequency (PRF) with single-shot measurements for accurate high-speed scanning applications; a tunable square-wave pulser with PerfectSquare technology; a digital high-dynamic-range receiver; and comprehensive digital filter sets for good signal-to-noise clarity. Other features and options include SureView, which mimics the responsiveness of an analog instrument CRT display, and adjustable video filtering in phased-array mode for image smoothing.
