Product Description

Olympus Omniscan SX Ultrasonic Detector

Olympus is proud to introduce the OmniScan SX, a flaw detector that benefits from more than 20 years of phased array experience and shares the OmniScan DNA. For improved ease of use, the OmniScan SX features a new streamlined software interface displayed on an 8.4 in. (21.3 cm) touch screen. A single-group and non-modular instrument, the OmniScan SX is easy to operate and cost-effective for less demanding applications.


The OmniScan SX comes in two models: the SX PA and SX UT. The SX PA is a 16:64PR phased array unit, which, like the UT-only SX UT, is equipped with a conventional UT channel for pulse-echo, pitch-catch or TOFD inspection. Compared to the OmniScan MX2, the SX is 33% lighter and 50% smaller, offering an unprecedented level of portability for an OmniScan.

The OmniScan SX touch screen offers a full-screen mode option that maximizes visibility, essentially converting many menu functions into easy touch-screen operations. The intuitive interface provides smooth menu selection, zooming, gate adjustments, cursor movements, and text and value input. These, along with other premium integrated features, including easy-to-follow setup and calibration Wizards, a rapid refresh rate for both the S-scan and A-scan displays, and a fast pulse repetition frequency (PRF), make the OmniScan SX a highly efficient inspection tool.

The OmniScan SX is fully compatible with the extensive portfolio of Olympus scanners, probes and accessories, as well as with its dedicated software companions, NDT SetupBuilder and OmniPC. Combined, the complete family of software and hardware contributes to a streamlined and efficient inspection workflow, from design and setup to acquisition and analysis.

New Version 4.1

Olympus is proud to introduce the latest 4.1 OmniScan software. This new release includes many enhancements and new functionalities.

In the effort for continuous improvement, the software interface was simplified and the response time optimized in order to provide the best experience possible for customers.

To simplify operation and ease the learning process for new and current OmniScan users, every item of the interface is now accessible at all times, due to the introduction of a single operation mode. As a result, all 3 environments are now unified:

  • SX, or MX2, using the touchscreen
  • SX, or MX2, using a mouse
  • OmniPC

To enhance the user experience, the new title bar provides instant access to the main display options. In addition, most common functions are now available at your fingertips through the interactive menus of the full-screen mode, offering tablet-like user-friendliness.

MXU for OmniScan SX

The arrival of the OmniScan SX introduces a new “Application” Wizard. This handy software feature allows fast setup creation for the most common applications, rendering the setup process hassle-free.
