Olympus OmniScan X3 Flaw Detector


The Olympus OmniScan X3 Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing / PAUT Flaw Detector is a reliable device capable of performing a variety of functions including include welds, pipelines, pipes, corrosion-resistant alloys, corrosion mapping, HTHA inspection, detection of stepwise cracking, composite inspection, and flaw imaging.

  • Compatible with existing probes and scanners
  • 32:128PR model, featuring 64-element TFM
  • 16:64PR and 16:128PR also available
  • Up to 8 groups, 1,024 focal laws
  • Compatible with MX2/SX files for convenience
  • 64 GB internal storage, extendable with an external USB drive

The combination of the OmniScan X3 flaw detector’s live total focusing method (TFM) envelope processing, up to 1,024 × 1,024 grid resolution, and vibrant color display make its TFM images stand out with exceptional detail. Defects appear sharp and clear with high resolution. The Olympus OmniScan X3's Acoustic Influence Map (AIM) tool provides an instant visual model of the sensitivity based on mode, settings, and simulated reflector. The tool can visualize the effect of a wave set (in TFM mode), see where sensitivity stops, and adjust the scan plan accordingly.

The improved Phase Array of the Olympus OmniScan X3 Flaw Detector is quick and efficient featuring 800% high amplitude range which reduces the need to rescan. This detector is compatible with existing files, setups, probes, and scanners from MX/MX2/SX models to compare old and new data as well as changes over time. The OmniScan X3's 25 GB maximum file size enables to continuously scan large components without stopping. With IP65 rain and dust proof certification, GPS to record the location of data obtained, and wireless connectivity, the Olympus OmniScan X3's uses are varied and plentiful.


  • Powerful software that’s intuitive for new and existing OmniScan users with a modern, simplified menu structure that minimizes button presses.
  • Live TFM Envelope Processing. The instrument’s unique envelope processing provides clear, high-resolution TFM images of flaws.
  • Facilitate Flaw Interpretation and Sizing. Using different TFM modes (wave sets) in the same inspection provides more chances to detect oddly oriented indications.
  • Confirm Your Coverage in Advance. The acoustic influence map (AIM) tool provides you with an instant visual model of the sensitivity based on your TFM mode, probe, settings, and simulated reflector.
  • Get to Work, Quickly. The onboard scan plan tool helps you visualize your inspection before you begin.
  • Improved Fast Calibration. The OmniScan X3 calibration menus track the signals at high speed. You can perform multiple group calibrations in minutes with minimal frustration
  • Harness the Power of Your PC. OmniPC™ software offers a suite of advanced tools, such as a side-by-side view that enables you to compare two files onscreen at the same time to maximize the power of your PC when analyzing data.
