Are You Aware That OmniPC™ 5 Software Is Actually Freeware?

Beware of So-Called Freeware

When it comes to some companies offering freeware, “free” sometimes translates to “hidden costs.” But this isn't the case with our OmniPC™ 5 analysis software. OmniPC 5 software:

  • Is free to download and use.
  • Has free updates.
  • Has no subscription or renewal payments.
  • Requires no product or HASP key to install. Simply download the software from the Olympus IMS website. See the system requirements here.

That’s it—no fine print.

OmniPC software is a practical tool that enables NDT inspectors and their customers, such as asset owners and operators, to review and analyze inspection data without having to pay for a licence or download a second data viewer with limited features.

Complimentary Complementary Software for the OmniScan™ Series

OmniPC software is Olympus’ complimentary companion software for the OmniScan™ series, including the OmniScan X3 phased array flaw detector. OmniPC 5 software enables inspectors who use OmniScan X3 flaw detectors to perform efficient post-inspection data analysis and reporting on a PC or laptop.

Because OmniPC 5 software’s user interface and analysis and reporting features resemble the OmniScan X3 flaw detector’s on-board software, transitioning from one to the other is easy. There’s no need to learn how to use a new software for the analysis of your OmniScan data files.

Watch this tutorial video to see the main features and functions of OmniPC software.

A Flexible, User-Friendly, and Practical Analysis Software

OmniPC 5 software is optimized for UT (ultrasonic testing), PA (phased array), TOFD (time-of-flight diffraction), and TFM (total focusing method) data analysis. Its user-friendly features include convenient shortcuts, the flexibility to use different methods, and the ability to open multiple sessions on one computer.

Featuring OmniScan Users’ Favorite Tools

OmniPC 5 software comes equipped with some of OmniScan flaw detector user’s favorite analysis tools, including:

  • Standard post-process corrections (gain, Auto 80%, index and scan offsets, and gate editing)
  • Basic reporting and indication table
  • Basic analysis tools (linked cursors, TOFD calibration, multiple window capability, and keyboard mouse shortcuts)
  • Views and layouts optimized for weld, corrosion, single group, and multigroup inspections

Open Multiple OmniPC 5 Sessions Simultaneously

To ease comparison of inspection data, you can open multiple distinct data files and display them side by side for increased efficiency.

OmniPC 5 also has tools to correct any oversights made during acquisition. The gain, skew, scan offset, and index offset parameters can be changed during post-inspection analysis to improve data accuracy and avoid reacquisition.

Convenient shortcuts, scanning configuration corrections, and side-by-side data file comparison
