  • NDT inspections are essential for helping to ensure safety in a variety of industries and applications. However, it’s not always easy to reach the inspection area. In the past, difficult-to-access sections of pipes, vessels, supports, and other structures were reached via scaffolding. Large steel structures would be erected, and the NDT technician would stand on the scaffold to perform the inspection. Today, this bottom up approach is being replaced in many applications by a top down approach using rope access inspectors.

    The EPOCH 6LT flaw detector is optimized for rope access applications.

    Already engineered for IP65/67, the rope access accessory kit includes a soft case that provides added protection for the flaw detector while it’s attached to your leg. A removable display protector helps protect the screen from damage from carabiners, ropes, and falling debris.

    With features designed for rope access applications, our EPOCH® 6LT ultrasonic flaw detector helps inspectors stay safe while making it easier for them to do their jobs. The optional rope access accessory kit turns the flaw detector into an instrument optimized for work at height applications.

    Portable and powerful, the EPOCH 6LT flaw detector has the features to get the job done. With the accessory kit, the flaw detector securely attaches to your leg and harness, keeping the instrument secure and easily accessible and enabling your hands to stay free to work the rigging or maintain balance. The display rotates from horizontal to vertical, so the A-scan remains in an ideal viewing position while the instrument is on your leg, and the buttons and rotary knob remain readily accessible for easy parameter adjustments.

  • Don’t compromise your comfort or safety during rope access inspections to get a flaw detector with the nondestructive testing capabilities you need.

    With the EPOCH® 6LT ultrasonic flaw detector and our rope access accessory kit, you can easily strap the instrument to your leg or attach it to your harness for true hands-free operation.

    Depending on how you choose to position the instrument, you can rotate the inspection display to portrait mode so you can properly visualize the A-scan and associated readings.

    With the unit secured, make parameter adjustments using either your left or right hand, leaving your other hand free for balance and maneuvering.

  • Data Management

    When your inspection is finished, the EPOCH 6LT flaw detector makes data management easy. Multiple report and data file formats can be exported from the instrument via removable USB memory or, with optional Wireless LAN, to the Olympus Scientific Cloud. Take advantage of the instrument’s data management features, including:

    • Export calibration, incremental, and 2D data file formats
    • Thickness survey export in .CSV format
    • Transmit and archive inspection data wirelessly
    • Rapid, remote access to inspection data via the Olympus Scientific Cloud




    In-Service Wind Turbine Inspection

    In-service wind turbine towers and blades are regularly inspected by rope access NDT technicians, and the EPOCH 6LT flaw detector is powerful enough to conduct both inspections using a single instrument. The acoustic and sizing features of the EPOCH 6LT flaw detector are well-suited to inspecting the welded joints of a wind tower. Given the attenuation and sound scattering properties of composite blade material, turbine blade inspections require a very capable instrument, and the EPOCH 6LT flaw detector is up to the challenge.

  • Features for Wind Tower Inspections

    The EPOCH 6LT flaw detector features the same high dynamic range pulser/receiver as the EPOCH 650 flaw detector, including:

    • PerfectSquareTM tunable square wave pulser
    • Digital high dynamic range receiver
    • Eight (8) 100% digital filter sets, including low frequency bandwidth support
    • Pulser voltage up to 400 V
    • DAC/TCG and DGS/AVG software functionality included
