Simple and Comfortable Operation
The EPOCH 650 design is focused on providing a very high level of flaw detection with the simplicity of a basic instrument. The EPOCH 650 is designed to be ergonomic, intuitive, and practical for both experienced and novice ultrasonic inspectors.
Intuitive User InterfaceThe EPOCH 650 user interface is based on the industry leading EPOCH 600 flaw detector. The EPOCH 650 combines a simple menu structure for instrument settings, calibration and software feature adjustment, with the EPOCH brand’s hallmark direct-access key approach
for critical inspection functions such as gain and gate adjustment, screen freeze, and file save. Supported in multiple languages, the EPOCH 650 user interface is intuitive for any level of operator.
Vibrant VGA Display with Full Screen ModeThe EPOCH 650 features a full VGA (640 x 480 pixels) resolution display. The horizontal design of the EPOCH 650 optimizes the A-scan size and readability on this high quality display. Built with transflective technology, this VGA display provides excellent clarity in indoor, low lighting conditions using its powerful backlight, as well as in direct sunlight by using the ambient light as a pseudo-backlight.
The full screen mode feature enhances this vibrant display to provide the largest A-scan in an EPOCH series flaw detector!
Options for Comfortable NavigationIn order to accommodate different user needs and preferences, the EPOCH 650 is available in two hardware configurations:
KnobThe adjustment knob on the EPOCH 650 is used along with the CHECK and ESC keys to adjust parameter values in either coarse or fine increments. You have the ability to lock the knob to prevent accidental parameter value changes during an inspection. This configuration provides smooth value slewing for customers who prefer adjusting parameters using a knob. The knob configuration is designed to meet the requirements of IP66.
Navigation PadThe EPOCH 650 navigation pad is a hallmark feature of the EPOCH flaw detectors. The up and down arrows on the navigation pad are used for coarse parameter adjustment, and the left and right arrows for fine adjustment. The navigation pad also contains additional functions and frequently used parameters such as gain, save, and the CHECK and ESC keys. The navigation pad configuration is designed to meet the requirements of IP67.
