PA Wedge details

1.I need to use the wedge SA12N55SAOD4.5.Is it possible to use the details of wedge SA12N55S to SA12N55SAOD4.5. Do we have any changes in the details that given in the omniscan pc mx2 machine. If any changes means how to collect that data and where to get that.
2. Mainly we don't have any wedge details in Olympus software but the Olympus representatives are saying we can download the details from their software is that possible, if so how do we have to get that data.

You can enter your own wedge parameters in "define wedge". Then check on known sided drilled holes. Fine tune the parameters until your measurements match

Ganesh.

1.) The wedge SA12N55S-A0D4.5 is similar to the SA12N55S, but features "Curvature Matching" to a 4.5" diameter pipe. You can use the SA12N55S option in the Wizard when you setup your focal law, and it will operate just the same as the SA12N55S-A0D4.5 wedge will. The difference, is that the standard wedge has a flat plane, which will only couple to, and allow sound to transmit through the section of the wedge that you have flat against the pipe. With the SA12N55S-A0D4.5 wedge, you should have the entire surface area of the wedge flush against the pipe, therefore allowing the maximum amount of sound to transfer into the part. The setups will be the same for either.

2.) You can download new software updates, setup files, wedge and probe details from the Olympus website, and save them to a thumb drive. You can then plug that drive into your OmniScan, in one of the two USB ports of the side, and install those features onto the unit. This is a useful feature for future needs you may have, but you shouldn't need to do this for your current inquiry.

Good luck!

Then only for SA12 wedge we can use like that r for all wedges can we use the straight wedge details for example SA32,SA15,etc.
