Raw UT data files / Converting OPD to raw data files

Hi There,

I am looking ot better understand the process of converting OPD (olympus) files into CSV or other consumable formats that I can analyze without the proprietary omniscan software. Alternatively if there is a way to donwload that raw data file directly that would be good too. Does anyone have experience with this?

Some light reading across this forum I have seen the NDT Data Access Library software mentioned as a potential solve, but not sure how that works.

Thanks for any help on this topic!

The data access library gives you access to the raw data via your own common language programming. I would suggest finding the manual for the DAL and seeing if it will fit your needs (from internet or Olympus representative).I think it is also here: https://www.olympus-ims.com/en/resources/manuals/

You can access data in CSV from an OmniScan MX2/SX fairly easily by right clicking the C-scan (amplitude or thickness )in OmniPC and exporting. It goes to a directory on your computer. I believe this info is in the manual. I believe it is also possible on the instruments directly if you do not have OmniPC.
