Olympus Omni Scan MX2 Webinar for advanced calibration

Hi All,
I remember watching an Olympus webinar for calibration of the MX2 where it was recommended NOT to perform velocity calibration when using standard materials with known velocities. Does anyone have a link or knowledge of where I can find this webinar online? I can't locate it and am hoping one of you know where to find it.

Thanks in advanced!

That's such a good hint (way to go Olympus!). It makes no sense to re-prove laws of physics that we've known for 100 years.

Velocity: under most circumstances, just enter the nominal value. If it's really hot or really cold, perhaps some additional steps are necessary.

Wedge delay: just load up the wedge you're using and double check that everything is in tolerance.

Neither one of these really *requires* a calibration, per se. Always verify to make sure things line up, of course.

Hi All,
Thanks for the link, although I had already been there and searched the video titles I could not remember which video it was. Having scanned through them the velocity potion i was searching for is in:

Introduction to Phased Array using the OmniScan MX2 Part3 @ 6 minutes.

Further there is valuable information in regard to wedge angle and height to first element measurements in the video titled:

Phased Array TOF Calibrations for Precision.

Hats off to Olympus for creating these videos and keeping their distribution open and accessible.

Hi Levy, "Introduction to Phased Array Inspection Using the OmniScan MX2, Part 3" should be what you were looking for.
