Standard Software Features

Dynamic DAC/TVG: Calculates signal amplitude as a percentage or decibel level compared to a DAC curve or a reference echo amplitude fixed at a time-varied gain. DAC versions include ASME, ASME 3, JIS, and Custom. Also includes several key features: dynamically adjustable DAC curves, switchable DAC and TVG views, and custom DAC warning curves.
DGS/AVG: This flaw sizing technique allows echo signals to be evaluated with a DGS/AVG diagram associated to a particular type of probe and material. The DGS/AVG diagram illustrates the relationships between echo height, flaw size, and distance from the transducer.
Curved Surface Correction: Corrects sound path information when using an angle beam transducer to circumferentially inspect a curved surface for either tubular or bar inspections.

Options for Comfortable Navigation

In order to accommodate different user needs and preferences, the EPOCH 600 is available in two hardware configurations: one with an adjustment knob and the other with a navigation area on the keypad. The adjustment knob and the arrow keys on the navigation pad are responsible for parameter adjustment and value slewing.


The adjustment knob on the EPOCH 600 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 Pad

The EPOCH 600 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.
