The Olson FDPC vs the Olson NDE 360

Both of these data collection platforms can be used to perform several different test methods, as is often required at a single job site. With either system, the purchaser can select the test method options according to their need and then add additional test method options at a later date.

  • A computer screen, mouse, and keypad
  • Full analysis capability for most test methods and additional analysis options
  • Able to collect data at a high sample rate (points per second) and more points per record (virtually unlimited), which can make the system attractive for specialized applications, such as those pursued in a university setting.
  • Touch screen with keypad
  • Full analysis capability for most test methods
  • Smaller, lighter and can be operated with one hand


Hands-on training is available for all of our NDE test methods at our Wheat Ridge, Colorado (USA) location, which is a suburb located approximately 15 minutes northwest of downtown Denver. Training may be available at your location by one of our agents/engineers upon special arrangement.

Save money! Contact Olson when adding on to an existing system, or purchasing multiple systems as some of the components are common to other test methods.
