Taking measurements when you’re not near the 4D InSpec
The remote-work solution?
Many of our 4D InSpec customers are making large numbers of repetitive measurements every day, using robots or other automated platforms.
By using a remote access API like Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), the 4D InSpec is capable of remote operation and reporting.
Here’s a 97-second video demonstration
What you can see and do
Because of the need to see into the data, review reported parameters, and to trigger measurements on demand from a remote location, we created a demonstration package that you can build upon and customize to your automation environment and reporting requirements.
In the video above, applications engineer Jared Wheeler runs the demo client package. He shows the proof-of-concept capabilities:
- Take a measurement
- View the data as a plot
- View the gauge’s live video window
- Select and exclude parameters for reporting
- Select TCP or HTTP protocols
It’s true remote control of the data acquisition, analysis and reporting functions of the gauge. Use your own existing remote automation package alongside this, and you gain remote control of both the instrument’s position and the information it is gathering about your 3D surface features.
