The algorithm can quickly determine the optimal parameters by preselecting the desired frequencies.
A special level of operator knowledge is required to take full advantage of automated crack testing, the features include improved filters and distance compensation for the STATOGRAPH® CM and its big brother, the STATOGRAPH® CM +.
Inspection without proper settings of the frequency and the high-pass and low-pass filter.
Testing carried out with the ideal parameters. Electrical noise and run out can be minimized.
The use of external experts is not only expensive. In day-to-day work, this option is often impractical and cumbersome, especially for flexible production processes that require the test parameters to be changed frequently. The expert should also be available as needed. Training, on the other hand, is only effective with considerable expenditure of time and money. Furthermore, it does not protect against a migration of knowledge when changing employees. This often leaves only the alternative of accepting the higher pseudo rejections so that critical deficiencies are not overlooked due to lax test settings.
This is exactly where the Device Assistant comes in. Using a master test part, it can determine independently the optimal settings and save them.
The automatic parameter optimization uses an algorithm to optimize the test parameters, high and low pass filters and frequency to defined adjustment errors or natural material defects. Using the correct test frequency is crucial. It controls the penetration depth of the eddy current in order to identify the material defects being tested. High-pass and low-pass filters provide a higher quality signal by minimizing the influence of vibration, electronic noise or run out.
With the parameters provided by the software, even previously difficult applications can be solved at the touch of a button. By determining the test settings, errors are detected and the risk of pseudo rejects is minimized. The scope of training is reduced and instructing additional employees on the STATOGRAPH® CM+/CM is made much easier.
This brings the full power of the STATOGRAPH® CM+/CM to bear: intuitive operation and customizable display of the signals, evaluation of the surface structure through higher frequencies and sensitivity or precise suppression of interference signals with the help of improved filters.
