Establishing a network

Examples of customised device configurations:

IDECO Establishing a network

Two IDECO Thermo-Analysis devices are connected to the user's network.

In addition to local storage, the measured data is also automatically stored in a network folder on an existing file server for the purpose of data security.

Using the "QS-Master" software, it is possible to visualise, evaluate, and analyse test data in detail on one or more office workstations whilst measurements are being taken on the devices in production operation, without this causing any interruption.

IDECO Establishing a network

A wide range of mobile and stationary IDECO devices operate together in a network.

The test data can be visualised and analysed on one or more office PCs using the "QS-Master" software.

If mobile devices are not permanently connected to the (hard-wired) network, they synchronise their data automatically the next time they are connected. The network connection can also be realised via WLAN if desired (as with the Temp-Control hand-held TC150 device for example)

The central provision of master data via "QS-Master" (e.g. article or model numbers, customer and alloy designations, etc.) facilitates identification input at the individual devices and ensures a consistent inventory of test data.

Min./max. setpoints provided centrally via "QS-Master" lead to results evaluation (green/red) on the test devices as an indication for the user (e.g. release / request for further treatment).

IDECO Establishing a network

The mobile Melt-Clean device documents the melt cleaning process (time, gas quantity, rpm, additive quantity, cleaning/treatment agent) including the temperature after rotor treatment.

The Thermo-Analysis/VAC-Test combination device determines and documents the grain refinement and modification, as well as the density index.

Devices from other manufacturers provide results of spectral analysis, tensile and hardness testing.

All measurements flow automatically via a network into a data pool on an existing file server. 

The central consolidation of a wide variety of test procedures and the consistent use of a unique identifier (e.g. batch no.) gives the "QS-Master" software user back at the office a quick overview of the production process of a cast part and ensures straightforward traceability of the product with its defined quality characteristics.

An individual add-on module for "QS-Master" can then be used to quickly and easily create acceptance test certificates for the cast parts from the existing data inventory.
