with the Portable Data Recorder (PDR)
Dynasil Products' Portable
Data Recorder (PDR) option is a low-cost, lightweight data-entry
solution for lead inspectors in the field. The PDR is designed
to run on a hand held PC running Windows® software.
It allows the lead inspector to quickly and easily gather data
in the field without any limitations. PDR interfaces with
the Report Generation Software (RGS),
streamlining data entry and allowing the inspector to produce
reports more quickly and efficiently.
Features include the following.
- Fully customizable
- Create your
own structures, substrates, and more.
- Auto save feature
prevents data loss.
- Auto reminder
feature keeps you synchronized with your LPA-1.
- Enter calibrations,
comments, and cover sheets.
- View your work
with preview feature.
- Export your
data as comma-delimited text.
- Interfaces with
the RMD software or
- Download &
merge the LPA-1 data directly to the PDR..
- Easy merge feature
to laptop or standard PC.
Operating Modes: Flexibility &
Speed of Measurement
three measurement modes of operation in the LPA- 1 analyzer:
Mode ", the operator selects a fixed measurement time which
remains constant regardless of the lead signal.
Mode", the analyzer seeks the shortest period of time to assure
a definitive measurement with 95% confidence (2sigma). The LPA-
1 analyzer concludes a measurement once the 2 sigma confidence
level is achieved, typically between 2 to 4 seconds depending
on the action level and the lead content.
checks, the user selects the "Time Corrected" mode. The Time Corrected
mode is a 30-second Standard Mode equivalent time corrected for
the life of the source.
analysis capability of the LPA-1 analyzer is complemented with
a data storage capacity of 4000 data points. After completing
the lead inspection, the measurement results may be transferred
from the LPA-1 to a computer at the inspectors convenience via
an RS-232/USB communication link. The easy to use LPA- 1 Report
Generating Software creates a simulation of the actual inspection
site with icons for doors, windows, steps, etc.
Manual or Interactive
can be used in either the "Manual: or "Interactive Mode".
The Interactive Mode allows the user to input all the sample parameters
and notes, and at the completion of an LPA-1 reading, that lead
value is sent directly from the LPA-1 to the PDR system. Therefore,
all lead inspection report information is contained in the PDR
system streamlining the Inspection Report production process.
is used independent of direct connection to the LPA-1. Manual
Mode allows the user to enter all the reading parameters into
the PDR system and then quickly transferred, merged with the LPA-1
readings and opened using the report generation software (RGS)
to produce the Lead Inspection Reports.
