APM Annual International Partners Conference


Coming release

Coming Release

  • Due by the end of Q2

    • 3DlevelManager 3.0.0

    • 3DLevelScanner FW 3.0.0

General

General

  • Major release of firmware requires a compatible software

  • The new FW has several major changes in the algorithm

  • The compatible SW has less features and parameters to configure

  • The parameters are set and adjusted automatically by the new algorithm in the FW

Configuration wizard

Configuration Wizard

  • In step 2 – the bottom part can be asymmetrical, cone or pyramid, can be with the emptying point in any offset from the center of the vessel

Configuration wizard1

Configuration Wizard

  • Step 7 – removed: Media Type (Frequency) and Process condition

    • In the new FW the frequency and the process condition are set automatically by the algorithm

APM Annual International Partners Conference


Advanced parameters

Advanced Parameters

  • Most of the configuration parameters are not available any more

  • All fields are in a single tab

  • Removed:

    • Window size

    • Transmission Power

    • Extrapolation

    • Grades Filter

    • Rates and Capacity (exist in the configuration wizard)

    • CFAR sensitivity

    • Good SNR

    • Compressed pulses

  • Added (moved from Extended Calibration Tab):

    • Dumping Time

    • Offset

    • Material angle

3d image

3D Image

  • New graphic design, similar to 3DVision

  • Advanced settings:

    • Adding the scanner

    • Viewing filling and emptying points

    • Selecting material color

    • Display X, Y and Z axis

    • Option to save the 3D image

    • Various view modes

    • And more…

  • Playing the stored 3D movie from the log files

  • The installation package requires Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1

  • Note: If it is not possible to install the .NET Framework the 3DLevelManager installation package will install the existing visualization

APM Annual International Partners Conference


Grades analysis

Grades Analysis

  • Grades are calculated on 9 separated directional transmissions

  • Additional view collects all transmissions on the same graph

  • Grades Analysis and False Echoes Mapping to be executed for troubleshooting

APM Annual International Partners Conference


Functions in the tabs view

Functions in The Tabs View

  • Most of the fields were moved into the advanced configuration window:

    • Dumping time

    • Offset

    • Steepest Material Slope

    • Historic Log

  • Only two functions are left in the tabs:

    • Extended Calibration Tab – False Echo Mapping

    • Output Tab – Current Simulation and Output Mode

APM Annual International Partners Conference


Troubleshooting

Troubleshooting

  • Remote Connection

    • It is recommended to have an option to connect to a remote site to provide immediate support

    • The options are:

      • Using 3DLinkPro – provide access to the scanners directly

      • Using TCP/IP – provide access to the scanners directly, requires assistance of local IT / system administrators

      • Using a 3G GSM USB stick – allowing to take control over the computer without the need of local IT

      • Taking control over the customer’s computer, by Logmein, Teamviewer, Showmypc, Webex, etc.

Troubleshooting1

Troubleshooting

  • Scanner Behavior

    • Check and confirm the configurations with the customer and by actual measurements (Silo dimensions, Position of Scanner and Rates)

    • Check scanner orientation

    • Clean scanner (it always help even if there is small layer of dust inside the horns)

    • Upgrade to the most updated FW, reset to factory defaults and reconfigure manually (save the configuration file and upload it as reference)

    • Follow filling and emptying processes

    • Perform Grades analysis

    • Based on all information an educated conclusion can be made, for example:

      • Further fine tuning using the Advanced Parameters

      • False Echoes Mapping

Troubleshooting2

Troubleshooting

  • GPRS Communication

  • From the office

    • Check SIM card plan with the provider, confirm the possibility to send and receive SMS, GPRS is available and the quote / package limitation has not been reached

    • Call the SIM card number to verify an existing line

    • Send SMS to the SIM card, can be to reset the LinkPro: HW MODEM RESET

  • On-Site

    • Check power supply to the 3DLinkPro, confirm same power supply to the scanners and LinkPro, check that the ratings are above 1 Ampere for the LinkPro and 120mA for each scanner, make sure there is mutual ground between the LinkPro and the scanners

    • Confirm that the RS-485 bus has two 120 Ohm resistors, one at each end of the bus

    • Use the Modem Wizard to configure and test the LinkPro and SIM card, set operation mode of the LinkPro according to the country

Troubleshooting3

Troubleshooting

  • RS-485 Communication

    • Check that the connection between all scanners is Daisy chain

    • Confirm that the cable in use is suitable for RS-485 – has 120 Ohm impedance, twisted-pair, shielded

    • Make sure the shield is grounded on one end

    • Two 120 Ohm resistors must be connected on the communication lines at the ends of the RS-485 lines

    • Make sure that all scanners have same power supply, if not all must have the same grounding for communication reference

    • Each scanner has a different polling address
