HunterLab Predictive Diagnostic is a software application that is designed to monitor the software and hardware components of HunterLab’s Essential-based instruments in order to ensure a better color measurement experience for HunterLab customers. The Predictive Diagnostic mainly used to capture different low-level and user-initiated data during normal operations of the Essentials based instruments.
Following are predictive diagnostics features implemented in Vista Essentials Rev1.09 and above.
1. Predictive Diagnostics settings in WORKSPACE MENU > DIAGNOSTICS > PREDICTIVE:
1.1 Setup reminder interval (days) for repeatability test, didymium filter test, ND filter test(optional) and Haze standard test(Optional). Disable/enable alerts from predictive diagnostics. As default, "Disable Warning/Error Alert" is checked.
1.2 View trend plots of repeatability diagnostics tests, didymium filter diagnostics tests, ND filter diagnostics tests, Haze standard diagnostics tests and monitor channel TOS (Collected from each standardization). In each trend plot, first select the time range, then click “Show” button to display the data. In the plot, click each data point to get the details showing in the right side.
1.3 Export the predictive diagnostics data in csv files to thumb drive. It is recommended to share the predictive diagnostics files when users contact firstname.lastname@example.org for instrument issues. There are three types of predictive diagnostics files:
Diagnostics Data records all the diagnostics tests (Repeatability and Didymium Filter)
Standardization vector log records raw data from sample channel and monitor channel during each standardization.
Initial Data is the record of original raw data from sample channel and monitor channel. This data should not be modified by users.
2. Collect raw data from each standardization, analysis, and provide Warning messages.
2.1 Record standardization vector data.
2.2 Record the sample channel signal data of light trap. Show an warning alert if max Light Trap is above 4000.
2.3 Record the sample channel signal data of BOS. Show an warning alert if max BOS is above 700.
2.4 Record the Monitor channel Signal data of TOS. Show an warning alert if max monitor is below 16000.
2.5 Record the Sample channel Signal data of TOS. Show an warning alert if max monitor data is below 16000.
3. Except the above predictive diagnostics alerts, here is an additional one: Show an warning alert if next service date of this instrument is in 1 month.
4. Once the "Disable Error/Warning Alerts" is unchecked and applied in WORKSPACE MENU > DIAGNOSTICS > PREDICTIVE, the info button in the tool bar will list all the existing warning and error messages and it will be labeled with different color dot.
-If there is error(s), the info button will be shown with a red dot.
-If the instrument has warning(s) but no error, the info button will be shown with a yellow dot.
-If there is no error or warning, then no color dot is labeled on info button.
