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 Agera Essentials Rev1.05 and above.
1. Predictive Diagnostics settings in WORKSPACE MENU > DIAGNOSTICS > PREDICTIVE:
1.1 Setup reminder interval (days) for the repeatability test and green tile test. Disable/enable alerts from predictive diagnostics. As default, "Disable Error/Warning Alerts" is checked.
1.2 View trend plots of repeatability diagnostics tests (white tile), green tile diagnostics tests, gloss tile 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, Green Tile and Gloss Tile test)
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 gloss data of instrument Black glass. Show an warning alert if Gloss value is below 20000.
2.3 Record the sample channel signal data of instrument Black glass. Show an warning alert if Max BOS is above 700.
2.4 Record the Monitor channel Signal data of instrument White tile. Show an warning alert if max monitor data from pixel 32-96 is below 21500.
2.5 Record the Sample channel Signal data of instrument White tile. Show an warning alert if max monitor data is below 20000.
3. Except the above predictive diagnostics alerts, here are some additional alerts: Show an warning alert if green tile any XYZ difference is between 0.25-0.3. 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.
