model 2010 - Report Generation

Report Generation and
D-CAPP software video

's Detector Unit can store the data from 10 complete surveys, each with full information - including date and time - for up to 100 locations.

At any point in a survey, the operator can call up a series of graphically presented reports on the Detector display (Figure 1 and Figure 2) showing signal strength, attenuation, pipeline depth, location co-ordinates, and approximate coating conductivity plotted against distance.

The day's reports stored in 's computer can simply be transferred to another computer for archiving and/or printed out directly as a table (Figure 3) or - using 's own software - as a graphic presentation.

(see Figures 4 to 7)

Dynalog supplies the program as standard.

The program allows a C-Scan Detector Unit to download all survey data into the PC and to produce a report - with plots - automatically.

The C-Scan Detector Unit is connected to the PC via an RS232 serial link. Data is downloaded by using the PRINT facility.

By using the 'front panel' that appears on the screen a range of functions can be selected:

Initiate the fully automatic download and format procedure. This produces the report automatically, complete with graphical plots of DEPTH, CURRENT and ATTENUATION. If GPS data is present, a positional plot of each survey point is produced, expressed as offsets in metres from the survey start point.

Recall and display of 'old' for DOS files, displayed in the new format.

Manipulation of the source data for corrections - with a re-format function.

Add pipeline data such as reference points, features, and CP points - e.g: points adjacent to trees, roads, pylons, etc., for which a wide range of symbols is included in the Detector Unit display.
