What is different from the current FPD-8010E?
The biggest difference is how to read the Prescale.
FPD-8010E captures the Prescale with scanner, and the Prescale Mobile captures Prescale with the camera function of the mobile device.
There are other differences, so please check the home page for details or contact us using the inquiry form.
Should I buy Prescale Mobile or FPD-8010E?
Although both basic analytical functions are common, Prescale Mobile has a lot of inspection efficiency functions, and FPD-8010E has a lot of detailed analysis functions (at the moment).
Please check the comparison chart for details.
Can I copy the calibration sheet?
The pressure value is not calculated correctly because the color cannot be reproduced.
How to use
Can inspection data be output to a PC?
You can output.
Download via cable wired itunes or via your iCloud.
For details, refer to the reference manual.
What data and data formats can I output?
"Export" transfers the values/results that are measured and displayed in the application.
"MpaMap" transfers the pressure value for each Pixel of the pressure map that was shot.
Both are output in csv-file (similar to FPD-8010E).
For details, refer to the reference manual.
What is the recommended lighting condition for capturing image?
This is the environment for capturing colored Prescales on mobile devices.
Use the following environmental conditions when capturing.
- Recommended light source: White LED/ fluorescent lamp
- Recommended illumination: 500-900Lux
- Recommended colour temp.: 5, 000-6,500K
What kind of phenomenon will occur when capturing outside the recommended lighting condition?
Otherwise, the color tone may not be corrected and the pressure value may not be measured correctly.
Can I inspect with the Prescale curled?
If the Prescale floats from the calibration sheet due to curl, the pressure value cannot be measured correctly.
Place a weight on the non-colored part of the image, for example, so that it does not float from the calibration sheet.
Is it possible to continue using the license when I would like to change the mobile device to new one?
After you disable the license from the settings of the original mobile device app, you can continue to use it by installing the app on the new mobile device and registering the license.
The license expiration date is not changed.
When changing mobile devices, can I migrate past analytics data to a new model?
Data is saved on the mobile device, so it is not transferred to the new device.
Can I continue using the same data if I switch the license from one year to a perpetual year?
Yes,you can continue to use same data.
What should I do if I want to capture a Prescale larger than the calibration sheet?
Cut the Prescale to fit the A4 size before inspecting with Prescale Mobile.
Do you have a simple manual?
Quick Manual is included when you purchase the product.
If you contact us, we can send it in advance.
Where is the Lot number of the Prescale written?
It is listed on the exterior box of the Prescale.
The result was different from the pressure value imagined, but why?
Possible causes are:
- The lighting environment is not within the recommended range.
- There is a shadow in the picture.
- The Prescale is floating from the calibration sheet by the curl.
- Inspection conditions (variety, pressure type, temperature and humidity) are not registered correctly.
If the mobile device breaks down, is it possible to continue using the license?
If you contact us, we will activate the original terminal.
You can use it continuously if you activate it with a new device after that.Note that the license period will continue.
If you update after the license period expires, will the data remain? It will remain.
If you re-activate it, you can use it as it is.
However, please be careful because if you delete the app from your device, the data will also be deleted.
