DeFelsko Corp. has announced the addition of wireless technology to all advanced models of its PosiTector coating thickness gages and inspection instruments.
These new wireless features enable users to synchronize readings with its cloud-based PosiTector.net website, download updates with the latest features and functionality, and wirelessly communicate with PosiSoft Mobile from any wireless-connected device.
“Users can wirelessly synchronize and back up measurement data, including readings, images and batch notes to PosiTector.net,” says Richard Northrop, marketing manager for DeFelsko. “They can also share measurement data with other authorized users via a secure login from any computer and most web-enabled devices.
Once users connect their PosiTector instrument to a wireless network, they can:
- Browse stored measurement data, including notes, images, statistics and charts.
- Update batch names and notes using a mobile device's keyboard.
- Insert images directly into gage batches using a mobile device’s camera or image library.
- Remotely view the live display of a working PosiTector.
“Users can also accesses information on PosiTector.net from all mobile devices, including Windows phones, Blackberries, Androids and Apple iPhones,” Northrop says. He adds that DeFelsko also has launched a PosiSoft Mobile Manager app for iPhone and Google devices that is available through iTunes and Google Play. Once connected, all PosiTector instruments on the selected wireless network will be listed on the app.
