Instrument Inspector

Getting Started

1. Activate 30 days Trial - You will learn how to use the Instrument Inspector for free.


2. Register your measuring instruments - with the Trial version you can test up to three at the moment.

Register one or more Targets - you can start with free self-printed version — make a  high-quality print on your proofer, or find already printed Proof Certification Wedge (12647-7 Idealliance Control Wedge or Ugra/Fpgra Media Wedge v.3).  
Make sure if it is in good condition, not faded, printed with no-errors or not mechanically damaged. When stored in a black envelope can be stable for few weeks. In the future you can buy one from the factory - printed, vinyl, metal or ceramic with a lifetime of days.


Additionally later, you may want to use Calibration White Plaque (which comes with an Instrument) or e.g. vinyl ColorChecker by X-Rite which is non-expencive and popular (comes with I1Profiler Publish or maybe or both separately). 


3. Your instruments will now be associated with Targets. Each pair of Instrument Target can receive measurement data independently - it is necessary to activate the settings once. At this point the user can decide on the selected parameters - eg indicate the set of tolerances that will determine his expectations with respect to the instrument's accuracy.


In preferences, the user can also set parameters for self-recognition of measurement data. 

It is worthwhile to use software that will provide a high level of automation so that the control measurement for periodic verification of the Instrument will be very fast and easy to become routine. Just a simple repeat of the verification measurement is the key to making sure our measurements are reliable and reproducible. Routine measurement is an automatic document entry required by quality control systems based on ISO 9000 - tracking the correctness of the instrument has never been so easy - and simple action will free us from many potential problems. Confidence in measurements means as much as a recertification by the manufacturer - just take care of Target, which will remain stable for many years.

Clicking on Instrument preferences an additional information can be defined:


Target  selection

Note that I do not have the ideal solution because there is no technical ability to reconcile the various technical solutions of different instruments - the requirements are contradictory. You need to select one or more Targets that best perform their tasks. Learn more about different Targets here. 


Software for measurement 

Depending on Instrument a different software can be used for data capture.We recommend choosing a solution that will provide the best possible productivity and will make it easier for the operator to work with it, removing unnecessary manual operations. It means that additional commercial software has to be installed.
