E verything A n O perator N eeds The DC-9005 is capable of collecting both variables and attributes (Pro & Ultra models) With the programmable display prompts, and the audio/visual alarms, the possibility of errors by operators is greatly reduced. Drawings can also be displayed, providing the operator with a visual reference of progression
G age I nterfacing Almost any digital, serial, or analog gage can be connected to the DC-9005 Multiplexers provide multi-gage operation Manual data entry can be done by way of the DC- 9005s user-friendly keypad

T raceability T ags Four user-definable, traceability tags (i.e. operator, lot number, machine, etc…) can be input via the keypad, pick list, or barcode imager, and utilized to track and arrange data for analysis and problem solving in real-time. Process Adjustments can be entered at anytime
W arnings & C auses Trend Analysis may be performed at the end of every subgroup. Assignable Causes address the violation. Corrective Action responses are noted. Comments can be entered if further explanation is needed.
C harts & S tatistics Variable Charts include Xbar / Range, Histogram, and Process Capability Bar Attribute Charts include C, P, Pareto, and the Weighted Pareto (Pro & Ultra Models) Statistics include Cp, Cpk, Cr, Ppk, mean, range, standard / estimated sigma, skewness, kurtosis

D ata T ransfer When utilizing wireless networking, data is exported automatically at the completion of every subgroup, while leaving historical data for charting purposes. Part programs (inspection routines) can be downloaded as well from the server. Part setups can be downloaded and data can be uploaded into any host PC via the included USB cable.
D ata A nalysis Data can be exported from the DC-9005 in a text (.dat) format, or a Microsoft Excel® (.csv) format, making it usable with practically any available off-the-shelf software package. A library of custom interfaces is available. I & R Partners will provide quotations for the customization of our software in order to accommodate your companys specific needs.
B uilt -I n B arcode I mager The barcode imager can be used to scan anything with a barcode, such as, operator, serial, lot, machine, and part numbers. It can also be used for both defect data collection and production or inventory control.
