Configuration Add the GPS.DLL to your ‘Boat’ mobile. Create a 2 nd mobile and name it ‘Cutter’. Add the Inclinometer.DLL to the 2 nd mobile. For swing-ladder dredges, add the HD25A.DLL to the 2 nd mobile.
Zimwit Dredging Inclinometer Calibration In HYPACK HARDWARE: Click on the Inclinometer device. Click on the Setup button. Select the Inclinometer Type. Enter the length of the ladder arm, from trunnion to the digging tool. Enter the radius of the cutter head. In HYPACK SURVEY: Set the cutter head on the water surface. In the Inclinometer driver window, click the ‘Calibrate’ button. Lower the cutter head to a known depth and compare it with the depth shown in the SURVEY program.
Swing ladder optional HD25A Swing ladder optional HD25A (Only for cutter suction dredges that have a ladder arm that can swing left-right from the center.) In HYPACK HARDWARE: Click on the HD25A device. Click on the Setup button. Position your ladder in its center position. Enter 0 (zero) in the Angle field Click the angle button. Move the ladder left or right to its full range of motion and return to the 0 (zero) position. Check your calibration. Repeat as necessary.
