Digi-Pro™ is truly a revolutionary software product. Through a collaborative effort of PITCO technicians, engineers, managers, software designers, and customer feedback, we have developed the most cost effective and user-friendly Digital Signal Processing System available to the pipe inspection industry.
At the heart of our Digi-Tech™ family of products is our proprietary Digital Signal Processing electronics and software, Digi-Pro™. Originally developed by our software engineers back in 1997, and over the years, Digi-Pro’s™ features and capabilities have been refined and expanded to become the cornerstone technology for our Digi-Tech™ product line.
Since the mid 1990’s, Digi-Pro™ has been an evolving product that has greatly improved with age. Not only have we learned how to improve on processing digital signals, but hardware and digital buses have also improved dramatically in the same time frame. The point is, while others were on the sideline, we were in the trenches, working hard to improve your inspection quality through advanced technology.
Just as we have advanced this technology over the past decade, our attitude today is no different. Continued improvements are always on the horizon.
Through innovation and vision, our new M-Series equipment line utilizes industry-standard data collection and digitizing hardware from National Instruments. With this technological development, we are now able to distribute the initial signal collection, immediately digitize and then pre-process the signals. By digitizing at the source and transmitting digital signals (not analog) via Ethernet connections, our equipment ensures the least amount of unwanted noise, producing the very best signals available for down-line evaluation with our Digi-Pro™ software.
A contemporary rack-mounted PC or rack-mounted server with the latest features and technical specifications is provided. The computer-operating platform is a Windows XP™ or Windows Server™ (depending upon your application). A large flat panel color LCD screen displays the test results for the operators’ evaluation.
PITCO’s Digi-Pro™ software features an on-screen trace-like chart presentation with up to 6 independent charts of data presented simultaneously in an analog strip-chart display format. Depending upon system configuration, users may choose up to 6 different charts for display that feature up to:
- Two (2) traces for transverse flaws
- Two (2) traces for longitudinal flaws
- Two (2) traces for wall thickness
- One (1) trace for grade comparison
The Digi-Pro™ user interface was a primary feature of our development team. Particular attention to detail was given to this interface in order to closely emulate current switches, buttons, functions, alarms, chart deck appearance, and data entry. The result is a software program that operates just as the pipe inspector does today. Your inspectors will find Digi-Pro™ is familiar in concept, simple to operate, and easy to set up and begin inspecting.
