MERLIN PLUS DESIGNER
PROGRAMMING TOOL FOR THE MERLIN PLUS FAMILY
Merlin Plus DesignerTM is a stand-alone software tool that can be used to create customized pages dedicated to Merlin PlusTM, Merlin Plus BoxTM and Merlin Plus SoftwareTM in measurement cycles.
Merlin DesignerTM will give the possibility of:
- choosing among shapes, pictures, various measuring bar formats, statistical charts and graphs
- associating items to cycle events (e.g. start or end step, measure status etc.)
- binding an element to a characteristic or a step or a Part Program
- applying specific pages per each step
- applying a specific summary page to show the cycle results
In this way, the operator is guided through the measurement procedure avoiding errors and keeping production under control.
A number of templates which are easily modified are available to be used as a reference whilst new pages are being designed.
The measuring pages are saved using XML standard markup language and it is possible either to create these files in the same environment of the Merlin Plus or to copy them from outside.Documentation and tutorials are available to make operations even easier.
