Posted by Venay Sehgal Bhatia on Jun 19, 2016

wincan_vx.jpgAs the world's most advanced inspection crawler, ROVVER X captures digital video and images, and lets you classify and measure defects. But if you're not organizing, analyzing and sharing that data, you're not realizing the full potential of your investment.

Industry-leading WinCan VX software comes standard with every new ROVVER X system, giving you the power to database your inspections, deliver detailed reports, share projects with distributable viewer software, visualize your data on GIS maps, and achieve PACP certification.

Learn how to import inspection data from your ROVVER X pendant to WinCan VX using this step-by-step guide.

Verify that your version of WinCan VX is up to date. Your version number is located in the title bar of WinCan VX. It should match the latest release version number shown on www.wincan.com. If not, make sure to download and install the most current version before proceeding.

Next, make sure the license you are working with will allow you to import data from the ROVVER X control pendant. To do this, go to the home tab, where the license information appears on the right hand side of the screen. You may need to expand the License tree to see full details. You are looking for [IM Miraclixx Import], as shown in the image.

Once the WinCan VX software version and license are both verified, you can start the import process.

First, select the Data Exchange Tab, then click the Import button. This will open the WinCan VX Data Exchange Wizard.

After selecting the project, you will need to specify the target WinCan VX project. This can be a new project (enter a project name in the available field), or you can choose to import into an existing project by checking the corresponding box.

When creating a project using feet as the unit of measurement, check the box that prompts conversion of meters to feet.

Click NEXT.

(If you click FINISH instead, the project will import according to the control pendant’s preset PACP standard, typically an older version like 4.)

The last step is to select the template you wish to work with. When selecting the catalog, the template will automatically match up. Make sure you select to match with the screen shot below (Currently PACP/LACP/MACP 6). Then click FINISH.

The wizard will now close and your project will be added to the CCTV inspection list on the left-hand side of WinCan VX. To open the project, simply click the project name.

You have now successfully imported the data collected on the ROVVER X pendant into WinCan VX.
