Q. Do I need to save data every time I measure pressure?

A.Digital data saving is recommended because Prescale will loss its accuracy as certain elements pose adverse affects.

Q. What will the upgrade kits provide?

A.They will upgrade software elements.

Q. Can I use a scanner with higher resolution?

A.No, the FPD-8010E is configured and guaranteed to operate with the recommended scanners only.

Q. Do you provide any maintenance service?

A.No, there is no need for regular maintenance. The FPD-8010E Series conduct calibration when you power up the system to check the characteristics change and deterioration of the scanner.

Q. Can I purchase only the system's software?

A.No. The FPD-8010E Series data can be utilized to prepare your own software run on other PCs. The information on structure of MPA file is disclosed for this purpose. Additionally, the components are required to calibrate and operate the system.

    Action: Install FPD8010E software. Then start and terminate FPD8010E. (Go to 1)
  2. FPD8010E software has not executed yet.
    Action 1: Start and terminate FPD8010E software. (Go to 1)
    Action 2: Select the installed FPD8010Win.exe and continue the following procedure.

Click the “OK” button to select the destination where the program file downloaded.
Select the executive file and click the “Open” button.
Go to 6 after finishing successfully.
Go to 9 if the selected file is not FPD8010Win.exe.

9. The following dialog is shown if the selected file is not FPD8010Win.exe.

10. Confirm if the update is completed correctly.

  1. 1.Confirm the version information after starting the application.
    Version is correct.
    Confirm the version information of 3D Analyzing software and Polar Coordinate software also.
  2. 2.Try “File” and “New” in the menu bar and confirm the function of scanning new data.

The following dialog will show after setting the scanning condition if the update was not completed correctly or the SP curve file is broken.

Scanning is not possible and only the “Cancel” button is accepted.

Update again.
Re-install FPD-8010E is necessary if re-update cannot solve the problem.
