Display Tutorial

Our series of basic SoundCheck training instructional videos concludes with 7 short videos highlighting the different display options ranging from simply x-y graphs  and tables to polar plots, and display customization, and of course how to use all these options in a sequence.

Part 1: Display Step Basics
Part 2: Display Configuration
Part 3: Graph Palettes
Part 4: X-Y and Waveform Graphs
Part 5: Tables, Text and Pictures
Part 6: Results
Part 7: Polar Plot

Statistics Tutorial

Our series of instructional training videos continues with this series of 4 short videos explaining Statistics. These introduce the user to the statistics options in SoundCheck, and demonstrate how to use them in 4 different ways: in sequences, with results, Process Capability measurements, and offline statistics.

Statistics 1: Data
Statistics 2: Results
Statistics 3: Process Capability
Statistics 4: Offline

Recall Tutorial

A new series of 3 short videos guides the user through SoundCheck’s various recall capabilities. SoundCheck’s ‘recall’ functionality allows previously saved data to be brought back into SoundCheck where it may be used in test sequences, for example data from a golden unit, weighting/correction curves or limit curves.
The first video covers the basics, and the other two focus on recalling text files and wave files respectively.

Recall 1: The Basics
Recall 2: Recalling Text Files
Recall 3: Recalling Wave Files

Autosave Tutorial

This series of 6 training videos explains how to autosave data from SoundCheck in a variety of formats. The first video covers the basics, and the subsequent ones discuss the various autosave formats in more details.

Autosave 1: The Basics
Autosave 2: Autosave to Database
Autosave 3: Autosave to Excel
Autosave 4: Autosave to Matlab
Autosave 5: Autosave to Text
Autosave 6: Autosave to Wave

Creating and Using Custom VIs Tutorial

This training video provides an overview of how to create and use custom VIs. Custom VIs enable you to extend the capability of your SoundCheck system by

  • Programming your own highly customized tests which run within Soundcheck,
    which is useful if your device requires additional specific tests that fall
    outside of the SoundCheck test suite
  • Enabling SoundCheck to control other hardware devices and use them in test
    sequences, for example additional application-specific interfaces.

Note that the method is slightly different in SoundCheck version 16 and later versus version 15, so please view the video that corresponds to your SoundCheck installation.

Sequence Loops and Logic Tutorial

This series of 5 training videos explains how to use sequence loops and logic. Sequence loops and logic are extremely powerful features that can significantly reduce the time taken both to program and run tests. The first video walks you through the basics, then the following videos focus on 4 examples: Loop Stimulus Level, Polar Plot Measurements, Jump To Sections and Digital I/O.

Sequence Loops and Logic 1: The Basics
Sequence Loops and Logic 2: Loop Stimulus Level
Sequence Loops and Logic 3: Polar Plot Measurements
Sequence Loops and Logic 4: Jump To Sections
Sequence Loops and Logic 5: Digital I/O

Message Steps Tutorial

These 3 training videos provides guidance on how to use message steps in sequences. Message steps enable dialog between the sequence and either the operator or external devices. These fall into 3 categories, each with a short instructional video.

Part 1 – Operator Message steps
– messages between the sequence and operator, for example to advise the operator to do something, or to request the operator input a value or yes/no input.

Part 2 – External control messages
– messages that enable communication with external hardware such as DIOs and RS232 devices.

Part 3 – Listen Hardware Control messages
– messages that enable control over Listen and Portland Tool & Die hardware.

Analysis Editor Tutorials

These 5 short tutorials guide the user through the various tabs in the SoundCheck analysis editor. Note: The next tutorial will cover the remaining tabs and the available analysis algorithms.

Part 1 – Analysis Basics

Part 2 – Waveform Analyses

Part 3 – Curves

Part 4 – Time and Delay Analyses

Part 5 – Loose Particle Analysis
