Product Application Engineering

VOTES Infinity Application Engineering Services leverage our extensive engineering expertise to assist our customers in quickly and easily making the transition to a new diagnostic system. This enables users to almost immediately realize the value of the VOTES Infinity System. Application Engineering Services are typically performed over a two-week period on site. Elements of the service include:


NETWORK DATABASE SETUP

The VOTES Infinity System uses a central database to which users connect when preparing for a test or when analyzing data. While the customer’s IT group generally installs the network database, this is accomplished using detailed instructions provided by Crane Nuclear, in compliance with any internal IT network permissions required by the customer. Our engineers will be available at each step of the process.


DATABASE POPULATION AND SIGSOFT IMPORT

Once the network database is installed, Crane Nuclear will configure and populate the database, organize all Signature Software data, and import it to the database.

SETPOINT CALCULATION REVIEW AND UPDATE

Crane Nuclear will review existing setpoint calculations to evaluate any impact caused by the new VOTES Infinity System accuracies, and update the calculations as required. In most cases, VOTES Infinity accuracies are slightly better than previous systems and no changes to the setpoints are necessary.

TEST PROCEDURE UPDATE

Our engineers will review existing test procedures, consequently either updating them or creating new VOTES Infinity-specific procedures based on the existing ones.

CUSTOM REPORT AND TOOLBAR REPORT DEVELOPMENT

Crane Nuclear will migrate existing reports to VOTES Infinity and develop Toolbar reports for use during testing. Setpoint criteria used in the reports will be populated in the database for each valve. The reports and criteria will be independently verified by Crane Nuclear.

SENSOR REVIEW

Our engineers will audit the customer inventory of sensors and peripheral devices for compatibility with VOTES Infinity, offering recommendations for replacing or augmenting with new cabling or devices designed to enhance and improve the customer-experience.
