More power over the data collection process is now in your hands


Use Python scripting in the GainSeeker Suite platform to create an inspection process that is maximized to meet the needs or your organization.

New capabilities in SP 8.4.1 enhance the recently released Inspection Editor and PC Collect modules. These modules provide a visual design environment that makes it easy for you to build customized data collection and inspection processes. Now, we’ve made it easier to design them to fit your unique needs.

PC Collect integrates with other systems, devices, and files

PC Collect can now be integrated with other systems, devices, and files. You can now better optimize the actions and behavior of the inspection. Putting these capabilities in your hands lowers the cost of ownership and creates greater efficiency and accuracy in the inspection creation and data collection process.

These new capabilities are implemented with Python, a widely taught and easy to use scripting language. Using this common scripting language, you can now optimize your own collection scenarios. You can also tap in to Hertzler’s library of device, file, and data systems integration techniques. Hertzler’s technical staff is also available to support customization efforts.
