  • Infinity QS Export

    good morning folks....we have a data collection system called Infinity Qs. Just wondering if there are any users on the board that use this as well and have any tips for exporting data from PCDMIS. By the way...we are using version 4.2 MR. WE haven't tried anything yet but kinda looking for info before i start pullling my hair out.

    thanks in advance

      We use Infinity QS. I send the data from the dimensions from my CMM programs using WRITE commands at the end of my programs like this:
      FPTR =FILE/OPEN,C:\CMM DATA\TRANSFERLINE\TRANSFERLINE.TXT,WRITE
      FILE/WRITE_BLOCK,FPTR,D1.X.MEAS + ","
      FILE/WRITE_BLOCK,FPTR,D2.X.MEAS + ","
      FILE/WRITE_BLOCK,FPTR,D3.Y.MEAS + ","
      FILE/WRITE_BLOCK,FPTR,D4.Z.MEAS + ","
      FILE/WRITE_BLOCK,FPTR,D5.X.MEAS + ","
      FILE/WRITE_BLOCK,FPTR,D6.Y.MEAS + ","
      FILE/WRITE_BLOCK,FPTR,D7.Z.MEAS + ","
      FILE/WRITE_BLOCK,FPTR,D8.X.MEAS + ","
      FILE/WRITE_BLOCK,FPTR,D9.X.MEAS + ","
      FILE/WRITE_BLOCK,FPTR,D10.M.MEAS + ","
      FILE/WRITE_BLOCK,FPTR,D11.Z.MEAS + ","
      FILE/WRITE_BLOCK,FPTR,D12.X.MEAS + ","
      FILE/WRITE_BLOCK,FPTR,D13.Y.MEAS + ","
      FILE/WRITE_BLOCK,FPTR,D14.Z.MEAS + ","
      FILE/WRITE_BLOCK,FPTR,D15.X.MEAS + ","
      FILE/WRITE_BLOCK,FPTR,D16.Y.MEAS + ","
      FILE/WRITE_BLOCK,FPTR,D17.Z.MEAS + ","
      FILE/WRITE_BLOCK,FPTR,D18.Z.MEAS + ","
      FILE/WRITE_BLOCK,FPTR,D19.Y.MEAS + ","
      FILE/WRITE_BLOCK,FPTR,D20.X.DEV + ","
      FILE/WRITELINE,FPTR,
      FILE/CLOSE,FPTR,KEEP

      Each dimension is separated by a comma and the second to last command "FILE/WRITELINE,FPTR," was necessary to but a hard return into the txt file so infinity could pull in the file. (don't know why it's necessary just know that it is)

      I'm not sure how the infinity side of things work. We have another person who take my txt files and tells infinity what to do with them. We've been running things this way for the last 4 or 5 years and it works well.

        There is a Infinity QS PC-DMIS direct importer. Straight from PC-DMIS. Works like a charm. Call Infinity. Costs around $900. Money well spent! If you need help setting it up, PM me and I will try to be of help.

        Note: ask your IT department if they use the IT logon's also for Infinity. If yes, this will make your life extremely easy. If not, you'll see some problems along the way. Nothing serious though...

            Infinity QS did not have an auto importer in the past. They do now have a direct importer like Jan says.
            I used to be high on life but I built up a tolerance.

              That direct importer is slick. I worked at a place that must have been the first to start pushing for it back in the late 90's. We tested beta and provided feed back, after a few tweaks it worked great. I had to laugh when they started selling it... anything to make a buck I guess.
