VITALS Software 3.4 (Valve Information Tracking and Logging System) equips an operator to exercise, record critical valve information and GPS position valve location to be synchronized between the HC-100 handheld controller and your desktop GIS. Custom valve ID information is recorded such as the number of turns, maximum torque and valve location while exercising the valve with E.H. Wachs ERV-750 or TM-7 to manage valve performance and prevent costly repairs.

Important: This HC-100 controller requires Vitals Desktop 3.4.2 or later. Data transfer with older versions will cause data loss. Install Vitals 3.4.2 from the included CD or download Vitals from website.

VITALS Diagnostics 3.4.5


Updated 1/16/2017

Fixes

  • Diagnostics 3.4.2 does not connect to machines which have the newer boards with firmware 1.02.
  • Diagnostics 3.4.5 fixes this issue. If the circuit board on the machine has a label with P/N: 79-301-01 and FW: 1.02, then it is the newer board.

Instructions

Download the file and copy it to the Vitals Mobile folder in the handheld controller. You will get a prompt message asking if you want to overwrite the original file, click yes.

 


VITALS 3.4.2


Updated 12/1/2015

Fixes

Vitals Desktop
  • Fixed issue with error message showing up after doing a Data Transfer in both English and Chinese languages.
  • Fixed issue with error message showing up after clicking Customize Data Fields in Chinese language.
Vitals Mobile
  • Fixed issue with fields not displaying data in activity window.
  • Vitals Mobile 3.4.1 Removed development log function. Log file would eventually cause the handheld to run out of memory. The log would intermittently pause the machine during operation. Logging functionality was accidentally left ON from Beta testing.

See change log for more details.

  • ValveID field was empty for activities saved in Vitals Desktop. Too many characters entered into ValveID field (over20). Fixed by having a limit of 20 characters in Vitals Mobile.
