New BETA version: RadiMation BETA version 2017.1.3

Post by joro »

We have released a new BETA version of the RadiMation software, which includes several improvements and fixes for problems that have been detected since the release of the 2016.2.10 version.
This version 2017.1.3 is still a BETA version but will probably become the new major version after it has been validated at DARE!! Measurements for two weeks. We do provide you this BETA version, so you can already start the validation, or you can review and test the changes that are included. We strongly advise to test and verify (according to your quality system) this and each new version of RadiMation at for example a separate PC or laptop with your setup and with your measurement equipment, before you are going to use it for daily operation.

The new BETA 2017.1.3 release of RadiMation can now be downloaded from the DARE!! web-site. Image

We always advise to thoroughly test EACH new RadiMation software version to determine if it works correctly in your situation with your equipment, before you use it for daily measurements. This is even a requirement for all ISO 17025 accredited test-labs. To enable customers to validate new software versions before they implement that new software version, we even made it possible to install multiple versions of RadiMation side-by-side on a single PC.

Known issues
We already are aware of 1 known issue in this version.
It is possible that during the startup of RadiMation the following dialog is shown, which states that the access to the 'ErrorModeFile.radilog' is denied. You can just click on 'Continue' and RadiMation will continue to work normally. This error message only influences the RadiLog program, but doesn't influence the behaviour of RadiMation.

If you have a problem or question, please do not hesitate to report it to us, so we can continue to improve RadiMation.

New functionality
We also include several improvements and new functionalities in version 2017.1.3, the most important improvements are:
  • Graphs filtering in multiband immunity, which fixes the overwriting graph problem
  • 1 Hz on/off software pulse modulation
  • New user interface for Sequence configuration window.
  • Several user interface and usability improvements.
  • Report generator fixes.
  • Better control of measurement equipment.
