Prop Scan Analysis is a marine propeller
software program that compares the measured
propeller to the optimum propeller design in accordance
with the ISO
484 Standards and the Prop
Scan EPS (Enhanced Propeller Standard).
Prop Scan Analysis
produces a Best Achieved Quality report
which assesses each aspect of the propeller and identifies the level
of accuracy for each aspect.
Analysis File Data
Prop Scan produces a data file that contains the quality critical aspects
of a measured propeller compared to the design.
This file is read by Prop Scan Analysis which processes the data and
produces a report.
Analysis Files Listing
The Prop Scan data is stored in the Prop Scan Analysis data base. This
data is in Prop Scan Analysis original form to allow for reports
to be produced in different formats.
Best Achieved Quality Report
In Bar Graph format a Best Achieved Quality report is produced
for each measurement category. This report is superimposed over a template
which represents the ISO
on Pitch Classes and Prop
Scan EPS giving an immediate indication of the propellers true quality
for each aspect.
ISO 484 Class Reports
Analysis supports ISO
S, 1, 2 & 3 tolerances on pitch for propeller pitch, blade pitch
and section pitch.
Prop Scan EPS Reports
Analysis supports Prop
Scan EPS Class 0 tolerances on pitch and Prop Scan EPS face Camber
tolerances on form.
Conforming Blocks Report
All the areas of a propeller that fall inside the specified tolerance
are represented by green Conforming Blocks. Non conforming areas
of the propeller are represented by a red block.
Conforming Block Expanded Report
Clicking a Conforming Block with the mouse activates a graph report that
shows the measured value, design value and the allowed tolerance
for the specified measured area in Bar Graph format.
Expanded Report Table
The Conforming Block Bar Graph is accompanied by a table that lists the
measured and design pitches, the pitch deviation from design and
the outside tolerance value.
One Page Report
The Analysis report is a one page report which covers all aspects of
the measured propeller compared to the design.
