Setting Up the FAB
Initial FAB setup includes obtaining the correct hardware and installing the DB Admin software, which only operates with a Windows operating system. The FAB connects to DB Admin through a USB connection to your computer. DB admin stores the data collected from fabric testing and syncs automatically with VStitcher and Lotta. Additional setup includes material preparation.
Setting up the FAB includes the following steps:
The FAB system requirements are:
CPU: i3, i5, i7 processor (4th generation or later)
OS: 64 bit Windows 10
RAM: 4 GB or higher
Disk space: 256 GB or more
Hardware: At least one USB port to connect the FAB
The FAB requires DB Admin.
The software is available here.
Install the software before setting up the equipment.
For more information, refer to DB Admin Setup.
To set up the equipment:
Put the FAB on a flat, rigid surface in a stable environment. For example, avoid drafts, vibration, and excessive dust.
Connect the FAB to the mains outlet. Ensure the on-off switch is off.
Connect the FAB to your computer (where DB Admin is installed) using the supplied USB cable and the USB port at the back of the FAB.
Turn the FAB on-off switch to on. If properly set up, both the power indicator light and the device connected indicator light on the FAB should light up.
Keep fingers away from the FAB while testing is in progress.
- Keep sleeves, jewelry, and hair away from moving parts.
Always close the clamps before calibrating the machine.
Do not adjust the stopper (12) and fixed clamp base plate, due to the sensitivity of the mechanism.
- If preferred, you can replace the round-shaped tightening knobs with the supplied wing-shaped knobs spare set provided. (For old clamps only)
- When the machine is out of the box, you need to move the movable bar closer to the fixed clamp before performing the first calibration test.
Browzwear Cloud License, the cloud service through which your organization can manage its licenses for Browzwear software, does not currently support DB Admin.
To add, modify, or delete fabrics in DB Admin you must either:
Have a valid dongle with the same database ID as the database you want to edit, or
Use a database key. For more information, refer to Generating the Database Key.
