Overview
SINCORDER COMPANION was written to aid all those who use the M. C. Miller
SINCORDER. This program is intended 0NLY as an aid for the experienced
Cathodic Protection practitioner.
SINCORDER COMPANION is designed to help the Corrosion Engineer or
Technician with receiving data from the SINCORDER, transferring prompt flies to
the SINCORDER, remote operation, formatting data for use with spread sheet
programs, and graphing and evaluating close interval survey data. SINCORDER
COMPANION is designed using the windows graphical user interface utilizing the
mouse pointer, check boxes and speed buttons so that little prior computer
knowledge is required. The operation is documented with an on line help system.

Communications
This module has been designed to provide a more effective way to communicate
with the SINCORDER through the RS232C Port than with the use of generalpurpose communication programs. You may communicate either by modem over
the telephone lines or directly by plugging the SINCORDER RS232C cable into
the serial port of your personal computer.
The communication module supports receiving data from the SINCORDER,
sending data to the SINCORDER and remote operation of the SINCORDER from
your PC keyboard.

Sincorder File Conversion
This module is designed to convert the SINCORDER ASCII output to a format that
can be loaded directly into a spreadsheet program such as LOTUS 123,
Symphony and others that will accept the standard comma delineated ASCII file
input. This module places the header, text, and DESCRIPTORS in quotes" " and
moves the DESCRIPTORS to the right of the data. You can then import the
SINCORDER DATA into the spreadsheet. In Lotus 123 you would use the
following commands. / File Import Numbers Filename.PRT. Please refer to your
application program documentation for details on importing ASCII Files.
When you enter the Conversion Module you will be presented with the following
screen:
Click on the type of conversion you desire from the selection panel.
- 14 -
SEPARATE SINCORDER FILES
If you had more than one file in the SINCORDER you can use this option to
separate them into individual files. Select this option and the program will prompt
you to enter the name of the source file. The file must have the extension .SDR.
The SINCORDER COMPANION Communication Receive function writes all files
with the .SDP extension.
You are then prompted for the output file name. This file will also have an
extension of .SDR. The output prompt will be repeated until all files have been
separated. The original file will remain intact for further processing if necessary.
NOTE: DO NOT name an output file the same as the input file or an Exception will
occur arid you may LOSE your data (FOREVER). If the filename is less than eight
characters long a number 0-9 will be appended to help prevent this from
happening.
Logger Files
If the Separate utility is used on a LOGGER tile a different result is obtained. . A
minimum of two files will be created. The first will be the Header Data, i.e.
MC MILLER SINCORDER
VERSION 1.0 11/86
SERIAL NUMBER:
1199
Etc.
Each additional file will be the data between page breaks.
You can then use the Logger Data Conversion on each file and then import them
into a spreadsheet where you want them. You can also use the DOS Command
- 15 -
COPY filel.prn + file2.prn + file3.prn + file4.prn filename.prn to recombine the
files.
TRIGGER DATA SINGLE MODE
This option converts a single mode SINCORDER file to be imported into a
spreadsheet as a standard ASCII file. The program prompts for the input file name
and then writes an output file with the .PRN extension.
TRIGGER DATA MULTIPLE MODE
This option converts a multiple mode SINCORDER file to be imported into a
spreadsheet as a standard ASCII file. The program prompts for the input file name
and then writes an output file with the .PRN extension.
LOGGER DATA
This option converts a logger mode SINCORDER file to be imported into a
spreadsheet as a standard ASCII file. The program prompts for the input file name
and then writes an output file with the .PRN extension.
It may be useful to separate the file before it is converted.
DOWNLOAD DATA SINGLE MODE
- 16 -
This option converts a Single Mode SINCORDER Download Data file to be
imported into a spreadsheet as a standard ASCII file. The program prompts for the
input file name and then writes an output file with the .PRN extension.
DOWNLOAD DATA MULT MODE
This option converts a Multiple Mode SINCORDER Download Data file to be
imported into a spreadsheet as a standard ASCII file. The program prompts for the
input file name and then writes an output file with the .PRN extension.

Interrupted Close Interval Survey
This module was designed to process Interrupted Close Interval Survey data that
has been recorded with the SINCORDER. The data can then be presented as a
printed graph or a video graph. A data list with on potentials, off potentials, survey
stations, and remarks can be generated. An exception table can be printed to
show off readings that fall above or below a specified value. The following
conventions must be followed in order for this module to function properly.
MODE: MULTIPLE
INTERVAL SPACING MUST BE ONE OF THE FOLLOWING:
2 1/2, 5, 10, 20, 50, OR 100 FOOT (1,2,3,5,10 METRES)
ENTER a flag as a DESCRIPTOR every 100 FT, (30,50,60,75 or 100 METRES)
using symbols /, /f or /F to indicate a flag.
ENTER a station update as a DESCRIPTOR using the symbol /M followed by the
new station number. ie. /M 105+21. When the program encounters this, it will start
renumbering the output at this (105+21) new station number.
ENTER a jump update as a DESCRIPTOR using the symbol /J followed by the
number of feet to be jumped. ie. /J 100. When the program encounters this, it will
add this amount (100 feet) to the previous station number.
NOTE: Do not use these symbols and letters for any other purpose.

enough, or a flag inserted if one was left out. Every effort should be made in the
field to enter the flag symbol at the proper place as such editing DECREASES the
validity of the survey.
If you select Pipeline Stations are in Metres the form will change to the following:
