High-Speed Data Acquisition And Automation
March 9, 2005
VVI today announced the release of DAQ Plot version 9.8.6, which
features plug-and-play high-speed data acquisition plotting and control
loop programming. John Brilhart, Chief Technical Officer of VVI, made
“DAQ Plot measures voltages from sensors and presents them in an
intuitive strip chart format. This new version upgrades its speed up to
50,000 voltage measurements per second. It also includes a new tool
called DAQ Command which is used to program real-time control loops to
automate voltage measurement and machine control. The two are
complimentary because DAQ Plot is used to visualize and understand
sensor results and once understood, DAQ Command is used to automate
reactions to those sensors, for example by turning off and on valves
and switches according to sensor voltage changes. The two systems, DAQ
Plot and DAQ Command, span the needs of data acquisition projects from
the beginning research and development phases to the end result of
system and product integration and automation.”
DAQ Plot version 9.8.6 adds these new features:
– DAQ Command, a programming system to make real-time control loops.
– Plug-and-play data acquisition up to 50,000 samples per second, with
higher rates obtainable by specialized hardware.
– A recording state input channel so recording can start and stop
according to an applied voltage or other real-time transform of an
input signal such as derivative or integration. This can be used to
trigger the recording of high-speed transient signals or simply to
allow for a manual toggle switch to start and stop recording.
– Real-time windowing of data, for example to window peaks in a signal
in order to integrate valid features.
– Performance meters to help determine how your computer is handling
the data acquisition at fast data rates.
– Dynamic switching of interface styles from simple to advanced.
