Test & Measurement software
Acquire data from multiple sources at varying data rates. Acquire high speed streaming data from high speed devices without a problem.
Easily convert and process your data in engineering units. Advanced analysis and data manipulation makes real-time results attainable.
Use the powerful scripting engine to create test scripts, controlling outputs while constantly recording inputs. Combine with automated analysis routines for a complete end-to-end test suite.
Log data in batches for each test, or log continuously. Create separate logs for subsets of your data, or log to multiple places at the same time. Conditionally log based on input values to only record important data.
Make changes on the fly: no need to stop your test or measurements every time you want to add a new screen element or make a tweak to script.
The scripting language is powerful enough to do both the batch control of the test and the analysis of the data. Results of the test can be displayed on user definable screens using any of the 40+ screen components created with simple drag and drop and properties windows. For longer running tests, DAQFactory's on-the-fly editing capability means you can add an additional input, graph or other display element without having to stop and restart your test. Of course all the data can be logged to the standard CSV file format, other ASCII delimited formats, ODBC databases, or create your own. For added fun, have DAQFactory email you the results of the tests once a day!
One example of DAQFactory being used in for test and measurement is to test the foot throttle assemblies on electric golf carts. The DAQFactory application drives a stepper through the full range of the throttle and back, all the while reading the resistance across the potentiometer in the throttle. The results are plotted on screen along with threshold values, then the system automatically compares the results to the preset thresholds, displaying the result for each. It then changes the screen background to red or green depending on the overall pass/fail result. Of course all the data and results are logged. The whole test is run in about 3 seconds, taking and analyzing over 8000 data points.
