Device Drivers and Device IDs

  Windows Version
Hardware 95 98 NT ME 2000 XP Vista

All Serial Devices1

N/A Same as XP N/A

It is not necessary to specify DeviceDriver for these products

DeviceID = "COMnn DeviceName BaudRate"2

nn=COM port number3

(see footnotes below for an example)

N/A

DI-148, DI-158, DI-710, DI-715B, and DI-718B USB versions1

It is not necessary to specify DeviceDriver for these products

DeviceID = "COMnn DeviceName BaudRate"2

nn=COM port number3

(see footnotes below for an example)

DI-220, DI-221, and DI-222

DeviceDriver = DI22nNT.DLL

DeviceID = n

n = LPT#

DI-400, DI-401, and DI-410

Device Driver = DI40nNT.DLL

DeviceID = n

n=WinRT virtual device # 4

DI-710, DI-715B, and DI-718B, and DI-718Bx Ethernet versions

DeviceDriver = DI6nnNT.DLL

nn =0 to 39 are reserved

40 to 69 for DI-710-E, DI-715B-E instruments

70-99 for DI-718B-E and DI-718Bx instruments5

 

DeviceID = IP address (example "192.168.1.0")

or

DeviceID = IP address:Port (for Remote Devices - example "192.168.1.0:10001")

DI-720/730/740/760-EN

DeviceDriver = DI8nnNT.DLL

DeviceID = IP address (example "192.168.1.0")

nn = the order of WinDaq/IP installation - look in c:\windows\tpdataq.ini

DI-500/510/720/730/740/750/760-P

DeviceDriver = DI50nNT.DLL

DeviceID = n

n = LPT#

N/A

DI-720/730/740/760-USB

N/A

Same as XP

N/A

DeviceDriver = DI72nNT.DLL

n =DeviceID = USB ID of the device

DI-700

N/A

Same as XP

N/A

DeviceDriver = DI70nNT.DLL

n = DeviceID = USB ID of the device

 

 1The DI-148U, DI-158U/UP, and DI-71x USB versions all use a virtual COM port. Some products use a virtual COM port even though they may have an alternate interface connection (like USB). Such products use the serial port device driver and ID. For a list of devices using a Virtual COM Port see Virtual COM Ports.

2DeviceName = Model number of the device. BaudRate = the baud rate. For a listing of baud rates see Baud Rate. For Example: For a DI-158U installed at COM 2 with 38400 Baud the DeviceID = "COM2 158 38400".

3As specified during installation of the device. COM port numbers of 01 to 99 are supported. Example: For a Serial device installed to COM 1 the DeviceDriver=DI101NT.DLL. Go to Virtual COM Ports for instructions on finding the correct COM port.

4Virtual Device # can be found in c:\Windows\tpdataq.ini, or at the end of the WinDaq installation.

5The order of WinDaq/IP installation - look in title bar of WinDaq Acquisition when running device or check your installation directory for file(s) named WDQDK6nn.EXE.
