Our WinDaq/Pro, WinDaq/Pro+, and WinDaq/Lite data acquisition software packages offer real time display and disk streaming for the Windows environment. Their real time display can operate in a smooth scroll or triggered sweep mode of operation, and can be scaled into any unit of measure. Event markers with comments allow you to annotate your data acquisition session with descriptive information as you're recording to disk. Raise your productivity to new heights with their unique multitasking feature. Record waveform data to disk in the background while running any combination of programs in the foreground — even WinDaq Waveform Browser playback software to review and analyze the waveform data as it's being stored!

Explaining the Differences
Software Sample Rate
WinDaq/Lite WinDaq/Lite is a version of WinDaq/Pro that works at the full sample rate of the instrument for a single channel, but is restricted to a maximum throughput of 240 Hz when recording two or more channels.
WinDaq/Pro WinDaq/Pro features a sample rate that is only limited by the maximum sample rate of the hardware.
WinDaq/Pro+ In addition to WinDaq/Pro's features, WinDaq/Pro+ allows you to tailor sample different channels at different rates. This is done by entering a sample rate divisor value (1 to 255) for each channel.

Please Note: WinDaq/Pro and Pro+ versions support DI-720, DI-730, DI-722, DI-785, and DI-788 products. WinDaq/Lite supports all DATAQ Instruments Hardware except the DI-770, EL-USB products, DI-900MB products, and GL data loggers. Use WinDaq/HS for high speed data acquisition applications when using DI-149, DI-155, DI-710, DI-715B, DI-718B, and DI-718Bx products.

 

Sampling of WinDaq's Powerful Features:

(click on the pictures to view a larger image)

data acquisition setup

Setup

Double-click and enter the channels you want to acquire into the WinDaq scan list. Click to select gain, signal averaging, and peak or valley detection per channel. Click to define a single to 32-channel display, either triggered sweep (oscilloscope-like), or scrolling (chart recorder-like). Click again to define a sample rate ranging from less than one to 250,000 per second. With WinDaq/Pro+, you can even define different sample rates on a per channel basis.

calibrate data acquisition signals

Calibrate

Define a calibration per channel to display waveform values in meaningful units such as psi, °F or °C, amps, rpm, watts, horsepower — any unit of measure you need.

record data acquisition signals

Record

Choose the continuous waveform recording mode, or the triggered mode with selectable trigger level, slope and pre- and post-trigger times. WinDaq automatically time- and date-stamps, then streams acquired data to disk -- record as much data as you need. At the same time, WinDaq supplies a real-time graphical display of any or all channels so you always know where you are and where you're going. WinDaq allows you to record to disk up to 240 channels, and display up to any 32 at the same time.

annotate data acquisition waveforms

Annotate

Of course, you can label any channel with text that describes it — "Motor 1," "Engine Speed," "Vertical Position," etc. But WinDaq also allows you to supply commented event markers while you record - "Beginning test phase 1," "Small vibrations noticed," "Starting cool-down cycle," etc. Your comments and our acquired data combine to form a complete diary of your data acquisition session.

playback acquired data

Playback

Recording is only half the solution. The included WinDaq Waveform Browser playback software allows you to graphically manipulate waveforms in ways you've never seen on a PC. Compress an entire recording to one screen width for a bird's eye view, then expand around an area of interest for a closer look. Use cursors to measure amplitudes and timing with computer-precision. Move to any event marker with the click of a mouse button.

Multitask data acquisition tasks

Multitask

Double your productivity and let WinDaq record while you review last week's results from your spreadsheet, or compose a memo with your word processor. You can even playback data already stored to disk while you're still recording.

analyze data

Analyze

Waveform interpretation is easy with our built-in analysis functions. Apply frequency and filtering analysis with the WinDaq Waveform Browser FFT and DFT functions. Or analyze any range of waveform data with its statistics function. Use X-Y plotting to examine the relationship of one channel to another. Extended analysis functions allow waveform peak detection, integration, differentiation, arithmetic operations, and more.

export acquired data

Export

The WinDaq Waveform Browser can export any range of data to your spreadsheet, or any other analysis or presentation package you use. You can even copy a graphical image displayed by the WinDaq Waveform Browser and paste it directly into a word processing document. Finally, export any range of waveform graphics to your printer for a hard copy record.

Exclusive Heads-Up Display

From 1 to 32 channels. Smooth scrolling or triggered sweep with level, slope and source selections. Zero plot delay for true real time performance. Active to over 250,000 samples per second and during waveform recording to disk. Control plot speed independently of sample rate.

Floating Tool Box of Functions

Provides a tool box of icons that are used to customize and setup a recording session. The icons, when selected, provide an easy way to set variable parameters such a sample rate, channel settings, display mode, etc.

Gap-Free Disk Streaming

Creates data files limited in length only by the size of your disk.

Real-Time Scaling

Scales each waveform display channel in its own unit of measure.

WinDaq Waveform Browser Software Included Free

Review and analyze your recorded data with WinDaq Waveform Browser, our playback and analysis software included free with all WinDaq software packages. Complete multitasking capability means you can literally record to and analyze data from the same file at the same time.

Share Recorded Files with Anyone

Since WinDaq Waveform Browser Software may be Downloaded Free from our Web Site, any recorded data file may be easily shared with anyone, anywhere in the world.

Free WinDaq/Lite

We provide WinDaq/Lite software free with every hardware purchase that does not include WinDaq/Pro or WinDaq/Pro+ software.

WinDaq/XL

WinDaq/XL is a software add-on to WinDaq/Lite, /Pro and /Pro+ that allows data acquired by these packages to be ported to a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet in real time and on a continuous basis.

DADiSP

Extend your post processing waveform analysis capability with DADiSP software.
