Casting off with WinDaq Software and the DI-730

Data Acquisition > Voltage > DI-730 Sport fishermen would recognize the product immediately. Though this one was rigged to a metal tub filled with water, most fishermen are used to seeing the product attached to the bow of a bass boat where it allows the skipper to easily and quietly maneuver the boat for a Read More

A Closer Look At Advanced CODAS Software

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq > Advanced CODAS Advanced CODAS is a seamless software enhancement to WinDaq Waveform Browser playback and analysis software. Essentially a tool box of analysis functions, Advanced CODAS offers almost limitless flexibility in its approach to waveform analysis. This application note seeks to examine each Advanced CODAS analysis function in Read More

A Closer Look at the Advanced CODAS Peak Capture Algorithm

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq > Advanced CODAS Versatile data analysis software package offers automatic detection and convenient reporting of critical cyclic waveform information. Any continuous periodic waveform represents a variety of desirable information, such as the beginning and end points of a cycle, the minimum, maximum, or mean signal values within the cycle, Read More

A Closer Look At The Advanced CODAS Moving Average Algorithm

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq > Advanced CODAS Versatile moving average in Advanced CODAS algorithm filters waveform noise, extracts mean, and eliminates baseline drift. The moving average is a simple mathematical technique used primarily to eliminate aberrations and reveal the real trend in a collection of data points. You might be familiar with it Read More

A Closer Look At The WinDaq Derivative Algorithm

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq The derivative is a mathematical tool used to obtain the rate of change from any given function. When the function to be differentiated is expressed as an equation, we would apply the appropriate derivative formula to attain the rate of change in a similar equation format. When the function Read More

A Closer Look at Waveform Integration with Advanced CODAS

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq > Advanced CODAS Mathematics has relied on the integration function for centuries as an aid to understanding the interrelationships of physical measurements. For example, an integral (or area under the curve) function can be applied to achieve units transformation. A velocity equation may be integrated to derive an equation Read More

DI-730 Data Acquisition System Aids Moon Roof Design and Qualification

Data Acquisition > Voltage > DI-730 It was a good, long run, but the strip chart recorder our customer had used for years was finally being replaced with a state-of-the-art PC-based data acquisition system. The recorder had become unreliable, and the paper records were tedious to analyze, and difficult to archive. The only problem was Read More

WinDaq Cuts Maintenance Costs in Steel Mill

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq A steel mill customer wanted to predict bearing failure in the huge ladles they use for pouring molten steel since unscheduled shutdowns greatly complicate the repair process and significantly increase maintenance costs. The ladle is placed on a turret and filled with molten steel. The turret, riding on the Read More

Export-to-Excel Add-on Beta for WinDaq Waveform Browsers

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq Ask customers what they want to do with acquired data, and the vast majority answer, “Take it to Excel.” Although our WinDaq Playback software has always supported an Excel-compatible CSV export option, the process was cumbersome and not very flexible. We fixed that. DATAQ Instruments is proud to announce Read More

Demonstrating the Power of Advanced CODAS – A Real-World Example

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq > Advanced CODAS We’ve touched on several features of Advanced CODAS, demonstrating the ease with which you can integrate, differentiate, and peak detect waveforms without leaving the WinDaq Waveform Browser. In this example we’ll break down a real-world application, demonstrating how several Advanced CODAS functions are used in concert Read More
