How To Connect and Calibrate Thermocouples Using DI-8B47 Series Amplifiers

Data Acquisition > Thermocouple Thanks to the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), thermocouple wire is color coded to indicate thermocouple type and polarity. This takes the guesswork out of connecting thermocouple wires to your DI-718B, DI-718Bx, or DI-788. In this example, we’ll show you how to connect and calibrate a K-type thermocouple using a DI-718B, 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

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

Displaying Digital Inputs in WinDaq

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq It’s come to our attention that there’s some confusion when it comes to enabling a digital channel and displaying digital input in WinDaq Data Acquisition Software. In this example, we’ll enable a digital channel, and show how digital inputs are displayed.  Follow Us

See the All-New Advanced CODAS Interface in Action

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq > Advanced CODAS Advanced CODAS is a waveform analysis package that adds sophisticated analysis functions, not otherwise available in the WinDaq Waveform Browser playback software.   Unchanged for a number of years, the Advanced CODAS interface has undergone a significant makeover. All of the features remain, but with a modern Read More

New Advanced CODAS User Interface

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq > Advanced CODAS DATAQ Instruments’ Advanced CODAS software is a versatile tool for analyzing WinDaq-recorded data files. The package offers waveform integration, differentiation, peak detection, and much more. It has a long history of revealing subtleties in acquired data, but has been hindered by a rather clumsy user interface. Read More

Convert GBD Files to WDH Format

Data Logger > Graphtec Our new GBD to WDH converter gives you the ability to convert GBD files, created using GL220, or  GL820 series instruments, to WDH format. Resulting WDH files can be opened in the WinDaq Waveform Browser for observation and analysis. For convenience, and to maintain 16-bit resolution, a high-res version of the WinDaq Read More

Reducing Sample Rates Even Further

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq Frustrated because you can’t sample as slowly as you’d like? Assuming that you want to acquire data any slower than a sample every 9 or 10 minutes, you’re likely bumping up against the minimum sample rate limit in WinDaq. To follow up on a recent blog post concerning slow Read More

Slow Sample Rates Explained

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq If you’re new to WinDaq and attempting to acquire data at rates less than 1 sample per second, it’s easy to get confused. This is especially true using multiplexed data acquisition systems. Choosing a sample rate above 1 sample per second is pretty straight forward. Say you want to Read More

Scaling Non-Zero Offsets With WINDAQ Software

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq It wouldn’t be unreasonable to assume that a transducer, at a resting state, would output zero volts. In reality, this is rarely the case. Fortunately, features in WinDaq allow you to scale non-zero offsets. Using real-world examples, our updated application note on the subject shows you how to factor in DC offsets Read More
