Medical Research using WinDaq

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq Data acquisition hardware and software offer unique waveform storage and analysis features particularly useful for medical research applications. WinDaq in tandem with Advanced CODAS analysis software has been applied in a wide range of medical research (MR) applications; a market segment notoriously demanding in both price and performance. An Read More

DI-730 Tackles Tough Industrial Measurements

Data Acquisition > Voltage > DI-730 Imagine this measurement environment: Simultaneous measurements of 400+ source volts and 50 millivolt current shunts that are hundreds of volts off-ground. Now imagine trying to make this measurement against the background noise of SCRs chopping the motor supply at a 10 kHz rate. Traditional PC-based instrumentation vaporizes in this Read More

University of Akron FSAE

Data Acquisition > Mixed Measurements DATAQ Instruments, Inc. is a proud sponsor of the¬†University of Akron FSAE team. Each year University of Akron mechanical engineering students design a small Formula SAE car and compete with other Universities across the country. DATAQ Instruments’ data acquisition products help them come up with new innovations and designs as Read More

Thermocouple Assembly

Data Acquisition > Thermocouple Follow these instructions to connect a thermocouple to your miniature connector: Unscrew and remove the top of the miniature connector. Remove the rubber washer from the miniature connector and slide it over the tip of the thermocouple wire. Partially loosen the inside screws. Insert the wires under the appropriate screws and Read More

Electromyogram (EMG) Waveform Analysis Software with Advanced CODAS

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq > Advanced CODAS With the advent of data acquisition systems, acquiring data from real-world applications has never been easier, more accurate, or more reliable. Once acquired, the data file can be examined and analyzed just as easily. In some applications, the data requires little or no analysis. Simply reviewing Read More

Detecting Relay Chatter in Rocket Launch Vehicles

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq Imagine the vibrations you’d encounter as you were launched into space by a rocket. Now imagine how these vibrations can affect on-board control circuits. Since the failure of even one such component during launch can be both costly and tragic, engineers strive to simulate as much of the mission Read More

Learn the Importance of Isolation In Four Easy Lessons

Data Acquisition > Voltage The concept of isolation when applied to¬†instrumentation can be difficult to grasp for many who do not have formal instrumentation training or experience. Yet, an understanding of what it is, why it’s important, and when you need it, is fundamental for safe and productive measurements in so many measurement applications. This Read More

Secrets For Successful High Speed Data Acquisition

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq (Originally Published In Measurement & Control Magazine April, 1999) Spreadsheets, word processing, data bases, web browsers, servers, email, flight simulators, Doom™ — of all the jobs we make our personal computers do, none tasks them more than high speed, real time data acquisition. No application will more quickly reveal Read More

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
