DATAQ Instruments Application Notes and News

WinDaq Monitors Power Quality for an Electric Utility

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq WinDaq Data Acquisition Software and the DI-400 Monitor Power Quality for an Electric Utility Power utilities need to continuously monitor the quality of the electric power they generate. For one utility, this activity was performed by an array of strip chart recorders. Technology had moved on, however, and the Read More

Introducing the All-new EL-USB-TP-LCD Single-channel Thermistor Data Logger

Data Logger > Lascar > EL-USB Series DATAQ Instruments is happy to introduce the all-new EL-USB-TP-LCD, a single–channel thermistor data logger. With a -40 to +125°C (-40 to +257°F) measurement range, the included 1-meter thermistor probe has an accuracy of ±0.1°C (±0.2°F). Capable of storing up 32,510 readings, with sample intervals ranging from 1 second 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

Introducing the All-new EL-GFX-DTP Dual-channel Thermistor Data Logger

Data Logger > Lascar > EL-GFX Series DATAQ Instruments is pleased to introduce the all-new EL-GFX-DTP dual-channel thermistor data logger, with a -40 to +125°C (-40 to 257°F) measurement range. Capable of storing up to 250,000 readings at sample intervals between 2 seconds and 1 hour, the EL-GFX-DTP can acquire temperature data, unattended, for days, Read More

Introducing the All-new EL-USB-ACT AC/DC Current Data Logger

Data Logger > Lascar > EL-USB Series DATAQ Instruments is pleased to announce the availability of the all-new EL-USB-ACT. This low cost AC/DC current data logger is capable of taking current readings from 0 to 100 Amps DC (0 to 723 amps RMS) and can be used with a compatible current clamp, current transformers, hall-effect Read More

How To Make 4-20 mA Current Loop Measurements

Data Acquisition > Current Additional Reading: 4-20 mA Current Loop Data Logger Products 4-20 mA Current Loop Data Acquisition Products It seems that at least one 4-20 mA (milliamp) measurement is required by our typical customer, and the way to do it is a constant source of confusion for many. So I thought I’d zero 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

Performing a Periodic Reset of the Integral Function in Advanced CODAS

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq > Advanced CODAS When integrating a waveform using Advanced CODAS, the Periodic Reset feature allows you to reset the integral function after a user-specified period of time (number of data points). In this example, featuring the new Advanced CODAS user interface (in beta), we’ll integrate a flow rate waveform Read More

Perform a Level Reset While Integrating a Waveform Using Advanced CODAS

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq > Advanced CODAS The ‘Integral’ function in Advanced CODAS alloys you to perform a level reset when integrating a waveform. In this example we’ll integrate a flow rate waveform to derive flow volume, and reset the integral function at a specific level (3 gallons in this case).  Resetting the 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
