DATAQ Instruments Application Notes and News

An Easy Test for Line Noise…

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq …and it’s Almost Always Line Noise 50/60 Hz line sources abound in conductive and radiated states to create noise in your most carefully-crafted measurements, but sometimes it isn’t obvious that they’re the culprit. At low sample rates line noise can morph into alias frequencies that bear no resemblance to Read More

4-20 mA Current Loop Measurement Resolution Calculations Made Easy

Data Acquisition > Current I estimate that 20-30 percent of measurements made by our customers are from 4-20 mA current loop sensors and systems. If you draw a blank after reading this first sentence, see this and this for some 4-20 mA background information. One question that arises quite often is how to calculate measurement Read More

New Engineering Units Beta Software Going Once…

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq Our Engineering Units beta software has been available for nearly a week and nary a peep has been heard from those who downloaded it. We take this to be either a very good sign, or our customer’s don’t even know where to begin with their criticism. We know that Read More

The New ‘Engineering Unit Settings’ Calibration Method

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq Take a couple minutes and check out this demonstration of our new ‘Engineering Unit Settings’ calibration method. You can perform a two-point calibration to display engineering units (lbs, psi, ect.), or set an offset. Want to try it out for yourself? Download the beta software at: www.dataq.com/DATAQ_EU_SETTINGS.zip (no longer Read More

Download New Engineering Units Settings Beta Software

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq WinDaq Playback and Recording software executables that embrace the new Engineering Units definition approach are available at our website. The download is a ZIP file containing new .EXEs that replace the current versions you run, complete details on how to install them, and instructions for how to use the Read More

New Engineering Units Settings Dialog Box Availability

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq We apologize for the delay getting the beta of our new Engineering Units scaling approach out to those who have agreed to test it. Those customers should expect an email from us by early next week if not sooner. We drastically underestimated the amount of internal debate that accrued Read More

Answer Four Questions to Define Your Data Logger Product

Data Logger > Products Hardly a day that goes by that we don’t receive an inquiry for a data logger or data acquisition system that goes something like this: We are looking to add a data logger system to our production line and would like to have a system able to record data in real Read More

Engineering Units Scaling and “Set Offset”

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq In the previous post we introduced our new WinDaq Engineering Units Scaling dialog box and solicited users for advice and guidance before making it a permanent part of the application. The new approach incorporated a Set Zero button that provided a simple way to compensate for sensors that exhibit Read More

Help Us Out– New Engineering Unit Settings Dialog Box

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq Help Us Out We’re looking for customers to test this new WinDaq software approach for defining engineering units and give us their opinions. Currently the new code is available only for starter kits, so anyone with a DI-194(RS), -154RS, -148U, -148U-SP, -158U, -158UP, -145, -149, or DI-155 qualifies. To Read More
