DATAQ Instruments Application Notes and News

The Ability of the DI-245 to Reject Common Mode Voltage

Data Acquisition > Thermocouple > DI-245 The ability of the DI-245 to reject common mode voltage is unmatched in the $75 per channel price range. To demonstrate the ability of the DI-245 to reject common mode (error) voltage, we connected K-type thermocouples to channels 1 and 2. With the thermocouple on channel 2 grounded, we Read More

EL-WIFI-Alert Alarm Indicator

Data Logger > Wireless > EL-WiFi Series The stand-alone EL-WIFI-Alert alarm indicator is an add-on for EL-WIFI series temperature and humidity data loggers. The EL-WIFI-Alert produces an audible and visual alert when an alarm level on any of your EL-WIFI temperature and humidity data loggers (installed on the same wireless network) is breached. Note that Read More

4-20 mA Measurement Resolution

Data Acquisition > 4-20mA Current Loop Don’t overlook a vital component that affects 4-20 mA measurement success: Measurement resolution. Measurements from sensors that have a 4-20 mA output are very common. Customers always ask how to connect them to a data logger or data acquisition system, which we describe in detail here. However, they often overlook a vital Read More

How To Install Model DI-245 Under Windows XP

Data Acquisition > Voltage > DI-245 Since our new model DI-245 voltage, millivolt, and thermocouple data acquisition system was released after Microsoft very vocally discontinued support for Windows XP, the instrument is the first in a long while that does not natively support that operating system. We’ve since learned to our chagrin that Microsoft continues to Read More

Introducing the DI-245 Voltage and Thermocouple Data Acquisition System

Data Acquisition > Voltage > DI-245 DATAQ Instruments is pleased to introduce the all-new DI-245 Voltage and Thermocouple data acquisition system. The DI-245 provides four analog inputs that can be individually configured to measure voltage or thermocouple data.  With 12 programmable measurement ranges from ±50V to ±10mV, the DI-245 provides resolution up to 1.2µV. The DI-245 Read More

Lascar’s ‘Files Thru the Air’ Technology

Data Logger > Wireless Data Loggers > EL-WiFi Series Users can manage and monitor any number EL-WIFI series instruments remotely… Lascar’s ‘Files Thru the Air’ technology allows those using EL-WIFI series instruments to store data to the cloud. Users can manage and monitor any number EL-WIFI series instruments remotely, using a web browser on their PC Read More

The new DATAQ Instruments Forum

Data Acquisition > Support Tickets About a year ago DATAQ Instruments rolled out a new forum tied into our support ticket system. The ticket system and forum now use the same login. Recently we closed all new posts to the old forum at support.dataq.com. The old forum can still be browsed, but no new posts Read More

Discontinued Support for Windows XP

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq As you may have heard, Microsoft has discontinued support for Windows XP, effective April 8th, 2014. After a 12-year run, Microsoft will no longer release updates or security patches for the widely embraced operating system. Consequently, DATAQ Instruments will also end support for Windows XP. While we will continue Read More

Error Binding UDP Port 1234

Data Acquisition > Ethernet It’s come to our attention that some DI-720/730 Ethernet users are having trouble communicating with their instruments. Upon running the DATAQ TCP/IP Manager, users receive an error message stating that there is an “Error Binding UDP Port 1234” and that the IP Manager cannot continue. We are working hard to determine Read More

Boot Your Graphtec Data Logger in USB Drive Mode

Data Logger > USB > Graphtec An oft-overlooked feature of Graphtec data loggers is the ability to boot into USB Drive Mode. As the name implies, USB Drive Mode allows you to access, save, copy and delete files from your GL220, GL820, GL900, GL7000 or MT100, just as you would with a USB flash drive. Read More
