Using a Low-Pass Filter to Clean Up Noisy Signals

Often, you’ll need to acquire signals at very high sample rates. Higher sample rates allow you to capture voltage transients, or events that occur in a very short period of time. And since all channels in WinDaq are sampled at the same rate, you might get the results you’re looking for on some channels, and Read More

Convert and Combine WinDaq Files in Microsoft Excel Format

Getting data into Microsoft Excel format is one of the most common customer requests. Often times customers are dealing with numerous data files, and the prospect of manually converting those files, one-by-one, into .CSV format. Fortunately, the software engineering team here at DATAQ has a solution! In conjunction with the WINDH32.EXE (WinDaq Waveform Browser), the 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

A Closer Look At The Advanced CODAS Moving Average Algorithm

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq > Advanced CODAS Versatile moving average in Advanced CODAS algorithm filters waveform noise, extracts mean, and eliminates baseline drift. The moving average is a simple mathematical technique used primarily to eliminate aberrations and reveal the real trend in a collection of data points. You might be familiar with it Read More

A Closer Look At The WinDaq Derivative Algorithm

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq The derivative is a mathematical tool used to obtain the rate of change from any given function. When the function to be differentiated is expressed as an equation, we would apply the appropriate derivative formula to attain the rate of change in a similar equation format. When the function Read More

A Closer Look at Waveform Integration with Advanced CODAS

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq > Advanced CODAS Mathematics has relied on the integration function for centuries as an aid to understanding the interrelationships of physical measurements. For example, an integral (or area under the curve) function can be applied to achieve units transformation. A velocity equation may be integrated to derive an equation 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

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

Filter Out High Frequency Noise Using the Moving Average Feature in Advanced CODAS

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq > Advanced CODAS The Moving Average function in Advanced CODAS allows you to filter out high frequency noise from lower frequency periodic waveforms (a Low-pass filter) or eliminate a drifting baseline when acquiring high frequency waveforms (a High-pass filter). In this example, featuring the new Advanced CODAS GUI, we’ll Read More
