Sample Up to 14.4 kHz in Stand-alone Mode

Data Logger > Stand-alone Thanks to single-level cell (SLC) technology, DATAQ Instruments stand-alone data loggers can once again sample at throughput rates up to 14,400 samples per second. Due to inconsistencies with older SD cards using multi-level cell (MLC) technology, we were forced to reduce the maximum stand-alone sample rate specification for DATAQ Instruments data Read More

Reducing Sample Rates Even Further

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq Frustrated because you can’t sample as slowly as you’d like? Assuming that you want to acquire data any slower than a sample every 9 or 10 minutes, you’re likely bumping up against the minimum sample rate limit in WinDaq. To follow up on a recent blog post concerning slow Read More

Slow Sample Rates Explained

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq If you’re new to WinDaq and attempting to acquire data at rates less than 1 sample per second, it’s easy to get confused. This is especially true using multiplexed data acquisition systems. Choosing a sample rate above 1 sample per second is pretty straight forward. Say you want to Read More

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
