Save Select Channels as a New WinDaq File

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq Perhaps you’re using WinDaq data acquisition software to record a file containing 10 or 20 channels of data. Now suppose you’re sending that file to a colleague, who is really only interested in two of those channels. Your colleague now has to dig through the file, looking for the Read More

DAQ Starter Kit Helps Win Science Fair Competition

Data Acquisition > Start Kits DATAQ Instruments makes data acquisition hardware (usually a DAQ starter kit) and software donations from time to time to young people who demonstrate the need for a particular measurement that we can satisfy. Examples are measurements in school projects, science fairs, and even Ph.D theses. We recently learned that two 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

Intelligent Oversampling Enhances Data Acquisition

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq Editor’s note: Watch our YouTube videos for in-depth Intelligent Oversampling demonstrations.  Intelligent Oversampling  pays dividends in so many applications, especially in terms of noise reduction, that it’s difficult to think of an application that wouldn’t benefit. Did you ever wish you could have your cake, and eat it too? In Read More

Medical Research and WinDaq

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq Medical research applications can be very demanding on PC-based instrumentation. The problem is the range and quantity of the signals measured. Consider those of a typical cardiovascular application: Left ventricular pressure Arterial pressure Aortic blood flow Electrocardiogram Taken individually, any one of these signals does not present a particular Read More

Medical Research using WinDaq

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq Data acquisition hardware and software offer unique waveform storage and analysis features particularly useful for medical research applications. WinDaq in tandem with Advanced CODAS analysis software has been applied in a wide range of medical research (MR) applications; a market segment notoriously demanding in both price and performance. An 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

Frequency and True RMS Data Acquisition

Data Acquisition > Mixed Measurements Are you looking for a quick and easy way to calculate, display, and record frequency and/or True RMS data? Are you interested in saving money? DATAQ Instruments, Inc. has a solution for you. Beginning with the July, 2003 (version 2.85) release of WinDaq data acquisition software, it is possible to calculate, display, Read More

Networked Data Acquisition Using WinDaq Software

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq Using WinDaq software and the client networking capabilities built into all Windows Operating Systems, you can monitor acquired data remotely in virtual real time via the WinDaq Waveform Browser (free download!). You can monitor a single data acquisition device or several simultaneously from the comfort and safety of your Read More

Bandwidth and DI-8B/DI-5B Series Signal Conditioning Modules

Data Acquisition > Mixed Measurements Suppose you’re browsing the DATAQ web site looking for a DI-8B series, analog voltage module to acquire a 10V peak-to-peak, 100Hz waveform. You come across the DI-8B31-02. It’s an analog voltage module; it has a full scale measurement range of ±5V, perfect. Not so fast! The DI-8B31-02 has a bandwidth Read More
