DGH offers free utility software to configure our data acquisition products. The Utility Software is menu driven, easy to use and runs on MS-Windows computers. The programs will read all user-selectable settings from a module, display the settings on the computer screen, allow user modifications and then communicate the new settings back to the module. Two utility software programs are available.
The S1000 Utility Software should be used to configure any D1000 through D5000 series module. All module communications settings, alarm values, temperature scaling and digital filtering can be selected using dropdown list boxes. After all selections have been made, the new settings can be communicated back to the module.
Additional software features include linear and non-linear scaling of the programmable D2000 series modules. The D2000 series module data values can easily be rescaled to application specific engineering units using the S1000 software. Three different rescaling methods are available, and the rescaling can even be done without an analog input source connected to the module. Rescaling the data values inside of the module can be very beneficial in applications that do not have a host computer. This feature can also eliminate the need for post processing data values.
The D6000, D7000, D8000 series Utility Software should be used to configure any D6000 through D8000 series module. All applicable communications settings, channel range selections and digital filtering can be selected using dropdown list boxes. After all selections have been made, the new values can be communicated back to the module. The configuration settings can also be written to a disk file, stored and recalled later.
Additional software features include scanning D6000, D7000 and D8000 series modules and storing their data values a disk file. The data values are written to a comma delimited ASCII text file that can be imported into a spreadsheet program such as Excel for processing.
The latest version of the utility software programs is available for download using the links below.
Utility software is available from DGH free of charge and shipped with each order. The software is shipped on a CD-ROM and contains product data sheets, product manuals, programming examples, an easy to use module configuration program, and sample configuration files for data acquisition programs such as Dasylab, Kepware, and Labview.
