TracerDAQ Pro

Enhanced Virtual Instrument Suite.

PCI-488

Overview

TracerDAQ Pro is an easy to use software application suite which provides four virtual instrument applications used to graphically display and store input data—and generate output signals—within minutes of installing Measurement Computing data acquisition hardware. The applications allow the user to customize appearance, store configurations for future use, save data to a file for export and—with the use of interactive hotspots—change settings while the application is running. No Programming is required so TracerDAQ is ideal for the novice and time challenged engineers.

 

STRIP CHART: A 48-channel Strip Chart application for logging and graphing data from analog, digital, counter, and temperature inputs from one or more Measurement Computing DAQ devices. Featured are sampling at the speed of the board (up to 1 million samples per channel), triggering using an internal software trigger, an external hardware trigger (or a timed interval trigger), the ability to set alarm conditions, add comments (annotations) to the display plot, and play back an acquisition.
OSCILLOSCOPE: A 4-channel Oscilloscope application displays values acquired from analog inputs. Featured are sampling at the speed of the board, triggering using an internal software trigger or external hardware trigger, the ability to add a reference or a math channel, display specific measurement values for each channel, and scale channel data.
FUNCTION GENERATOR: A 16-channel multi-waveform (sine, square, triangle, constant, saw tooth, and custom) Function Generator application generates waveforms for analog outputs at the maximum rate of the Measurement Computing device. The function generator displays the sample waveform, samples per cycle, internal scan rate, and base frequency of the selected analog channel output signal. The user can perform linear and logarithmic sweeps, and change the phase, duty cycle, rate multiplier, and gate ratio of the waveform.
RATE GENERATOR: A 20-channel Rate Generator application displays the sample waveform, samples per cycle, internal scan rate, and base frequency of the selected counter/timer channel output. The user can change the frequency, duty cycle, and initial state of the waveform.
