Instrument driver

Monday, 20 September, 2004 | Supplied by:

A library of VIs allows dataTaker DT50, 500, 600 and DT800 range data loggers to be configured and queried from LabVIEW, giving a data logger hardware alternative for acquisition tasks.

With flexible, universal analog, digital and serial inputs, the hardware can be used for real-time data acquisition, in addition to being suitable for applications requiring standalone operation in remote or distributed locations with limited power supply.

For users familiar with dataTaker hardware, the instrument driver provides a means to incorporate data loggers in an open, programmable software environment, including mixing dataTaker and other I/O hardware.

The driver takes care of all the communications and data format issues allowing users to concentrate on the application rather than how to interface to the logger.

The instruments have flexible analog, digital and serial inputs, which allow which allows them to be connected to a broad range of sensors. There are no modules or special configuration switches required.

The selection of sensor types is software configurable. This suits ongoing use in different environments or for different applications (for example laboratory experiments).

All loggers are designed to provide accurate analog inputs suitable for a large range of measurement needs. Their construction makes them suitable for use in industrial and field applications, remote or otherwise.

Supported communications include ethernet, serial and modems (land lines, mobile, satellite, radio).

In standalone, remote use, data is acquired and stored locally at the measurement site. The driver makes full use of the data storage capabilities of the data logger and will, by default, download any recent data not previously downloaded.
