Firetail DAQ, distributor of Measurement Computing Corporation, the market leader in low-cost data acquisition, has released TracerDAQ Pro, an enhanced version of TracerDAQ designed for data acquisition professionals.
TracerDAQ was first released in January 2004 as a Strip Chart Recorder and Data Logger software application was designed for out-of-the-box, quick-time-to-first measurement without requiring the user to write the code.
With TracerDAQ Pro, Firetail offers enhanced functionality and throughput its users’ desire delivering a non-programming solution for users of Measurement Computing’s PCI and USB-based hardware.
TracerDAQ Pro 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 customise 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.
TracerDAQ Pro applications include:
A Strip Chart for logging and graphing data from analogue, digital, counter and temperature inputs from one or more Measurement Computing DAQ devices and includes a triggering feature.
An Oscilloscope application displays values acquired from analogue inputs. Featured are sampling at the maximum speed of the DAQ board, triggering, the ability to add a reference or a math channel, display specific measurement values for each channel, and scale channel data.
A Function Generator application generates user selectable sine, square, triangle, constant, saw tooth or custom waveforms for analogue outputs at the maximum rate of the Measurement Computing device. It can perform linear and logarithmic sweeps, change the phase, duty cycle, rate multiplier, and gate ratio of the waveform.
A Rate Generator application for use with Measurement Computing’s counter devices that allows users to output clock signals with variable frequency, duty cycle and initial state of the waveform.
