DASYLab v10 software available from Scitech is designed for those who want to get down to work straight away, without having to write programs.

DASYLab v10 software’s simple, point-and-click interface lets you set up data acquisition routines quickly and easily.

With DASYLab you can create your own individual measurement or analysis application in a few minutes.

Whatever your requirements in the control and instrumentation environment, DASYLab v10 can meet your needs, from research and analysis to large-scale production and quality control.

Features: DASYLab v10 is now supported on Vista (32 bit), Windows XP SP2 and Windows 2000 SP4.

To use DASYLab with Windows Vista you will also need data acquisition hardware which is compatible with Vista. You can already use the following data acquisition card drivers for measurement and visualization under Windows Vista (32.)

  • Adlink NUDAM driver
  • Advantech ADAM driver
  • ICP CON driver
  • MSL SOLO driver
  • National Instruments IEEE
  • National Instruments NI-CAN
  • National Instruments NI-DAQmx
  • Measurement Computing MCC-DAQ
  • Microstar Laboratories DAP
  • Modbus
  • Omega/Newport OMR driver
  • OPC-DA Client
  • Sound card
  • Superlogics driver

New and improved DASYLab Modules:

Action module - The Action module has a new channel order option, which enables you to define a set order in which the actions will be performed

Diagram module – Multifunction graphing and charting - The new display module combines the displays of a Recorder, a Yt Chart, and an XY Chart. The diagram displays all data channels in one axis system or each data channel in separate axis systems. It has easy to use scrolling tools to enable you to review data that has been acquired.

Write data module - Enhanced support for the DIAdem TDM data file format has been added, with 50 custom properties for data channels and groups added to this option.

Improved Algorithms for Signal Processing; Block size no longer restricted to a power of two - DASYLab can now perform signal analysis for data blocks that do not have the power of two. Select FFT without the power of two.

This affects the following modules:

  • Correlation module
  • FFT module
  • Electro technical characteristics module
  • Transfer module

General new features:

Import and export variables and strings automatically

A new feature makes it easier to transfer global strings variables between worksheets without making it necessary to use Action modules. You can specify a unique VAR file to store the global variables and strings for each set of worksheets, so that there is no danger of transferring values where it is not intended.

At measurement start you can import global variables and global strings including the properties from a VAR file. When the measurement stops, you can export the global variables and strings back into a VAR file.

You enable this behaviour under Options»Global Worksheet Settings. DASYLab v10 software saves these settings together with the worksheet.

Module benchmarking

DASYLab 10 includes detailed analytics on the performance of every DASYLab module within a running worksheet.

To enable this, you must check the setting compute module benchmarking in the options»global setup menu before running the worksheet, and you will then find the option module benchmarking available in the options menu.

Selecting this will launch a dialogue which shows the processing times of the modules implemented in the worksheet. (Note, running these analytics will consume processing power, so this feature should normally be disabled when the worksheet is in normal operation.)


It is now possible to generate documentation for a DASYLab sequencer file. To document the currently created or loaded sequencer in a text file, select File»Export in the sequencer window. DASYLab v10 software saves control sequences as an HTML file and transfers the tree structure to a list with two levels.

Other changes:

Action-controlled relay module

The action controlled relay has been enhanced; you can now switch each data channel separately. If you want to switch all data channels simultaneously, do not specify any channels in the Action module.

Formula interpreter module

The exp() function recognises floating point values that are greater than 264.

E-Mail module

E-mails are sent within an independent thread that Windows manages as a self-contained process independent of DASYLab. This way the sending of an e-mail does not block DASYLab anymore. You can specify a timeout of 1 to 100 seconds and document the send status in a global variable.

Variables/Strings overview

You can now open the Variables/Strings overview in the options menu without errors even if a variable uses a system variable or if a string uses a system string.

Rainflow module

DASYLab v10 software interprets the setting end of the last class accurately again.

Modbus Modules

The Modbus modules analogue input and digital input work with modified interface behaviour to provide measurement data. DASYLab v10 software needs a continuous, consistent, and equidistant data flow from the driver to the worksheet modules.

The driver uses an independent thread with a repetition rate of one millisecond for data acquisition via the COM interface. Within a thread the driver receives all relevant Modbus data and buffers the respective data for each data channel.

When the driver outputs the buffered thread data to the data blocks the driver disregards the reception time stamp for the positioning. If the measurement starts without thread data being available, the driver waits for data and does not output data in the meantime.

If the driver receives measurement data and a position in a data block has not received data, the driver outputs the last value again at this position.

Help files

The help sections for the modules groups trigger functions, statistics, files, and special have been completely revised. The help for the Remote-I/O driver Advantech ADAM, Adlink NUDAM, ICP CON, MSL SOLO, Newport / Omega OMR, and Superlogics have also been revised.


The following drivers have been expanded and revised.

  • Adlink NUDAM driver.
  • Advantech ADAM driver
  • ICP CON driver
  • Measurement Computing MCC-DAQ Driver
  • Microstar Laboratories DAP Driver
  • MSL Solo Driver
  • National Instruments NI-DAQmx Driver
  • NI-DAQmx (with & without CAN)
  • National Instruments NI-CAN Hardware
  • Newport / Omega OMR Driver
  • OPC-DA Client
  • Superlogics driver
  • Vector CAN Driver
  • IXXAT CAN Driver
  • Sound Card Driver

System requirements:

For the correct DASYLab performance the following minimum requirements must be met:


  • IBM-PC and compatible with an Intel Pentium (III, IV), Athlon, AMD K6 or AMD K7 processor (32 Bit)
  • Minimum of 512 MB memory, recommended: 1 GB
  • Hard disk memory: at least 100 MB free memory space
  • Graphics board: color depth 24 or 32 bit (true color) and a screen resolution of 1024x768 or more
  • A mouse because you can operate certain DASYLab functions only with the mouse

Operating systems

  • Windows Vista 32 Bit
  • Windows XP Pro, Service Pack 2 or later
  • Windows 2000, Service Pack 4 or later
