DAQ Plot

DAQ Plot is a simple to use strip chart application that plots electrical signals and controls devices in realtime using digital output channels and built-in feedback control loops. Use the screw connectors on the accompanying data acquisition hardware to attach sensor wires and watch the signals graph in realtime. It's that easy. Voltage is displayed in a real-time strip chart fashion.

With DAQ Plot you can control other hardware such as valves and switches using the digital output connectors and their associated user interface switches. It also has built-in feedback loops so you can control processes based on input values. The effect of the feedback and control switch settings are immediately viewed on the real-time strip chart so you can monitor and assure your process as it happens.

You can hook up nearly any sensor that has an output voltage within the range interval of the DAQ Hardware, typically from around 100 millivolts to 10 volts. Amplifiers and signal conditioners permit plotting from strain gages, thermocouples or any other sensor. This manual includes basic experiments, information on ordering different sensors and describes fundamental electrical concepts. Because of its ease of use and versatility DAQ Plot is perfect for the inquisitive mind, from secondary school science experiments to research laboratory settings.

Seconds to months worth of data can be displayed at one time. Parameters can be change dynamically, including sample resolution, scroll back, autoscaling and gain settings. Data sampling is continuous and can be turned on and off as needed. Voltage time series can be saved, retrieved and appended, exported to spreadsheet applications or other applications and exported to a full-featured graph layout application for publication quality results.

Typical Uses
Learning
Tool
This manual describes how to use DAQ Plot, basic experiments and fundamental concepts of electricity. Pictures show typical use. Includes information for ordering various sensors. Use it to create your own experiments, learn about electricity and empower students with signal plotting capability from electrical sources limited only by their imagination.
Deluxe
Strip Chart
Recorder
Any sensor with the appropriate voltage can be hooked to DAQ Plot. For specialized equipment with voltage output terminals it is just a matter of wiring it to the screw connectors. If your device has a serial port connector then DAQ Plot has options to sample directly from that serial port. Use DAQ Plot for a quick look-see or to collect results for lab reports.
Control Loops
Signal Processing
DAQ Plot includes settings for control loops and signal processing. The signal processing can filter input signals so that control loops are stable and more definitive.
