Fluke DAQ 6.0 improves trending and file handling
Fluke Corp. introduces Fluke DAQ 6.0, the latest version of its popular data acquisition application software. The powerful and versatile application provides effortless configuration, data logging, and analysis for the 2640A and 2645A NetDAQ Networked Data Acquisition Unit and 2680 Series Data Acquisition Systems, plus adds support for Fluke 2638A Hydra Series III Data Acquisition System/Digital Multimeter and Fluke Calibration 1586A Super-DAQ Precision Temperature Scanner.
With DAQ 6.0, setting up an instrument is as easy as connecting it to the technician's computer — the current hardware configuration pre-populates the configuration set-up area, which can then be easily edited if necessary. The simple copy-and-paste feature makes quick work of setting up multiple channels with similar input.
Version 6.0 features improved trending with up to 32 trends visible on one graph and the ability to save and load historical charts as well as add new chart formats. Data can be extracted from any portion of the historical chart data and saved to a .csv file format.
The new DAQ application adds a new Web interface and controls, which allow users to display trend charts and alarm screens in a Web browser to share with up to four remote users. Instrument scanning can be started and stopped remotely from the Web view screen in a browser using one of the four thin Web clients within Fluke DAQ. The new version also adds the capability to print trend charts and alarm status information from a local PC or the Fluke DAQ Web view, and supports multiple languages, including English, Spanish, Swedish, Russian, Korean, Japanese, Italian, German, French, and Chinese.
