- Supports everything from multi-interval (three scan intervals) temperature measurement to high-speed applications
- Edit up to four arbitrary output patterns with data output and logging on a single unit
- Computation channels to support multichannel applications of up to 240 ch
- Embed backed-up data from a CF card into data files
- Automatically transfer data files via e-mail and FTP upon occurrence of events
- Convenient all-channel display for waveform monitoring lets you spot abnormal channels at a glance
- Transfer data to Excel in real time with the DDE function
- Automatically convert created data files to Excel, Lotus, or ASCII
- Overwrites old files for efficient use of hard disk space
- Saving display layouts lets you monitor using the desired screens each time
- Output patterns can be assigned to transmission output channels
Integrated Monitoring Software
This software comprises six menu options-Monitor Window, Detailed Display Setup, Channel Setup, Acquisition Conditions, System setup, and Link/Delink.
A real-time monitor for measured data. You can view both waveforms and digital data.
Detailed Display Setup
Use this menu option to specify display parameters for data (waveform color, etc.) shown in the monitor window.
Use this menu option to individually configure input channels (ranges, etc.) or define computation channels (e.g., inputting computational expressions).
Waveform editing screen for analog PWM output
- Drag & drop editing of output waveform patterns
- Edit up to 4 pattern waveforms
- Synched or unsynched waveform output
Use this menu option to set various conditions related to file acquisition (e.g., measurement interval, interval of data saving, start/end of measurement, and file name designation).
Use this menu option to define, for example, module configuration. This module configuration is illustrated in an easily understood manner.
This menu command automatically recognizes hard-wired MX100 units. Once configured, this command retains the link information.
Redisplays saved data. With this software, you can call up waveform displays, digital displays and cursor-driven displays, and perform interval computation.
Test conditions: Measurement channels only, excluding alarm and computation channels
|Measurement Interval||Number of Channels||Number of Units|
|۱۰ ms||۲۴ channels||۱|
|۱۰۰ ms||۶۰۰ channels||۱۰|
|۲۰۰ ms||۱۲۰۰ channels||۲۰|
The performance data shown above varies depending on the measurement conditions, the number of channels, and the PC’s environment settings. For high-speed systems covering 500 or more channels, refer to the following PC system requirements as a guideline:
- Pentium 4 (3 GHz)
- ۲ GB internal memory
- ۳۶۰ GB hard disk space (7200 rpm)
Combination with Other Software
Advanced recording (multiple logging)
- The multi-logging of 32 channels x 50 groups is avaialble by groups in combination with Addmulti.
Advanced recording (triggered logging)
- The event logging with advanced trigger conditions is available in combination with AddTrigger.
Advanced monitoring (user-created screens)
- User-created screens offer convenient monitoring in real time in combination with AddObserver and AddObserver Runtime.
Note: Direct connection to MXLOGGER for acquisition by AddMulti or AddTrigger can occur on only one system (one measurement interval of one of the MX100 units connected to MXLOGGER). Any system can be connected, enabling data acquisition at speeds of 100 ms, or up to 10 ms.
- The maximum number of measurement channels on which acquisition can be performed is 24 at 10 ms, or 60 at 100 ms.
- Measurement channels can be loaded into MXLOGGER’s MATH channels, and acquisition can be achieved on up to 240 channels at 100 ms by specifying MATH channels as the system to connect to from AddMulti or AddTrigger.
To maximize the number of available channels, you can connect MXLOGGER to DAQLOGGER and acquire data via DAQLOGGER. In this case, the shortest measurement interval of AddMulti or AddTrigger becomes that of DAQLOGGER (one second).
Example of Building a System Comprising MX100 and DARWIN Units
DAQLOGGER acts as a client of MXLOGGER and simultaneously makes acquisitions from both MXLOGGER and DARWIN units.
Notes) The data acquisition interval of DAQLOGGER is 1 s at the shortest. If data acquired at intervals shorter than 1 s needs to be saved, let the data be saved on the MXLOGGER side.
