for ADwin’s Advanced Data Acquisition and Control Systems
CHESTERLAND OH—November 30, 2011
CAS DataLoggers in cooperation with ADwin is pleased to announce a new release of software for ADwin real-time data acquisition and control systems. This new software, ADwin-CD 5.00.17.01, provides enhanced support for both 32- and 64-bit versions of Windows 7 in addition to older operating systems including NT 4.0, Win 2000, Win XP and Vista. The new software supports Ethernet, USB and Link interfaces for ADwin systems and includes Windows drivers, 32-bit and 64 DLL’s and ActiveX library along with ADbasic 5, ADtools and ADlog. Drivers and examples are also provided for all interfacing ADwin systems with many popular programming environments including C, Delphi, DIAdem, LabView, Testpoint, VisualBasic, VisualStudio.NET, VEE, Matlab, DASYlab, Scilab and Python. This new software is now available for download from the manufacturer’s website at http://www.dataloggerinc.com/downloads/adwin.php.
ADwin systems provide high performance real-time data acquisition and control for demanding applications including testing automotive components, sensors and ECU’s, electrical component test, control of servohydraulic systems, motion control, laser and ebeam control, signal generation and high speed, synchronized data acquisition. The architecture of these sophisticated systems is optimized to provide precise, deterministic operation with microsecond response times. A high-performance local DSP controller manages the data acquisition hardware and works in cooperation with a PC via a shared memory interface that provides transparent access to data and control variables. The system is partitioned to share the load such that the DSP in the ADwin system controls all time critical tasks, leaving the PC free to handle the user interface, data presentation and data storage.
ADwin systems provide a comprehensive set of capabilities for high speed data acquisition and control including analog inputs, analog outputs, digital inputs, digital outputs, counters, CANbus, serial and other industrial interfaces. These powerful devices are available in 3 form factors, the ADwin-L16 which offers 8 analog inputs, the ADwin-Gold/Gold II with 16 analog inputs and the ADwin-Pro/Pro II Series which utilize a modular form factor with plug-in modules to allow up to 480 analog or digital inputs in a single chassis. There are also a variety of other I/O options including CANbus, SSI, Profibus/Fieldbus, RS-232/485, and signal conditioner modules. Additionally, these systems are freely programmable in ADbasic to accommodate even the most complex projects for data acquisition, machine control, test stand automation or research.
