iDAQ Test & Log

The free iDAQTest&Log is a standalone ready-to-run software that can be used to test the iUSBDAQ device and log analog input’s data and read back logged data for basic analysis. With this software, users can browser through all the features in iUSBDAQ, such as reading single analog channel, multiple analog channels, streaming analog input data continuously for display and log into file with or without external trigger, set DIO (digital I/O) directions and read/write DIO states, program PWM output frequency and duty cycles, read counter etc. It’s ideal for people who do not want to write their own software. The newest version has added the offset and scale capabilities, user defined X and Y graph units. This allows the multiple graph display not only in voltage units, but can also display in the real world units for sensors. Below shows one screenshot of iDAQTest&Log software
