A simple tutorial that explains how to use the DATS Acquisition software to set up a Prosig P8000 to capture data from a CAN-bus. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XeAuntGW-O4
As mentioned in a previous post and in our last email newsletter (signup form on the right of this page) we are pleased to announce that the preview version of the new DATS Hammer Impact software is now available for download. (more…)
The digital tacho channel in a P8000 system offers better time resolution by dividing the main sample period by 16. However it is sometimes difficult to know what level the threshold should be set to so a facility to help you find the optimum level has now been added to the acquisition software. (more…)
The P8000 Auto Range and the Auto Gain Range functions are often confused by users. They are not the same, but they are related. (more…)
PROLOG is a controller that will allow remote, unattended or standalone operation of a P8000 system. In normal operation a P8000 data acquisition system is connected to a laptop or PC and data is stored, in real-time, on the computers hard drive via the USB 2.0 interface. This configuration provides a robust, high speed data capture environment. However, there are situations where it is not practical to keep the laptop connected. In some cases the environment may be suitable for the P8000 unit, but not for some of the more fragile components in a laptop. In other situations it may be desirable to have the measurement system in one location, whilst the operator may be positioned some distance away. The PROLOG unit is designed to address both of these requirements.
