Our RTDAQ (Real-Time Data Acquisition) software will soon replace PC9000 as the flagship product for industrial and other high-speed data collection applications. RTDAQ retains key PC9000 functionality and features, such as a variety of windows for monitoring data in near real time and support for our CR5000 and CR9000X dataloggers. Improvements over PC9000 include:
Programming tools provided by RTDAQ are Short Cut, an updated version of PC9000’s program generators, and the CRBasic Program Editor. These programming tools support the new FieldCal instruction that enables real-time, nonintrusive calibration of sensors in the field.
RTDAQ supports manual data collection over a single telecommunication medium; scheduled data collection is not supported. Compatible communication technologies include direct connect, short-haul modems, telephone modems, TAPI, TCP/ IP, narrow-band VHF/UHF radios, spread-spectrum radios, and multidrop modems. Real-time data may be monitored using Fast Graph, Histogram Viewer, FFT Viewer, Table Monitor, and X-Y Plotter.
For viewing historical data, RTDAQ includes an enhanced version of the View application. Known as View Pro, this program allows extensive display of multiple selections of data, as well as viewing of specialized data storage such as fast Fourier transforms (FFTs) and histograms.
RTDAQ represents a significant milestone in bringing ease of use, needed datalogger support, and configurable data monitoring to Campbell Scientific’s industrial customers.
