Real-Time Data Acquisition

ADwin systems support parallel, individually-controlled, real-time processes, while running independently of the PC's operating system. ADwin systems provide deterministic operation with response times of 1 usec. or less. A key feature is tightly coupled analog and digital inputs along with counters that provide extremely low latency operation. They 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.

Applications

ADwin real-time data acquisition systems are used for 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.

Software

The ADwin software environment can be used under Windows (95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP/Windows 7) and LINUX or as a stand-alone data acquisition system. Also, ADwin has drivers for many of the popular programming environments including VB, VC/C++, LabVIEW, TestPoint and others.
