DCS-100A
Dynamic Data Acquisition Software

DCS-100A

Summary

Monitors measurement data with various graphs and numerical windows.
Acquires data efficiently.

The software enables easy interactive setting of various conditions and facilitates efficient acquisition of required data by showing variables under measurement in graphs and numeric windows on the display.
Measuring instruments are EDS-400A, EDX-10 series, EDX-100A, EDX-200A, EDX-5000A, PCD-400A, PCD-430A, UCAM-550A, NTB-500A, and CTRS-100 series.

Features

●The basic operation does not depend on the controlled measuring instrument, so even if the
measuring instrument been changed, the DCS-100A is still user-friendly.
●Y-time, X-Y, bar graphs, circular meters, and numeric display are possible.
●Measuring condition setting, data acquisition, data collection, data reproduction and file conversion. For analyzing the acquired data, an optional data analysis software DAS-200A is recommended.
●Acquires large capacity data by PC's hard disk.
●Collects data automatically.
●Easy operation with the toolbar, function keys and operation panel
●Converts Kyowa standard data file format (KS2) into CSV and Exccel formats during data reproduction.
