Fluke DAQ 6.0 Application Software Versatile and powerful

Easy instrument setup. Simply connect your 2638A, 1586A, NetDAQ or 2680A Series to your computer and your current hard¬ware configuration will pre-populate in the configuration setup area, ready to edit if needed. The simple copy-and-paste feature makes quick work of setting up multiple channels with similar inputs.

Trend chart. View up to 32 trends on one graph, with the ability to save and load historical charts and add new chart formats.  Chart controls for auto scale, fixed scale, horizontal and vertical zoom and grid division control.

Chart data export. DAQ makes it easy to extract data from any portion of your historical chart data. Simply select the data you want and export chart data to a convenient CSV file format.

Print capability. Print trend charts and alarm status infor¬mation from a local PC or from the DAQ web view.

Web view. In addition to current readings, the web view feature allows users to display trend charts and the alarm screen in a web browser. Four web clients allow password secure connections from up to four remote users simultaneously.

Web control. Instrument scanning can be started and stopped remotely from the Web view screen in a browser, using one of the four thin web clients within DAQ.

Alarm pages.  The DAQ alarm page gives the operator a full page view of historical and present alarm conditions. The opera¬tor has full control over alarm acknowledgement function and can select filters for viewing specific channel alarm history by channel or date range. Alarm conditions may also be emailed to users for immediate notification of system status.

Off-line operation. Instruments can be left scan¬ning when the DAQ 6.0 application shuts down. Start the program again and DAQ 6.0 software reconnects to your instruments and resumes data retrieval and control.

Import/export configuration files. The DAQ 6.0 soft¬ware configuration is saved in XML format, which allows the configuration to be easily imported, exported and edited.

Automatic start scan. DAQ 6.0 can be easily set to start scanning automatically when your computer is started. This allows unattended opera¬tion or automatic scan resum¬ing after a power failure.

Multiple language support. Version 6.0 speaks your language and can be switched from one language to another during operation. Languages supported in DAQ include English, Spanish, Swedish, Russian, Korean, Japanese, Italian, German, French and Chinese.
