3118 is a 12-bit data acquisition module which was designed in 1997. Since it was released there have been major improvements to the software available for the kit. Here are all of the programs.
Please read this help file to acquaint yourself with the operation of the ISEE Data Acquisition software.
This is the latest version of the ISEE data acquisition program v3.10 for W9x/2000/ME/XP released 3 May 04. It can be used with our products 3093, 3112 and 3118
PROBLEMS RUNNING TRENDS ON ISEE PROGRAM?
Users with Windows 95 could experience problems running trends. Internet Explorer 4 or later should be installed on the PC. The latest MFC dlls should also be installed. These can be downloaded from Microsoft at http://activex.microsoft.com/controls/vc/mfc42.cab
The HiSpeedDas program permits Data Acquisition Speeds up to 1 msecs (the ISEE program above can only log data at speeds up to 50 msecs). You simply select the speed of acquisition, what inputs to log, the log file and how you want the logging to be triggered. This program only runs on Windows 98 and 95
The fastest speed is dependent on the PC used and Windows. Because Windows is multitasking it is always taking time slices for its own operations and for other applications. So it is important when logging at high speeds that all other applications be shut down.
The program here provides a command line utility for setting the digital output lines, and logging the input from all eight analogue channels and the four digital inputs. Logging rate is variable, and the number of samples collected can be set.
The following programs contain all the source code and dlls needed to write your own program to monitor and control the I/O on the DAS005 Data Acquisition Module. Programs are written for Visual Basic 5, Visual Basic 6 Borland Delphi Version 2 and Borland C++ Builder Version 3.
The VB5 uses inpout32.dll while the Visual Basic 6, Delphi and Borland C++ program use IO.dll to access the parallel port. The InpOut32.dll is freeware and is available from http://www.highrez.co.uk/downloads/inpout32/. This web site is invaluable to understand the workings of the parallel port. InpOut32 will allow your program to run only on Windows 95 and 98.
IO.dll is also freeware. It will allow your program to run on Windows 95, 98, ME, NT and 2000. It is recommended you read the the file ioreadme.txt in the io.zip file which has useful information about the functions available, running the dll under Windows NT and 2000 and legal restrictions.
