Great tool, very versatile

I don't have alot of experience with this type of tool, but I found it easy to use once it is setup properly. I consulted the well-written manual, and was able to program the parameters and had a working setup in a few minutes.

I was able to run the product right out of the box. It took a while to understand and I have not gotten through all of its capabilities. The instructions are not intuitive. The graphing and charting take some playing around with. I like the export feature of the data.

Example literature is inadequate for a new user.

The scaling of displays is painful. Display of channels gets messed up when number of lanes is reduced( say from 8 to 5 ). We've got 24 channels used in our system and that's too many to display and still be able to interpret the traces without confusion. Parameter names do not appear beside traces on display. Using only channel numbers on the display makes it easy to refer to an incorrect trace

Multiple good features to meet the expectations

It has been meeting all our needs with great provisions for data logging, display and storage. It is easy to write programs to fetch the data points we need from the spreadsheet that it creates. The options to set up and load different configurations, select the desired range, adjust no. of triggers, put labels have come to be very handy for us. Playback option is good too. Overall, it is quite good software with the only complain that it could have been more user friendly as some of the other MC software.

How can I get TracerDAQPro to collect more than 1e6 readings?

I am using TracerDAQPro to collect 3 channels of data at 40hz. I need to continuously collect the data for approximately 53 hours. TracerDAQPro will only collect for 6 hours and 56 minutes max (1,000,000 measurements). Is there any way to extend the range without reducing the sample rate? Or is there any way to have TRACER DAQ automatically store the data and start again without having to manually do it every 7 hours?

TracerDAQ PRO has a hard limit of 1 million samples per channel. Any restart must be manually initiated. If you reduce your sample rate to 5 Hz, you can sample for 53 hours. Otherwise, please consider purchasing DASYLab lite. A free 28 day evaluation version may be downloaded from www.mccdaq.com/dasylab

Answers
Error 300 is not specific to TracerDAQ, but instead is bubbling up from the underlying DAQ (UL) driver. Error 300 is a catch-all for a variety of low-level bus errors. So if the DAQ device is USB based, then the problem is USB bus related. If using a USB 3.0 port, try a USB 2.0 port, and/or update the USB drivers (for your USB ports) as recommended by your PC vendor. If you are using a USB hub or USB cable extender in between the DAQ the PC, try without it. While less likely, if there are electro-magnetic or inductive events nearby, try moving those away.

Answers
TracerDAQ PRO does not have the capability of comparing a reference waveform to your acquired waveform. You could convert your TracerDAQ PRO data file into a CSV file and then use Excel to perform the comparison. Another option would be to use our DASYLab BASIC Graphical programming language. The BASIC version supports a “Reference Curve” module which allows you to compare your incoming data to a specified reference curve that you would create. A 28 Day Evaluation version of DASYLab is available for free at the following link: http://mccdaq.com/products/dasylab_basic.htm

TracerDAQ PRO is not copy protected, but it is licensed for installation on one PC at a time. It sounds like you are planning to uninstall it from one PC, and therefore you can legally install it onto another PC. If you no longer have your TracerDAQ PRO installation exe file (MCC sells PRO as download-only, not on a physical CD), then you should locate your original purchase email (which includes a link, login, and password), and download the latest version of PRO.

The X-axis can only display elapsed time, which is the time from the start of the sampling. It cannot display time-of-day. However, the log file’s timestamps are time-of-day.

Hello Wizz - First, for the InstaCal error you report when adding new hardware without Administrative privileges, we have resolved that issue in newer InstaCal versions, as discussed in the following FAQ: http://kb.mccdaq.com/KnowledgebaseArticle50250.aspx For your TracerDAQ question, in Win7, you should be able choose either “Switch User” or Lock this computer” without affecting TracerDAQ’s operation, but you cannot “Log off”. Logging off is not possible, since Windows closes all programs, including TracerDAQ.

Unfortunately, TracerDAQ PRO does not support mathematical functions with the exception of linear scaling in the form of (m(x) + b. However, we do have a product called DASYLab that would in fact allow for mathematical calculations to be performed on your input signals then displayed on a strip chart. More information along with a FREE 28-day Evaluation version of DASYLab can be found here: http://www.mccdaq.com/products/dasylab_lite.htm

Summary

TracerDAQ Pro has been completely re-engineered to better address our customers' expanding test and measurement needs. TracerDAQ Pro offers the functionality and throughput our users desire, while at the same time delivering an out-of-the-box, non-programming solution.

TracerDAQ Pro provides four virtual instrument applications used to graphically display and store input data – and generate output signals – within minutes of installing Measurement Computing data acquisition hardware. The applications allow the user to customize appearance, store configurations for future use, save data to a file for export and – with the use of interactive hotspots – change settings while the application is running.

Strip Chart STRIP CHART: A 48-channel Strip Chart application for logging and graphing data from analog, digital, counter, and temperature inputs from one or more Measurement Computing DAQ devices. Featured are sampling at the speed of the board (up to 1 million samples per channel), triggering using an internal software trigger, an external hardware trigger (or a timed interval trigger), the ability to set alarm conditions, add comments (annotations) to the display plot, and play back an acquisition.
Oscilloscope OSCILLOSCOPE: A 4-channel Oscilloscope application displays values acquired from analog inputs. Featured are sampling at the speed of the board, triggering using an internal software trigger or external hardware trigger, the ability to add a reference or a math channel, display specific measurement values for each channel, and scale channel data.
Function Generator FUNCTION GENERATOR: A 16-channel multi-waveform (sine, square, triangle, constant, saw tooth, and custom) Function Generator application generates waveforms for analog outputs at the maximum rate of the Measurement Computing device. The function generator displays the sample waveform, samples per cycle, internal scan rate, and base frequency of the selected analog channel output signal. The user can perform linear and logarithmic sweeps, and change the phase, duty cycle, rate multiplier, and gate ratio of the waveform.
Rate Generator RATE GENERATOR: A 20-channel Rate Generator application displays the sample waveform, samples per cycle, internal scan rate, and base frequency of the selected counter/timer channel output. The user can change the frequency, duty cycle, and initial state of the waveform.
