The most of new industrial and laboratory test and measurement systems use personal computers for data acquisition, visualization, processing and analysis. However, unlike common peripherals, there is no industrial standard or conventional specifications for interface between PC software and measurement instrument. Furthermore, analytical instrumentation involves a wide variety of measurement schemes and algorithms. As a result, today there’s no really universal software packages for automation of data acquisition systems, and in many cases the only right way out is to create custom applications.
Why use Data Master 2003?
Feature-rich. Even if you don't plan to use DM2003 in the data acquisition system, you can take advantage of its convenient visual editing tools and powerful analysis features, or create your own custom operations and seamlessly integrate them into the extensible user interface. DM2003 can easily import data from various sources and export presentation-quality graphs into popular desktop applications.
Affordable. While existing commercial data acquisition and analysis software is very expensive, DM2003 is free! Moreover, it is the only available freeware product in this category of Windows software applications.
