Features

  • The measurement data is monitored in a variegated graph window display and a numeric window
  • Common operation not depending on the controlled object measuring instrument.The basic operating method does not depend on the controlled measuring instrument, so easy operation will be even if the measuring instrument changes.
  • Enables windows display with Y-Time, X-Y, bar chart, circular meter and numeric.
  • Enables compatible with Japanese/English
  • Enables measurement condition setting, data acquisition and data playback. Installation of measurement conditions, data acquisition, data recovery, data acquisition and file conversion can be completed just by using this software. DAS-100A is configured for analyzing the acquisition data.
  • Large capacity data acquisition by computer’s hard disk is available
  • Acquisition data can be collected automatically.
  • Easy operation can be realized through the toolbar, function keys and operation panel
  • When the data playback, KYOWA standard data format (KS2) can be converted to CSV and Excel formats.
