Independent monitoring of measurement

 
  • You can sit back and monitor the test independently of the measuring point: On transmission of the measurement signal from the measuring point to the CX23-R data recorder, data can be viewed and processed directly via the data recorder’s web interface without any software installation – anytime and anywhere.
  • Parameterize channels, monitor measurement jobs and visualize data in just a few clicks. Standard network Ethernet technology allows for remote access to SomatXR. Wireless access to the web server is also possible via mobile devices.
 

 

Using a local PC or Laptop as Data Recorder:

 
  • The measurement modules can be used stand-alone without a data recorder
  • Simply connection by Ethernet from the PC/laptop to one or multiple measurement modules
  • Direct operation using catman measurement software
