Standardized software interfaces ensure access to all device parameters for configuration, control and analysis. Completely new software and control technology, so far only known from smart phones and tablet PCs, has been used for the first time in test and measurement technology.
The browser-based PMX software has set new standards in performance and usability. Complex and error-prone software installation belongs to the past.
Users and administrators benefit from easy, intuitive control. Three different user levels with corresponding user rights are available to ensure access to the PMX and the process. The modern interface merely requires a web browser-based display and control unit and enables fast access to production data for evaluation and use for servicing and maintenance. Ethernet technologies and Internet now also allow cost savings in remote maintenance.
Measurement data analysis and quality assurance using catman
catman is the professional tool for measurement engineers and supports parameterization within a few seconds using an extensible sensor database. The integrated TEDS editor enables TEDS data to be written to and read from sensors fitted with a TEDS chip.
In addition, catman facilitates building up of individual user and visualization levels and offers comprehensive analysis options. Graphical parameterization of the start and end conditions for test and measurement tasks is easy. The measured data can be saved in different formats, for example BIN, RPCIII, MAT, ASCII or XLS for quality assurance and analysis at any time.
PMX driver package
When the test and measurement equipment is used in a complex system, PMX needs to be integrated into the overall system or machine concept. The PMX driver package allows integration into LabVIEWTM*, DIAdem*, MLab (sd.Solutions) or proprietary software using .NET API (C++, C#, VB.NET). These software tools are used throughout the world and enable convenient and efficient programming and maintenance of user-specific solutions.
* LabVIEW is a brand of National Instruments.
