Yokogawa SL1000 DAQ system

The new software for Yokogawa's SL1000 high-speed data-acquisition system delivers additional functionality including real-time X-Y display and waveform accumulation capabilities.

In addition to the real-time X-Y display feature, which plots the relationship between two different input signals, the new acquisition software provides a 'mark' function which allows the user to attach an information label during measurement as well as an 'auto play' function for zoom or history waveforms.

In addition to the new accumulation display, a 'snapshot' function is also available that can be used to visually compare a reference signal with a new measurement. The software comes with improved file utility capabilities and allows users to save part of the captured data and convert files to binary or ASCII formats (with support for MATLAB).

The Yokogawa SL1000 is a modular PC-based DAQ unit designed to provide high-speed data logging and fast data transfer in electromechanical and power measurement applications. 'It can directly connect to popular sensors like thermocouples, accelerometers, strain gauges and tachometers.

With 100Msample/s sampling on 16 channels and isolated inputs for high-voltage measurements, the SL1000 is also equipped as standard with intuitive, easy-to-use logging and control software for quick start and set-up.

The new acquisition software and firmware for the SL1000 is now being shipped with all new products. For SL1000 units delivered before July 1, 2009, a free update is now available from the Yokogawa Test & Measurement Website.
