DSC 24 Channel Logging

DSC 24 Channel Logging

What Does It Do?

This software release for Windows allows up to 24 DSC, DCell or DSCUSB* modules to be viewed and logged to a CSV file. You can configure the number of channels, communications settings, main title and the channel descriptions and these configurations can be saved and loaded at any time.

With this software you can:

  • View data from up to 24 DSC, DCell or DSCUSB* modules
  • Configure the number of channels, log interval, display resolution etc
  • Log data to CSV file for easy viewing in MS Excel
  • Works with ASCII or MantraBus protocols and USB versions

*NOTE: Different combinations of computer, USB ports, hubs and extenders may reduce the number of DSCUSB devices that can be connected to a computer and therefore the total number of available channels may be less than 24.

FSU Toolkit

FSU Toolkit

The FSU Toolkit software for Windows will allow connection with the FSU module via a USB port and does not require external power supply as they appear as a ‘single unit load’ i.e. they draw <100mA.

Appropriate USB drivers must be installed which are automatically installed with the FSU Toolkit software.

What does it do?
The FSU Toolkit is a configuration and analytical tool designed specifically for configuring FSU modules. This toolkit allows configuration, calibration, data recording and review and parameter management of the modules.

The clean interface offers a highly configurable user environment.
This application supercedes VisualLink LITE but does not support some of the older instruments

Instrument Explorer is a configuration and test tool which allows immediate communication with a range of Mantracourt instruments. This allows you to quickly establish communications and verify connections.

Supported Instruments

  • DSC v3 MantraASCII
  • DSC v3 MantraBus2
  • DSC v3 ModBus
  • DSC v3 MantraCAN
  • DCell v3 MantraASCII
  • DCell v3 MantraBus2
  • DCell v3 ModBus
  • ADP MantraBus1
  • UAB MantraBus1
  • ADW MantraBus1
  • LCA MantraBus1

What can I do with instrument Explorer ?

Once the desired instrument has been selected you can setup the communications parameters required and then view a virtual instrument control panel where all of the instruments parameters and commands are displayed and allow interaction. This will allow you to view the current instrument parameters including and interactively modify read/writable parameters, just by entering the new value in the appropriate text field and hitting Return.

Data can also be logged to a window or file.
