Microstar's DAPstudio software now includes interactive filter design allowing users to build and run applications based on the digital conditioning system series without needing any other data acquisition software. The system connects sensors to one or more specialized, PC-installed DAP boards for as many channels as needed of filtered 16-bit resolution data (+/- 10mV to +/-10V), with many signal-conditioning services. System hardware costs around $1,000 per channel, and DAPstudio is priced at $199. A free demo is available at the company's website.
The series now can interface with a wider array of EtherNet/IP-compliant hardware across many industrial sectors, including factory automation systems, plastic injection molding apparatus, and materials-handling equipment.
