TranAX 3 Data Acquisition SoftwareTranAX 3 is the universal data acquisition software from Elsys designed for the TPCX/TPCE data acquisition cards and the turnkey TraNET data acquisition instruments. TranAX 3 is a client-server application and remotely controls the data acquisition instrument over the local area networks. Many data acquisition channels can be easily and rapidly configured and prepared for various measurement tasks. Complete settings and traces related to a project can be stored and recalled from disk, for maximum productivity. This greatly helps one or several users to work with pre-defined GUI-layouts and hardware configurations. Advanced triggering allows the Transient Recorder to capture rare events as well as signal anomalies. Powerful data acquisition modes from scope mode to block mode and continuous mode for gap free real-time recording to disk allow the user to choose the appropriate scheme.

The user defines how many channels to display in one graph and how many graphs to view on screen. A graph may have multiple areas and each area may have multiple rulers – the ability to visualize complex wave shapes is virtually limitless. Cursor measurements with multiple cursor pairs and more than 40 scalar functions are available to measure trace parameters. Waveform math functions such as arithmetics, smoothing and filter functions can be applied to captured as well as prestored traces. Math-on-math functions lets the user carry out advanced analysis without being a practising mathematician. The ability to document, analyze, store and import waveforms then print to printer or clipboard, rounds-up TranAX 3 software as an all-in-one universal Transient Recorder solution.
