Modern electronics systems, whether found in industrial, medical, automotive or other applications, are continually evolving to include additional functionality, to cram more components into a smaller space, and to provide better reliability for fast access to the most accurate data.

Regardless of the environment such as heat, cold or humidity, in most cases the information transfer is happening at a breakneck pace and testing these advanced systems to ensure data integrity becomes paramount, since a system is only as reliable as its weakest data packet.

Since electronics have entered the automotive scene, several standards for testing of electrical contacts have been developed. The aim is to design and to manufacture reliable connection systems between the different control and peripheral units within a vehicle. Reliability is of utmost importance to assure the proper functioning of the ECU (Engine Control Unit), ABS, ESP and airbag systems to name a few.

DAQ-Software TranAX 4

The powerful data acquisition software TranAX brings out the best from the measurement hardware. Easy channel configuration of input range and trigger settings, fast visualization of the measurement curves even with large data sets, data post processing with the formula editor or report generation, these are only a few of the most important features of TranAX.

DAQ API for C++, C# and Python


Several API's in different programming languages are available like C++, C# or Python.

LabVIEW Instrument driver for Elsys DAQ


Integration of the Elsys DAQ into LabVIEW is quite easy with the help of the LabVIEW Instrument Driver.

HDF5 File Format


All measurement curves in TranAX are stored in the HDF5 file format which makes data imports to other 3th. part software easy.
