TranAX Control-Panel

Control-Panel - Hardware Configuration

Easy and fast configuration of input channels and measurement settings in the control panel:

  • Setting the input range per channel
  • Input coupling (DC / AC / IEPE) configuration
  • Trigger configuration
  • Hardware filter configuration
  • Measurement mode setting (Scope / Mulit-Block / Continuous / ECR)
  • Sampling rate and block length setting
  • Channel labeling
  • Channel scaling in phyiscal units (e.g. Bar or mA)

Measurement Report Generator

Creating meaningful measurement reports can be time-consuming. With the documentation page in TranAX you can create them with a few clicks.

Use the already known waveform displays and scale tables and place them freely in a printable format.

  • Design a measurement report with just a few clicks
  • Long-term recordings can be divided into several pages
  • Use templates for a consistent appearance of your reports
  • Save screen and print output in the same setting
  • Results from the formula editor can be used directly in text fields
  • Create automated PDF reports using the measurement flow control (MFC)

TranAX - Formeleditor Beispiel


Do you need the measurement data at a later time for further analysis? No problem with TranAX. Use the same software for measurement and analysis without the need to reorder your signals.

More complex analyses and post-processing can also be performed in TranAX using the Formula Editor. Over 60 integrated and documented functions are available for application-specific evaluations. The calculated measurement curves can be visualized directly on the display.

Application Examples:

  • Signals filtering
  • Remove DC Offset
  • Cutting out individual batches from a measurement
  • Searching for curves at certain levels
  • Velocity calculations of light barrier signals
  • Statistical evaluations
  • And many more…

Series Evaluations with the Measurement Flow Control (MFC)

Create automated serial measurements and evaluations thanks to macro-like Measurement Flow Control (MFC):

  • Automatically save measurement data with automatic file name assignment.
  • Automated loading of layout and hardware settings.
  • Execution of external tools with the CALL command.
  • Execution of formula calculations at a specific point in time
  • Display instructions to the user
  • Query variable inputs during the run

Video Synchronization

Import video recordings to play them back synchronously with the measurement curves and thus increase the significance of your measurements. All common video formats can be imported directly into TranAX.

Experiments with objects in motion or explosions are often recorded with standard or high-speed cameras. Video recordings help to explain or validate measurement data from different sensors recorded by a data acquisition device, such as a TraNET FE from Elsys. TranAX now brings the video recording and the measurement data together, in one program and synchronously.

Synchronization of the Measurement Data to the Video

Video files created simultaneously with measurement data can be played synchronously. While the video is running, a cursor in the waveform display shows the corresponding position in the measurement data. For this to work correctly, the frame rate of the video must be set correctly and a common reference point must be defined correctly.

The frame rate of a normal video is 25 frames per second (fps). Professional and high-speed cameras offer the possibility to record at different and faster (up to 10’000 fps) frame rates. This frame rate must be set in the video display so that the timeline can be determined correctly.

Even if the video recording was triggered by a trigger of the measuring system, temporal shifts may occur or the video recording may not start at the same time as the measurement. To compensate for this, a unique common event must be found in the video as well as in the measurement data. For example, the first contact of two objects should be visible in the video as well as on a measurement curve of a force sensor. If such an event is found, this point in time is set as “Origin” in both displays.
