DAQami™ v3.0

DAQami is good basic software for MC usb hardware

DAQAMI has good basic features quickly set up data acquisition and monitoring of multiple digital and analog input signals. It offers linear scaling and offset to provide graphs of real measured quantities provided the measuring device is linear and that can is a limitation for the many nonlinear devices that can be found. While DAQami is good basic software that is easy to set up it would be far more useful if code was added to allow the input of 3rd order polynomials for nonlinear devices, custom input titles to identify the signals being measured and digital or analog outputs for preset alarms on input signal values. I would recommend this product for use with their USB data acquisition hardware as starter software. It is a good value, with modification it could be an excellent value.

Excellent software for simple applications

The strength of DAQami if for limited data acquisition and visual data evaluation of multiple channels. This is what I purchased the DAQami for and it does everything I expected. Looking at sections of the acquired data is easy and more intuitive than other software I worked with. The only issue I have is the horizontal scale, which is not decimal, but the smallest steps are 1/6th of the larger ones.

The USB-202 and/or the USB-205 are both capable of running a control sequence like the one you described below. However, DAQami does not provide this form of customization. DAQami can acquire data and can also generate signals but there is no correlation between the inputs and the outputs, they run independent of each other. To develop a program like the one below you will need to use one of the following options: Our Universal Library for .NET, our ULx drivers for LabVIEW, or our DASYLab Graphical programming language. http://mccdaq.com/products/dasylab.htm Please contact us at 1-800-234-4232 Ext-3 if you have any additional questions.

For the USB-2408 (and for the USB-2416) currently you will need to first set all channels to Single-Ended mode in InstaCal. Then DAQami will be able to enable and use all 16 channels. Note that DAQami still says “Differential”, but that can be ignored. We plan to simplify this in a future DAQami rev.

At this time, DAQami is only compatible with ONE USB device at a time. One option would be to select a DAQ device that meets your channel requirements. The USB-2416 supports 32 single end/16 differential and with the AI-EXP32 expansion module you increase your channel count to 64 single ended/ 32 differential inputs. Another option would be to use our TracerDAQ PRO application which supports up to 48 inputs from any number of supported USB devices.

Hello, I have a USB-2408 device. At its price point, DAQami seems to be a very capable piece of software. If purchased, I want to ensure that it can acquire the data I need. I need to capture 6 channels of voltage data simultaneously at about 100 Hz each. The device information indicates it is capable of 1000 S/sec, so this is within the device capability.

DAQami WILL support the full channel count and sample rate of a supported MCC USB DAQ device. However, DAQami does have one limitation that may or may not effect your data collection. DAQami can collect and log up to 1 million samples per channel per file. Unfortunately, this cannot be circumvented. However, we have several options for acquiring over 1 million samples continuously. You can use our Universal Library for Windows, we also have our ULx drivers for NI LabVIEW. Both of the libraries are included with our products. If you are not a programmer and are looking for something easy to use, you can always use our DASYLab Graphical programming language.

We have a USB-1208LS, and the minimum sample rate shown on the Acquisition set-up tab is 100 samples per second. The demo video shows 0.029 samples per second as the minimum. Why do we not see that lower sampling rate? The 100 samples per second will generate way to much data in the log file for our needs (1 sample per second is more than enough.)

Hello - The USB-1208LS DAQ device has a narrow range of possible hardware-paced sampling rates (100 to 1200 Hz). i.e. this specific hardware model is the reason. One improvement you could make is to sample all channels, even if you do not have signals connected – this will reduce the 100 Hz down (to 25 Hz in DIFF and 12.5 Hz in SE).

Answers

The discounted price for DAQami is only valid with the purchase of a compatible MCC DAQ device made at the same time. Unfortunately, it cannot be applied to previously placed orders. MCC does not have a TracerDAQ Pro and DAQami comparison table as they are quite different in their intended audiences. TracerDAQ Pro is a full suite of Virtual Instruments that offer a virtual oscilloscope, function generator, rate generator and strip chart. It is intended for customers who are familiar with these bench top instruments and prefer this user experience when using data acquisition devices. DAQami offers a great environment for those who simply want to monitor and log analog data from USB data acquisition devices. DAQami was designed to be easy to configure and use offering an up-to-date user interface that allows users to create their own combination of data displays. While DAQami offers many benefits, if you are happy with the TracerDAQ Pro Virtual Instrumentation user experience, there is no need to purchase DAQami as both environments can acquire and log up to 1 million samples per channel.
