Personal DAQ/56 and DASYLab

I used Personal DAQ's and Dasylab for many years. We had multiple setups for various tests that would be going on. It was our go to data acquisition system. I've started at a new company now and already have one unit and am waiting to order a second unit. Thanks.

Standard Data acqusition module for the Lab

This module added to the capacity previously purchased modules. We are very pleased with our previous modules and this one is the same except there are no digital outputs which we seldom use anyway. Standardizing on a data acquisition family results in equipment that has the same feel and similar options and is easier to set up and use in a particular application

PDaq56

We have had wonderful success with the pDaq56 for our Data recording needs using DASYLab as our software. It has been a bread and butter for us for many years now for our wide range of recording needs in our CEMS field of environmental testing. Love the product and has been reliable. Only problems I have ever experienced before was a bit of lag time on delivery due to shortage of parts. Other than that great, product, great team.

The product and service is OUTSTANDING!!!

We have been using measurement computing products for several years. We've used several A/D, D/A modules in our testers and lab. They're used extensively and stand up great! We recently ordered another A/D module and it arrived exactly on-time.

Durable and capable from 10 yr, multi unit user

We use our pdaq 56's in equipment that travels across the country and sees lots of bumps and extreme conditions. Besides the 56's channel capacity and its ability to take TC connections directly, the unit's durability is what has impressed us the most.

The manual references "PDAQX.DLL", I am building a CSharp application to interface with the device and cannot find the DLL on your ftp server. What is the exact address? I'm probably being really stupid.

Hello - There is no official support for C# or for that matter Visual BASIC dot net. However the folks in technical support created patched support and C# examples. For more information refer to the following article: http://kb.mccdaq.com/KnowledgebaseArticle50404.aspx

i have written some VB code to utilize a PDAQ/56. I'm only using 5 channels worth of input. Would I be able to purchase a PDAQ/54 and use the same code? Thanks, Jim

Hi Jim - If all 5 input channels are analog (i.e. no counter or digital channels), then the same code will run OK. The Personal Daq/54 does not have digital or counter inputs.

I could not get a laptop with 64-bit Win7 to recognize the Daq/56, but it was recognized and connected when I installed it on a PC with 32-bit XP. I'd rather not have to reinstall Win7 on the laptop purchased for this project, if there's any driver for th
