Windmill Software Launch Laboratory Data Acquisition and Control Software for Windows 7
Windmill Software has announced the new Windmill 7 data acquisition software suite for Windows 7, Vista and XP. The software, Windmill 7, lets users read and control up to ten laboratory instruments over RS232, RS422, RS485 and Modbus.
It comprises fully-featured applications to chart and log data, control outputs, monitor the com port and send data directly to other programs like Excel.
The new software is offered at an introductory price of £50 - a 65% discount on older versions of the software. Technical support for life is included in the price, and there is a money-back guarantee if the software doesn't live up to expectations.
With a flexible approach to extracting data values, Windmill is suitable for collecting readings from the majority of serial instruments which can be plugged into the computer's com port. These include laboratory scales, particle analysers, titrators, fluorometers, data loggers, gyro compasses, motion sensors, gas analysers, pH transmitters, power meters, GPS receivers, sonar and conductivity meters.
Users have the freedom to mix and match equipment from many different manufacturers in many combinations. For example, serial devices from A&D, Bruël & Kjær, Denver, Fisher, Furuno, Garmin, Horiba, Mettler Toledo, Motorola, Paroscientific, Patton, Phytron, Quantum Logic, Quest Scientific, Sartorius, Siemens and Texas Instruments have all been handled by Windmill. Many channels of data can be accepted from each instrument.
