National Instruments is providing support for new Tektronix value-line oscilloscopes in the latest version of LabVIEW SignalExpress Tektronix Edition, an interactive PC-based measurement software for acquiring, analysing and presenting data quickly without programming. LabVIEW SignalExpress Tektronix Edition 2.5 can be used to connect to and control all value-line Tektronix oscilloscopes including the new Tektronix DPO3000 and TDS3000C digital phosphor oscilloscopes as well as the MSO4000 mixed-signal oscilloscopes from a PC with an easy-to-use, drag-and-drop environment. The latest version of the software also introduces time-saving features such as measurement and waveform logging and new interactive reporting capabilities.
Bob Bluhm, Vice President of the Value Scope Product Line at Tektronix, says: "National Instruments is a good partner and an industry leader in instrumentation software and LabVIEW SignalExpress Tektronix Edition is a perfect complement to our industry-leading oscilloscopes. Using LabVIEW SignalExpress Tektronix Edition, our customers can quickly control their Tektronix oscilloscopes from their PCs and begin data-logging and analysis within seconds without any programming. The combination of Tektronix oscilloscopes and LabVIEW SignalExpress Tektronix Edition provides our customers with compelling functionality and value."
LabVIEW SignalExpress Tektronix Edition provides plug-and-play setup with Tektronix oscilloscopes as well as more than 400 additional modular and benchtop instruments, making it easy to connect standalone instruments to PCs and configure all instrument communication, view live measurement data and take control of the oscilloscope. With a few additional mouse clicks, data can be logged to a disk and exported directly to a spreadsheet application such as Microsoft Excel for easy analysis and reporting. The software also offers advanced data-logging features such as alarm monitoring and condition logging as well as the automation of common measurement tasks such as circuit characterisation and frequency sweeping. Additionally, LabVIEW SignalExpress Tektronix Edition provides more than 200 analysis and processing functions.
Measurement and waveform logging
The latest version of LabVIEW SignalExpress Tektronix Edition introduces measurement and waveform logging capabilities that make it possible to record measurements directly to a PC, thus automating an often tedious and time-consuming task. LabVIEW SignalExpress Tektronix Edition 2.5 also adds new interactive reporting features such as a drag-and-drop report that displays live data as well as the ability to save and print reports as HTML pages.
LabVIEW SignalExpress Tektronix Edition LE, a version of the software with limited features, is shipped as part of the standard configuration with all Tektronix value-line oscilloscopes and AFG3000 arbitrary function generators including the new AFG3011 high-amplitude model. Tektronix customers can upgrade to the full version for advanced signal processing, analysis, documentation and data-logging.
