Collect force, force and displacement or torque data from force gauges, torque gauges and testers with RS-232 or USB ports.

Force Data Acquisition Software

SW-1X Force Data Acquisition Software

sw-1x-db-1x-icon sw-1x1
Optional – DB-1 – Data Input Button

DB-1 is a simple, compact, one channel interface that enables the user to send measurement data to a PC running SW-1, Imada data acquisition software, or other software.

Single data mode

This mode simplifies peak measuring tests because it also ‘zeros’ the gauge after sending the data to the computer, thus eliminating the need to reset manually for each test.

Automatic acquisition mode

allows users to select different acquisition rates from 20 data/second to 1 data/999.9 seconds. Start data acquisition by clicking the button, then click again to stop, which simplifies start/stop functions by eliminating the need to use computer mouse and screen to control testing. This allows users to focus on the testing rather than the PC and the data acquisition spreadsheet.

As a visual confirmation, the LED lamp will light up for both single data and automatic acquisition modes when data is being sent to the computer.

No external power supply is needed as power is supplied through the PC. Connect Imada gauges to the data input button with cable CB203 and the computer to the data button with a 6′ DB9 serial cable (included with DB-1).

DB-1 can also be initiated with a remote switch.
DB-4 data button is available for Digimatic output.

SW-2X Force vs. Displacement Data Acquisition Software

DB-2X – Data Input Button

DB-2X is a simple, compact, two channel interface that enables the user to send measurement data to a PC running SW-2X Imada data acquisition software. Use of DB-2X requires an Imada test stand with -S distance meter, #905691 distance meter cable, Imada force gauge, force gauge RS-232 output cable and a Windows PC with SW-2X software.

Single data mode

This mode simplifies peak measuring tests because it also ‘zeros’ the gauge after sending the data to the computer, thus eliminating the need to reset manually for each test.

Timer acquisition mode

allows users to select a variable timer from 0.5 seconds to 999 seconds. Start data acquisition by clicking the button, then click again to stop, which simplifies start/stop functions by eliminating the need to use computer mouse and screen to control testing. This allows users to focus on the testing rather than the PC and the data acquisition spreadsheet.

As a visual confirmation, the LED lamp will light up for both single data and automatic acquisition modes when data is being sent to the computer.

No external power supply is needed as power is supplied through the PC. Connect Imada gauges to the data input button with correct cable for your force gauge and the computer to the data button with a 6′ DB9 serial cable (included with DB-2X).

DB-2X can also be initiated with a remote switch.

ZP Recorder Data Acquisition Software

ZR-E – ZP Recorder
zp-recorder-01 zp-recorder-02

High Performance

ZP Recorder force data analysis software is designed to interface with Imada ZP and ZPH Series (USB) force gauges to record and process the 1,000 data per second transmitted by the gauge. Each data point incorporates both a force and time value, so force profiles can be analyzed for much more than just the peak.
Set units of measurement and zero the gauge from the software. Record in either Manual or Automatic modes. Automatic mode can be configured to save data for both destructive and nondestructive testing.

Force Data Analysis Tools

The recorded data is displayed as a graph and statistics are automatically generated. Zoom into any part of the graph to examine individual data points at intervals of 1mS. Mouse over any data points to display the force and time values.
Further data analysis can be done by selecting part of the graph to generate statistics for that time interval. Detect the first peak for a specific threshold for the whole graph or just a part of it. Compare and align multiple graphs which are color-coded for clear display. Save graphs or export data to CSV format.
ZP Recorder offers new tools to users requiring the latest advancements in force data analysis.
