This easy-to-use software can greatly simplify the setup of a Daytronic 2000 Series Digital Panel Meter (DPM), Counter Meter, or Remote Display—whether or not the PC running the software is connected to the instrument (for connection to a setup PC, the instrument must be equipped with an optional SERIAL COMMUNICATIONS BOARD).

When the PC is NOT connected to the instrument . . . Setup is first simulated using Setup View in the form of pages which simulate instrument panels. These pages are automatically configured depending on the selection of instrument input options, output options, and operating modes (this includes placement of internal programming jumpers). A second scrolling view called Menu View (shown below) will then display the required front-panel programming steps. Clicking on anys tep in the Menu View sequence will bring up a detailed HELP window for that step (as shown). The Menu View can be printed out to provide customized hard-copy setup instructions, as well as a permanent configuration record. Instrument setup data can also be saved to disk for later retrieval. When the setup PC is connected . . . Any setup file created using Setup View can be directly downloaded via RS232 or RS485 into one or more 2000 Series instruments, which now require no front-panel programming (a major time saving when multiple instruments are to be configured the same way). The computer can also upload (and store) existing setup data from a connected instrument. With the setup PC connected, you can also:

  • perform absolute calibration of any instrument that is connected to an appropriate external standard
  • control individual meter functions via the computer mouse (e.g., reset meter, display current or peak readings, or enter numbers to be displayed remotely)
  • display meter data on the computer screen, either as a TABLE of the latest readings (20 rows by 10 columns), with the ability of freezing the display at any moment; as a PLOT of readings vs. time in seconds (which effectively turns the meter/PC combination into a printing digital oscilloscope); or as a HISTOGRAM GRAPH, where the horizontal axis is the data reading and the vertical axis in the number of occurrences of readings (the display continually resizes itself as the number of readings increases).
