Original Press Release

New Suite of Ten Data Acquisition and Control Programs

Press release date: February 7, 2013

Windmill Software is delighted to launch their Enhanced Windmill software suite. Enhanced Windmill includes human machine interface software, data logging, charting, output control, programming tools, alarm monitoring and drivers for instruments communicating over Ethernet, Internet, USB, Modbus, RS232, RS422, RS485 and TCP/IP.

Enhanced Windmill runs under Windows 8 and earlier versions of Windows. The package is available for just $465 and the company offers free technical support for life.

The human machine interface software, called Graphics, makes it extremely quick and easy for users to create virtual instruments, process mimics, annunciator panels, wiring diagrams or any display they choose.

Windmill Logger includes alarm indication, logging to a new data file at regular intervals, logging only when new data arrives and many other options. All logged data is time stamped and data can be sent to Excel and other programs in real-time.

No programming is required to use the Windmill Software, but "IML Tools" are included for those who do wish to write their own programs.  These take care of all the hardware tasks, leaving users free to concentrate on their applications which can be re-used with different instruments and devices. Amongst other things, the Tools can quickly configure the hardware, take input readings and write to analogue and digital output channels. They comprise an Active X control for Visual Basic, Javascript, Excel and so on.

Other programs in Enhanced Windmill include alarm monitoring and handling, charting, data replay and sequence control.

Enhanced Windmill is produced by Windmill Software Ltd, a British company established 1991. They specialise in data acquisition and control systems using Windows software.
