Astro-Med Introduces PC-Based Real-Time Virtual Chart Display Software
A powerful new PC-based strip chart display and analysis software package has been announced by Test and Measurement Product Group, Astro-Med, Inc., W. Warwick, R.I. Developed for telemetry facilities and other applications requiring real-time data viewing, the Everest VDiS (Visual Display Software) is a powerful tool that transforms the PC into a virtual strip chart recorder. Based on the software from Astro-Med's flagship Everest Telemetry Recorder-Workstation, the Everest VDiS software features a number of powerful real-time display capabilities. Data can be monitored in real-time and simultaneously displayed in strip chart, numeric datalogging and x-y plot formats. "Moving pen tips" driven by the signal data mark the real-time data points. Alarm limits can be set to allow waveforms to change color when predefined limits are exceeded. IRIG time code is displayed and grids can be synchronized with time, allowing data to be interpreted in military time. Each channel can be displayed separately or multiple channels can be displayed on a single grid for easy comparison. Data for each channel can be scaled and displayed in engineering units, independent of other channels. Bitmap templates can be displayed on the screen to allow a user to quickly identify any channel's parameters. Data can be scrolled in traditional strip chart format at speeds up to 200 mm/sec. The Everest VDiS software offers a customizable user interface, making it easier than ever for a user to customize the system for a particular application. An unlimited number of setups can be saved to memory, saving time and resources during system setup. Everest VDiS Software is designed to operate on computers running Windows 98, Windows XP and Windows 2000. The open protocol of the Everest VDiS software allows it to accept data from virtually any telemetry system. The host control protocol allows telemetry systems to control many Everest VDiS functions, including display configurations, scroll speeds, alarm levels, etc. Pricing for the Everest VDiS software starts at $3,495 for a single license. Site licenses also available. Delivery is 90 days after receipt of order. More information about the Everest VDiS software can be obtained from Astro-Med, Inc., Test and Measurement Product Group, Astro-Med Industrial Park, W. Warwick RI 02893.
