Specialist Data Acquisition for TecQuipment Education Equipment
TecQuipment's in-house developed software, VDAS® (Versatile Data Acquisition System) has been tailored to operate in perfect harmony with the TecQuipment products to maximise learning potential.
The digital system is easy to set-up and use with simple USB connections. It provides real-time data-capture, calculation, charting and data export. In some cases, real-time traces of analogue signals and advanced signal processing are possible.
VDAS consists of both hardware and software.
The hardware comes in three different options.
- VDAS On Board
The hardware is integrated into the teaching product as standard and requires no additional hardware to be purchased. All products with a ‘V’ at the end of the product code have VDAS On Board eg EC1501V.
- VDAS Bench Mounted
The hardware is a separately purchased unit that sits on a bench that can serve many bench-top pieces of VDAS®-compliant equipment in a laboratory.
- VDAS Frame Mounted
The hardware is a separately purchased frame-mounted unit designed to work with larger pieces of equipment.
Software is available to download free of charge for any unlimited number of users from the 'downloads' section of the website. Visit the TecQuipment YouTube channel for videos on how to set up a connection, save and export results and record data.
