Acquire Data Acquisition Software
Add to Quote Request

Acquire is a comprehensive data acquisition package designed to operate most current and many former SIGNAL RECOVERY instruments from a personal computer. It is suitable for use with all our lock-in amplifiers, boxcar averager, and 5113 preamplifier, and operates via Ethernet, USB, RS232, or GPIB (IEEE-488) interfaces. For most users, the software eliminates the need for them to write control software, so that they can concentrate on the task of taking data. It will also prove invaluable for others who simply want to operate an instrument from a remote location or who wish to integrate their instrument with other computer controlled systems. Up to ten instruments can be controlled at the same time.

The package provides two principal modes of operation. First, in remote front panel mode virtually all of the functions of the connected instrument(s) can be controlled from the computer via a series of simple dialogs. The software is instrument sensitive and adjusts the content of these dialogs automatically to reflect the measurement capabilities and functions available in the connected unit. The data outputs to be displayed can be chosen from the range available and these are then clearly shown on-screen.

The second mode, experiment recording, allows selected instrument outputs to be recorded as a function of time, with the additional option of sweeping certain outputs (e.g. oscillator frequency, auxiliary DAC voltage, digital filter frequency, digital delay and/or digital port setting) as the experiment proceeds. When used with a lock-in amplifier, any auxiliary ADCinputs can be configured as trigger inputs, allowing data to be logged as function of external trigger events.

As data is acquired, it is displayed on screen and can be printed, as well as being saved for later use. Displayed plots can use a variety of line formats, while four curve cursors allow direct readout of measured values. However, with the very wide range of applications in which SIGNAL RECOVERY instruments can be used, it is not possible to anticipate every possible format in which the acquired data will be displayed. Hence many users take advantage of the export function to save the data to disk for display and/or further manipulation using other software.

A comprehensive help system is built in and free support is available to registered
users.
