Daqarta for DOS Contents
DAS16X BOARD MENU CONTROLS:
CHANNEL CONTROL:Selects any channel from 0 to 15 for single-ended operation, or from 0 to 7 for differential operation, depending on the setting of the 8/16 Channel Select switch on your board. For programmable gain boards, each channel may have its own Range when range tracking is set to Independent mode. Changing the channel will then change the Range to its previous setting for that channel.
RANGE CONTROL:If you have a programmable gain model, this control will allow you to change input sensitivity. Only bipolar (+/-) ranges may be selected, even if your model also allows unipolar ranges, since unipolar ranges are of no advantage with Daqarta. The scrollable range selections will be adjusted automatically according to your board model.
Programmable gain models can also make use of Independent range tracking mode, such that you may set a different range for each channel. When you change channels, the range will be set automatically to the previously set value.
For the models with switch-selectable gain, this control will serve to tell Daqarta which range you have set manually. There is no support on the board for reading the switch settings via software, so Daqarta won't know unless you tell it. Since the switches are on the typically hard-to-reach rear edge connector, or even on the inaccessible internal face of the board, you will probably want to set this control via the Range parameter on the configuration line and just ignore it. But the control does remain active, just in case you do need to change things while operating.
Only with switch-selected gain models does this menu control allow unipolar ranges, since if you need to have the range set for some other application, you probably don't want to crawl behind the system to change it just for Daqarta. The trace Y-axis will show an apparent bipolar +/- 10 Volt range, but the waveform will naturally never go below zero. If your data varies about some positive voltage, like +5 Volts, you may want to use the Zero option key to remove the DC value and make it appear to swing about zero Volts. This will allow you to use trace magnification to see smaller details, without magnifying them right off the top of the screen.
The CIO-DAS16 allows a custom User-selected range, for which you must provide the full-scale value via the U: parameter on the board configuration line. The range control item will not show that value, but instead will show 'USER' for the bipolar range, or '0->USER' for unipolar. (Note, however, that to specify the unipolar range from the configuration line you must give it as 'USERU'.)
RANGE TRACKING (Ind / All):For programmable gain models only, this control allows for Independent range selection for each channel. Then whenever you change to that channel, the range changes to match.
Alternately, if you toggle this control to All, then all channels will have whatever Range is set.
On switch-selectable models this control is not accessible and is permanently set to All.
EXTERNAL TRIGGER INPUT BIT:This control lets you select one of the digital input bits to be used as an external trigger. Only the "normal" input bits available on all DAS16-type boards may be used here, not those from any extra LPT or 8255 ports. Input 0 is not available, since it is also used as an external pacer input, so you may select only inputs 1 to 3.
Make sure that whatever input you select is not the same bit as set for DDisk Remote or Averager Remote unless you are SURE you will not be using those options.
DDISK REMOTE CONTROL INPUT BIT:Selects one of the 3 standard input bits for use as a remote control to start and stop DDisk recording. Make sure this bit is not the same one used for Averager Remote or External Trigger.
AVERAGER REMOTE CONTROL INPUT BIT:Selects one of the 3 standard input bits for use as a remote control to start and stop the Averager. Make sure this bit is not the same one used for DDisk Remote or External Trigger.
TRIGGER PULSE OUTPUT BIT:Selects one of the 4 standard output bits as the Trigger Pulse source.
