Measure Foundry Adds New Components for Vibration and Temperature Measurement Under Windows Vista

Allows two analog input modules to be synchronized as one with twice the channels

MARLBORO, MA  May 20, 2008 − Data Translation announces the release of Measure Foundry 5.1 featuring Windows Vista support and the addition of new components. The new Analog Input Synched component is specially designed to allow synchronization of two DT9837A modules, reducing development time as the two devices are presented in a single component configurable as one device with twice the channels. The new ASCII File Writer component allows the user to easily save data directly to a text file. Also in this release are new Measurement Applets, including the Sound and Vibration Applet.

“Measure Foundry has extended its data acquisition capability to Windows Vista users building high performance sensor based measurement systems.
