DADiSP / SIF 1.0

SFI 1.0

SoMat Information File Import Module

The SoMat Information File or SIF format stores multiple channels of data generated by the SoMat 2500, eDAQ and other SoMat data acquisition systems. The format was designed to efficiently store data records from multiple SoMat data modes.

SIF Import

DADiSP/SIF directly imports SIF data files and automatically applies all data scaling and sets sample rate and engineering unit information for each channel. Multiple data runs are saved in separate DADiSP datasets. The imported channels can be loaded into separate Windows or combined into a single Window for display.

SIF Format

Both frame multiplexed and full de-multiplexed record formats are supported for all time history and rainflow data channels. The following data modes are currently imported:

  • De-Multiplexed RAM THISTORY, SIF keyword 1 and 7
  • De-Multiplexed RAM RAINFLOW, SIF keyword 4
  • De-Multiplexed RAM TAL, SIF keyword 6
  • Frame Multiplexed RAM THISTORY_RMFDA, SIF keyword 201.

Simple Menu Interface

DADiSP/SIF runs from the DADiSP worksheet and is accessed by a press of a button. The SIF user interface displays important file information and automatically formats SIF channel names into appropriate DADiSP series names.

Full Analysis System

DADiSP provides a complete analysis, display, and processing environment using SIF data. The integration of DADiSP/SIF into DADiSP makes it easy to automate data import and analysis applications completely through SPL (Series Processing Language), macros, and command files.


DADiSP/SIF requires DADiSP 6.5 B01 or higher. Contact us for information about updating your current version of DADiSP.

DADiSP/SIF 1.0 Functions

DADiSP/SIF is a fully dialog based module. However, the following functions can be used on a standalone basis to read SIF files.

Origin lets you zoom in on an an area of the plot easily without having to rescale manually. I also love the data reader feature where you can follow a line or curve and view the exact coordinate values. Thanks for an awesome product!

I am very grateful for your prompt and kind answers to my problems. It is rarely a pleasure to complain about something, but this time it has been both pleasant and helpful. I can only regret that I did not use Swedish with Linda, men vi kan s

Thank you – again! Even those of us who do not like being the damsel in distress sometimes have need of knights in shining armour.

I have had a very helpful response, and have passed it on to my Oxford colleagues with success. I am impressed with the way Adept seems to maintain the same staff for many years, which speaks very well for the organisation.
