ADtools: the window to real-time

Faster development with ADtools

ADtools consist of self-contained Windows applications providing you direct access to the data, variables and functions of the ADwin systems. Each of the ADtools objects provides comfortable and separate set up of its parameters and calibration values. The ADtools are free of charge and are shipped with every ADwin CD.

Right from the start ADtools give you full support in programming your ADwin system. The intuitive graphical operation simplifies the implementation of your project considerably. The displayed data can be saved to data files, directly imported into Excel, printed or exported to the clipboard in various graphic formats. You can save your customised ADtools arrangement into a configuration file.

The versatility of ADtools

  • ADwin real-time operating system transfer, loading/starting/stopping of real-time processes.
  • Indication of the ADwin system resources, process timing, process management, etc.
  • Graphical display of data sets as curve with functions for zooming, printing, saving, clipboard export, data export to Excel, value selection via mouse pointer, etc.
  • Formattable numerical displays and input of single values.
  • Analogue instruments for value indication with coloured data ranges.
  • Parameter and limit value monitoring by LED indicator (continuous light/flashing).
  • Slider and potentiometer controls for graphical input.
  • Continuous hard disk recording from ADwin FIFOs in binary or ASCII format, with adjustable file size, automatic consecutive file numbering and definable file and column headers.
  • ADtools project management, saving customised arrangements in a configuration file.
  • Binary and hexadecimal value indication, setting of single bits via “DIL switches”.
  • Representation and input of strings for serial and bus communication.

The operational possibilities of ADtools are well-suited for visualising simple measurement tasks. More complex applications can be covered by your specific graphical user interface, designed with Delphi, Visual Studio .NET or LabVIEW, DASYLab, MATLAB, DIAdem, etc.

What do our Customers say about us?

I have greatly appreciated your help, your restraint in response to some daft questions and your sheer professionalism.

PL, Tunbridge Wells, UK

“While skeptical at first, now having switched to Origin I know it will remain my graphing software of choice. Not only does it have an intuitive user interface, but it also has the power to quickly and efficiently complete all of my graphing needs. Origin is the best graphing software available. Period.”

Mr. Kevin Clark, University of Illinois Urbana/Champaign

I have to thank you again for your help. The support level you have given gives me good confidence in using the product, knowing that there are solutions to problems that are not necessarily easy (or economic) for you to implement, but give the customer a working solution.
