ADwin driver: the connection to the PC
User interfaces for ADwin on the PC
Multiple programming languages and development environments are available for the implementation of graphical user interfaces on the PC. ADwin provides ready-to-use drivers based on DLL or ActiveX technology which can be easily integrated into your programming environment. With our ADwin drivers you obtain direct access to communication and data exchange with your ADwin system.
Scientific software packages
Use PC software packages such as LabVIEW, DASYLab, MATLAB, DIAdem, Agilent VEE or Excel for visualisation and control of your test stand or production line.
LabVIEW The commands for control and data exchanges with ADwin are consistently available as VIs.
DASYLab The ADwin modules provide you with all functions and are directly integrated into DASYLab.
MATLAB For MATLAB, a proprietary and optimised ADwin driver is available. Communicate with ADwin from the command window or via M-files or seamlessly write your standalone solution for your control application.
Python Being as simple and concise as ADwin, Python is an ideal partner for fast real-time with ADwin systems.
DIAdem ADwin supports you in working with DIAdem. Use the ADwin Blocks for single value or packet mode. Alternatively, you may write your own auto sequences with VB Script (e.g. for testing tasks realised with ADwin systems).
Excel The office applications Excel and Access communicate with ADwin using ActiveX and VBA. Generate your setpoint or calibration tables, send them to ADwin and let Excel visualise the results for further evaluation after the measuring task finishes.
Agilent VEE Import our ActiveX component into Agilent VEE and you can use the ADwin functions as ActiveX objects in your graphical user interface.
Scilab Run your ADwin real-time application with Scilab, the scientific open-source software package. ADwin ships with drivers for Windows and Linux.
All common programming languages – such as Delphi, Visual Studio .NET, Visual Basic, Visual C/C++, C-Builder, LabWindows or Wonderware InTouch – allow the inclusion of our DLL or ActiveX components. Almost every compiler or development environment supports at least one of the interfaces. Consequently, there are a large number of tools available for the design of your individual grapical user interface.
Additionally, we provide drivers for Linux and Java. Use the platform independently of Java or the open source tools of the Linux operating system and implement your test stand’s user interface with ADwin.

What do our Customers say about us?
Many thanks for the prompt reply – I went ahead and purchased the download and was able to upgrade as you promised – fantastic service! I shall be recommenting Adept Scientific to anyone who’ll listen to me!SF, Leicester, UK
When working with many data points, graphing is often the quickest way to qualify data and identify trends. With the Origin statistics gadget, it’s also easy to pull quantitative information, such as mean and standard deviation, straight from a data plot. This lets me make better decisions about which data to select for more detailed analysis.Boaz Vilozny - Postdoctoral Researcher, University of California at Santa Cruz
I greatly appreciated the fact that you did what you said you would do – not everyone is so nice and punctilious as you.Dr PL, Kent, UK
Your technicians are always really friendly, reassuring and helpful.HM, Cambs, UK
