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?
Thank you – again! Even those of us who do not like being the damsel in distress sometimes have need of knights in shining armour.SA, Bradford, UK
“Origin has always been one of the most powerful packages for data analysis and graphing. With the new multi-sheet workbook’s full formatting features and its ability to embed both images and graphs, OriginLab is moving a big step forward. From raw data to final professional report creation, you can now keep all the stages of data processing in a single software.”Antoine Couturier, Ph.D. - Service Recherche, Institut National du Sport, de l'Expertise et de la Performance
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.HG, Oxford, UK
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.CW, Cheltenham, UK
