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.

 

Programming languages

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?

I found the training to be hugely beneficial. The delivery was clear, concise, energetic and good humoured. Definitely a good skill based introduction to EndNote, while the notes given on the day will provide a most useful refresher of what was covered.

“Looking online for a software that would perform the particular task we need at the moment (resolution of overlapped Gaussian-shaped peaks), I was glad to find out that a fully functional trial version of OriginPro was made available by your company. Also, watching one of the tutorial videos, all commands and short-cuts I needed to get my results were shown there. Very handy and a time-saver.”

I can only say I wish all suppliers were as helpful as you.
