DASYLab 2020: Versatile Software for Data Acquisition, control and analysis


The Assistant for Measurement Technology

Monitor, control and analyse with DASYLab

Setting up and controlling a data acquisition application doesn’t necessarily require hours of coding. DASYLab is designed for those who want to get down to work straight away without having to write programs. It’s simple, point-and-click interface lets you set up powerful, sophisticated data acquisition routines quickly and easily. With DASYLab easy-to-use software, you can create your own individual measurement or analysis application in a few minutes.

DASYLab can be used for almost all measurement, testing, and monitoring processes since it is fitted with a wide range of hardware and software interfaces.  From simple measurements up to the automation of entire test sequences – you only need this one tool to reliably record, analyse, visualise and further process signals of all types.

Monitor, control, analyse: More than 120 analysis, control, and visualisation modules are available to you, ranging from individual data acquisition functions to preconfigured standard sequences. You only need this single tool to reliably record, analyze, visualize and process signals of all types.

With 4 different versions, DASYLab is ideally suited for frequently-changing measurement tasks. Check the available versions and how they might suit your projects and tasks.


DASYLab 2020 is out now and here are some improvements:

Multi-monitor layouts and better support for high-resolution monitors

In many applications, it makes sense to work with several monitors. The separation of the control unit, for example via a touch panel, and the display of information can now be easily implemented with the new version. The attention and retention of screen formats, resolutions and arrangements are just as much a part of the implementation as a zoom function that facilitates working with high screen resolutions. The migration of layouts from previous DASYLab versions is seamless so that the new functionality can be used without time-consuming adjustments.

New Modules: MQTT-Publisher/Subscriber

Simple connections to monitoring systems are mandatory in times of IT/OT environments. Whether they are test results or test bench characteristics: Central monitoring, data analysis and, if necessary, the necessary alerting are all implemented in dashboard-based systems today. One of the protocols frequently used to transmit messages to these systems is the Message Queuing Telemetry Transport (MQTT) protocol. In order to integrate DASYLab test benches easily into this world, two modules for these tasks have been included in the standard delivery.

Many other adaptations and additions

Just as important as innovations is the maintenance and adaptation of existing modules and program parts. User feedback from the DASYLab forum or direct customer inquiries often justify these developments. The storage of FAMOS® files has been further improved, the circuit diagram size increased, the statemachine module extended and the Python integration further advanced by integrating the “IDLE” development environment. A detailed list of all changes will be provided with the release of the final version.

Thank you so much for all your help this morning. Endnote works just fine now and I’m enjoying working on this editorial. I am almost tempted to add your name as a co-author, but the journal won’t allow it! Thanks again.
