Product Description

imc DEVICES allows quick and reliable measurement operation without any need for programming. All measurement parameters can be set on a per-channel basis. The extensive data storage-, triggering- and real-time functions are clearly organized for each device. The measured data are displayed by means of the device’s (alphanumeric) display unit or in any imaginable graphical display mode on the PC monitor connected via the Ethernet TCP/IP.The uniformity of the operating software results in a great reduction of the costs associated with system orientation, training, updating and maintenance. Plus, the reliability of operation is significantly increased. Measurement tasks are easier to solve and can be performed at a lower cost.

The imc DEVICES operating software provides intuitive and secure operations. It is able to directly recognize available hardware and, with only simple configurations, it is quickly ready to handle all of your test and measurement tasks – no complicated programming required.

With just one click, all of measurement data can easily be displayed during the measurement with a PC. The curve window opens automatically scaled and sets the optimal value range. Without influencing the measurement, scaling of the axes and changes to the display formats can easily be made. There are also a wide variety of user-configurable display modes available. Already during the measurement, data can be transferred to imc FAMOS analysis software.
