The new Graphic-DMM by HACKER-DatenTechnik changes every PDA equipped with a CF or PCMCIA slot into a 5.5 digit dual channel Digital Multimeter.

5.5 digit DMM supports PDAs and all CF slots

(PRWEB) October 20, 2004 -- The Graphic-DMM is a new concept in test equipment that allows a PDA, Notebook, Tablet-PC and all Systems equipped with a CF or PCMCIA slot to be turned into a dual channel Graphic Digital Multimeter with sophisticated analysis capabilities. Smart Analysis software facilitates step-by-step fault investigation with instant display of results and an interactive diagnostic guide. With the Graphic-DMM it is possible to integrate multiple measurement functions into a single hardware and software platform, providing high-level analysis features and a small, lightweight and portable unit.

The Graphic-DMM contains 2 independent Digital Multimeters, connected to a Compact Flash type I interface. The DMMs are Galvanically isolated from the CF interface for safety and the two channels also isolated from each other. Each channel has its own ADC and front-end circuitry.

This means that each channel is floating relative to the other, and to the host, allowing simultaneous measurement of signals with widely different ground potentials

The Graphic-DMM adds to the functionality normally found on classic DMMs, in particular it allows sample rates from lower than 1S/s up to 40kS/s on each channel and has a 1Mbit internal buffer (16kSamples pairs) allowing long data record depths and oscilloscope-like capabilities. Using host software it is possible to create a versatile instrument that can perform accurate DC measurements, display signal waveforms and allow triggering and data logging.

Lots of Applications

Laboratory: Portable (in your PDA), multichannel data capture systems with high resolution and precision, with high data logging capacity. Applications include education, automobile industry, petroleum and natural gas industry, manufacturing industry.

Production: Networkable mobile or fixed measuring systems for Quality Control (QC) and general plant supervision and production.

Service: Portable (in your laptop), universal and special measuring equipment (multimeter, scope) for radio, TV, HVAC, automobile servicing and repair.

In combination with a CF-PCCARD adapter the Graphic-DMM can be used in every PC-Card slot equipped computer like Notebooks, Tablet-PCs or PC104 based embedded systems and with an Elan PCI-PCCard adapter it can also be used in every standard Desktop, Compact PCI and PXI systems.

The Graphic-DMM costs 615 EUR and includes a ready-to-work DMM application. Optional are special DMM drivers available for Windows CE, Pocket PC, VB, VC and LabVIEW for PDA. Special OEM custom applications and OEM hardware modifications are available on request.

A detailed User Guide is also available on request.
