Buckeye Posted September 12, 2017 Share Posted September 12, 2017 Right now I have the following components in my system: 1. Laptop computer with USB port. 2. Black box containing 56K bytes of data. It has an RS-422 port. 3. USB to RS-422 converter (manufactured by Sealevel). 4. RS-422 cable. I need to send commands to the black box on the RS-422. And then I need to transfer data from the black box to the computer on the RS-422 and save the data in a binary file. Some of the bytes coming in will need to be discarded, but most will be saved to the file. I need to design a simple user interface to do this. What is the best data acquisition software to do this with? A long time ago I used a package called "Test Point" by Capital Equipment Corporation to build an RS-485 system. I loved that software, but apparently it is no longer sold. I know LabView is the most commonly used data acquisition package nowadays, but I have heard the learning curve is substantial. An engineer at Sealevel Systems recommended AzeoTech. I have also heard DASYLab is good. Just looking for advice and recommendations.
