DB-2X is a simple, compact, two channel interface that enables the user to send measurement data to a PC running SW-2X Imada data acquisition software. Use of DB-2X requires an Imada test stand with -S distance meter, #905691 distance meter cable, Imada force gauge, force gauge RS-232 output cable and a Windows PC with SW-2X software.
Single data mode
This mode simplifies peak measuring tests because it also ‘zeros’ the gauge after sending the data to the computer, thus eliminating the need to reset manually for each test.
Timer acquisition mode
allows users to select a variable timer from 0.5 seconds to 999 seconds. Start data acquisition by clicking the button, then click again to stop, which simplifies start/stop functions by eliminating the need to use computer mouse and screen to control testing. This allows users to focus on the testing rather than the PC and the data acquisition spreadsheet.
As a visual confirmation, the LED lamp will light up for both single data and automatic acquisition modes when data is being sent to the computer.
No external power supply is needed as power is supplied through the PC. Connect Imada gauges to the data input button with correct cable for your force gauge and the computer to the data button with a 6′ DB9 serial cable (included with DB-2X).
DB-2X can also be initiated with a remote switch.
