ME-PowerLab3 - Software for the ME Series Boards

ME-PowerLab3 - the software for the ME series boards

Take the short cut to measurements without programming! The software ▸ME-PowerLab3 is a complete virtual measurement lab for the ME series DAQ boards. ME-PowerLab3 offers many useful functions: From simple analog or digital I/O to FFTs, XY graphs, digital filtering or modulations (AM, FM).

The software automatically detects which ME card is in your PC and depending on this hardware, applies the corresponding functions. The input and output to the analog, digital and counter channels of the respective cards are supported. Interrupt control is also supported depending on the ardware features. Recorded values can be represented in different ways, for example as a voltmeter with pointer-representation, values as a list (table) or as a graph.

Using the integrated script engine, all measurements and settings can be carried out automatically.
