This lesson will first show you how to do a simple measurement with Dewesoft X.
The hardware used is a sound card and a webcam.
First you have to download Dewesoft X software from our page. Download and run the Installer.
To follow this tutorial, you should plug in the webcam and choose DirectX camera in the Settings.
The next step is to run Dewesoft X as an administrator.
You can activate the Audio card in three simple steps in Device settings.
- make sure that operation mode is in "Simulation"
- click on simulated devices
- change simulated channels mode to "Sound card''
In the DAQ settings section, you can see you active audio devices.
Even though there is not much instrumentation used in this example, it still gives the user a good example of what can be done in Dewesoft X software.
The following table displays the required hardware and software for completing this lesson.
Sound card, webcam
Dewesoft X, any license
Setup sample rate
At least 1 kHz (the setup sample rate is chosen in Settings -> Global setup - > General -> Setup sample rate; some math modules require higher rates)
In the upper left corner of the screen, you can find two main markers - Measure and Analyse. They are used to switch between Measure mode to acquire the data, and Analysis mode to process the data.
