The Windmill Data Acquisition and Control Programs

Windmill is a modular suite of test and measurement software. You purchase the core programs, and then add extra modules as the need arises. There are no costly upgrade barriers.

New: Windmill 7 measurement software reduced from £145 to £50. Available from our on-line daq catalogue.

Standard Windmill

The standard Windmill suite comprises SetupIML, Logger, Chart, Control Panels, DDE Panel and any one driver. It is currently reduced from £145 to £50. See our on-line data acquisition catalogue for more details.

All the hardware is configured from Windows with SetupIML. Set alarm limits, engineering units, channel names, etc.
Records data from up to 100 channels of any type. You can run several copies of Logger so there is no limit to the size of the system.For long term logging the program will create a separate file for each hour, day or week, and if required can overwrite old data to continue logging indefinitely.
Continously updates graphs showing the changes on chosen channels.
Control Panels
The Analogue Control panel lets you set the levels of output signals in your chosen engineering units. The Digital Control panel provides a set of push-buttons for switching digital outputs.
DDE Panel
The DDE Panel displays data from any type of channel, and acts as a DDE Server. It provides an easy way to share data, in real-time, with third party applications like Excel, Access and Open Office.

If you want to collect real data from a RS232, RS422, RS485 or Modbus device, communicating via the COM port, then our Monitor newsletter subscribers can download a fully working trial of Windmill.
