SW-1 is a highly customized Excel spreadsheet specifically designed for capturing and analyzing real-time data from force gauges with a RS-232 port.
SW-1 allows real time data from RS-232 instruments to be input directly into any Windows program – including Microsoft Excel. SW-1 inputs gauge readings in real time and provides a running log of all force measurements along with a chart of the data as well as statistical information including Min, Max, Mean, Median, Standard Deviation, Average Deviation and Variance.
Complete control of the gauge is provided through a set of “buttons” on the spreadsheet that enable easy editing of the sampling rate, force measurement units, peak/real time, tare and power off.
Other features include a memory download option for Z2, Z2-DPU and Z2H gauges only. If desired, the entire stack can be saved to disk, analyzed or cleared. Because all data is entered directly into a standard Excel spreadsheet, you are virtually unlimited in your ability to analyze your force gauge data using all of the powerful tools available in Excel.
