DACS – Data Acquisition Control Software v8.0+ for MHI Furnaces, Airtorch™ and other devices
“I need my PC to control my process, acquire the data, store and graphically present my results. I want do my projects faster and more efficiently.”
DACS and MHI HMI Dacs features with HIPAN, TRIPAN and XPAN. Direct control from panel on some models, enabling many platforms for data acquistion and control. Please contact MHI for DACS
Do your projects faster. The MHI Data Acquisition and Control Software offers unparalleled control and data management many MHI devices, including Furnaces, Robust Radiators, Thermoplates, Airtorch™ and Microheaters. It is powerful enough to remotely turn ON/OFF your MHI furnaces, download data, create cycle programs, provide graphical analysis and monitor and manage up to 12 MHI heating devices. DACS software is simple to use and easily connects to your COM/serial port with no need for additional hardware. DACS offers the advanced built in data acquisition system combined with PID control. DACS depending on required control features. Equiped with temperature recorder. Will record files that may be coded to record part -number, lot number and date during the process (requires user interaction to determine the numbers). Electronic Recorder unit read only data can be set to network drive. The recording system ssupports protection, retention and retrieval of accurate records throughout the record retention period. Reliable world standard hardware. Multi levels of password protections are allowed.
