Remote monitoring software integrated by Tektronix into Keithley's DAQ6510 measurement acquisition unit

The Initial State’s remote monitoring and data streaming software solution has been integrated by Tektronix into Keithley’s DAQ6510 and DMM6500

  • Keithley and Initial State, both Tektronix companies, worked together to integrate Initial State’s monitoring, streaming and data-sharing IoT platform with Keithley’s DAQ6510 acquisition unit and DMM6500 digital multimeter.
  • This software integration enables remote monitoring of the DAQ6510 and DMM6500 instruments, real-time access to interactive dashboards, triggering and data sharing, without the need for a PC or external software.

Designed for monitoring, test and data streaming applications, this software-as-a-service platform is able to securely turn data into real-time, customizable loT dashboards that are highly interactive. It makes it possible to instantly interpret data without the need to utilize third party software. Now users can monitor and analyse an experiment remotely in any browser – including on mobile devices.

In order to meet testing needs, the dashboard is able to automate triggers and alerts based on incoming data, so the DAQ can proactively send an email or text message based on rules established by the user. The dashboard can also routinely share large data sets by embedding live data within a website. Data can be downloaded and stored for personal use and documentation or shared securely with colleagues or partners.

The dashboard is compatible with the DMM6500 6½-Digit Graphical Touchscreen Digital Multimeter, a touchscreen bench/production test DMM with measurement functions, including transient capture, data visualization, and analysis.

The dashboard is also compatible with the DAQ6510 Data Acquisition and Logging, Multimeter System, which is also equipped with a touch-sensitive graphic interface enabling faster setup time, real time monitoring of test status and detailed data analysis on the instrument.
