Yokogawa's IS8000 measurement software

Yokogawa’s IS8000 software synchronizes measurements of several instruments

  • Yokogawa announces the IS8000 measurement software for synchronisation, collection and display of data from various instruments from the manufacturer : oscilloscopes, power analysers, and digital recorders.

The IS8000 software platform enables the synchronisation, monitoring and data logging of multiple instruments from the Japanese manufacturer, using an IEEE1588 PTP, USB or Ethernet protocol. It can display signals from Yokogawa oscilloscopes, power analysers, and digital recorders on a single screen. Third-party high-speed cameras can also be controlled via this interface to adjust the configuration of the test bench or equipment under test based on video images synchronised with the acquired signals.

The IS8000 facilitates the analysis of a multitude of measurements and waveforms from different instruments. The correlation and temporal synchronisation of different curves from various sources gives a more accurate picture of the behaviour of complex systems.

The software synchronises with each instrument individually at all points. The curves corresponding to the different physical events being monitored are thus synchronised.

In conjunction with a Yokogawa DL950 ScopeCorder digital recorder, the IS8000 software allows up to eight measurement channels to be recorded in real time on a PC at a sampling rate of up to 10 MS/s via a 10 Gigabit Ethernet connection. It allows up to 16 independent FFTs to be performed simultaneously, frequency content evaluation, integrated calculations, and application of filters.

Customised reports can be created with the mouse by simply dragging and dropping measurement data and curves. Measured values and acquired waveforms can be shared between employees.

Optional additional software applications are available for further analysis. The software options IS8011 / IS8012 are particularly suitable for flicker and harmonic testing according to IEC61000-3-2, 3-3, 3-11 and 3-12 with the WT5000 series power analyser.
