Introducing WebDAQ Internet Enabled Data Loggers

In an age of mobile applications and connected devices, the ability to access your data remotely is more important than ever. Digilent’s WebDAQ offers a new data logger architecture that allows configuration and access to the data from anywhere in the world.

Remote Configuration and Monitoring

MCC WebDAQ Series internet data logger devices offer a complete and easy-to-use remote monitoring and data acquisition solution. With an embedded web server, users can configure and run simple to complex data logging operations, log data, set alarm conditions, and view the data in real-time from anywhere on an internet-enabled device.

MCC WebDAQ 316 Data Logger - 16 Thermocouple Inputs

WebDAQ series data loggers are available with three different measurement frontends:

MCC WebDAQ 316 enables direct connection of up to 16 thermocouples for precise temperature measurements. 24-bit resolution, built-in Cold-Junction-Compensation (CJC) for thermocouple types J, K, R, S, T, N, E, and B, Open Thermocouple Detection (OTD), up to 75 S/s sample rate per channel.

MCC WebDAQ 504 is perfect for sound & vibration monitoring featuring four simultaneously sampled 24-bit inputs for direct connection of dynamic IEPE accelerometers and microphones. Up to 51,2 kS/s sample rate per channel, signal bandwidth up to 25 kHz, inherent aliasing filters, 19 V max. IEPE compliance voltage, AC/DC coupling, ±5 V input range.

MCC WebDAQ 904 has four 24-bit universal analog inputs accepting voltages up to ±60 V, current measurements up to ±25 mA, thermocouples, RTD temperature sensors (Pt100, Pt 1000), resistance measurements (up to 10 kΩ), and bridge-based sensors (quarter-, half- and full-bridge, and other powered load cells). Up to 100 S/s sample rate per channel.

 Virtually Unlimited Storage

Record all the data you need with 3 GB of internal storage, microSD card input, support for USB flash drives, FTP servers, and mapped network drives. Data can be viewed and downloaded remotely and can be converted to .CSV, .UFF, or .WAV files compatible with any analysis software.

Integrated Hardware and Software

Built on Linux and a quad-core embedded processor, WebDAQ represents a platform for future expansion. The WebDAQ Series provides an all-in-one package with no software to load, and no additional hardware to buy. The WebDAQ web server is optimized for both desktop and mobile devices. Users can perform acquisition and web data logger tasks from phones, tablets and laptops with a single, intuitive user interface.

Flexible Triggers, Alarms, and Notifications

Synchronizing data to an event of interest is critical to many data acquisition applications. The WebDAQ supports both triggers and alarms to respond to event conditions, control digital outputs, and send notifications through email or SMS messages.

RESTful API Interface

A RESTful API is provided to start and stop an acquisition, retrieve data in real-time, access information about the system, schedules, and jobs, and to get the status of an acquisition and alarm(s). With the RESTful API, data from WebDAQ devices can be displayed on any popular data dashboard, cloud application, or custom program.

Easy Setup – Powerful Capabilities

Jobs are the building block of WebDAQ. The ability to define different data logging jobs, or tasks, and add them to schedules unleashes flexibility not seen in any other remote data logger. Whether you want to set up a simple logging task or a complex task, jobs and schedules make it easy and straightforward.


WebDAQ Schedule - Configure the Data Logger


What is a Job? The basic building block of WebDAQ, a job defines channel configuration, logging options, start and stop conditions, and alarming.

What is a Schedule? A Schedule is a collection of jobs that gives flexibility to dynamically change data logging attributes, such as sampling rate, active channels configuration, or alarm levels.

Example: Switching from static acquisition to dynamic acquisition. Users can easily setup a job for a slow, static acquisition and a fast dynamic acquisition. When a trigger condition is met (i.e. over/under alarm), Job 1 (slow acquisition) ends and Job 2 (fast acquisition) begins. When the trigger condition returns to normal, Job 1 can be restarted.


WebDAQ Dashboard - Display Data in Realtime


Clear, Concise, Data Displays

WebDAQ users don’t need to rely on the small screens and difficult to navigate displays of most other loggers. With WebDAQ’s intuitive web interface, users can easily see their data and alarm conditions in real time or after the acquisition is complete.

The MCC WebDAQ Series is available from stock at Elfa Distrelec A/S, the authorized distributor of Digilent in Denmark.
