Re: Integrated Lab Measuring and Controlling (Labview, Labjack, ...)

Update. Currently these points are still open: High frequency (> 3 MHZ) sensing with Atmel controller chip (Arduino) Time synchronisation of different (high frequency) meters Running (old) USB-drivers on (old) Windows in a virtual machine to reenable old measuring equipment (typically the Windows dr...

Re: Integrated Lab Measuring and Controlling (Labview, Labjack, ...)

Ok, I got you. Once I want a summarizing synopsis, I have to do it. But these points are stil open (to do this): High frequency sensing with Atmel controller chip (Arduino) Time synchronisation of different (high frequency) meters Maybe a trigger signal e.g. from a pulse generator can be used for ti...

Re: Integrated Lab Measuring and Controlling (Labview, Labjack, ...)

Thank you all for those good contributions to the topic.

Maybe some overviewing this field could do a short summarizing synopsis with the strengths and weaknesses of each measuring approach to provide guidance for the others?

Re: How to figure out the specs of old Rigaku scintillation tube probe?

Unfortunately - as I told before - I've already purchased the x-ray scintillitor tube. Mainly because of two reasons: I have got a small budget, thus I am dependent on maximum-universal measuring insruments. All those 50kV warning postings jared on my nerves. By the way, where have all those 50kV wa...

Re: Integrated Lab Measuring and Controlling (Labview, Labjack, ...)

Yes, but you won't be able to assemble the (high-frequency) data from different instruments correctly by time, then (even if they would allow a data export on USB stick or SD card).

Re: Integrated Lab Measuring and Controlling (Labview, Labjack, ...)

The MegunoLink seems to be a nice insider tip. However I doubt, ATMega Controller can do high frequency sensing like a PC oscilloscope. Last week at cleaning up my old lab stuff I have refound my old USB-PC-oscilloscope. 70MHZ and with Labview driver. Really no bad equipment. However, as it is alrea...

Re: Integrated Lab Measuring and Controlling (Labview, Labjack, ...)

You are right Richard. On the other hand, however, integrated lab measuring on a computer also offers some advantages: Exact time synchronization of different measurements. Producing an integrated data set with all measured variables, that can be analyzed by a statistics software, that allows very s...

Re: How to figure out the specs of old Rigaku scintillation tube probe?

From my (unaware) point of view there basically may be the follwing approaches to measure the power of a ion beam by a scintillator: Using a scintillator for alpha radiation [with Cesium iodide (CsI) or zinc sulfide (ZnS) crystal] Using a dummy target, that will produce gamma radiation, when bombard...

Re: Integrated Lab Measuring and Controlling (Labview, Labjack, ...)

So you "hacked" the vacuum sensor to integrate the bare sensor signal into your lab? That's exactly what I am thinking about. Mainly because high quality lab meters with PC data connection are unbelievable expensive. But if one uses MS Windows as operating system for it, the whole valuable integrate...
