IoT dashboard delivers remote data access to Keithley instruments

Real time dashboards developed by Initial State for data streaming and visualisation have been integrated into the Keithley DAQ6510 and DMM6500 instruments.

Both Initial State and Keithley are Tektronix companies. The integration of the dashboard provides users with easy-to-use functionality, such as remote monitoring, triggering, streaming and data sharing.

The two companies collaborated on the integration which gives a DAQ6510 or a DMM6500 remote monitoring capability, real-time interactive dashboards, triggering and the ability to share data without the need for a PC or external software.

Designed for monitoring, test and data streaming applications, this software as a service (SaaS) platform is able to securely turn data into interactive, real-time, customisable loT dashboards. According to Tektronix, the speed, remote access, and usability makes it possible to instantly interpret data without the need to utilise third party software. Now users can monitor and analyse an experiment remotely in any browser, including those 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 extensive measurement capability, including transient capture, data visualisation, and analysis, says Tektronix.

The dashboard is also compatible with the DAQ6510 data acquisition and logging, multimeter system, which has a touchscreen interface enabling faster set up time, real time monitoring of test status and detailed data analysis on the instrument.

The DAQ6510 with Initial State integration is now available worldwide, except in China for a monthly fee and free use for students. A free 14-day trial is also available.
