IOtech Support from Data Acquisition Toolbox
Create your own waveforms, measurement and analysis routines, and applications for IOtech DAQ hardware using MATLAB and Data Acquisition Toolbox.
Note: Beginning with R2016a, MATLAB is no longer available on 32-bit systems. Because the existing adapters for IOtech data acquisition hardware are 32-bit only, this hardware is currently only supported by Data Acquisition Toolbox R2015b and earlier. For a list of supported data acquisition hardware, see Hardware Support from Data Acquisition Toolbox.
IOtech® manufactures a variety of PC-based data acquisition and measurement hardware. Use MATLAB as your single software environment to create your own waveforms, measurement and analysis routines, and automated instrument applications for IOTech DAQ hardware.
MATLAB supports IOtech data acquisition hardware through Data Acquisition Toolbox. Specifically, it supports this hardware by downloading and using an adaptor for the toolbox available directly from IOtech. IOtech hardware can also be used from Simulink using the Data Acquisition Toolbox to incorporate live data into your Simulink models.
With IOtech support, you can perform the following tasks in MATLAB or Simulink:
- Acquire data from all analog input channels
- Control and generate data from analog output channels
- Control the digital I/O channels
- Configure the sampling rate of the DAQ hardware
- Trigger the start of your data acquisition
- Find and display the device settings
Platform and Release Support
Using MATLAB or Simulink with IOtech hardware requires installing the 32-bit version of MATLAB whether you are using a 32-bit or 64-bit Windows® machine. The 32-bit version of MATLAB can be installed on a 64-bit Windows operating system.
