DAQWORX Data Acquisition Software Suite helps the administrative department collect and monitor data on each section of the factory, including data on the usage of chemicals, gas, and electricity. A user-developed program written in Visual Basic, Excel macro, etc., transforms such usage data into an easily viewable daily report for efficient operation of the whole factory.

Figure 2 Data Processing Procedure
- DAQWORX monitors and records instantaneous flow rate data from JUXTA and instantaneous power data from POWERCERT in minimum intervals of 1 second.* The trend graph, bar graph, digital meter, etc., are readily available for use, so no programming work is necessary for them, thereby enabling quick system construction.
* The number of connected units and that of channels could affect the minimum interval of data acquisition (DAQWORX DAQLOGGER can collect data from up to 1600 channels).
- While DAQWORX integrates instantaneous flow rate data from JUXTA, it acquires cumulative integrated energy data from POWERCERT. The integrated data are saved as a report file in the text or Excel format every hour on the hour. Such files are very useful for daily reports.
* For example, a user can develop a report program in Visual Basic or Excel macro that opens 25 report files created by DAQWORX every hour on the hour, from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. of the next day, in order to compute the usage for each hour in a 24-hour period. Such usage data can be arbitrarily arranged and presented in a daily report for printing.
