ReDAQ® Shape Software for MAQ®20: Data Acquisition & Control
User Friendly, Fast Learning Curve, Create Custom HMIs
Dataforth offers ReDAQ Shape software for
MAQ20 as an easy and efficient development
tool for use with the MAQ20 Industrial Data
Acquisition and Control System. This out-ofthe-box software enables users to create, save,
and open graphical user interface projects for
test, process, data collection and data analysis
applications. Built-in functions in the software
are pre-configured and can be used as is. Just
three easy steps are required to create data
acquisition and control projects using 65 high
quality tools and powerful MAQ20 functions.
ReDAQ Shape for MAQ20 enables users to
interact with the Dataforth PID loop controller.
In addition, the software provides an effective
way to configure and customize MAQ20
functions for specific application requirements.
The toolbox tools are easily moved, re-sized,
cut, copied, pasted, and deleted.
Based on programming tools incorporated from
Microsoft Visual Studio® and National Instruments
Measurement StudioTM, ReDAQ Shape software for
MAQ20 has a very short user-learning curve and
offers integrated, across-the-board applicability for
data acquisition and control applications.

IPEmotion Software: The Next Step for Test & Measurement
Advanced Features, Multi-Language, Multi-Vendor
IPEmotion is a very advanced, intuitive, high
performance data acquisition / test and
measurement software designed specifically for
industrial and R&D applications. Now available
with an interface to the MAQ20, this powerful
new generation software provides synchronized
data acquisition and is easily adaptable to all
customer specific requirements.
These requirements may include device
configuration, data acquisition measurement,
visualization, and analysis; to meet them,
IPEmotion provides automatic recognition of
connected devices, automatic configuration of
all channels, automatic start of measuring, and
instant visualization of all measurement values.
Control
MAQ20 and IPEmotion measurements include
temperature, current and voltage, strain,
pressure, frequencies and rotational speeds,
and logging and diagnostic data.
To enhance ease of use and increase productivity,
the versatile IPEmotion software is available in seven
languages: English, German, French, Italian, Chinese
(traditional and simplified), Korean, and Japanese.
IPEmotion communicates with the MAQ20 via
a Plug-In driver. The software enables many
functions to be integrated by linking external .dll and
Visual Basic Script (.VBS) files to the application.
Script is a powerful tool which enables users
to automate the measurement process and to
change menus, settings, analyzing procedures,
and other aspects of the software.

sensors located in the "field" to monitoring
and control equipment, usually computers,
­located thousands of feet away in central
control areas. The transmitters accept a wide
range of inputs, including millivolt, volt,
milliamp, thermocouple, RTD, potentiometer,
and slide wire. They operate on power from a
two-wire signal loop and modulate the supply
current to ­represent the input s­ ignal within a

DSCA High Performance, DIN Rail Mount
Isolated Signal Conditioners
Each Instrument Class DSCA module provides a single channel of isolated analog input or
output for use in data acquisition, test and measurement, and control system applications. Input
modules accept analog voltage or current signals from all types of field sensors and sources, then
filter, isolate, amplify, linearize, and convert the signals to high-level analog outputs. Output
modules accept high-level analog voltage signals from a system, buffer, isolate, filter, and amplify
them, and then provide current or voltage output to a field device.

Wide Selection of Industrial Loop Isolators and Transmitters
DSCL and DSCP products form a complete
family of loop and universal AC/DC-powered
isolators and transmitters in DIN rail,
component, and head-mount packages. The
family includes basic loop-powered isolators,
wide-range AC/DC-powered isolators and
transmitters, and fixed-gain or hardware and
software configurable models. They accept a
wide range of voltage, current, thermocouple,
and RTD input signals, then filter, isolate,
amplify, linearize, and convert them to
high-level analog outputs for use in data
­acquisition, test and measurement, and
control system applications.

Industrial Data Communication Products
Industrial LANs and data communication systems stretch over long distances, inside and outside,
with signals exposed to electrical transients, noise, ground loops, power surges, and lightning.
Commercial communication equipment often is not designed for use in these environments, which
can lead to ­unreliable signal quality, damage to expensive peripherals, computers and other online equipment, and production downtime. Our heavy duty products "harden" and protect these
systems, and can extend ­communications for many miles without expensive low-capacitance cabling.

Dataforth Expands
Dataforth has expanded into a second building,
increasing the company’s total space to
30,000 square feet. Located in Tucson, this
facility houses all manufacturing operations
from surface mount to final test, as well as
warehousing, shipping and receiving. The
original building continues to house engineering
and R&D, along with sales and marketing.
The additional space gives Dataforth
tremendous flexibility as business continues
to grow. Inside space can be reconfigured as
needed and with 2+ acres there is also plenty
of outside space for additional expansion.
Dataforth’s full product line includes
1200+ data acquisition and control, signal
conditioning, and data communication products
designed specifically to protect measurement
and control signals and connected equipment
from noise, transient power surges, destructive
ground loops, and other industrial hazards.
All Dataforth products are tested 100%
multiple times and all are manufactured in
the USA.
