DAQ software

Version 2.7.0 [download 32-bit[download 64-bit]

This version was re-compiled under LabVIEW 2013, and some minor modifications were applied. All necessary LabVIEW Run-Times are included into EEE DAQ setup, so it should be installed first. Please remember to make a copy of EEE Data Acquisition.ini before installation, and put it back to EEE Data Acquisition subdirectory afterwards.

Old Versions

Version 2.5.0 [download 32-bit[download 64-bit]

 

Version 2.3.0 [download]

Installation instructions:

1. Make a copy of EEE Data Acquisition.ini file to keep setup configuration;

2. Uninstall EEE Project software;

3. Install LV Run-Time Engine 2011 (Standard) from National Instruments website (http://joule.ni.com/nidu/cds/view/p/id/2534/lang/en);

4. Install CAENVMELib Library v2.30 (http://www.caen.it/csite/CaenProd.jsp?parent=38&idmod=689);

5. Upgrade CAEN USB-VME Bridge driver to latest version (http://www.caen.it/csite/CaenProd.jsp?parent=11&idmod=417);

6. Install EEE Project software;

7. Open folder with EEE Data Acquisition program;

8. Replace default EEE Data Acquisition.ini file with previously saved copy to restore setup configuration;

9. On the first run of EEE Data Acquisition program make sure that all parameters are correct

NOTE: Starting from v1.7.x EEE Project software requires CAEN TDC V1190 firmware Rev0.7. Please update firmware on each TDC in the system!

 

Version 2.1.0 [download]

1. EEE Data Acquisition:
- Added support for Virtual Weather Station (works with dbase.csv file);
- New VWS data type structure (code 7) stored once per run at the beginning of file with last recorded parameterf from VWS dbase.csv file;
- ErrorLog.txt will record warning if VWS dbase.csv file was last updated more than 1 hour ago;
- Front panel layout changed: GPS and VMS controls moved to Configuration tab;

2. EEE Pulse Width Converter:
- Output file format changed to include header with description and Geometry block supported by EEEViewer 2.1

3. EEEViewer updated to version 2.1;

4. New EEE Rate Converter allows to extract event rate into CSV-file

Note on the weather station that we recommend:
- Oregon Scientific Wireless Pro Weather Station with USB upload WMR88 (). As we can't embed direct reading the temperature and pressure parameters from the unit into EEE Data Acquisition program (no access to commercial source code), we extract this information from CSV file produced by included Virtual Weather Station Base Edition v14.01p30 software. One has to set it up to update information once or twice per hour to minimize CPU load. Also check that temperature units set to °C, and for pressure it's hPa.

4. Install CAENVMELib Library v2.22 (http://www.caen.it/csite/CaenProd.jsp?idmod=689&parent=43);
5. Upgrade CAEN USB-VME Bridge driver to latest version (http://www.caen.it/csite/CaenProd.jsp?idmod=417&parent=11);
6. Install EEE Project software;
7. Open folder with EEE Data Acquisition program;
8. Replace default EEE Data Acquisition.ini file with previously saved copy to restore setup configuration;
9. On the first run of EEE Data Acquisition program and make sure that all parameters are correct.
NOTE: Starting from v1.7.x EEE Project software requires CAEN TDC V1190 firmware Rev0.7 or later. Please update firmware on each TDC in the system!

EEEViewer_v1.5 [software download][readme download]
This program is included in DAQ software version 2.0.0.f1.

 

EEE_V15 analysis program [download]

If you use DAQ software version 2.0.0 you do not need this program, this download is already included in DAQ software version 2.0.0.

This new EEE_V15 analysis program (updated on 01-Apr-2011) can be used with older EEE Project software v1.7.x, and does not require upgrade of LabVIEW Run-Time engine.

Installation instructions:
1. Download archive to hard drive and run it to extract files;
2. Run EEE Analizer (LabVIEW wrapper for EEE_V15 program);
3. In Ananlysis Program field change path to point to new version of EEE_V15.exe file.
NOTE: EEE Analyzer v1.7.x does not exclude files shorter than 5KB from analysis. Such files might crash EEE_V15 prgram, and EEE Analyzer stops to responde.
In such case:
1. Run Task Manager;
2. Switch to Processes tab;
3. Sort processes by Image Name;
4. Locate EEE Analazer.exe and press End Process button;
5. Locate EEE_V15.exe and press End Process button

 


EEE Analyzer v 1.0.7 [download]

Fixed bug in decoding procedure of GPS information to give nanoseconds.

Version 1.7.5

Full Project Distribution: EEE Project v 1.7.5.exe

New in version 1.7.5

1. EEE Data Acquisition:
- GPS readout at the beginning of run removed - no GPS structure right after Window-And-Delay data (might be back in the next versions);
- Improved automatic error handling - program will do 3 attempts to recover from CAEN VME-USB Bridge communication errors;

2. EEE Analyzer v1.0.5 included;

3. Recompiled versions with User Data type (codes 10..) added (all compatible with old data):
- EEE HW Address Checker;
- EEE Histogram Builder;
- EEE Pulse Width Converter;
- EEE TXT Converter;
- EEE Byte Order Converter

Programs will just skip such data structures if present in BIN-file, othervice functionality remains the same as before. Users are responsible for proper decoding of such data.

Full Project Distribution: EEE Project v 1.7.3.exe

 

Version 1.7.1

Full Project Distribution: EEE Project v 1.7.1.zip

EEE Project was developed with NI LabVIEW 8.2.1, and LV Run-Time Engine v8.2.1 must be installed before any other EEE application.
Please install CAEN VME Demo as it will install CAENVMElib.dll required for EEE Data Acquisition and EEE HW Address Checker programs.
IMPORTANT: This version requires CAEN TDC V1190 firmware Rev0.7 or later. Please update firmware on each TDC in the system!
EEE Pulse Width Converter uses new functionality provided by this update, and therefore cannot be used to process old data files.

New in version 1.7.1

1. EEE Data Acquisition:
- Geometry page added, please check and modify parameters for your station;
- Geometry, Match Window and Delay information stored in binary file, please refer to EEE BIN Format v1.7.1.xls;
- automatic Convert to TXT at the end of acquisition removed, please use EEE TXT Converter instead;
- Fast Restart added to skip TDC re-configuration in Auto Restart mode;
- Angle control fixed;
- Delay writing bug fixed;

2. EEE Histogram Builder:
- Parameters page added;
- Comment and Mode And Resolution indicators moved to Parameters page;

3. EEE TXT Converter:
- output TXT file shows Geometry, Match Window and Delay information if present in binary file;

4. EEE Pulse Width Converter:
- Time conversion mode takes into account delay between 1PPS trigger and CLR signal to calculate calibration coefficients, and TDC internal delay.
