The Initial State IoT dashboard excels at data streaming and visualization for remote data access applications.
Keithley and Initial State are both Tektronix companies. The two companies worked together to integrate Initial State's data streaming and visualisation platform with the Keithley graphical DAQ6510 and DMM6500. The integration allows the DAQ6510 and the DMM6500 to provide remote monitoring capability, real-time interactive dashboards, triggering and the ability to share data without the need for a PC or external software.
The Initial State software-as-a-service platform is designed for monitoring, test and data streaming applications. It can securely turn data into highly interactive, real-time, customizable loT dashboards. This makes it easy to quickly interpret data without the need to use third party software.
"Our DAQ customers are being challenged to run longer tests in labs in order to collect large amounts of data," says Chris Bohn, vice president and general manager at Keithley/Tektronix. "This data usually needs to be highly accessible and converted into usable information quickly. Two Tektronix companies, Keithley and Initial State, have collaborated to meet these demands head on."
The dashboard can automate triggers and alerts based on the incoming data. This lets the DAQ proactively send emails or text messages based on the user’s ruleset. The dashboard is also able to share large data sets by embedding live data within a website. Data can then be downloaded and stored.
The dashboard is compatible with the DMM6500 6½-Digit Graphical Touchscreen Digital Multimeter. The DMM6500 is a touchscreen bench/production test DMM with extensive measurement capability, including transient capture, data visualisation, and analysis. It is also compatible with the DAQ6510 Data Acquisition and Logging, Multimeter System, which is complete with a touchscreen interface.
