3500 Series Software

Daytronic's StartPAC 100 is a DOS version, versatile menu-driven software package. It was designed primarily to provide easy configuration and monitoring of a data-collection network of up to 99 Daytronic instrument "nodes" (3500 Series  "N" Option). It can also be used, however, in a "singlenode" environment—that is, when only a single 3500  instrument communicates with a PC.

The latest StartPAC 100 version may be requested free of charge from sales@daytronic.com. It's easy to use, and offers on-line HELP at every step. Once each node instrument has been individually set up and all required network interconnections are in place, the software lets you

  • set communications protocol values
  • assign an instrument "name" to each node, either "manually" or "automatically"
  • verify the network configuration by comparing node instrument assignments to actual attached nodes
  • print the network configuration
  • upload the setup configuration of the currently "open" node to a disk file—a "CLONING" function
  • download a setup configuration stored in disk file to the currently "open" node (if it is of the appropriate type)—another CLONING" function
  • transmit to printer, screen, or disk file the setup configuration of the currently "open" node In addition to its network setup and configuration "cloning" functions, StartPAC 100 offers a number of other valuable utilities. It can emulate a simple ASCII "command and response" terminal, from which the operator may issue any valid command to any specific network node.* It can also display up to 100 data channels on user-formatted display pages.** Displayed channels may be "mixed" from different network nodes. If desired, the software can be instructed to scan only one channel, at a rate that is "as fast as possible." Datalogging can also be initiated via StartPAC 100, and can take place automatically at a rate specified by the user (from "as fast as possible" to up to 24 hours). StartPAC 100 also contains programs for setting up and operating any Model "4K/SPC" Statistical Process Control Instrument (including any specially-modified dual-channel version). This includes display of SPC data and the exporting of SPC data to a destination file that conforms to a specific third-party SPC software package.
