catmanAP: Measurement Made Simple

CatmanAP is a software suite used with HBM’s range of data acquisition hardware. It simplifies measurements by automatically configuring sensors with TEDS technology, allowing sensors to be plugged into any channel on any DAQ without concern for setup errors. Additionally, CatmanAP allows the user to define fast, default, and slow sample rates on a per-channel basis, and provides the ability to save measurement data in multiple formats, including Excel, NI DIAdem, and MATLAB. CatmanAP also includes a video module that supports built-in, USB, and ethernet cameras.
