DewesoftX 
Award-Winning Data Acquisition Software

DewesoftX is an award-winning data acquisition software for test & measurement and monitoring. Experience data recording, signal processing, and data visualization like never before.

DewesoftX DAQ software received multiple international awards, is innovative and easy-to-use, but at the same time very deep in functionality. Our mission is clear - one software for all test and measurement applications.

What's New in the Version 2021.5?

  • ORDER ANALYSIS UPGRADE: The Order Tracking Analysis module has received a major update with the main focus on performance optimization. It now allows Dewesoft to cover the most advanced rotating machinery applications with even fewer limitations than before. The update introduces a set of powerful new features, such as the ability to perform order extraction versus any reference quantity besides speed. It also enables you to define speed ratios directly inside the software.
  • MIMO SINE SWEEP MODAL TESTING: Sine sweep joins the previously available burst and continuous random methods for exciting structures with multiple shakers via Dewesoft’s analog outputs. This mode, allows you to excite the structure over the complete range of frequencies in a specified band in a more systematic way than with random methods.
  • IMPROVED DATA EXPORT: One of the most widely used export formats, Microsoft Excel (.xlsx), has received a significant improvement. Having Excel installed on the same PC as DewesoftX is no longer required for exporting .dxd to .xsls. Not only that, the export process is now approximately two times faster. Kindly note that this is only valid for the file export type and not the Excel template export.
  • FFT ANALYZER UPDATE: The FFT analysis module, one of Dewesoft’s core dynamic analysis tools, has been greatly improved, making it the most powerful to date. Among the highlights of the new features, you will find the auto spectrum and cross-spectrum calculations with standardized amplitude functions: Linear, Power, PSD, ESD, and ASD.
  • CHANNEL MANAGEMENT AND TAGS: Up to this point, you were able to edit the basic channel parameters. Now with the docked setup, you can access the full channel setup and adjust parameters directly on the channel grid screen. Channel tags have been introduced as a new way for you to group channels originating from any module within Dewesoft, making them easier to find and organize.
  • NEW 3D GRAPH WITH PROCESSING MARKERS: Have you ever wanted to view the full frequency history of a long measurement and understand how that data correlates to time-domain data? The brand new 3D Graph can now display the whole time history of vector channels while having its view perfectly synchronized with the recorder. 
  • SIMPLE REPORTING: The interface for creating simple reports in Dewesoft has received a major overhaul. Report displays are now a separate entity, representing a piece of paper in the format of choice. Since the dimensions of report pages are fixed, all display widgets that get added will keep their aspect ratio when printing, generating a PDF file, or switching between monitors.
  • HISTORIAN DATABASE: Historian is Dewesoft’s time-series database solution for monitoring applications and long-term testing applications. It allows you to monitor raw data (vibration, temperature, inclination, strain, pressure...) as well as data derived from Dewesoft’s math modules (statistics, filters, FFT, etc.) with a self-hosted or a fully cloud-managed service.
  • ORBIT ANALYSIS: Precise rotor movement measurements and advanced analysis tailored for turbomachinery applications. Dewesoft Orbit Analysis is a complete solution that will help you improve operating efficiency, lower wear, and prevent any potential critical failures of your machine.
  • MODAL TEST MIMO SUPPORT: The Modal test module has been greatly improved. MIMO support has been added for evaluating the dynamic behavior of structures. This means you are now able to use multiple modal hammers or vibration shakers. 
  • ​​​​​​​IMPROVED VISUALIZATION: The widget settings tab has been redesigned and features new display options, which improve the readability of data and make displays even more configurable to satisfy every user’s needs. We have also rewritten some of the display widgets to be drawn on GPU for faster performance using the latest DirectX technologies.
  • SYNCHRONISED DATA ACQUISITION AND VISUALIZATION: DewesoftX can acquire, analyze, and visualize data from several data interfaces like analog, digital, counters, CAN/CAN FD bus, XCP, CCP, FlexRay, EtherCAT, Ethernet, and many others.

DewesoftX has been completely rewritten to support 64-bit CPU architecture. The result of this effort is that DewesoftX is now able to use an unlimited number of input channels and is able to address all the available memory of the computer. 

Dewesoft X also takes advantage of all the modern CPU and GPU technologies like multi- and hyper-threading to make complex mathematical calculations and rich visualizations smooth as silk. We offload complex computations to NVIDIA GPUs using the CUDA parallel computing platform which allows us to calculate complex computation at 15 MS/s in real-time.

The result is blazing fast performance and an ultra-responsive user interface that will make words slow and lagging things of the past.

Blazing Fast Performance

User Experience Like No Other

DewesoftX is one of the most user-friendly data acquisition software on the market. With the award-winning user interface and friendly approach it saves time for test engineers and is a joy to use.

The new DewesoftX 2020 release brings unified UI elements throughout the software. We have flattened design elements to make it even more pleasant to the eyes.

The new DS-GRID tabular element is now used in all setup modules. Tools like the auto-alignment of display widgets. Shortcuts for copy-paste of visual displays, undo and redo functions speed up the configuration process of designing your visuals.

With the new release, you also get "check for updates" functionality where DewesoftX will check for the updates on our servers and allow you to upgrade within the software.

User Experience Like No Other

Beautiful Data Visualization

DewesoftX includes many visual displays for visualizing your data. From interactive horizontal or vertical recorders, XY graph, 3D graph, Orbit, Scope, FFT, table, rainflow, Open Street Maps, to just name a few.

All visual displays are pre-built and can be customized with real-time visual feedback during the measurement. Simply drag-and-drop desired visual component to your screen, select the data source, and customize it to your preference. But don't worry! If you are not happy with the displays and appearance you can always change them offline, without altering your measurement data.

Unlimited screens/views can be defined and switched between during the measurement or in post-analysis. Visit the DewesoftX visuals page for a closer look at visuals.

No Hidden Licensing Costs or Fees

We offer a very flexible software licensing model with no hidden costs, yearly renewable contracts, or software upgrade fees. When you buy our data acquisition system the DewesoftX software is always included. The license is stored on the DAQ device. This gives you the flexibility to connect the device to any computer and DewesoftX will automatically read the license from the connected device.

The license is required only when acquiring and storing data using the DAQ device. DewesoftX is completely free in analyze mode. This means that once your data is stored you can share, open, and analyze it with as many people and computers as you need. No additional license is needed. Simply download DewesoftX and open the data file.

The same license applies to remote view clients in distributed measurement applications. You can have unlimited view clients for monitoring the data without any additional software licenses.

Quality Assured With Agile and Continuous Integration Development

We put a lot of effort into searching for a scalable development process that would keep the quality of software at the highest possible level. We looked at Microsoft, Apple, Google. The process is called agile development.

Agile development is a set of values and principles. It increases flexibility and delivery. Software testing is crucial for continuous development. Each line of code is automatically tested with thousands of test cases that are running all the time. For this, we have invented the infrastructure that is called the darkroom.

When a developer changes something in the source code, the darkroom takes over and automatically compiles the new code. It runs the test cases and gives back the results to developers in a few minutes. A complete suite of tests takes a few hours.
