SensorVUE on Windows Tablet

While LoadVUE works exclusively with Load, Force or Weight Sensors, SensorVUE supports a variety of sensors including load, force, weight, torque, pressure, level, temperature and displacement measurements. We are constantly adding new sensors to our product range and we plan to support those sensors in the future.

In addition to all the features supported in LoadVUE Pro software, SensorVUE allows you to zoom into the plot to look at areas of interest closely, it allows you to place different parts of the software in different locations on the screen to create your preferred layout.

Users can also create derived values or virtual sensors from base sensor data (for example, measure force but divide that value by area to create a pressure sensor) and also create a variety of plots in a flexible way. For example. a user can display and log Force and displacement data and create a plot with Force and Displacement on the y-Axis and Time on the x-axis or create a plot of Force on y-axis and displacement on x-axis.

ControlVUE

While LoadVUE and SensorVUE allow a user to get digital information from a sensor, ControlVUE enables a user to control external devices. It enables a user to control a USB Relay with one, two or eight channels to turn on/off a variety of 110V/220V (2 A) devices or to control a USB Stepper Motor's angular position and speed. By coupling a rack and pinion gear system onto the motor, a user can also create a linear actuator. By using sensors and these simple control mechanisms a user can create automated solutions for applications such as bagging, filling and packaging.
