The JAWS100 data logging software allows the viewing, logging, visualisation and browsing of up to 100 channels of data from the M2400 range of telemetry acquisition modules.
Displaying each value in a resizable window, channels can be setup with user defined algorithms that can be used to calculate a multitude of maths functions. For example, a display can show the value from a single acquisition module or the sum of multiple modules. Visual displays and audible alarms can indicate under and over range as well as loss in communications, low battery and error reports.
JAWS100 can log on demand, at pre-set intervals, on entering and leaving a pre-set overload and during an overload. It creates a CSV file which can be loaded for analysis into software programs such as Microsoft Excel.
The software has a built in web server to provide a summary view page to other computers, tablets, iPads and smartphones etc. using a standard browser.
Once the display channels are defined the user can quickly build graphical pages showing the data in a variety of formats including digital display or bars. Up to eight pages can be defined and the pages easily navigated between. A variety of image formats can be imported, including JPG, GIF, PDF

As a rule of thumb if you want to log at once per second or slower then you can pretty much use any computer. There are some performance settings in the Preference Window that can help the software feel responsive even on slower computers.
See the 'Preference Window' for the following settings.
The speed of your processor and graphics card can make a big difference to how responsive the computer is as you resize the software main window. On faster computers you can enable 'Show Displays' while resizing.
If the software determines your computer is fast enough, it will enable the option of 'Realtime Chart Update'. On slower computers (or logging at high speeds) you may not want to enable this as it can reduce the logging speeds achievable.
Remember that just because the software allows you to log up to 200Hz (5ms interval), depending on the number of display channels, and the complexity of the display channel expressions, you may not be able to achieve the desired rate.
Unfortunately, due to the number of variables in both the computer and the software, configuration it is not possible to accurately predict what is achievable.
For example, the software will not be able to log at 200Hz when 100 channels have been configured.
Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8
The software does not take advantage of 64 bit operating systems nor direct advantage of multi core processors, but is compatible with both
