|Released Q2-2023||Release date Q3-2023||Release date Q4-2023|
We prepared a variety of tutorial videos for you. By doing so, we want to give you an idea of how easy it is to work with our measurement software OXYGEN. Do you maybe already use OXYGEN? Then we have even more good news for you! In addition to our tutorial videos, you can find many trainings and step-by-step guides on our website. Simply follow the links below.
We are the only manufacturer of measurement technology to offer you the advantage of choosing between Windows and Linux.
Since the new release of our intuitive measurement software OXYGEN 6.2, it now also runs without restrictions on the Linux operating system. Beside Windows, our software now supports the distributions Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 (RHEL8) and Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.
Measurement setups and DMD measurement data are fully compatible between the different operating systems. This means that it is no problem to create a setup under Windows and then use it on the Linux measurement system. Also OXYGEN-Net systems can be built from both Windows and Linux based measurement systems.
Furthermore, it is possible to develop and use OXYGEN SDK plugins with both operating systems. Corresponding examples and documentation can be found on GitHub.
If you have developed your own software based on TRION SDK, you also have the option to use Linux. The programming interface is identical to the Windows version.
Data acquisition is one of the core features of OXYGEN. It is capable of continuous and synchronous acquisition of data from several sources: analog, digital, encoder, CAN, Ethernet, video, GPS and much more.
Data acquisition over CAN is also possible with various TRION(3) modules. Here are only some of the features you can benefit from in OXYGEN:
From OXYGEN 5.7, a new calculation module is available – the frequency measurement.
The second core feature of OXYGEN is powerful data recording. All the acquired data can be stored in one data file with a simple touch on the record button. With the right hardware, you can achieve data rates up to 1 GB/s, you don’t have to bother to lose anything.
With the OXYGEN 6.0 release, you have new possibilities for data navigation with *.dmd-files:
Starting with OXYGEN 6.0, several array channels (e.g. harmonics, FFT, CPB channels, …) can be used in formulas.
The protection mechanism (from OXYGEN 5.5) helps to save your setup against unwanted manipulation. It allows you to password-protect the settings of the following items and functions:
The right visualization gives the data its value. Attractively designed visualization instruments with intuitive and smooth operation.
Are you recording but want to look at a previously recorded measurement file? The OXYGEN Viewer can be opened multiple times parallel to another OXYGEN. Review, reporting, analysis and post-processing with offline math is made convenient for you.
Analysis module for rotating machine’s noise and vibration. This feature turns your OXYGEN into a full order analysis instrument for calculation and visualization of frequency and order spectra vs. speed.
Turn your DEWETRON measurement device into a fully-featured power analyzer. This feature is the core feature of our PA-series devices, but also available for any other device. Its flexibility and feature scope are outstanding on the market:
The matrix sampler is the solution for visualizing the efficiency of your electric drivetrain at different load steps or running speeds online. Create the calculation module directly in your power group. The efficiency map of the drivetrain will be filled up during the measurement.
The sound Level plugin provides online determination of the time dependent sound pressure level, the energy equivalent sound pressure level, freely definable statistical sound pressure levels and many more. This plugin turns your DEWETRON device into the ideal solution for analyzing the acoustical emission of machines, for determining the spatial and statistical sound pressure level distribution in buildings and for long-term noise monitoring.
You like OXYGEN, but it does not cover all your needs? Customize it! We are proud to announce our new plugin interface, which gives you the possibility to add more software functions on your own. Learn more in our OXYGEN SDK brochure.
Use our TRION-BASE, TRION-TIMING or TRION-VGPS module to acquire data synchronously to other measurement devices. Relative time and absolute time synchronization are supported.
The powerful trigger and event system makes it easy to record data in case of events, create marker, set a digital output or make a snapshot of the actual measured data. The user can create different events, each consisting of one or more trigger conditions and one or more actions.
The highly customizable setup also allows the creation of several software channels to meet your purposes:
The real work often begins after the live measurement. To complete this workflow, OXYGEN also supports post-processing and analysis of the recorded data.
If you need to use other analysis software for further data processing, we offer data export for the most common applications and formats.
Do you want to record video data additionally to your sensor inputs? No problem with OXYGEN! Use any USB-cam which is supported in Windows 10 or use our synchronized Manta GigE-cam for frame-by-frame synchronous acquisition.
With this feature, you can synchronize video data to sensor data. The video data can be acquired by a highspeed camera, but also by any other camera.
You are tired of setting up a sensor every time with all its properties? We have the solution: the sensor database is your personal list of sensors which you can simply use in the channel setup
Use OXYGEN for your whole measurement workflow. From acquiring data to post-processing and finally reporting the data. OXYGEN supports you with the creation of simple reports, which you can create very fast:
OXYGEN does not only support local operations like many other measurement software, but also a remote control for setup, acquisition, and measurement. Different options are available:
Live data processing in your own application? The data stream feature makes it possible! Stream the acquired data (including calculated data like power or statistics) via TCP/IP with high speed to one or even more applications.
Many applications require more than one measurement device, sometimes even at different locations. OXYGEN-NET makes it possible, to sum up, all devices to one virtual measurement device. You only need a reliable network connection, and you can simply claim all available nodes and operate it from the main device.
From version 5.3, OXYGEN offers hardware support for Altadt to decode ARINC signals based on PMC-429. It offers an integrated rich database, including Equipment IDs and Labels from the ARINC standard, and can decode an assigned RAW Message Channel. Support of loading user defined databases and online decoding complete the Decoder Plugin.
Starting with OXYGEN 5.4, you can read and store data from MODBUS TCP clients. With the MODBUS TCP plugin, you can read and analyze data from the DUT to determine the internal state compared to the measured values. With this plugin, you can use DEWETRON’s data acquisition software OXYGEN as a monitoring software for MODBUS.
From OXYGEN Version 5.4, our measurement software offers hardware support of Altadt MIL 1553 boards.
This feature is beneficial for the aerospace & defense sector.
This feature allows to acquire CPAD data without the need of a *.dbc-file (from OXYGEN 5.6)
From OXYGEN 5.4 you can use the implemented function generator in our measurement software.
This feature (available from version 5.3) enables you to calculate a Constant Percentage Bandwidth (CPB) spectrum. According to EN61260, octave, third octave or twelfth octave band resolution can be chosen. You can also select the minimum and maximum frequency as well as the optional A-, B-, C- or D-frequency weighting. The result is an amplitude or decibel spectrum with freely definable reference value and level.
Frequency domain analysis at its best! OXYGEN assists every application with its high flexibility and easy usage. Powerful instruments and math calculations are available to get every exercise done:
Calculation module for swept-sine structural analysis like shaker tests. This feature helps you creating bode diagrams of your device under test.
OXYGEN supports two different brands of IMUs (Inertial Measurement Unit) for precise measurement of a vehicle position. GeneSys ADMA and OxTS RT series are the first choices when it comes to ADAS testing equipment.
The OXYGEN Bird’s Eye plugin is the state-of-the-art software plugin to visualize the testing environment of your (ADAS) test within the software. Based on the acquired IMU data, the position and movement of all involved objects are updated online. Using the shape editor, a realistic contour of each involved object (i.e. VUT, GVT) can be created for precise distance calculations between test objects.
You have data sources you want to use in OXYGEN? The Ethernet receiver is the solution. It supports the decoding of UDP-packets into OXYGEN channels to be visualized and recorded together with all your other data. On the other hand, data can be output via UDP streams for monitoring on different instances.
You need the acquired data to be available on the CAN-bus? No problem, the optional CAN-transmit function makes it very easy to serve almost every OXYGEN channel cyclically on the CAN-bus.
Standard CAN does not meet your requirements anymore? Together with Vector CAN adapters and this software option you are ready to use CAN-FD. Data rates up to 8 MBaud can be achieved, with a payload of up to 64 Byte. Changed your mind about the selected signals? No problem, CAN(-FD) messages can also be decoded offline!
The usage of FlexRay was never that easy! With OXYGEN you can read raw FlexRay frames and decode them into individual signals with the support of the FlexRay adapters from Vector (e.g. VN7610). To fully adjust to your needs, the channels for decoding can not only be selected online but it also works offline.
The CAN-OUT is not fast enough for your automotive testbed? Use XCP over Ethernet instead. With this option, the OXYGEN software acts as XCP-slave and serves measurement data to your testbed:
Does your testbed only support EtherCAT as data and control interface? No problem, we also have a solution for this! Together with our TRION-EtherCAT hardware, we can satisfy your needs:
