Standard Software
Standard Software Package TA-WIN and TA-DIL with Data Acquisition and Evaluation

All LINSEIS Thermal Analysis Instruments are controlled through
sophisticated Windows® software.
The complete program consists of three sections:
  • temperature control
  • data acquisition
  • data evaluation

Essential sample information is entered in the data acquisition section.

Features Software:

A) Data acquisition part:
  • Set up of temperature controller with heat up speed, dwell time and cooldown speed.
  • Up to 16 different stages can be programmed
  • Up to 99 cycles can be programmed
  • Different measuring systems for single and dual push rod can be selected
  • Essential measurement data for documentation have to be entered:

Sample name, correction sample name, operator, laboratory, atmosphere, gas flow, sample material, commentary, sample length, selected measuring range, max. temperature, deration of run, sampling frequency.
  • The scheduler for automatic measurement sequences, for up to 16 preprogrammed
    runs can be programmed.

B) Data evaluation part:
  • real time color display
  • automatic and manual scaling
  • time vs. Temperature profils, or time vs. Delta L selection
  • first and second order derivatives
  • analysis save feature
  • foreground/background operation
  • multitasking operation for operation of different instruments or tasks
  • zoom / individual segment display
  • multiple curve / module overlay
  • on-line help menu
  • annotation and drawing tools
  • copy to clip board function
  • post collection editing
  • ASCII export
  • data smoothing
  • baseline file subtraction
  • cursor function
  • statistical curve evaluation (mean curve)
  • print out of table of data and coefficients
  • calculation of Delta L, CTE, relative expansion Delta L / L0
  • curve arythmetic
  • softening point evaluation standard feature

Evaluation section

The evaluation is part of the complete windows software. It features a number of functions enabling a full evaluation of all types of data.
All evaluation and data collection can be performed simultaneously. Data can be corrected using zero and calibration correction. Data evaluations include: absolute length change, relative length change, and coefficient of thermal expansion. A mean curve with statistical analysis can be performed on multiple curves. Graphical displays can be printed on all windows compatible printers or plotters. Data can be displayed and printed in a table format. The software also includes an ASCII export feature.
