Windmill Software has released the latest version of its Test Sequence software product, which is able to automate measurement and control tasks by running a text file of commands.

No programming knowledge is required to use the software.

Test Sequence supports a range of hardware devices and transducers.

In addition, the new version features a variety of new commands, making Test Sequence even more powerful, according to the company.

For example, it can now loop several times through a command sequence; check if a condition is true and act accordingly; wait until a specified amount of data has been collected; show instructions to a user; and let a user manually adjust analogue outputs.

Test Sequence understands a total of 47 commands, all specifically for data acquisition and control.

Combining these commands lets Test Sequence perform proportional integral derivative (PID) control; watch for alarms and take appropriate action; send key presses to other Windows programs such as Excel; start and stop data logging according to conditions or the time of day; change the speed of sampling when alarm thresholds are crossed; and ramp values up and down over time.

Test Sequence runs under Windows 7, Vista, XP, 98 and 95.

It requires a Windmill 7 hardware driver, which enables Test Sequence to work with almost any RS-232, RS-422, RS-485 or Modbus device.

Test Sequence also handles USB and Ethernet hardware monitoring thermocouples, pressure transducers, strain gauges, real-time devices and pH transducers.

The new version of Test Sequence is currently reduced from GBP195 to GBP50.
