Hardware DEMO - First Steps

( for Representatives and Customers using the 2680A-DEMO Kit )

  • Install Fluke DAQ Software from your CD
  • Initialize , read, erase PC card in the 2680A
  • Connect the Demo Simulator to Slot # 1 and Slot # 6
  • Connect the “RED” Ethernet cable between your computer and the 2686A.
  • Open the “Sample” or “Demo”. cfg file.
  • Select Isolated network
  • Verify communications
  • Start Scanning
  • Exercise Visual Guide starting on slide #1

  • Knob controls are VDC (9V) and Ohms (3 Mega Ohms)
  • DIO LEDs are connected to DIO 0-2
  • Totalizer switch pulses the Totalizer input at two selectable rates.

Analog connector module

Place in Slot #1

Note:If you do not have the simulator shown above you may use any input type connected

to the analog input connector module for this demonstration. A thermocouple or 9 VDC battery

for example, works well for this demonstration. You will simply need to change the configuration

Load Demo Configuration

Your demo simulator is connected to the system using the configuration

shown below in “demo.cfg” or “sample.cfg” depending on version.

Make certain your modules are in the correct slot. In this case the

PAI is in slot #1 and the FAI in slot #2. If you are not using the demo simulator

You can develop your own .cfg file for the channel you are using.

Set for Vdc 30 Volt scale - (VDC Control on simulator)

Set for Ohms – 2W , 3M scale- (Ohms Control on simulator)

DIO 0, 1, 2 are available for you to set using the

Alarms on channels 101 and 201

This computed channel is set to average channel 201

and channel 101.

Now that you are connected, exercise portions of the Fluke DAQ Program
