Comfortable control software

for DC sources by ETS

ET System electronic developed their own operating software for its three model series of DC sources
This software simplifies the operation and programming of the devices, extends functionality and
even lowers personnel costs at the same time.

Logically structured, comfortable to use
The software screen is divided into two basic areas: The upper display and the lower settings field.

Upper figure: A look at the software during a simulation

Fields for the setting values and a screen for the graphical history of the curves are depicted in the display
field. The current curve can be copied with a right click on the display field and transferred to the Clipboard
of your computer; the same applies to the current data, for example, for further analysis in Excel.

Free demo version available

A functional demo version is available for all interested parties after a short registration in the download
area of ET System electronic.
A paid license key is needed to control an actual device and test the software in real-time usage scenarios.
This license is free for beta testers. Interested parties need to send only a short e-mail to ET System electronic
to receive your free license file. Beta testers are thus not only able to fully test our software, any comments
and suggestions for improvements also will impact the final release.
