Gantner Instruments software tools such as test.commander and ICP100 can accomplish various tasks. Specific settings are applied to accomplish these tasks. This section provides complete software project examples with these settings configured. Use these examples along with our library of quick start guides for complete details.
We recommend having the latest software version installed in order to use these examples: Software Downloads
Summary: This project shows how to read a channel from one Q.bloxx module to another. Both Q.bloxx modules must be located on the same UART under the same controller. In this example, 2 x set points located in an A101 are replicating 2 x thermocouple channels from an A104 module.
Q.station Data Logger Interfaces
Summary: There are various methods that the Q.station can use to save data. This includes data transfer via FTP, saving to a network drive, and sending via E-mail. This project shows how to configure those settings inside a Q.station.
Q.station GPS Data Arithmetics
Summary: A GPS can be connected to a Q.station as a form of synchronization. Other information that the GPS obtains can be collected as a virtual channel. This project shows how to obtain this information inside a Gantner controller.
Q.station Modbus Interface
Summary: The Q.station can be a Modbus master to other Modbus slave devices. This project shows how to configure the USB port on a Q.station as a Modbus RTU port and how to create a virtual variable to read Modbus registers.
Synchronization via SNTP
Summary: A Gantner controller can obtain its synchronization from a time server via SNTP. This project shows how to configure that SNTP interface.
WriteOutputVariable Function – Q.station
Summary: This function is used to read an input variable within a Gantner system and write it to an analog output located on the same system. In this example, a Potentiometer input from an A101 is being written to a set point located on an A104. If an analog output is available, it can be written directly to that AO.
Activating Zero/Tare Functionality
Summary: A zero and/or tare calibration can be performed on every real variable. This project shows how to configure a voltage and potentiometer channel with this type of calibration.
