DataView Hardness Testing Software
DataView Software is an easy-to-use data acquisition utility that is compatible with Newage Indentron, Versitron and AB-9000 hardness testers.  

DataView Software provides a seamless integration for transmitting hardness testing results to a personal computer for data analysis and documentation. The software permits documentation of part numbers, part name, heat number, special order number, load number, furnace number, lab number and up to three user-defined comment labels.  

Access to the software can be security protected so that only authorized users have access. You use the software to select the primary hardness scale you are testing to, plus you have provisions to perform automatic hardness scale conversion. You may even create a user-defined scale for your unique application.

Tolerances may also be established within the software for developing statistical calculations for HI, LO and OK indications.  X-Bar and R Charts can be used to plot High and Low test results.   

Results can be displayed or printed using a serial printer.  Pre-formatted report layouts are supplied including a data printout, data printout with user notes annotations, X-Bar Charts, R Charts, and histogram.

DataView Hardness Testing Software

Users can configure their report format headers. A Print Preview function allows you to view the report prior to printing. The software’s View Menu is used to display up to six different test attributes on your screen: X- Bar/R Chart, Histogram, Tile, Auto Tile, Tool Bar and Status Bar.  These view attributes can be used to customize your screen and how test results are displayed. Users may “tile” up to three individual test files.  A “Start” key on the operating display is used to automatically call the next test.
