Print capability. Print trend charts and alarm status infor¬mation from a local PC or from the Fluke DAQ web view.
Web view. In addition to current readings, the web view feature allows users to display trend charts and the alarm screen in a web browser. Four web clients allow password secure connections from up to four remote users simultaneously.
Web control. Instrument scanning can be started and stopped remotely from the Web view screen in a browser, using one of the four thin web clients within Fluke DAQ.

Alarm pages.  The Fluke DAQ alarm page gives the operator a full page view of historical and present alarm conditions. The opera¬tor has full control over alarm acknowledgement function and can select filters for viewing specific channel alarm history by channel or date range. Alarm conditions may also be emailed to users for immediate notification of system status.

Off-line operation. Instruments can be left scan¬ning when the Fluke DAQ 6.0 application shuts down. Start the program again and Fluke DAQ 6.0 software reconnects to your instruments and resumes data retrieval and control.
