Digital Viscometer Software

Software Types

You can choose from three types of PC based software…
Software Requirements
Computer Type: Pentium™ or higher PC 16 MB RAM
Operating System: Windows 2000™ or higher (not compatible with Mac OS, UNIX or Linux)
Color / Graphics: VGA graphics card and monitor
Ports: RS-232 serial port for Viscometer/Rheometer Additional RS-232 serial port for optional temperature control Printer port
 
"Loader" programs are supplied with the DV-II+ Programmable Viscometer or DVIII+ Rheometer and allow a computer to download measurement parameters into the instrument. The computer can then be disconnected, leaving the instrument programmed with your custom parameters.
 
The Wingather™ data collection program, for use with the DV-II+Pro, collects data via a PC. The results can be graphed and plots overlaid for historical comparisons. Wingather™ does not offer computer control.
 
Control and Analysis software is used to perform automated, comprehensive analysis on the data collected. Rheocalc™ for the DV-III+: Capcalc™ for the CAP2000.

DV Loader for the DV-II+Pro Programmable Viscometer

This performance parameter software is supplied with Programmable DV-II+Pro Viscometers

DV Loader
DV Loader is a software program that allows specific choices of parameters to be downloaded into your viscometer. It's simple:
  1. Connect your DV-II+Pro to a PC.
  2. Create a custom test program on your PC.
  3. Use DV Loader to download your test parameters for speed, test duration, etc. to the
    instrument.
  4. Disconnect the DV-II+Pro from your PC. Now
    you have a customized viscometer that is set-
    up to run tests for your particular applications.

RheoLoader for the DV-III+ Rheometer

Customize your test preferences for DV-III+ Rheometers

RheoLoader

This exclusive Brookfield software, supplied with the DV-III+, allows you to create customized programs for your instrument, each with as many as 50 commands.

Once a program is downloaded from a host computer, up to 800 data points can be collected and automatically stored in the DV-III+ "on-board" memory.


Wingather V3.0 for the DV-II+Pro & DV-I Prime Viscometer

DVP-80 PC cable (not included) Windows 2000 or higher

Wingather
  • Automates data collection to save time
  • Reduces potential operator error when recording data
  • Create viscosity flow curves (rheograms) and a permanent record of each test
  • Up to five data sets may be plotted and overlaid for product comparisons
  • Viscosity plots can be configured vs. time, temperature, shear rate, and shear stress
  • Data can be saved as a Wingather™ file (Paradox Database) or exported to Excel format
  • Math modeling for yield stress calculations (Bingham Plastic, Casson, Power Law, IPC Paste analysis)
 
This data collection and graphing software provides an easy means to gather tabular data, graph and plot that data, and create permanent test records for analysis.
Use Brookfield's Wingather application software to collect, analyze or record test data in any of five different modes:
 
  • Manual - A data point is taken when the operator chooses.
  • Vari-Speed - A data point is taken when the operator changes the viscometer speed.
  • Timed Stop - A data point is taken at an operator defined time interval.
  • Timed Torque - Data is taken at an operator defined time interval until an operator defined % torque value is reached.
  • Spring Relaxation - Data is taken at an operator defined time interval as the spindle "unwinds" (motor off condition).
 
Data is output directly to your PC. The data can easily be graphed. Overlay plots showing multiple sets of test data are possible.

RheocalcT for the DV-II+Pro Viscometers and DV-III+ Rheometers

DVP-80 PC Cable (not included), Windows 2000 or higher, *Requires (optional) HT-106 cable if used with Thermosel accessory

RHEOCALC
 
Automate your sample testing for maximized accuracy, reliability and work efficiency.
 
RHEOCALC

Brookfield's powerful RheocalcT application software empowers your DV-II+Pro and DV-III+ Rheometer to provide fully automated and highly sophisticated testing. RheocalcT over-rides the DV-III+'s internal firmware and allows a dedicated computer to control the instrument so other work can be done while the tests are running.

After testing is complete, RheocalcT can analyze that data, generate multiple plot overlays to compare test studies, print tabular data, run math models for comparative "fit" analysis, and perform other important time-saving routines.

 
  • Powerful scripting language provides for simple to complex data collection programs
  • Provides looping functions for repetitive tasks
  • Built-in visual prompts for selecting spindle geometry, speed, shear rate, etc.
  • Automates data collection to save time and eliminate operator error
  • Provides instantaneous viscosity flow curves (rheograms) and creates a permanent record
  • Up to five data sets may be plotted simultaneously
  • Data can be saved as a RheocalcT file (Paradox Database) or exported to Excel format
  • Math modeling for yield stress calculations (Bingham Plastic, Casson, Power Law, IPC Paste analysis.
  • Viscosity plots can be configured vs. time, temperature, shear rate, and shear stress

CAPCALC for the CAP2000+ Viscometer

(Includes PC Cable), Windows 2000 or higher
CAPCALC
 
Turn Your CAP 2000+ Viscometer Into A Sensitive, Accurate Rheometer

When advanced sample analysis is required, Brookfield’s Capcalc32 application software can “control” the CAP 2000+ Viscometer from any PC. Capcalc32 software provides automatic data capture and graphical data display to facilitate analysis of test samples. The software allows control of a sample’s temperature for integrated viscosity/temperature tests between 5°C and 75°C or between 50°C and 235°C, depending on the model you choose. It also allows the user to specify speed ramps and/or temperature ramps for more rigorous material testing.
