LabPac Brand - Invents an Industry

Introduced in 1981 along with IBM's personal computer, the LabMaster and LabPac data-acquisition and control products were the world's first personal computer products to be used in the scientific, laboratory and education fields.

A pioneer in the industry being the first PC installable device driver, first data acquisition hardware and software programming environment and the first implementation of a personal computer for virtual instrumentation.

With LabPac's Scope software module turning a 1981 personal computer into a virtual oscilloscope - it was the forefront to today's modern function library and virtual instrumentation industry.

LabMaster DPCI

VPM Laboratory Instrument

LabPac allows you to use your computer as a "Versatile Virtual Instrument", which can perform traditional tasks of multi-meters, oscilloscope, logic analyzers, spectrum analyzers and a host of other "traditional" measurement tasks in addition to creating and providing the tasks of analog, digital, clock and frequency signal generation. Instead of several "discrete" instruments on your bench-top, you can use Scientific Solutions LabPac hardware/software/Virtualization products to provide you with the measurement and signal generation instruments from a single workstation.

What Instruments does your work bench have?

A work bench may have many different pieces of equipment, including instruments used to create signals and instruments used to make measurements. The student, lab technician, educator, researcher, hobbyist, physician, scientist, etc. - all may require similar instruments or may need very specific instruments for their tasks.

Examples of instruments that make measurements are: Voltmeter to measure AC or DC voltage; Ammeter to measure electrical current; LCR meter to measure inductance, capacitance or resistance; Frequency Counter to measure periodic digital signals; Logic Analyzer to measure digital signals; Spectrum Analyzer to measure frequency content; and the Oscilloscope to observe and measure analog or digital signals.

Examples of instruments that create signals are: Power Supplies to create AC or DC voltages, Waveform Generators to create sine, square, triangle and other waveforms; Clock generators to create digital clocks; Frequency Generators to create spectrums; Music Synthesizers to create music; Digital Pattern Generators to create digital patterns; Audio Playback devices like to play audio.

Students use LabPac software to control their experiements and Learn!

For example, lets say you're an educator creating a student learning experience that requires a waveform generator to create a signal, a voltmeter to measure a voltage, and an oscilloscope to view the signal. For each student, you would need three pieces of equipment. And if you wanted to add another signal source or a different measurement, you would add additional equipment for each student.

With Scientific Solutions LabPac data acquisition and control products you could have a custom built "environment" that provided all these capabilities from a single computer workstation containing the Scientific Solutions data acquisition and control hardware and running the LabPac software. Same is true for the researcher, lab technician or factory automation specialists. And by just changing the software you could add or remove additional"virtual" instruments to the test bench.

An educator can create a complete learning experience, using the computer to be a virtual electrical, mechanical, biological, chemical or physics lab with hands on experiments using the instrumentation provided by the Scientific Solutions LabPac hardware and software.

Researchers use LabPac software to optimize their experiements and Discover!

A researcher can use the LabPac data-acquistion and control system to create, configure and run experiments - providing stimulus signals and acquiring data. As an example, Scientific Solutions LabMaster and LabPac products are the foundation of computer-based Electrophysiology research with products like the LabMaster EP Suite, which is for whole-cell recording and data analysis, providing the tools for designing and running voltage-clamp and current-clamp experiments with a host of analysis, filtering and data editing tools.

Factory's use LabPac software to Build!

Factory automation using Scientific Solutions hardware and software can provide greater versatitilty than the more traditional programmable controller technology.

Routines can be fully automated with the Scientific Solutions hardware/software creating signals, making measurements and then making decisions in software of actions to take, which can include creating other signals to turn on/off equipment, instructing cameras or microscopes to take pictures, sounding alarms, sending email, etc. This is often done in automated assembly or automated test lines.

Traditional Instruments Explained

Traditional instruments are pre-defined, pre-constructed stand-alone pieces of equipment that are typically made to perform a signal task.

Consider for example the digital multimeter; which can be in the form of a hand held or bench-top device with a display and a knob to select a measurement to make. Or the traditional oscilloscope, which again is a piece of equipment with various knobs to select measurement ranges and a display to view the signal or interest.

Each of these traditional designs are "hard-coded" in that they are each designed to perform their desired tasks.

Because of their "hard-coded" function, the traditional instrument equipment are limited in their versatility. That is, they can only do what they were designed to do, albeit very well - but they can't perform other tasks. If you desire other tasks, you have to acquire another piece of equipment.

Developers use LabPac software to Create!

Scientific Solutions LabPac data acquisition and control software includes a full featured function library that is the Application Programming Interface (API) for all of the Scientific Solutions data acquisition hardware products. The LabPac library works with the hardware device drivers to provide a fast, efficient and optimized application program environment.

Simple yet powerful functions handle event counting, precision timing, analog input, analog output, digital input and digital output.

Repetitive functions, such as multiple sampling of analog inputs, can be done using hardware interrupts, external triggers, pacer clocks, or timed intervals. The routines are designed to utilize the full power of Scientific Solutions products.

The LabPac library is cross-platform providing DOS, Windows and Linux application programs with a consistent library of function calls and virtualization routines.

Virtual Instruments Explained

With all the instruments required for your work, one can be surrounded with a bench-top cluttered with traditional stand-alone equipment.

Enter the idea of "Virtual" instruments. The term "Virtual" in this context means that the instrument does not physically exist as a stand-alone piece of equipment like a traditional instrument. Because of their "hard-coded" function, the traditional instrument equipment are limited in their versatility and can generally perform tasks they were designed to do. The Virtual instrument plays upon the idea of a computer outfitted with data-acquisition and control hardware along with sophisticated software.

The data acquisition hardware provides the Analog-to-Digital, Digital-to-Analog, Digital-I/O, and Counter/Timer features that then can perform as multi-meters, oscilloscopes, logic analyzers, spectrum analyzers, etc under control of the data acquisition software. By simply changing the software, you can change the function of the hardware. No more one-instrument-does-one-thing but instead you have one-instrument-does-many-things.

LabPac software includes full support for A/D, D/A, Digital I/O, Counter Timer functions, programmable software gains, gain-array sequence tables, data streaming to disk, and graphic routines and a host of data handling features.

All Scientific Solutions products contain the embeded LabPac acquisition and control hardware that works in conjuction with the LabPac software routines.

The current version has an expanded library that includes function calls from the original LabPac DOS product in addition to new calls to support advanced Bus-mastering and COMEDI (COntrol and MEasurement Device Interface) function calls. Scientific Solutions LabPac software was available several years before competing products from other manufacturers, and continues today to be the longest sold and supported data-acquisition and control software in the industry.

LabPac for DOS is implemented as a TSR and integrates both the device driver and library and is callable from all DOS languages such as C/C++, Fortran, BASIC, Pascal and assembler. LabPac for DOS (introduced in 1981) was the world's first data acquisition programming library created for the IBM pc. It has stood the test of time and is still available and supported for our DOS customers

Labpac for Windows uses Scientific Solutions sophisticated 32-bit and 64-bit ring-0 kernel mode device drivers and DLL function library. The LabPac32.DLL, the application programming interface, is a consistent library that is used across the Scientific Solutions product line. This means for example, if you have a LabPac32 based application running on a LabMaster DMA ISA card, it could run with little or no modification on a LabMaster PRO PCI card - providing an easy migration path from one technology to the other. Using a standard DLL model, LabPac libraries allow any language that runs under Win98, 2000, XP, Vista, Win7 or Win8 to access its functions including C/C++, C#, VisualC, VisualBasic, BorlandC, etc.

LabPac data-acquisition software for Windows includes the original DOS function calls and adds the full COMEDI library

Virtual Scope

Since 1981, Scientific Solutions has been offering Versatile Virtual Instruments for the laboratory bench top. LabPac Scope, introduced in 1981, made your IBM PC and PC-DOS computer into a two channel digital oscilloscope.

We've come a long way since those C:> DOS days and flipping between text mode and graphics mode and today's graphical windowing environment enhance the Virtual Scope beyond the capabilities of many of the traditional stand-alone instruments

Scientific Solutions PowerTag® technology is embedded in the LabPac library. PowerTag works within LabPac to provide sophisticated data tagging such as with the LabMaster PRO Analog and Digital Output signals. With PowerTag, the data to update is automatically selected and "tagged" when the LabPac call is made to perform an Analog Output or a Digital Output. This "tagging" allows for the Analog and Digital data to be packed in memory in the desired order with the destination tag data embedded with the sample data. The on-board processor of the LabMaster PRO card uses the tag data to determine the destination function (Analog Out 0, Analog Out 1, Digital Out, etc.).

Scientific Solutions' products continue to set the industry standard for quality and versatility in the lab as well as in OEM applications. From controlling the testing on the Spectra camera line, to monitor the progress of the worlds Olympic and professional athletes during physical therapy, to an engineering student working on an experiment, we are product of the accomplishments of our users.

Since 1974, Scientific Solutions has maintained a commitment to the scientific and particularly the educational fields and it's uniquely able to capitalize on years of technical expertise and manufacturing know-how. But the part of our heritage we're produest of is the interest and concern we've always had for the professionals in the laboratory and the job they're trying to do.
