Measurement technology software is used, among other things, for the simple acquisition of measurement data, which is then visualized. Metrology software also takes over the evaluation and analysis of the acquired measurement data. In addition, the test sequence and the monitoring of machines, plants and processes can be automated with metrology software.
The software for measurement technology listed here is based on the methods for measuring physical units such as mass, pressure, length, force, current, time or temperature. The field of metrology also includes the development of measuring systems and the correction of measurement deviations or the correction of undesired influences as well as the calibration / adjustment of measuring instruments. Metrology - in conjunction with control engineering and closed-loop control ("measurement control") - is the prerequisite for automation technology. In manufacturing, measurement technology is also referred to as production measurement technology. The products presented range from software tools for evaluating measurement uncertainty, to solutions for pressure surge calculation in pipelines, to systems for determining and evaluating radiators.
