MScope 1.08 - Long-Term-Oscilloscope for Metex M36xx and maybe M38xx, M46xx, ME-11

 This page is available in German language too
 
  Introduction

I did not like the software provided with the Metex M3640D, and therefore made a new program which suited me much better. It records one measurement over a period of up to 24 hours, and can manage, store and load up to records.
The results can all be printed and copied into the Windows clipboard using resource-saving metafile graphics, and thus exported easily to other applications.

Anyone who has Corel Draw can install the font 'LCD' and so produce an attractive-looking LCD-like display. Otherwise, the font Arial will be used.

The software is made for my M3640D but may work with similar Metex meters as M38xx, M46xx, ME-11 and of course the same devices sold under different brands, e.g. the RadioShack 22-805.

Here are examples of three curves for rechargeable Mignon batteries discharging into a 1.5V filament lamp. Cyan is a new NiMH cell, Red is a really old 1200mAh NiMH, and Green is an even older 500mAh NC cell.

And this is how printed and copied graphics should appear (reduced scale):

Under Win9x you might need the VB6 Runtimes.

The source code is not in shape for publishing but maybe it's useful for someone:
