News: QtDMM was relicensed from GPL version 2 to GPL version 3 (27/04/2014)
Reason for the license change was a request from http://sigrok.org/. They want to incorporate
QtDMM (or part of it) into their codebase. We came to the conclusion that further development on QtDMM will
be done by the folks from sigrok. QtDMM is 13 years old now and I hope the people from sigrok keep it alive
for another few years...
Update Sep. 2016: It turned out that the sigrok guys seem to be doing absolutely squat with QtDMM.
Looks like I'll still have to maintain it for a while. QtDMM is not dead yet ...
QtDMM is a DMM readout software including a configurable recorder. A friend of mine asked
me for a DMM readout software for Linux as the DOS software he had was not really usable. Additionally it
featured numerous hefty translation errors in the GUI. To help him out I wrote this little piece of software.
The recorder features manual start, scheduled start (at a given time) and triggered automatic start when given
thresholds are reached. Additionally you can start an external application when given thresholds are reached.
It was initially written for Metex (and compatible like VOLTCRAFT) multimeter which use an 14 byte protocol.
Later several more protocols have been added. For more information on the currently supported DMM's have a look at
the preset table.
With version 0.8 the ability to display more than one value from the multimeter was added.
