GEC PinPoint Monitor Software

All GEC instruments are accompanied by our PinPoint software package that includes the following four programs designed for running under Microsoft Windows ® .  The cost for this versatile and powerful software package is including in the pricing for the instrument.

  • PinPoint Monitor (PPM) is the main program used for display, plotting and logging of temperatures. It also supports a DDE server for communicating temperature data to other programs (including LabView) running on the same computer or over a network.
  • PinPoint Settings (PPS) is used to set the Com Port and the configuration file for PPM. Default temperature units of °C, °F, °K or °R can be selected.
  • PinPoint Viewer (PPV) is used to view, plot and export data from logged files.
  • PinPoint Parser (PPP) can be used to create configuration files which enable faster scanning of fewer channels.
