QtDMM 0.9.0 (c) 2001-2014 M.Toussaint
QtDMM is a simple DMM readout software including a configurable transient recorder. A friend of mine asked me for a DMM readout software for Linux because he didn't want to use the MS-Windows version which came with the multimeter. To help him out I wrote this little piece of software. The transient recorder features manual start, scheduled start (at a given time) and triggered automatic start when given thresholds are reached.
If you call QtDMM with the commandline option --console it will display some debug output. This might (or hight not :) help resolve problems.
It was written for Metex (and compatible like VOLTCRAFT) multimeter and is known to work with the following DMM's:
Digitech QM1350 ELV M9803R MASTECH M9803R McVoice M-980T Metex M-3660D Metex M-3830D Metex M-3850D Metex M-3850M Metex ME-11 Metex ME-22 Metex ME-32 Metex ME-42 Metex Universal system 9160 PeakTech 4010 PeakTech 4390 PeakTech 451 Radioshack 22-805 DMM Radioshack RS22-168A Voltcraft M-3650D Voltcraft M-4660 Voltcraft ME-11 Voltcraft ME-22T Voltcraft ME-32 Voltcraft VC 670 Voltcraft VC 820 Voltcraft VC 840 Voltcraft VC 870 Voltcraft VC 920 Voltcraft VC 940
The following models should work but need to be confirmed by a user:
Voltcraft ME-42 Voltcraft M-3860 Voltcraft M-4660A Voltcraft M-4660M Voltcraft MXD-4660A Voltcraft VC 630 Voltcraft VC 650 Voltcraft VC 670
If you manage to get QtDMM working with a digital multimeter different from the mentioned above, or if you can confirm one of the unconfirmed models please give a note. For a new multimeter the best would be sending me a saved configuration file.
QtDMM is kind of "works for me" software. I'm using it, I like it the way it is and it seems to be quite stable. It still needs some improvements but does it's job quite well.
