Yokogawa IS800003 March 2021 - Yokogawa Test & Measurement released the IS8000 integrated measurement software platform for the control of and the collection of data and generation of reports from multiple measuring instruments. The IS8000 software combines the functions of software that had previously been provided for individual measuring instruments and is able to provide total support for all measurement tasks, from the connection of instruments to the creation of reports, thus helping to improve product development efficiency.

As well as enabling the operation of and collection of data from Yokogawa measuring instruments, it also supports connection to devices such as high-speed cameras from other companies. This makes it possible to integrate, synchronize, and time stamp the data collected from multiple devices.

This software can aid in the development of motors, inverters, and other types of equipment by synchronizing the measurement data from power analyzers with the multichannel analog measurement signal data from a high-speed data logger. As a total solution that will help customers develop products more efficiently, this software will be offered together with other Yokogawa products such as power analyzers and the new DL950 ScopeCorder.

Development Background

Yokogawa has developed software for use with individual power analyzers, ScopeCorders, and other such instruments. However, in recent years, our customers’ product development evaluation workflows have grown increasingly complex, leading to situations where different measurement instruments must be used together. Under these circumstances, it can be very difficult and time consuming to use separate software tools to collect and compare data from these measuring instruments.

To address this issue, Yokogawa has developed the IS8000 software. This improves efficiency by providing a single interface for the control and synchronization of measurements performed by multiple devices. This also provides a new environment for the integrated handling of fundamentally different types of data (electrical signals, images, etc.), something that previously had been difficult to accomplish.


  • Use with the DL950 ScopeCorder to facilitate and enhance data analysis
  • Improved visualization of correlated data through integration of measuring instruments
  • Supports the whole workflow from measurement to analysis and report output
  • Flexibility in software licensing and registration

To activate all the functions of this software, customers can either purchase a perpetual license or pay an annual subscription, giving customers a greater range of choices. Under the terms of the licensing agreement, this product can be used on up to two PCs. In cases such as when users need to replace a PC, users can go online to modify their subscriptions.


  • Electrical power usage efficiency testing in the product design phase and final testing phase
  • Evaluation of in-vehicle LAN standard compliant bus signals and analog signals as well as synchronized measurement in car electronics
  • Development and debugging of embedded device firmware
  • Synchronized measurement of analog electrical signals from sensors or other devices and video from high-speed cameras
  • Synchronized measurement and evaluation of high-speed signals such as those used in communications and relatively steady mechatronic system signals
