A Scanning Calorimeter measures heat flow rates in dependence of temperature or time. Modern DSCs are nowadays always connected with a data acquisition system and a powerful computer (PC). This allows one to present the measured data online on a monitor in form of a curve. Normally the heat flow rate versus the program temperature (or time) is plotted, but it is also possible to calculate other quantities from the originally measured values and draw the respective graphs on the screen as well. Modern computer techniques make it possible to do even complicated evaluations of the just measured values in the background while the measurement runs.
