Unit Conversion Software for Windows to easily convert between 560 units of measurement. Includes Units for Temperature, Distance, Mass, Area, Volume, Pressure, Velocity, Acceleration, Force, Energy, Power, Fuel Consumption, Flow and more.
Pros: ESBUnitConv Pro is designed for quick conversion of units. The interface is very simple. You have a list of categories, the conversion to be done in what kind of measurement category. These include acceleration, angles, angular velocity, angular acceleration, area to temperature, time, velocity, viscosity and volume. There are 26 such categories in all that gives you the capability to covert 560 odd units. For actual conversion set if scaling is involved. Fill in the actual measurement in the “from” field and get the results in the “To” field. Corresponding to each category a set of units “from” to “to” appear below the fields and one just clicks on the right units from which the measurement is to be converted to the other. There’s a log area below all these display areas to show any messages that appear during the conversion process. The user has a choice to view these logs or turn off the log area. Controls exist to transfer for transferring the current conversion to the log area in the form of a formula X=Y and the complete log of all such conversions becomes a record of the calculations carried out. This obviously can be printed and formatting options are available. Documentation provided is a guide to do this appropriately. The log can also be transferred to the clipboard or stored into a file.
For circle and sphere related calculations corresponding calculator tools are made available. Scaling, Value Swapping, Clipboard Support, integrated help, printing, full customization etc are other features available.
