Smart A/D Data Acquisition Cards.
Audon Electronics is now offering the unique Smart A/D
range of data acquisition boards from Sensoray Inc,
capable of accepting virtually any real world sensor directly.
The boards have either 8 or 16 differential input channels, each channel
being software programmable for sensor type, gain, low-pass filtering,
and scan rate. The Smart A/D range feature auto-calibration which
eliminates trimpots, low power consumption, and they support
thermocouples, RTD's, strain gauges, voltage , 4-20mA, thermistors,
Each channel is amplified, digitized, filtered, converted to engineering
units, and stored in on-board memory. The on-board 16-bit A-D converter
is an integrating type, optimised to reduce mains borne interference.
The Smart A/D range is available in ISA, PCI, compact PCI, PC104
and Ethernet formats at prices similar to boards with far less features.
Each board is supplied with a software development kit and and a DLL
for Windows 95/98/NT/2000. A ready-to-go data acquisition program,
QuickSense, is available as an option which can support up to eight
boards giving a total channel count of 256 channels.
Audon Electronics can also supply full data logger systems comprising
a PC, Smart A/D hardware, QuickSense software and screw termination,
fully tested and configured ready to use out of the box.
