Compact and rugged Data Acquisition System.
Gould Nicolet Technologies a leader in data acquisition,
introduces the Compact Data Acquisition (C-DAQ) System.
C-DAQ provides synchronised CAN bus data frames, up to 96
channels of traditional analogue inputs coupled with GPS position
and time in a ruggedised, low power and portable system. The
CAN bus is used to add an unlimited number of 16 channel external
distributed thermocouple modules to acquire hundreds of
temperature inputs in addition to the analogue inputs and GPS
C-DAQ uses the Compact Flash medium for removable mass
storage, providing hundreds of Megabytes storage in a
36 x 43 x 5 mm. form factor. Compact Flash technology is used
in digital cameras and hence is readily available and inexpensive.
Data stored on the Compact Flash cards can be transferred
to a notebook computer quickly with the PCMCIA adapter.
On board processors provide real-time data reduction including
FFT, Rainflow, time at a level, level crossing and triggered burst
recordings maximising the Compact Flash memory. The C-DAQ
online data reduction, low power consumption and convection
cooling are ideal specifications for unattended testing with
long time duration.
C-DAQ features programmable signal conditioners for strain,
temperature, pressure, voltage ICP accelerometers and digital
signal conditioning modules which can be mixed and matched
depending on the specific testing requirements.
The rugged construction performance up to 100 g coupled with
wireless communications returning the data makes it ideal for
mobile or remote and unfriendly environments.
Gould Nicolet Technologies is a subsidiary of Thermo Instrument
Systems, which develops, manufactures and markets precision
imaging, inspection and test instrumentation using high-speed
data acquisition and digital processing technologies.
