Rugged transient data recorder for in-the-field measurements introduced by Elsys

MONROE, N.Y., 6 March 2013. Elsys Instruments LLC in Monroe, N.Y., is introducing is introducing the TraNET PPC transient data recorder technology in a portable, ruggedized system for in-the-field measurements.

Available with as many as 24 channels and sample rates as fast as 240 megasamples per second, the TraNET PPC enables data acquisition for test & measurement from several points simultaneously.

The system combines Elsys's high-speed, LAN-controlled instruments with a industrial PC for data acquisition in several kinds of harsh and mission critical environments, including power plant maintenance, electric traction engine testing, ballistics, and explosives testing.

The LAN connectivity enables stand-alone operation in remote applications such as structural health verification on bridges and buildings, seismic activity monitoring, or stray voltage detection from defective power lines.

Channel configurations of 4, 8, and 12 are available in addition to the 24, depending on application needs. Each channel provides as much as 128 megabytes of acquisition memory.

Different Elsys PCI and PCI Express-compatible TPCX and TPCE digitizers comprise the heart of the TraNET PPC. The modules offer a typical measurement precision of plus-or-minus 0.03 percent with transfer speeds to 2.5 gigabytes per second on the PCI Express-compatible modules.

These advanced digitizers offer single-ended and differential inputs, large input voltage and offset ranges, advanced trigger capabilities with an external trigger, programmable anti-aliasing filters, ICP input for piezo sensors, and digital inputs.

The TraNET PPC offers several different recording modes. Scope mode, similar to an oscilloscope, enables configuration of acquisition parameters for visualizing and analyzing single-shot events.

Continuous mode acquires and writes data onto the internal hard disk. Block mode divides the available onboard data acquisition memory into absolute or relative time-stamped blocks and is especially useful for capturing signal bursts where only relevant data needs to be recorded. Dead time between blocks is in the range of a few sample intervals.

Event controlled recording (ECR), provides intelligent streaming for troubleshooting and long-term monitoring applications. ECR uses smart trigger logic that allows adjacent channels to overlap. In addition, every channel can acquire waveform data independently on trigger command as well as synchronously with associated channels.
