CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., 10 May 2007. GE Fanuc Embedded Systems in Charlottesville, Va., is offering the DaqScribe DSC-2200 series of signal conditioning systems (related product) and the DSC-2200.Net network-centric data acquisition systems.
Housed in 2U rack mount enclosures, both systems are designed to offer low cost yet high performance with maximum ease of use.
The DSC-2200 system series supports as many as 32 channels of signal conditioning (related application) -- each of which is programmable and can be configured with its own personality module -- per chassis.
Personality modules include the DSC-2210 module for programmable amplification and filtering; the DSC-2220 module for strain gauge conditioning; and the DSC-2240 for ICP conditioning. Several user programmable gain (from 0.1. to 1,000) and filter settings (4-pole Bessel, Butterworth or Chebychev with three low-pass selections in addition to a wideband option) per channel can be selected. Analog bandwidth as high as 1 MHz per channel is supported, and Ethernet connectivity is achieved via GUI-based software.
LXI-compliant, and as easy to install as a network printer, the DSC-2200.Net system supports between 16 and 256 (in increments of 16) channels of analog input through a single master unit, and Several units can be synchronized for higher channel counts. It provides user-programmable sampling as high as 1 MHz at 16-bit resolution.
The DSC-2200.Net is provided with the powerful, versatile DSS160 software suite to enable turnkey operation, supporting real-time tabular and graphical displays.
The user controls the DSC2200.Net configuration over the network. Sampling rate is provided by an internal programmable clock which can also be used as an output to synchronize external equipment or other units. Onboard memory provides data buffering to manage network traffic variations while configured to minimize data latency.
For maximum flexibility, the DSC-2200.Net supports the same 'personality modules' as the DSC-2200, and provides digitized data over Ethernet and buffered analog output. It is planned that a complete line of network-centric products will be developed to support a wide variety of sensor inputs such as bridge, ICP, charge amplifiers, thermocouples, RTD and discrete I/O.
