Large selection of rugged, reliable industrial data acquisition systems with modular, flexible I/O for applications including process control, equipment monitoring, test stands and quality control.
With a selection of models from manufacturers including Brainchild, Delphin, ADwin, dataTaker, and Novus, these industrial data acquisition systems have the ability to scale from just a few channels to hundreds of input channels. Also, the different units can accommodate a wide range of sample rates; from once a second or slower on the low end to sample rates of 100’s of kS/s or faster at the high end.
Most models offer the flexibility to mix and match I/O to meet the specific needs of the application and have an easy connection to a PC via LAN, USB or WiFi. Several have the ability to interface to common industrial communications buses: CAN, Profibus, Fieldbus, and Modbus. They are also available in compact models with DIN rail mounting for easy installation in a control cabinet, test stand, or control room.
When choosing an industrial data acquisition system there are several important questions to answer to help determine what product is best for the application:
How many and what type of inputs are needed?
What sample rate is required to capture the data of interest?
Are any control outputs required?
Is a local display needed?
Does the data need to feed to other equipment or software?
