DSC-2300 series signal conditioning system from GE Faunc intelligent platforms represented by Metromatics is designed to offer industry-leading performance and cost effectiveness in a compact form. The DSC-2300 series signal conditioning system has the following features:
- 3U 16-slot rack-mountable chassis
- Fully programmable/configurable with Ethernet controller
- Wide range of plug-in signal conditioning modules for static strain, dynamic strain, charge, IPC and voltage inputs
- High signal bandwidths to 150KHz
- Dual buffered analogue outputs for every channel input
The DSC-2300 series high performance signal conditioning system was developed to satisfy the growing customer requirement for powerful, module signal conditioning solutions that are programmable and network-centric. The DSC-2300 is housed in a compact 3U, 16 slot rack-mountable chassis. With a smart Ethernet-based controller to allow for integration within any data acquisition environment, the programmable DSC-2300 series is designed for a broad range of testing applications including jet and rocket engine testing, vibration testing, acoustic chamber monitoring, wind tunnel testing and other challenging applications requiring high performance.
Test and measurement applications require high bandwidth and accuracy with network programmability for their complex tests. The flagship DSC-2300 is a rack-mount signal conditioning system that offers compact size and a multitude of signal conditioning options. The high signal channel count coupled with the flexibility of multiple sensor types per channel make it ideal for cost sensitive applications that require high performance.
The DSC-2300 series achieves its significant performance benefits through its ability to process the input from a wide range of sensors, supporting up to 32 sensor channels (2 Channels per slot). Its high channel density keeps its cost per channel low, while its 3U form factor makes it compact and capable of being deployed in space-constrained environments. Ease of use is facilitated by many built-in features such as network programmability, auto zero and balance, calibration, a plug-in mezzanine filter board for each channel and easy customization using the supplied programmers interface.
Features common to all models include two programmable levels of over-range detection; reference bus input (oscillator, DAC, short, open or external input); channel output monitor; and two buffered analogue outputs for every model. Windows-based software includes an API, demo applications and GUI for easy test implementation, GE Fanuc can also provide complete, turnkey solutions.
