Pacific Instruments have recently released Model 5810, which is a 16 channel system enclosure for the Pacific Instruments Model 5800 Series Recording Modules. With a considerably lower price than ruggedised enclosures, it makes the 5800 system a competitive model for laboratory transient recorder applications. The 5810 is a 10.5 Inch High Rack mounting enclosure that holds 16 channels in two 8-channel groups each group with its own Ethernet Address. Each group has independently programmable sample rates and control inputs.
Individual channel modules that plug into the 16 channel recorder condition, amplify, filter and digitize and store the transducer signals. Channel modules are available with 14, 16 or 24-bit resolution and sample rates up to 2 Million samples per second. Each channel has two inputs: one for bridges, voltage, RTDs, potentiometers and thermocouples; the other AC coupled with current excitation for transducers with built in electronics.
Other features of the Model 5810 include
Dual inputs, bridge & IEPE
Programmable for ¼, ½ and full bridges
Voltage and Shunt Calibration
One pre-trigger and two post-trigger sample rates
Up to 4 million sample storage per channel, non volatile
Multi enclosure synchronization
Automatic, hands off operation
Ready to run Windows Software
