Compact SLX718 Data Acquisition/Logger, available from Scientific Devices Aust , is combined with Dataforth's miniature SensorLex. 8B isolated analogue signal conditioners create a flexible, high performance data logger/data acquisition system.

Features:

  • Up to eight 8B signal conditioning modules can be installed directly into each SLX718 Data Acquisition/LoggerAny input type 8B signal conditioner can be installed in any of the eight locations
  • 8B signal conditioning modules are fully isolated
  • 14-bit resolution analogue-to-digital conversion
  • Built-in programmable channel scan list
  • Wide sample rate throughput range from milli hertz to over 14,400Hz
  • Built-in remote control jack
  • USB or Ethernet interface options
  • Two removable 16-position screw terminal connectors
  • All metal enclosure
  • Three package options: Benchtop, NEMA & OEM pcb board
  • Powered from any 9-36VDC source
  • Two removable 16-position screw terminal connectors
  • All metal enclosure
  • Three package options: Benchtop, NEMA & OEM pcb board
  • Powered from any 9-36VDC source
  • AC adapter provided with Benchtop enclosure

Benefits:

  • Allows direct measurement of virtually any industrial signal without the need for external amplifiers
  • Allows signal conditioning functions to be mixed in a manner that precisely matches the application
  • Input-to-output isolation is maintained up to 1,000VDC or peak AC; channel-to-channel isolation is 500VDC or peak AC
  • Resolution capable of registering changes as small as one part in 16,384
  • Precisely match signal requirements on a channel-bychannel basis
  • Allows the SLX718 Data Acquisition/Logger to connect to a wide range of both static and dynamic signals
  • Accepts a standard 3.5mm stereo phone plug for access to remote trigger or start/stop events
  • Allows the SLX718 Data Acquisition/Logger to reside externally to the PC for easy access and greater flexibility
  • Allows simple hardware change without disturbing wiring
  • Provides a rugged, CE compliant design for field use and reduces susceptibility to external noise sources
  • Versatility for benign and harsh applications
  • Can be used in automotive and other portable environments where only battery power is available
  • Allows the SLX718 Data Acquisition/Logger to be powered from any AC power source

Additional stand-alone features and benefits

Features:

  • Built-in Secure Digital (SD) card socket
  • SD memory capacities from 16MB to 1GB
  • Circular FIFO or stop-on-full memory configurations
  • Multifunction push-button control
  • Multicolored red, green, orange LED
  • Built-in real-time clock
  • PC-tethered or stand-alone capability

Benefits:

  • Uses the same readily available memory cards used by consumer electronic devices like MP3 players and digital cameras
  • Allows the SLX718 Data Acquisition/Logger to store large amounts of data
  • Record continuously, using a circular buffer approach, or terminate upon full SD memory card
  • Manual start/stop local control of the recording process
  • Visual feedback relating to instrument status: Recording, Standby, Busy, and Error
  • All data stored to the SD memory can be time-and date-stamped
  • Allows data to be acquired directly either to SD memory or to a dedicated PC

WINDAQ recording software: WINDAQ's Waveform Browser playback software supplied with the SLX718 Data Acquisition/Logger allows users to graphically manipulate waveforms in a variety of ways. Compress an entire recording to one screen-width for a bird's eye view, then expand around an area of interest for a closer look. Use the cursor to measure amplitudes and timing with precision or move to any event marker with the click of a mouse button.

The WINDAQ Waveform Browser supplied with the SLX718 Data Acquisition/Logger can export any range of data to the spreadsheet or to any other analysis or presentation package. Users can copy a graphical image displayed by the WINDAQ Waveform Browser and paste it directly into a word processing document. Users can also export any range of waveform graphics to the printer for a hard copy record.

Users need to double-click and enter the channels needed to add to the WINDAQ scan list. Users need to click to select gain, signal averaging, true RMS, frequency and peak or valley detection per channel. Click to define a single to 8-channel display - either triggered sweep (oscilloscope-like) or scrolling (chart recorder-like). Click again to define a sample rate ranging from less than one up to 14,400 per second. With WINDAQ/HS users can also define different sample rates on a per channel basis.

Applications:

The SLX718 Data Acquisition/Logger is ideal for monitoring and recording in maintenance, troubleshooting and quality control, including:

  • Load cells for strain, force, torque
  • Voltage ranging from millivolts to 60V
  • 4-20mA process current loops
  • RTDs and thermocouples
  • In-vehicle automotive testing
  • New product qualification testing
  • Timing and amplitude measurements
