Data acquisition and control come closer with DEWESoft’s R8RT

DEWESoft brings the worlds of data acquisition and control even closer
together by creating a brand new version of the R8 called R8RT, where RT stands
for Real-Time.

By including an additional EtherCAT slave port on the backplane of the
new R8RT, DEWESoft allows users to access real time data directly from the data
acquisition system via the EtherCAT slaves, completely bypassing the computer.

Conventionally, bringing data from analogue sensors to the test bench
controllers would require an additional control system. With the R8RT, this is
done faster, cheaper and more accurately by feeding the data in real-time over
EtherCAT to the controller.

The R8RT requires fewer cables. The EtherCAT interface eliminates the
need for analogue input stage on a third party controller. Being an all-in-one
instrument for in-vehicle test bench use, the R8RT is very cost effective. This
easily configurable single cable from DAQ to controller will save time and
reduce any potential for human error.

The R8RT will improve signal quality with perfectly conditioned signals
transmitted to the test bench controller over EtherCAT instead of analogue.
Test bench control data is transferred over EtherCAT to the controller and can
be recorded and analysed in DEWESoft Software.
