PC-based data-acquisition simplifies operation
31 July 2008
Yokogawa’s SL1000 is a PC-based dataacquisition unit designed to provide high-speed data logging and fast data transfer in electromechanical and power measurement applications. Featuring 100 MS/s sampling on 16 channels and isolated inputs for high-voltage measurements, the SL1000 is also equipped as standard with intuitive, easy-to-use logging and control software for quick start and set-up.
The ability of the SL1000 to deliver independent, isolated-channel hardware at 100 MS/s per channel rates, with no compromise in bit resolution, memory depth, or streaming performance, makes it superior to high-speed digitisers that lack the isolation, attenuation, or bit resolution necessary for power electronics testing. It also offers benefits over PC-based platforms with fast streaming throughput, which sacrifice noise immunity, signal conditioning and hardware integrity.
In addition to its high-speed acquisition, the SL1000 will transfer data to a PC or record to its internal hard drive at rates up to 1.6 MS/s (3.2 Mbyte/s). Data transfer is via USB 2.0 or 1000Base-T Gigabit Ethernet. A stand-alone mode also allows data logging without a PC.
Eight module slots are provided for plug-in modules, of which twelve types are currently available for parameters including voltage, temperature, strain, acceleration and frequency. Each module incorporates its own analogue/digital converter, and the instrument incorporates plug and play automatic recognition of units and modules.
The SL1000 is quick and easy to use, with standard acquisition software including a set-up wizard providing intuitive operation.
