The DA100 is a member of the DARWIN acquisition family. It is uniquely suitable for compactly configuring a data acquisition environment using a PC as a human interface.
The DA100 is available in two versions, a stand-alone model that can acquire data from up to 40 channels, and an expandable model with a maximum of 300 channels. Both models transfer your measured variables of temperature, flow rates, strain, etc in realtime to a PC via a general purpose communications interface (RS-232-C, RS-422A/RS-485, GP-IB, or Ethernet).
The DA100 units are small and light. A DA100 configuration can additionally greatly reduce the amount of wiring needed, particularly for remote measurements reducing costs.
The DA100 can be flexibly configured and expanded to meet a wide range of needs, from small scale data logging to multi-point data acquisition. The data acquisition hardware accepts a wide variety of inputs including: voltage, temperature (thermocouple, RTD), contact, strain, pulse power monitor and direct current (mA) signals.
The data acquisition components are made to be highly reliable in extreme environmental conditions
A expandable model configuration can provide a scanning speed of 500 ms/300 channels.
The DA100 expandable model consists of the main unit, subunits and input modules. You can easily configure a multi-channel data acquisition environment by connecting the main unit to several subunits using dedicated cables. You can connect the main unit to subunits over a total distance of up to 500 m using a single dedicated cable, thus reducing the amount of wiring required to perform remote measurement.
