LDS: Integrated DAQ & Transient Recorder
integrated data and transient recorder. .
Middleton, WI — LDS Test and Measurement has launched its latest integrated Data Acquisition System and transient recorder under the Nicolet brand, the Genesis 5i. This builds on the portability of the Dimension 4i and the multi-channel and transient recording of the Genesis DAQ system to break new ground, offering data acquisition using a range of configurable input modules.

Genesis 5i supports a maximum of up to 40 channels, and can handle a sustained streaming rate of 50MB/s to its hard disks. It offers a maximum sample rate in transient mode of 100MS/s per channel, with a huge 1.6GB memory for each channel.

Physical signal conditioners for voltage, strain, accelerometers or other sensors are available as well as high-speed differential and fiber optic isolated input modules. The integrated dual core PC runs Microsoft Windows Vista® 64bit Ultimate, providing enough processing power for the most demanding analysis.

Perception 64bit Enterprise Edition Data Acquisition software is the company's all-in-one solution, offering exceptional hardware control, acquisition and time and frequency domain analysis all the way through to report generation. The integration between Perception and Microsoft Office® allows test results in many formats to be easily transferred to Excel® or Word® manually or as a batch process.

The new instrument's robust housing has been subjected to tough shock and vibration testing to ensure the DAQ and transient recording instrument could readily handle field use. The design also includes special features such as rubberized corner mounts, shock absorbing fixtures for hard disks, and a protective front cover to ensure proper operation for years. For the very harshest use, all hard drives can be replaced with solid-state hard disks to offer the highest standards of field data integrity.

The instrument is equipped with full networking capability, WLAN and a wired Gigabit Ethernet. Data can also be backed up using front panel USB ports, built in DVD-RW, or the optional, removable hard drive. The removable hard drive allows for mission-critical data, or even the complete system software, to be stored in a secure location within seconds.
