Test sourcing specialist Livingston is now stocking Sefram’s latest paperless data recorder. The DAS1600 has a 100MHz bandwidth and offers 18 channel operation as standard, with provision for determining voltage, strain, pressure, temperature and a broad variety of other parameters through utilisation of the series of accompanying measurement boards available.
There is considerable scope for operational upgrades, so that new application demands can be met as they arise. This is achieved through employment of an extension chassis, which allows 3 extra slots to be incorporated – resulting in access to 72 analogue channels in total.
A 500GByte hard disk is included, delivering an impressive storage capacity of up to 128Mwords of acquired data. Once the readings have been taken they can be transferred from the recorder to a PC, tablet or other computing platform for further analysis – via its 6 x USB interfaces, the LAN (Ethernet) interface or alternatively through Wi-Fi communication. It has a 15.4-inch, 1280 x 800 pixel resolution, touch-enabled display which provides engineers with a highly intuitive user interface, thereby facilitating the execution of data collection procedures and subsequent manipulation/examination.
The data recorder is supplied with the SeframViewer software for both data transfer and analysis purposes. Virtual Network Computing software can also be sourced, which permits users to remotely control their unit directly from an external computer. Numerous triggering options are offered, as well as a Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) analysis capability. Comprehensive power analysis of single, dual and three phase electrical infrastructure can be undertaken, with frequencies of 50Hz, 60Hz, 400Hz and 1kHz supported. The Sefram DAS1600 is packaged within a compact, streamlined enclosure measuring 298mm x 394mm x 218mm and weighing just 8kg.
