Applications involving vibration, acoustics, and other dynamic signals have unique and demanding data acquisition requirements.
ICON Technologies uses state-of-the-art Dynamic Signal Analysis (DSA) hardware from National Instruments for these types of applications.
High Performance DSA
For the highest performance, ICON Technologies recommends the PXI platform, and National Instruments PXI-44xx Series DSA plug-in cards. These cards feature:
- Up to 16 inputs and 2 outputs per card;
- 24-bit delta-sigma ADCs and DACs;
- Up to 118 dB dynamic range;
- Precision acquisition rates to 204.8 kSa/s;
- Built-in software configurable anti-aliasing and anti-imaging filters;
- Built in signal conditioning for IEPE accelerometers.
Choose the PXI embedded real-time PAC platform for added reliability in mission critical applications.
For portable or distributed DSA applications ICON Technologies recommends the National Instruments NI-9234 or NI-9233 C-Series modules.
Up to eight of these 4-channel modules can be mounted in a portable CompactDAQ chassis. Alternatively, individual modules can be connected directly to any hard-wired Ethernet or Wi-Fi network to build a cost effective distributed system.
For high performance DSA in harsh industrial environments, ICON Technologies recommends the National Instruments CompactRIO PAC platform, and NI-9233 or NI-9234 modules C-Series modules.
Up to eight of these modules can be mounted in a single CompactRIO chassis.
