From the entry-level DAQ to the high-end transient recorder or even a mix, the GEN2tB is a data acquisition system (DAQ) that grows with your needs. It has two slots and, therefore, is very cost effective for small channel counts but still offers high-end features. Due to its size, it is perfect for portable or even mobile use, while it can also be mounted on a rack for an end-of-line test bench. The GEN2tB DAQ system can be expanded to up to 12 voltage (or current) channels, 16 high-speed sensor channels, like strain gauges or accelerometers, or up to 24 channels, using fiber optical digitizers or any mix of these.
In applications, where lots of channels should be distributed around a large structure or over a test area, the GEN2tB is the perfect match, due to its optical Master/Slave connection that is immune to electrical noise. The DAQ system includes free Perception standard software, which can be installed on as many PCs as needed to control the system and review acquired data.
With the selection of the right input card, the GEN2tB DAQ can be used for versatile applications:
- Using the basic input cards the GEN2tB can be used to record voltages, or vibrations using IEPE transducers, with up to 16 channels simultaneously at up to 2 MS/s.
- Using the unique real-time math enabled 1 kV input cards turns GEN2tB into a cost effective, powerful 12 channel power analyzer with realtime power computation and harmonic analysis.
- With the universal input card GEN2tB can be used in material testing with physical sensors like strain gauges, IEPE sensors or thermocouples using up to 500 kS/s sample rate.
- The 250 MS/s input cards allow utilization for ultra-fast voltage or strain gauge measurements like “Split-Hopkinson bar” or using the fiber optic digitizers in a real high voltage/high power environment.
