For data acquisition applications (DA) requiring high channel counts, NetDAS-32 is a cost-effective solution. Applications include wired seismic arrays in structures, laboratory sensory DA, seismic surveys or other DA where large numbers of analog sensors need digitization with GPS timing and 24-bit resolution. NetDAS offers TCP/IP connectivity via the NetDAS Tools client/server software (remote data collection, triggering, formatting, performance logging, data concentration). For about $9500, you won't find a better value!
A Watchdog Power Supply (WDPS) is useful for systems that run continuously as a WDPS will automatically reboot the system if it stalls, stops or crashes. The WD is "kicked" every few seconds with a CPU generated pulse. If the pulse is missing (CPU has crashed) the power is recycled. A cold reboot is often the most effective way to recover from software bugs, power glitches, USB stack errors or any other problem that causes the program to halt. To use this WDPS just have it supply the 5VDC to your CPU and have the CPU provide a periodic pulse to the WD. Read More…
