8B isoLynx SLX300 data acquisitionThe 8B isoLynx SLX300 data acquisition system builds on the reliability and performance of the SCM5B isoLynx SLX200 and miniature-sized SensorLex 8B isolated signal conditioning modules to provide a compact, low-cost solution for wide ranging rugged industrial applications. ReDAQ Shape – Dataforth’s out-of-the-box DAQ software designed specifically for the 8B isoLynx SLX300 system – provides a development tool to create, save, and open graphical user interface projects as well as to test, process, and analyze acquired data.
The SLX300’s modular design can be configured with up to 12 channels of isolated analog input, four channels of isolated analog output, and eight channels of isolated digital I/O using Dataforth’s SensorLex 8B analog and SCMD digital modules. The pluggable modules provide maximum flexibility of channel configuration as selections include 70 analog and 14 digital I/O models. Multiple powerful, high-speed microcontrollers and high performance data converters at the heart of the SLX300 system enable simultaneous analog and digital I/O at sustained rates of up to 3.0kS/s (100kS/s burst). To ensure signal integrity, all I/O is input-to-output and channel-to-channel isolated.
Three packaging formats are offered to fit a wide range of industrial applications. Panel mount with standoffs has the smallest overall dimensions and can be mounted in a 19” rack; DIN mount allows rugged installation on standard 35mm rails; and for the most demanding applications, the system comes in a low-profile, instrument quality, metal enclosure with 1U height. This last system also offers an SD card for data logging and enhanced communications with USB and Ethernet ports which can be operated simultaneously. The SLX300 uses industry standard Modbus RTU or TCP protocols, thereby enabling communication with a broad range of existing third-party software tools and HMI/SCADA packages. Advanced features include high-speed acquisition, alarms, counters, and timers.
