Em­bed­ded server op­tion al­lows dig­i­tiz­ers to run re­motely

Power Watch India - - EQUIPMENT WATCH -

The ac­qui­si­tion and anal­y­sis of elec­tronic sig­nals in re­mote lo­ca­tions has be­come easy thanks to the re­lease of a new op­tion for Spec­trum’s Eth­er­net based dig­i­tizer prod­ucts. The Em­bed­ded Server op­tion can be or­dered with any of the com­pa­nies dig­i­tiz­erNETBOX se­ries of LXI in­stru­ments. It ef­fec­tively turns them into PC-based data ac­qui­si­tion units that can op­er­ate in­de­pen­dently or, when con­nected to a LAN, as parts of a larger sys­tem.

The dig­i­tiz­erNETBOX fam­ily, with more than 30 dif­fer­ent mod­els, of­fers the widest choice of LXI based data ac­qui­si­tion ca­pa­bil­i­ties. Units are avail­able with sam­pling rates from 200 KS/s up to 5 GS/s, res­o­lu­tions of 8, 14 and 16 bit, band­widths up to 1.5 GHz and from 2 to 16 fully syn­chro­nous chan­nels. The units are nor­mally con­trolled via Eth­er­net, how­ever, in­stalling the Em­bed­ded Server op­tion al­lows fully in­de­pen­dent op­er­a­tion. The Em­bed­ded Server op­tion com­bines a pow­er­ful CPU, a freely ac­ces­si­ble SSD, more mem­ory and a re­mote soft­ware de­vel­op­ment ac­cess method us­ing stan­dard Linux re­mote shell. This en­ables an open plat­form where you can run your own soft­ware while at the same time you can still be con­nected via LAN for re­mote ac­cess. For ex­am­ple, with the op­tion in­stalled you could run a pro­gramme to ac­quire and an­a­lyse elec­tronic sig­nals in a fully au­to­mated process. Then, when­ever you de­sire, you can choose to trans­fer just the in­for­ma­tion (wave­form data or cal­cu­lated re­sults) that you need in a client-server based soft­ware process.

This ca­pa­bil­ity makes the dig­i­tiz­erNETBOX ideal for data log­ging and sur­veil­lance ap­pli­ca­tions where you need to mon­i­tor sig­nals over long pe­ri­ods of time. The units can work au­tonomously col­lect­ing and analysing data for hours or even days on end. The re­sults can be stored on the in­ter­nal SSD and then, when­ever needed, the im­por­tant in­for­ma­tion can be ac­cessed via Eth­er­net. The dig­i­tiz­erNETBOX can even be setup to send no­ti­fi­ca­tion emails or alerts over the LAN, or off­load stored data as soon as it’s con­nected again to the net­work.

Founded in 1989 Spec­trum is a pi­o­neer in the de­sign and man­u­fac­ture of PC based test and mea­sure­ment in­stru­men­ta­tion that is used for elec­tronic sig­nal cap­ture, gen­er­a­tion and anal­y­sis. The com­pany spe­cialises in high-speed dig­i­tizer and gen­er­a­tor tech­nol­ogy and has avail­able over 450 mod­u­lar prod­ucts in the most pop­u­lar in­dus­try stan­dards; PCIe, LXI and PXI. The com­pany is head­quar­tered in Grosshans­dorf, Ger­many and sells its prod­ucts world­wide via an ex­ten­sive sales net­work of­fer­ing out­stand­ing sup­port di­rectly from the de­sign en­gi­neers.
