FD systems are a series of fast (470 Hz / channel) and flexible data acquisition modules to be used in the field and on test benches. 3 different models are available with 5, 10 or 15 universal synchronized inputs (1 ADC per channel).

All necessary configuration and management software (WEB server technology) are embedded into the plug-and-play system and allow remote control of the acquisition through any web browser: Setup, start, result display, monitoring and data exportation. FD memory capacity (internal and external via USB drive or SD card), allows several months of data to be recorded.

FD modules perform measurement, monitoring and recording of analogue and digital signals coming from sensors of physical or electrical values. These signals can be:

  • Voltage: Standard 0-100 V
  • Current: 0-20 and 4-20 mA with external shunts
  • Thermocouples: Type K/T/J/N/E/R/S/B… with or without cold junction compensation
  • Resistance: 0-3000 Ω and 0-200 kΩ
  • RTD: Temperature sensors (Pt100 / 500 / 1000…) in 2, 3 or 4 wires
  • Frequency: up to 10 kHz measuring frequency and counting

Fast and still accurate, FD 5 / 10 / 15 modules perform acquisition from every input simultaneously up to 470 samples / s / channel. 3 scanning speeds are avalaible, matching 3 different levels of accuracy. Measurement can be performed with different frequencies, resolutions, trigger conditions and types of inputs, making FDs perfect for measurement and control of fast phenomenon.

Channels being synchronized, the scanning speed does not depend on the number of channels scanned and recorded. The instruments are freed from multiplexer constraints: regardless of the number of channels acquired, the speed will remain optimum. Two additional slave modules can be connected to the main module to extend the number of inputs available and make a network.

Accurate monitoring and flexibility are ensured with:

  • Up to four limits per channel
  • Unlimited number of calculation channels
  • 2 analogue 0-10 V outputs
  • 2 output relays
  • 5 TTL inputs/outputs
  • 1 24 VDC output (to supply up to five 4-20 mA sensors)
  • Ethernet TCP/IP, USB, WIFI external access point in option

Accuracy is given for reference @ 0°C.

When using the internal reference junction (except couple B), add an additional uncertainty at 0°C of ±0.5 °C in high or standard accuracy and ±0.8°C in low accuracy.
Temperature coefficient: < 5% of accuracy /°C
It is possible (thermocouple B excepted) to choose by programming the cold junction localization:
- External at 0°C
- Internal (temperature compensation of instrument’s terminals)
- Manually entered
- External (measurement at an input channel)

Further features

Scanning rateFD modules offer 3 scanning frequencies, in direct connection with accuracy levels.
The input channels are synchronized, making the scanning rate totally independent of the number of channels under acquisition.

Accuracy level Scanning rateScanning periodNumber of samples / s / channel
High4 Hz240 ms4 samples / s / ch
Standard123 Hz8.13 ms123 samples / s / ch
Low470 Hz2.13 ms470 samples / s / ch
Calculation channelsThe embedded software is able to perform data calculations and store calculation results.
Calculations can come from input channel values or conditional calculations (Data processing, statistics, conditioning, Boolean calculations).
Calculation channels can be used to condition outputs (relays, analogue outputs).
AlarmsEvery channel can be configured with 4 alarms levels for monitoring purposes. Alarms events are stored in a dedicated file (alarm file). Only allowed users can access to the file.
LinearizationEvery channel can be scaled for sensor correction or application of a special scale for 4-20 mA or 0-10 V sensors.
