DAS1800 High Speed Modular Data Acquisition System

The DAS1800 High Speed Modular Data Acquisition System from Sefram Instruments and B&K Precision features 10 module inputs and can be configured for a wide variety of applications. Choose from 3 input modules (universal, high impedance, and multiplexed) with 4 or 8 channels each to achieve the optimal channel configuration. Acquire data from any sensor with a voltage or current output (with shunt), or directly measure voltage, resistance, or temperature using thermocouples or resistance temperature detectors (RTDs).

For capturing rapidly changing signals and transients, the DAS1800 can simultaneously measure and record up to 40 channels at 1 MSa/s/ch and stream the data directly to the solid-state drive. For slow changing parameters, the D18-MUX8 multiplexed module provides 8 inputs per module (up to 80 channels per system).

With four configurable sampling rates and advanced triggering options, the DAS1800 can also record trends at low sample rates and transients at higher rates. It also comes with a 2 TB solid-state drive standard, providing the longest recording time of any data acquisition recorder on the market.

Light-weight and portable, the DAS1800 weighing about 6.8 kg with the battery configured base unit is the lightest all-in-one system in its class. Modules are also light-weight, only adding around 0.55 kg each. The DAS1800 features a large 15.6” Full HD touch screen display for easy setup and visualizing real-time or recorded data, and the optional internal battery provides up to 3.5 hours of battery operation (1.5 hours with 10 D18-UNI4 modules) for testing in the field.

The highly intuitive user interface of the DAS1800 makes it easy to use with a multitude of time saving features, such as one finger scrolling, pinch and zoom, and a built-in sensor library.

The DAS1800 also provides several options for visualizing your measurement data. View measurements as real-time waveforms and numeric values on customizable dashboards. For viewing data on a PC, download the free DASpro software. For remote control, the
DAS1800 supports web server and VNC connections.
