Astro-Med Dash16U Data Acquisition Recorder, 16 Universal Input Channels, 200 kHz Per Channel. 10.4" Display for Real-time Signals and Post-capture Data Review, 20 kHz Frequency Response.
Dash 16u Sixteen Channel Data Acquisition Recorder
If you are looking for a recording system that combines the features of a high speed oscilloscope, a real-time chart recorder and a data acquisition system, look no further than the Dash 16u. With sixteen channels of isolated inputs sampled at 200 kHz per channel, the Dash 16u can handle all of your recording needs. View data on a color display, print data in a strip chart format, capture data to memory or import data to a PC – The Dash 16u is the tool for you. And best of all, everything is contained in a compact, rugged case that will go anywhere with you.
The Dash 16u features 16 channels of universal signal conditioning, real-time data display, real-time chart recording and built-in data acquisition - all in one compact, rugged case.
With a built-in high resolution, real-time chart, the Dash 16u gives you immediate access your data in the most convenient format available - paper!
Each channel in the Dash 16u has a separate A/D converter sampling at 200 kHz. Imagine – you’ll never have to worry about missing important data again!
The Dash 16u features a 10.4-inch color display for realtime and post capture viewing of waveform data. The display can be run in place or in parallel with the chart, saving paper during setup and recording.
The Dash 16u has 16 Megabytes of memory for capturing important data. Sample rates are adjustable from 0.2 to 200,000 samples per second, ideal for transient capture as well as long-term trending.
The Dash 16u inputs are truly universal, letting you connect almost any signal – voltage to temperature to pressure and strain – without external conditioning. Each channel is electrically isolated, eliminating crosstalk.
No recorder is complete these days unless it connects to your PC. With AstroSET - our off-line setup package, and AstroVIEW - our data upload and review package - the Dash 16u is PC ready.
