Multi-Channel Data Acquisition System


A powerful new lightweight and compact portable data acquisition system has been introduced by Astro-Med, Inc. Designated the Dash®  MX, the full-featured high speed multi-channel system is designed and engineered for capturing high frequency data and transient signals as well as long term trending.

The standard Dash MX records up to 8 channels of isolated voltage inputs to an internal 320 GByte hard drive at sample rates up to 200 KHz per channel. High frequency data captures can be saved directly to hard drive for review and post analysis. Includes support for IRIG time codes A, B & E.

Equipped with a 12” color display for intuitive touch-screen control as well as real-time data viewing and analysis, the graphical user interface of the Dash MX is optimized for ease of use. Simple menus permit the user to set most parameters using one touch buttons and checkbox controls.

The system is built into a compact (13.25”L x 12”W x 5.3”H), lightweight (20 lbs including input modules), and rugged case for field or lab use. Operating on 100 to 264 VAC, the Dash MX includes an internal rechargeable battery for power backup and up to 30 minutes of operation.

The Dash MX comes equipped with isolated single-ended inputs that accept up to 250 VRMS. The Dash MX-H version is equipped with high voltage modules that can measure up to 1000 VRMS. Other signal input modules include thermocouple, bridge, piezoelectric and universal.

The versatile digital signal processing of the Dash MX provides a wide variety of capabilities, including low-pass, high-pass, band-pass and band-stop filtering. Derived channels (calculated channels based on user defined equations), variable sample rate during capture, and up to four sample rates per capture are some of the new, innovative capabilities of the Dash MX.

Designed for applications ranging from process trending to transient capture to remote troubleshooting, the Dash MX is portable and rugged enough to handle any environment. The unit is ideally suited for applications in the automotive, aerospace, electric utility, telecommunications, pulp and paper, metals manufacturing, steel mills, R&D labs, medical and other industrial, scientific, and educational fields.
