Kistler Intros Force Data Acquisition System
Force data acquisition system.
Amherst, NY — Kistler Instrument Corp. has introduced its Type 5697-DAQ, a powerful piezoelectric force measurement data acquisition system controlled by the company's own proprietary DynoWare software. The system is designed to capture and analyze data in applications such as cutting forces, general R&D and test laboratory environments in which single or multi-component force sensors and dynamometers are in use.

With basic components that include a compact connection box and the company's accompanying Type 2825A DynoWare software, the new data acquisition system incorporates a 16-bit analog-to-digital converter and a trigger function. It can acquire and evaluate up to 28 channels at a high sampling frequency rate (125kS/s per channel with eight channels) with excellent resolution. Units are designed for seamless interface and control of up to two multi-channel charge amplifiers or measurement chains and associated signal conditioning. The system 5697-DAQ is reportedly easy to install using any standard USB 2.0 port, making it independent of PCI and PCMCIA interfaces, and can be connected to a PC, with charge amplifier or signal conditioner remotely controlled with an RS-232C cable. The connection box contains the HASP key (dongle), runtime license and software.

Measurements can be started remotely through the D-sub connector that is incorporated into the acquisition box, with power supplied through a robust Binder connector.

The accompanying Type 2825A DynoWare software captures the signals from piezoelectric force sensors and dynamometers, converts them into readable information and outputs the results into a presentable format. It is compatible with Windows® Vista and Windows 7 operating systems and includes several different functions for online visualization, signal evaluation and calculation, as well as individual documentation and saving of configuration and measurement data.
