August 7, 2014 - Data Translation announced the DT9857 high channel count USB module for noise and vibration measurement. The highly accurate front end design of the DT9857 allows simultaneous measurement of sixteen 24-bit IEPE sensor inputs at a sampling rate of 105.6kS/s. This module is ideal for precision measurements with microphones, accelerometers, and other transducers that have a large dynamic range. Common applications include audio, acoustic, and vibration testing. In addition to 16 analog input channels, the module features a 32-bit tachometer, 3 counters, and 8 digital inputs all synchronous in the analog input data stream. Two 32-bit stimulus outputs and 8 digital outputs are all synchronous in the analog output stream. The module allows both hardware and software triggers, and pre and post-trigger sampling. Up to 4 modules can be triggered simultaneously for perfectly synchronized measurements of up to 64 IEPE sensor inputs. Key Features of the DT9857 include:
- 16 Simultaneous 24-bit Delta-Sigma analog inputs for high resolution measurements
- IEPE inputs, including use of a 4mA source with 20V compliance assuring greater accuracy
- Up to 105.6 kHz sampling rate per channel on all channels
- Two 32-bit high accuracy stimulus outputs, plus a 32-bit tachometer, 1 general-purpose counter/timer, 2 measure counters, 8 digital inputs, and 8 digital outputs
- All data streams matched in time to achieve synchronous results
