The Astromed Dash 8u combines a rack of
instrumentation into one portable, rugged unit. The Dash 8u
provides the functionality of a universal signal conditioning
system, a real-time digital signal processing system, a data
acquisition system, a chart recorder, an FFT analyzer and a data
reviewing station. From monitoring temperature, pressure and torque
in a vehicle to monitoring strain and pressure in a Research and
Development application, the Dash 8u can do the job. And because
each channel can be independently configured, the Dash 8u is the
only piece of test equipment you will ever need. Because the Dash
8u can handle all of your input needs with no external signal
conditioning, it is ideally suited for applications where
portability is a must and space is at a premium.
Big Color Monitor
- Universal Inputs
- Direct thermal printer
- 10.4 Inch Color Monitor for real-time viewing and playback
- Internal 4GB hard drive and 100MB Zip drive standard
- Isolated, single-ended Voltage Measurements: Ideal for a wide
variety of voltage measurements, the input is designed for voltages
between 400mV and 40V full scale.
- Differential voltage Measurements: The isolated, differential
input module accepts inputs from 5mV to 500mV full scale.
- Thermocouple Measurements: The Thermocouple Input supports Type
J, K, E and T thermocouples and has a 10Hz bandwidth.
- DC Bridge: perfect for a wide variety of load cells and
pressure transducers, the DC Bridge Input offers an isolated 10V
excitation source at up to 30 mA.
The Dash 8 series recorders feature a built-in, 10.4-inch
color monitor that adds another dimension to chart recording.
Signals may be displayed in real time on the monitor, saving chart
paper during recorder setup. And to make data even easier to
interpret, the Dash 8allows you to make each channel a different
There are two powerful models to choose from. The Dash 8n
offers isolated inputs up to 250 VRMS, build-in offset adjustment
and an almost unlimited number of full scale selections, giving you
the versatility you need for almost any voltage recording. The Dash
8u has flexible universal inputs making your connection even
easier. From single ended and differential voltage to thermocouple
(J, K,E, T) and DC bridge inputs, the Dash 8uallows you to connect
almost any signal without external conditioning. The Dash8u also
supports optional input modules for RTD, isolated high voltage and
frequency to voltage.
With all the powerful data capture and display
features of the Dash 8 series, it s easy to forget about the
integral chart recorder. The high resolution, 8.5 inch chart give
you real-time recording at the push of a button. Chart speeds are
front panel selectable from 1mm per hour to100mm per sec. And
channels can be displayed in any format, from individual to overlap
to completely custom.
With 16-bit A/D converters sampling at 20,000
samples per second for each channel, the Dash 8 series gives you
the frequency response you need to record all your data. Signals up
to 2 kHz may be displayed, printed and stored to memory.
