HBM, a manufacturer of data acquisition systems, analysis and calibration software, strain gauges, and transducers and sensors, has added real-time data calculation capabilities to its 1kV card. A new isolated 1kV data acquisition card lets the data recorders perform real time calculations on the fly, while allowing users to view results immediately.
The new card also lets Genesis High Speed recorders calculate more precise results. The 1kV card provides values per half cycle at sampling rates of up to 2 million samples/second at voltages up to plus/minus 1000V. Users can see dynamic data such as currents and voltages produced when an electric motor is accelerated, the company says.
The system's sampling rate can be automatically switched following a trigger event in the real time calculation channels. Maximum sampling rates are then only used for particularly critical measurement events. According to the company, this results in smaller data files.
"Genesis' new 1kV card can provide powerful measurement and processing capabilities to handle demanding applications that call for analysis of millions of data points," said Walt Farchmin, HBM's director of instrumentation sales, North America. "It opens a wide range of exciting applications for our customers, such as supporting real-time RMS calculations, a capability available on no other data recorder in the industry."
