Courtesy: HBM, Inc.HBM Inc.'s CX23-R data recorder and the EX23-R Ethernet switch make the SomatXR data acquisition system are designed for harsh environments. The CX23-R data recorder and the EX23-R Ethernet switch both have an IP65/IP67 rating, meaning that they are completely dustproof, protected against low-pressure water jets, and can be immersed in water up to 1 m. In addition, they will operate at temperatures as low as -40 C and as high as +80 C. Measurement accuracy is not affected by water, vibration, impact, or electromagnetic fields. 

The CX23-R Data Recorder is the heart of the SomatXR data acquisition system. It synchronizes all connected measurement modules, computes and records values based on measurements, and stores recorded measurement data using smart data compression. It includes three digital inputs and two digital outputs, a GPS interface for connecting a GPS receiver, three CAN interfaces (ISO 11898, CAN 2.0A and 2.0B), two Ethernet ports for connection to other SomatXR modules, and an Ethernet host port for connecting a PC with an up-to-date web browser for system configuration and data analysis.

The EX23-R Ethernet Switch has ten gigabit Ethernet ports for connecting SomatXR measurement modules and other accessories. Five of the ports can supply electrical power to external devices with Power-over-Ethernet (PoE). PoE enables accessories, such as an Ethernet camera, to be supplied with up to 15.4 W of power. The EX23-R also supports precision time protocol version 2 (PTPv2), giving it a time accuracy of less than one microsecond. Ethernet switches cannot guarantee this high level of accuracy, the company said.
