Instrumentation

Handheld DAQ instrument from Daytronic Corp. collects, monitors, and displays multiple sensor inputs. Lightweight unit has a color touchscreen and interchangeable memory cards.

MeasuringPAD portable data acquisition instrument from Daytronic Corp . is intended for use in a wide range of manufacturing, laboratory, plant operations, and quality control applications. Configured and operated through an easy-to-use graphical interface, the device provides live readout of up to 16 analog inputs and up to eight logic-level digital inputs. Numerical measurements are monitored for exact conformance to user-entered set points. The color-coded status display lets a user size up the test or process at a glance.
Instrument is suited for troubleshooting, process tuning, fault recording, and trend analysis. Input “pods” allow fast and easy hookup of machine- or process-dedicated sensors. Up to eight internal cross-channel math calculations can also be set up to display and monitor additional process variables such as horsepower, efficiency, and corrected flow.
Unit weighs 4 lb and has a color touchscreen, automated set-up system with self-discoverable pods, and a range of interchangeable memory cards. Multi-channel display options include bar graph, trending up to four time-plotting parameters, and oscilloscope view.
