- Spectrum Instrumentation has added twelve new products to its range of data acquisition instruments in LXI format.
- Designed specifically for applications requiring the acquisition, recording and analysis of multiple signals, these DN6.59x series models are equipped with 24, 32, 40 or 48 synchronized channels.
- These digitizers, operating a 16-bit ADC, have a maximum sampling rate of 20, 40 and 125 MS/s over bandwidths of 10, 20 and 60 MHz.
Each channel of a NETBOX digitizer has its own Analog/Digital Converter (ADC) as well as its own signal conditioning circuit. ADC conversion circuits share a common clock to ensure synchronization of acquisitions across all channels and zero phase error.
Each channel has its own programmable input amplifier, with ranges from ±200 mV to ±10 V, an input offset for unipolar measurements, a 50 Ohm and 1 MOhm termination and an integrated calibration circuit. Measurements can be made in unipolar and differential modes.
Digital conversion circuits (16-bit ADC) display a signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of up to 81 dB, a spurious free dynamic range (SFDR) of up to 103 dB and a total harmonic distortion (THD) of -86 dB.
Control and access to the data collected by the NETBOX digitizer is achieved by connecting it via a GBit Ethernet link to a host computer or to the company network. The platform complies with the LXI standard (according to Core 2011 specifications) and offers an IVI-compatible interface for the IVI Scope and IVI Digitizer classes. Users can write their own control program using common languages such as C+++, LabVIEW, MATLAB, VB.NET, C#, J#, Delphi, Java and Python. Users can also use SBench 6 Professional, Spectrum’s software.
SBench 6 Professional comes standard with the NETBOX digitizer. It allows users to control all acquisition modes and settings via a software interface. The software is designed to support multi-channel acquisitions and has built-in functions for waveform display, data analysis and reporting.
Spectrum’s LXI digitizers, guaranteed for five years, offer a variety of signal trigger modes, onboard memory capacity and various acquisition modes.
