Astro-Med DASH-18

18 Channel Data Acquisition Recorder

Product Overview

The DASH-18 provides 18 universal inputs for voltage, thermocouple and bridge signals. Its real-time waveform display, internal hard drive for capturing data, integral PC connectivity and optional chart recorder, give you data in virtually any format desired. With audio and video snapshot recording - synchronized to waveform data - the Dash 18 allows users to capture all aspects of your test. The Dash-18 captures 18 channels of data continuously to a dedicated hard drive at a sample rate of 100 kHz per channel. For long-term trend recording, the Dash-18 allows users to set the sample rate as low as one sample per minute for days, weeks or even months of recording. The Dash-18 has three different data acquisition modes: real-time recording mode to display your waveforms while capturing to the hard drive, scope mode for high-speed signals requiring greater timebase resolution, and acquire/review mode is ideal for applications where immediate access to captured data is important. Scope mode gives you a detailed, real-time view of high frequency signals while capturing data to the hard drive in the background. Traditional scope controls give users a way to look at their high-speed data. Acquire/review mode allows you to look back at previously captured data without interrupting real-time recording. The Dash-18 also provides users the ability to capture audio and video snapshots along with waveform data. The audio, video and waveform data is synchronized, allowing a more detailed analysis of what events actually took place during a test. The universal inputs of the Dash-18 let users connect almost any signal without using external signal conditioning. With high voltage, low voltage, temperature, DC Bridge and frequency inputs, most signals can connect directly to the Dash-18. Channel-to-channel isolation means users don't have to worry about cross-talk and signal interference.
