Durham Instruments is proud to supply innovative devices by HBM Test and Measurement, including the GEN2tB transient recorder and data-acquisition system. This is a distributable, standalone DAQ system that offers high-end features while remaining cost-effective for small channel counts, as it features two slots. Its compact size makes it ideal for portable and mobile use, and users can mount it on a rack for an end-of-line test bench.
Up to 12 voltage channels
The GEN2tB functions as a high-end transient recorder, an entry-level DAQ system, or both, making it a versatile instrument that grows with user needs. It can be expanded to up to a dozen voltage (or current) channels, 16 high-speed sensor channels, or up to 24 channels using fibre optical digitizers or any mix of these.
This device is an ideal selection for applications in which numerous channels need to be distributed around a large structure or over a test area. This is because of the optical Master/Slave connection, which is immune to electrical noise. The GEN2tB comes with free Perception standard software, which users can install on as many PCs as required to control the system and to review acquired information.
By choosing the correct input card, a business can use this transient recorder and DAQ system for several versatile applications:
- Recording voltages or vibrations with IEPE transducers, with as many as 16 channels at the same time at up to two mega-samples per second;
- Using the device as a 12-channel power analyzer, with real-time power computation and harmonic analysis;
- Material testing with strain gauges, IEPE sensors, or thermocouples, with a sample rate of up to 500 kilo-samples per second; and
- Ultra-fast voltage or strain-gauge measurements, like “Split-Hopkinson bar”.
The GEN2tB has a lightweight, rugged construction that enables easy transport with a carrying bag or belt, and the optional SSD drive enables use as a standalone data recorder. Durham Instruments deems the device suitable for use in many industries, including general manufacturing, aerospace, automation, education, the military, mining, power generation, alternative energy, transportation, and research and development.
