Analog Data Capture Module
TDL Technology announced the release of their Model ADC-405, a new analog data capture module designed for field data collection using a laptop or notebook host computer. It features a 12-bit output word at a maximum sampling rate of 69 kHz. The built-in rechargeable batteries provide power line independence during operation. And the cast aluminum enclosure provides good shielding to enhance unwanted signal rejection in noisy environments. The built-in peak detector and analog meter allows for setting the input voltage level for full dynamic range without clipping. The control software first captures the data to a memory buffer. At the end of the capture period, the data is written to a disk file. An external trigger can be used to start the capture.
