Time Stamping for Multi-channel Data Acquisition Systems

Written on March 26, 2018 at 11:19 am, by

For multi-channel data acquisition systems, getting the correct readings in the correct timed order is crucial. System designers have two options for acquiring data in a deterministic fashion. They can use a real-time operating system (RTOS), that has a known buffer delay/ processing order or acquire data with a time-stamp for every sample and use […]

Analog control for the Sorensen XT and HPD Series power supplies

Written on March 13, 2018 at 7:58 am, by

Today, when we think about controlling the output of a power supply, we usually think about digital control via a USB port or some other network interface. That’s not the only way to control a power supply, though. Analog control is still used in many industrial applications, and it’s also a good choice if you […]

Powering an EX1401 with POE

Written on March 6, 2018 at 12:25 pm, by

Power over Ethernet (POE) is a technology that enables network cables to carry the electrical power required by the end devices to which they are connected. One of the features that makes the EX1401 16-Channel Isolated Thermocouple and Voltage Measurement Instrument so useful is that can derive is power from Ethernet ports that support POE. […]
