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 […]

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. […]

Know your power supply jargon: watts vs. volt-amperes

Written on December 5, 2016 at 10:56 am, by

To select the right power source for your applications, one of the first things that you must do is to figure out how much output power you need. For a DC supply, this is relatively straightforward. You first determine the highest output voltage you’ll need and then the highest output current that you’ll need. The […]

Five mistakes engineers make when choosing power supplies

Written on October 27, 2016 at 6:38 am, by

The power supply may be one of the least-considered components of an electronic system. After all, how hard can it be to find the right power source for your system? You figure out how much current you need at the voltage your system will operate at, find a model that can supply that voltage and […]
