GAGE BOX™

MODULAR DATA ACQUISITION SYSTEM

The Gage Box remote Data Acquisition System is a shop floor proof, expandable gauging system.

The system is composed of dedicated, stackable modules to manage analog sensors and digital Input/Output signals.

All modules are daisy-chained together and exchange measurement data, programming data and I/O signals with the E9066T™ Industrial PC through an USB or a simple RS232 serial link. Any commercial PC can also be used.

The system allows direct interfacing and data collection from TESTAR probes or measuring cells, and from a wide variety of third party sensors.

All data acquisition functions (sampling, signal conditioning, A/D conversion) are performed locally (freeing the computer from any overhead or operating system latency), and then conveniently transferred to the system's companion Industrial PC, the E9066T™, or to any PC-compatible data collector, via USB or a standard RS232 port.

SYSTEM COMPOSITION


  • Main Processor Module, including basic Digital I/O for simple application needs (e.g. footswitch, cycle commands, resume lamp column)
  • Data Acquisition Modules for full-bridge (LVDT), half-bridge (HBT), Strain Gauge sensors or DC signals
  • Digital I/O Modules for cycle commands, BCD output for machine tool compensation or dedicated I/O commands
  • Maximum distance between Processor and PC: 10 meters (RS232); 25 meters (USB/high speed serial)
