LAN-XI - Data Acquisition System

LAN-XI - Data Acquisition System

LAN-XI is a modular data acquisition system and analyzer platform providing you with a flexible front end capable of delivering over 1000 channels in a portable DAQ system. Both LAN-XI and LAN-XI Light are designed to deliver unrivalled dynamic input range for capturing sound and vibration data in a wide range of demanding measurement applications.

LAN-XI - MODULAR DAQ SYSTEM

Our LAN-XI data acquisition system is a versatile family of DAQ modules, hardware, and equipment designed for flexibility, robustness, and ease of use.

  • Open Application Protocol Interface (API)
    Install LAN-XI Open API on any LAN-XI module via a single licence. LAN-XI Open API is a lightweight, platform-independent interface for programming LAN-XI data acquisition hardware from your own (or third party) software.  The LAN-XI Open API interface is a wire-protocol based on REST and JSON technologies.
  • Flexible channel configurations
    LAN-XI modules can function individually, and can use battery power to create small, rugged, low channel-count systems. The various input and output modules can be assembled in frames of 5 or 11 modules, which can also contain battery modules for power. Frames can be quickly collected together into highly stable systems with a channel count of 1000+.
  • Distributed systems
    The individual modules in a system can be distributed close to the test object to keep transducer cables short thus avoiding noise and a mass of tangled cables. Connected by LAN cables that also supply power over Ethernet (PoE), the modules make a distributed system that is ideal for large-scale measurements such as flight noise certification tests, ground vibration tests (GVT), automotive pass-by tests, and ship self-noise monitoring (SNMS).
  • Versatility
    Versatility and flexibility are at the heart of this plug-and-play platform for real-time analysis or data recording. You can easily remove modules to split systems up for individual measurements, or combine the modules and systems from different departments when large tests are needed. You can attach many different types of input panels to connect the transducers of your choice. Because LAN-XI solutions are capable of unlimited bandwidth, should you find your needs change, such as requiring a faster data sampling rate or bridge transducers, you can easily add modules or specialized multichannel connections. 

LAN-XI LIGHT - STAND-ALONE DAQ

LAN-XI Light is a stand-alone data acquisition module for measurement scenarios and applications with up to four channels.  LAN-XI Light can be used together with a battery module to create a portable, remote recorder. 

ADVANTAGES OF BOTH SYSTEMS

  • Extensive automatic checks to detect cabling errors, such as microphone charge injection calibration (CIC)
  • Automatically incorporates data from transducers equipped with transducer electronic data sheet (TEDS) IEEE 1451.4
  • With the Wireless LAN Frame Type 3660-A-20x, you can use a single LAN-XI module to transmit data wirelessly 
  • Around each connector is a circular LED that shows the channel’s use and health at a glance – backed up with an LCD screen
  • Dyn-X technology eliminates the need for input ranging by using dual A/D converters to ensure you get the data the first time – while achieving an effective dynamic range of over 160 dB

Any module in the LAN-XI range can be used as standalone recorder for capturing sound and vibration time data from up to 12 channels (4 channels for LAN-XI Light). The recorder’s bandwidth, channels, signal conditioning, and other modules can be configured via an online platform for easy control, recording and display feedback via a smartphone or pc.
