LAN-XI data acquisition hardware
Our modular analyzer platform gives you a flexible front end for 1000+ channels and portable systems alike – with an unrivalled dynamic input range.
LAN-XI modules can function individually, and can use battery power to create small, rugged, low channel count systems of up to 12 channels. You can attach many different types of front input panels to connect the transducers of your choice. Around each connector is a circular LED that shows the channel’s use and health at a glance – backed up with an LCD screen. A key feature is the Dyn-X technology, which avoids 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.
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+.
Equally, the individual modules in a system can be distributed around large test objects, to keep transducer cables short and thus avoid noise and cable spaghetti. Connected by a single cable that also supplies 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.
MORE ABOUT LAN-XI
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. Should you find your needs change, such as requiring a faster data sampling rate or bridge transducers, it is very simple to add new specialized modules. Equally, it is easy to remove a single module or front input connector panel in the event of damage, leaving most of the system intact.
- Sample-synchronous phase alignment between all channels using IEEE 1588v2 precision time protocol (PTP) and GPS time synchronization
- Extensive automatic checks to detect cabling errors, such as microphone charge injection calibration (CIC)
- Unlimited data bandwidth
- Easy multichannel connection with cables for 6 channels, 12 channels and 132 channels, and fast connection options
- 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.
