GE Fanuc Embedded Systems introduces the DaqScribe DSC-2200 series of signal-conditioning systems and the DSC-2200.Net network-centric data-acquisition systems. The DSC-2200 system series supports up to 32 channels of signal conditioning, each of which is fully programmable and can be configured with its own 'personality module', per chassis.

'Personality modules' include the DSC-2210 module for programmable amplification and filtering, the DSC-2220 module for strain gauge conditioning and the DSC-2240 for ICP conditioning. Multiple user programmable gain (from 0.1. to 1,000) and filter settings (4-pole Bessel, Butterworth or Chebychev with three low-pass selections in addition to a wideband option) per channel can be selected. Analog bandwidth up to 1MHz per channel is supported, and Ethernet connectivity is achieved via GUI-based software.

The DSC-2200.Net is designed to support low- to medium-speed network-centric applications via the addition of a 16bit, 1MHz ADC with an Ethernet controller to the DSC-2200. LXI-compliant, the DSC-2200.Net system supports between 16 and 256 (in increments of 16) channels of analog input through a single master unit and multiple units can be synchronized for higher channel counts. It provides user-programmable sampling up to 1MHz at 16bit resolution. The system is provided with a DSS160 software suite to enable turnkey operation, supporting real-time tabular and graphical displays.

The user has full control of the DSC2200.Net configuration over the network. Sampling rate is provided by an internal programmable clock which can also be used as an output to synchronize external equipment or other units. Onboard memory provides data buffering to manage network traffic variations while configured to minimize data latency.

The products are now available. Pricing for the DSC-2200 system starts at $9,995 while that of DSC-2200.Net system begins at $2,500.
