ADLINK Announces PXIe-9529, Newest High-Density Dynamic Signal Acquisition Module for Sound and Vibration Testing
Supporting multi-module synchronization, the PXIe-9529 is ideal for high channel count applications
ADLINK Technology, Inc., a leading provider of embedded computing products for test & measurement, has announced the release of its new PXI Express dynamic signal acquisition module, the PXIe-9529, featuring up to eight 24-bit analog input channels simultaneously sampling at 192 kS/s and a 108 dB dynamic range to provide ample power for high density, high channel count signal measurement. The PXIe-9529 features a vibration-optimized lower AC cutoff frequency of 0.3 Hz, and all input channels incorporate 4 mA bias current for integrated electronic piezoelectric (IEPE) signal conditioning for accelerometers and microphones, positioning the module for machine condition monitoring; noise, vibration and harshness (NVH); and phased array data acquisition applications.
“The increasing implementation of modular instrumentation in sound and vibration testing provides benefits like enhanced accuracy and expandability,” said Catherine Wu, senior product director of ADLINK's Measurement and Automation Product Segment. “Our PXIe-9529’s 8-channel design provides easy expansion up to 136 channels in a single 18-slot PXI Express chassis while still maintaining tight timing and synchronization between channels, presenting a cost-optimized solution for high channel count applications like phased array data acquisition.”
When performing high channel count data acquisition, the PXIe-9529’s built-in phase-locked loop (PLL) allows multiple modules to lock to an external reference-timing signal, such as PXI_CLK10 or PXIe_CLK100 from the PXI chassis backplane, such that each module can perform measurements simultaneously. In addition, the PXI star trigger ensures synchronization between modules with less than 1 ns of skew, allowing 0.01 deg phase system mismatch for a 1 kHz signal between any two channels across devices, with the subsequent variety of implementation enabling simultaneous precision multi-channel sampling.
Flexible Operating Options
The PXIe-9529 provides flexible input ranges up to ±10V or ±1V, software-selectable AC or DC coupling, and both differential and pseudo-differential input configuration, with up to ± 42.4V over-voltage protection for positive and negative inputs in both configurations.
The PXIe-9529 supports Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows XP operating systems, and is fully compatible with third-party software such as LabVIEW™, MATLAB®, and Visual Studio.NET®. In addition, ADLINK's easy-to-use DSA (Dynamic Signal Assistant) Utility is included at no extra charge, allowing system integrator validation and reducing overall design cycle time with no programming required.
The ADLINK 3U 18-slot PXES-2780 PXI Express chassis seamlessly integrates with the PXIe-9529.
