Data Translation Announces USB Module for High Channel Count Sound & Vibration Measurement

16 high accuracy IEPE Inputs, 2 stimulus outputs, synchronized with multiple inputs

Marlboro, MA, August 7, 2014---- Data Translation today announced the DT9857 high channel count USB module for noise and vibration measurement. The highly accurate front end design of the DT9857 allows simultaneous measurement of sixteen 24-bit IEPE sensor inputs at a sampling rate of 105.6 kS/s. This module is ideal for precision measurements with microphones, accelerometers, and other transducers that have a large dynamic range. Common applications include audio, acoustic, and vibration testing.

In addition to 16 analog input channels, the module features a 32-bit tachometer, 3 counters, and 8 digital inputs all synchronous in the analog input data stream. Two 32-bit stimulus outputs and 8 digital outputs are all synchronous in the analog output stream. The module allows both hardware and software triggers, and pre and post-trigger sampling. Up to 4 modules can be triggered simultaneously for perfectly synchronized measurements of up to 64 IEPE sensor inputs.

"The DT9857 builds on a series of very successful vibration modules by offering the ability to measure many points on a large structure, such as aircraft wings, large industrial machines, and turbines," states Fred Molinari, President."Additionally, it offers previously unachievable accuracy with a 4mA excitation current source up to 20V compliance, allowing use of a wide variety of accelerometers."

Key Features of the DT9857 include:

  • 16 Simultaneous 24-bit Delta-Sigma analog inputs for high resolution measurements
  • IEPE inputs, including use of a 4mA source with 20V compliance assuring greater accuracy
  • Up to 105.6 kHz sampling rate per channel on all channels
  • Two 32-bit high accuracy stimulus outputs, plus a 32-bit tachometer, 1 general-purpose counter/timer, 2 measure counters, 8 digital inputs, and 8 digital outputs
  • All data streams matched in time to achieve synchronous results

Pricing and Availability

Prices for the DT9857 start at $3,495 US List.

The DT9857 will be shipping in September.
