Data Acquisition and Control System (DAS)
The CELDAS100TM Data Acquisition System is a RS-485 Ethernet-based system operating under QNX, with virtually unlimited expansion capabilities.
Software configurable for a great range of data acquisition and control applications, the CELDAS100TM offers real time monitoring and control along with post-processing or playback of historic data for statistical analysis.
The CELDAS100TM (see diagram) is the result of several years of investment in Research & Development by CEL. It is has been developed by CEL experts in close cooperation with users to meet all needs for present and future generation applications.
CELDAS100TM KEY FEATURES
Owing to the CELDAS100TM real-time operating system, users can guarantee scan times for data acquisition as well as reaction times for critical events. Moreover, since data acquisition and control functions can be integrated in the QNX environment, the need for stand-alone subsystems components such as PLC's and Process Controllers is practically eliminated.
The CELDAS100TM sub-divides I/O into critical and less-critical parameters, optimizing signal processing in order to eliminate time overhead inherent to systems depending solely on multiplexed or serial data transmission. For critical test parameters such as speed, vibration and torque, data acquisition rates of up to 100,000 samples/second can be achieved.
