Model 1586A Super-DAQ has up to 40 analog input channels and scan rates as fast as 10 channels per second. The precision temperature scanner is suited for applications such as thermal mapping, process sensor calibration, quality control testing, lifecycle testing, process monitoring and environmental testing that are common in industries including pharmaceutical, biotechnology and food processing. It is designed for use on the factory floor, where channel count and scan speeds are important, and in the calibration laboratory, where accuracy and quick input connections are required.
It can measure thermocouples (accuracy of ±0.5°C), platinum resistance thermometers (accuracy of ±0.005°C), thermistors (accuracy of ±0.002°C), DC current, DC voltage and resistance. The Super-DAQ, with both internal and external input modules, has a color display with channel indicators that can chart up to four channels simultaneously and includes four modes of operation (scan, monitor, measure and digital multimeter). It also includes alarms that indicate when a channel measurement exceeds an assigned high or low limit.
