ADLINK announces the release of its PCIe-9529 PCI Express dynamic signal acquisition module, featuring up to eight 24-bit analog input channels simultaneously sampling at 192 kS/s, and a 110 dB dynamic range. All input channels of the PCIe-9529 incorporate 4 mA bias current integrated electronic piezoelectric (IEPE) signal conditioning for accelerometers and microphones, ideally positioning the module for machine condition monitoring, NVH, and phased array data acquisition applications.
The PCIe-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 PCIe-9529 supports Windows 8, Windows 7, and Windows XP operating systems, and is fully compatible with third-party software such as LabVIEWTM 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.
ADLINK’s PXIe-9529 dynamic signal acquisition modules for sound and vibration testing present an optimized solution for high channel count applications. Innovative and flexible, the PXI Express modular electronic instrumentation platform meets all the challenges described, providing a more efficient solution for building test and measurement equipment. The ADLINK PXIe-9529’s 8-channel design provides easy expansion up to 136 channels in a single 18-slot PXI Express chassis or more while still maintaining precise timing and synchronization between channels, resulting in a cost-optimized solution for high channel count applications such as massive wind tunnel aerodynamic testing.
When performing high channel count data acquisition, the PXIe-9529’s built-in phase-locked loop (PLL) allows multiple modules to lock onto an external reference timing signal, such as PXI_CLK10 or PXIe_CLK100 from the PXI chassis backplane, such that each module can perform measurement 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.
