Data recorder for synchronous data acquisition and fault analysis

The intelligent transient recorder for synchronous recording of transient and periodic processes. Measurement data can be triggered or continuously recorded over long time periods. Expert Transient is equipped with the powerful FPGA technology.

Synchronous detection and high accuracy with the transient recorder

The Expert Transient device is capable of synchronously acquiring and independently saving analog measurement data up to a sampling rate of 50 kHz per channel in combination with digital signals. Data storage is highly secure due to an option for parallel recording to internal and external storage media.

Expert Transient is equipped with 4, 8, 12 or 16 synchronous analog inputs and 4 digital inputs. The system can be extended to over 100 analog signals via a LAN interface with high-speed synchronization protocols. An extension for additional synchronous digital inputs is also possible.

ProfiSignal 20 Go software enables recorded signals to be portrayed live in y(t) diagrams. Even large volumes of historical data are easy to analyse using the ProfiSignal software. The device's internal storage can be accessed using ProfiSignal 20 Go and the data analysed offline. A signal sequence diagram is especially useful in providing an overview of the chronology of a malfunction event.

Functions

Universal inputs and outputs and secure monitoring

Sampling of analog and digital measurement data is performed fully synchronously. This enables precise identification of the sequence of events in a malfunction. Measurement data can be recorded either continuously or according to triggered events. Users are able to define triggers to also record pre and post event data. Expert Transient is available in two versions with 4, 8, 12 or 16 analog inputs as well as 4 digital inputs. The device can be extended by up to 100 analog or digital inputs.

Applications without PC support can store up to 14 GB data in the device's internal storage. Parallel recording to a high-capacity external NAS device is also possible. Expert Transient has an optional Wi-Fi interface.

Visualisation and operation

With ProfiSignal 20 Basic you can create individual diagrams using a wide range of operating and monitoring elements. Both continuous processes (e.g. production data acquisition) and discontinuous measurement tasks (e.g. test measurements) can be visualised, operated and monitored without any programming effort. You can create the operating and monitoring diagrams by assembling and configuring the prefabricated elements.

Software channels as extended functions

Realise and execute monitoring and automation tasks easily 

The Delphin measuring and testing devices have extended functions that are summarised under the term software channels. The online measurement data is calculated with the software channels and then used for visualisation, storage or control.  

In this way, entire programme sequences can be configured very simply and intuitively with the regulation and control function. These then run autonomously without PC support. This is how you use your data logger effectively, also as a monitoring device or PLC replacement. 

The software channels enable functions such as limit value monitoring, integration or online calculation and are configured very easily. This means that even users who are not experts in programming can easily implement their own monitoring tasks or balancing independently in the unit.
