Rhode Island-based Electro Standards Laboratories has presented its newest commercial off-the-shelf smart sensor board, designed for embedded applications that require high speed and high accuracy analog and digital data acquisition.

The CellMite ProD model 4349 is a high-performance embedded data acquisition and sensor monitoring node accessible via an Ethernet network. This model creates both a low-speed monitoring data stream and a high-speed transient event data stream that are designed to measure and report both static and pulsed sensor events. The CellMite ProD features a wide input voltage range of 19 V DC to 36 V DC, along with 3 kV DC communication channel optical isolation to minimize system ground loops.

The M4349 uses 11 channels of 12 bit analog inputs that can be sampled up to 10,000 samples/second. Digital data acquisition is also supported with 64 bits of simultaneously sampled digital inputs, 4 bits of isolated digital inputs and 3 digital counter inputs that are also sampled at up to 10,000 samples/ second. The high sampling rates make the Model 4349 perfect for recording important sensor data from transient applications such as pulsed power systems. Direct PC to network communication is supported by a 10/100 BaseT Ethernet data channel with user selectable event and monitor data packet size to minimize network congestion.

The model 4349 is ideal for high traffic network applications, and commercial off-the-shelf applications. Applications include high speed data logging, recording pulsed sensor events, multiple data stream monitoring, recording transient data triggered by events, and multi-rate and mixed signal data recording. For applications requiring on-board data storage, the CellMite ProD features 750,000 words of onboard memory that can be used to buffer transient event data.
