B&K Precision, a manufacturer of test and measurement instruments, has announced the expansion of its Data Acquisition Recorder line with its DAS1800.
According to the company, this all-in-one unit offers an extensive set of features with a user-friendly interface designed to reduce the learning curve and improve overall efficiency. It also raises the bar for performance and configurability.

The DAS1800 provides sample rates of up to 1 MSa/s, a configurable base unit with 10 module slots, large internal solid-state drive of 2 TB, a 15.6 inch, full HD multi-touch display and optional internal battery lasting up to 3.5 hours on a single charge. The battery configured model only weighs 15 lbs — making it what the company claims is the lightest all-in-one system in its class and ideal for field testing.
Measurement modules available include:

  • Universal: Four-channel isolated universal input module for measuring voltages up to 600 V DC or 424 VRMS, temperature with thermocouples, and current (with shunt) at up to 1 MSa/s/ch
  • High impedance: High impedance version of the universal module with 10 MΩ for ranges ≥ ± 1 V and 25 MΩ for ranges ≤ ± 0.5 mV
  • Multiplexed: Eight-channel non-isolated differential input module for measuring voltages up to
    ± 48 V, temperature with thermocouples and RTDs, 4-20 mA current (with shunt) and resistance up to 10 kΩ at sampling rates up to 5 kSa/s.

The software features of the DAS 800 save time acquiring, visualizing and analyzing data. Quickly set up channels by storing and recalling sensor information from the customizable sensor library. Visualize data in real-time as waveforms or numeric values and create custom dashboards. Playback recordings and easily navigate to points of interest using touch gestures such as pinch to zoom and one finger scrolling. B&K Precision also provides free DASpro software for viewing and analyzing recorded data on a PC.
