Saelig Introduces SAM40 24-Bit Data Acquisition for HDO Oscilloscopes

up to 24 channels for low frequency acquisition and analysis with a 4/8 channel Teledyne LeCroy 12-bit resolution high definition oscilloscope
Fairport, NY: Saelig Company, Inc. announces the availability of the Teledyne LeCroy SAM40 Data Acquisition Unit which provides up to 24 analog or digital input channels for low frequency (e.g. sensor signal) acquisition and analysis when connected to a 4 or 8 channel Teledyne L
eCroy 12-bit resolution high definition oscilloscope. This capability is ideal for system debug and analysis of motors and drives, power products, appliances, Internet of Things (IoT), vehicle/automotive devices, and other applications.in the embedded, electromechanical, and mechatronic designs in the medical, military, and aerospace fields.

The SAM40 offers high precision and accuracy 24-bit resolution measurements for signals up to 40 kHz bandwidth with a sample rate of 100kS/s. Operation is easy with plug-and-play support from a 4 or 8 channel 12-bit resolution Teledyne LeCroy oscilloscope. The SAM40 simply connects to the oscilloscope with a USB2.0 cable for data transfer and control/trigger commands, and with BNC cables for clock and timebase synchronization. No programming or complex setups are required. The oscilloscope’s math, measure, analysis, pass/fail and option packages utilize the sensor inputs the same as any other channel. This makes the Teledyne LeCroy’s deep toolbox even more powerful.

IEPE/ICP sensors are also supported with the built-in internal 4mA bias supply. The BNC signal inputs are compatible with wide variety of off-the-shelf sensors. The SAM40’s features include bandwidth limiting, with settings as low as 100 Hz to reduce visible noise, and adjustable gain in 1/2/5 steps, to accurately acquire and display a wide range of signal levels. All channels have 24-bit resolution, stored in 32-bit floating point format, with 0.05% total accuracy.

The SAM40 24-bit acquisition system offers a rescaling/unit conversion capability. Teledyne LeCroy’s unit conversion package provides the most intuitive display of sensor, mechatronic and electromechanical data. Each sensor channel input has a unique rescaling setup directly in the setup dialog with y=mx+b rescaling capability and selection of physical units. All unit conversions carry through logically when unitized sensor inputs are used in math or measurements.

The SAM40 is useful for analyzing analog speed or torque sensor signals, vibration sensors, accelerometers, and other mechatronic signals. Engineers commonly use multiple instruments to debug and validate complex deeply embedded control systems, mechatronics, and electro-mechanical systems. Multiple instruments report different information on different displays and in different formats. An HDO with a sensor acquisition module cost-effectively replaces multiple instruments with one consolidated view of system performance. Leverage the Teledyne LeCroy deep toolbox to perform math, measurements, pass/fail and other analysis on all acquired data, or apply an application package to gain even faster time to insight.

Available in 8, 16, or 24-channel inputs, the SAM40 Data acquisition Unit starts at $8,990 from Teledyne LeCroy’s authorized North American distributor Saelig Company, Inc. Fairport, NY.
