Dynamic Signal Analyzer

Data Translation (Marlboro, MA) announced the DT7837 ARM-based dynamic signal analyzer module for noise and vibration measurement. The computer portion of the module uses a ruggedized BeagleBone Black ARM processor. Complete source code is provided that can be modified and used without any restrictions. The front-end design allows simultaneous measurement of four 24-bit IEPE sensor inputs at a sampling rate of 102.4 kS/s. The module is used for precision measurements with microphones, accelerometers, and other transducers that have a large dynamic range. It also includes a 24-bit stimulus output, tachometer, general-purpose digital I/O, external trigger functions, and counter/timers. The ARM block processor includes BBB functions, FPGA, memory and support peripherals, interfaces for a USB host and client, Ethernet, power, and SD card.

Portable Analyzer

The Thermo Scientific Gemini analyzer from Thermo Fisher Scientific (Tewksbury, MA) provides FTIR and Raman spectroscopy in a single, handheld instrument. The analyzer is designed for chemical response personnel, explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) technicians, and other responders requiring heavy equipment for lengthy durations. The analyzer includes a library that enables operators to identify unknown solids and liquids, from explosives and chemical warfare agents to industrial chemicals and precursors. For substances identifiable by both Raman and FTIR, the analyzer provides comprehensive analysis, and can switch between analysis techniques using a tactical keypad or touchscreen. Features include Scan Assist to guide the operator through technology selection and sampling, a motorized anvil that adjusts sample pressure based on user settings and enables Scan Delay for FTIR analysis, and built-in safety features to protect against potentially hazardous substances.

Laser Micrometer

Micro-Epsilon (Raleigh, NC) offers the optoCONTROL 2520 compact laser micrometer with integrated controller and a Web interface that runs on HTML5 instead of Java. It features a 46-mm measuring range and a maximum transmitter/ receiver distance of up to 2 m. The Web browser interface for configuration and setup does not require installation of any additional software. The cross-device sensor enables the user to run it from a smartphone. A measurement chart displays limit values. In addition, the system provides various averaging and filter methods, as well as statistics features. Up to eight segments can be measured and output simultaneously. The user can switch the display from metric (mm) to Imperial (inch) measurement units. The smallest object diameter detectable is 0.5 mm. Data output is performed via RS-422, Ethernet, or EtherCAT interfaces. For Free Info Visit http://info.hotims.com/55592-409

Moisture Analyzer

The MS-70 400-Watt halogen moisture balance from Tovatech (Maplewood, NJ) is designed for quality control when testing materials such as plastic resins, where moisture content specifications are tight. The thermogravimetric analyzer calculates moisture content by loss of weight on drying. It provides resolution to 0.0001g (0.001% moisture), stores 20 programs in memory, includes WinCT software for real-time graphic display of drying profile on a PC, and features a vacuum fluorescent display panel.

Gas Monitor

The GSM-60 from ENMET, LLC (Ann Arbor, MI) is a microprocessor-based gas monitor designed for use in industrial process, aerospace, pharmaceutical, and semiconductor applications. The system incorporates an internal sample draw pump and gas sensors. It can be custom-configured with both internal and external sensors for monitoring a combination of gas parameters including VOCs, dewpoint, oxygen, and CO, or a number of other target gases including O3, HF, HCl, and Cl2. As an option, the monitor can be connected to a range of remote 4-20 mA toxic or combustible gas sensors/transmitters. For Free Info Visit http://info.hotims.com/55592-408

Vector Network Analyzer

Keysight Technologies (Santa Rosa, CA) announced a new capability that adds a high-performance spectrum analyzer to the PNA and PNA-X Series of microwave vector network analyzers (VNAs). This capability reduces test times and simplifies system connections. It adds high-speed spurious measurements in the instrument used to characterize S-parameters, compression, and distortion in satellite equipment, defense electronics, and commercial wireless devices. The VNA can perform simultaneous spectrum measurements on all test ports, and enables one-connection characterization of mixers, converters, amplifiers, modules, or subsystems. Example measurements include LO, RF, and IF feedthrough; harmonics; intermodulation products; and other higher-order mixing products. For Free Info Visit http://info.hotims.com/55592-405

Digital Transceiver

The V616 digital transceiver from Innovative Integration (Camarillo, CA) supports one or two plug-in modules, each featuring four independent channels of DDC, two DUC, and one spectrum analyzer embedded in the Xilinx Virtex-6 FPGA. It allows users to monitor the wide-band or narrow-band spectrum and record the data directly from the ADCs or down-convert the channels modulated on the IF band. The embedded PC supports contiguous recording at 2,000 MBytes until running out of disk space. The transmitter can play a recorded baseband waveform of independent bandwidth, and up-convert and modulate it on the IF band on the DACs. Each DDC/DUC has its own programmable tuner, programmable low-pass filtering, gain control, and decimation/interpolation setting, supporting independent channel bandwidths up to 100 MHz.
