16-bit A/D Transient Recorder PCI Cards

Strategic Test (Woburn, MA) has released six new Transient Recorder cards in the UF2- 4700 series. Using multiple 16-bit ADC’s for true simultaneous sampling, the UF2-4700 cards are available with a choice of maximum sampling rates of 100 kS/s, 250 kS/s, and 500 kS/s, and come in 8- or 16- channel configurations. Each channel contains an independent amplifier that allows the user to program it with the voltage range to best match each sensor. Eight ranges are provided from ±50 mV to ±10 V. A self-calibration feature ensures the removal of any DC offsets prior to recording. Based on the new PCI-X (66 MHz/32-it PCI) bus-based UF2 series carrier card, these cards can continuously transfer data to the host PC at up to 112 mega samples (225 Mbyte) per second.
