Dewesoft, Whitehouse, OH, introduced single-channel KRYPTON data acquisition modules for use in harsh environments such as exposure to extreme temperatures, water spray or submersion, or high shock and vibration. The modules measure 62 × 56 × 29 mm (2.44 × 2.2 × 1.14”) and are machined from an aluminum brick. After the industrial-grade electronics are installed, the units are sealed with thermally conductive and electrically isolating rubber. Units are waterproof and can withstand shocks up to 100 G. The modules meet IP67 protection against water, dust, and other elements. Operating temperature ranges from -40 to 85 °C (185 °F). The EtherCAT interface runs at 100 Mbps Full Duplex bus speed, providing for 6 MB/s to 10 MB/s data throughput per chain. Modules intended for dynamic measurements can sample up to 40 kS/s. All modules on the chain, which can be spread out as far as 100 m (328 feet) between nodes, are precisely synchronized.
