GN8101B, GN8102B, GN8103B: Input Cards for Ultra-Fast Mechanical and Electrical Signals

The GN8101B, GN8102B and GN8103B data acquisition (DAQ) input cards offer eight channels each at a very high speed. With selectable anti-aliasing filtering, high bandwidth, and low-noise input amplifiers with 0.1% error, these cards transform the Genesis HighSpeed series into an extremely fast transient recorder – that too at a surprisingly low price per channel. In order to achieve the best resolution for each speed setting, they come in the following three versions:

  • GN8103B: 14-bit resolution with a sample rate of 25 MS/s
  • GN8102B: 14-bit resolution with a sample rate of 100 MS/s
  • GN8101B: 14-bit resolution with a sample rate of 250 MS/s

The enhanced resolution mode increases the input resolution for all models to a 16-bit at lower speeds. The great memory capacity of 8 GByte per board enables capturing longer events, while the digital trigger feature ensures that the data is acquired as and when the event happens.

High Signal Fidelity

  • Error 0.1%
  • 14-/15-/16-bit resolution; dynamic  resolution increase
  • +/-10 mV to +/-100 V input range
  • 1 MOhm or 50 Ohm input
  • Analog anti-aliasing filter or use in Wideband
  • Digital Butterworth and Bessel signal filters

Reliable data acquisition can be achieved even in difficult environments due to high-end input stages

Reliable Acquisition

  • 8 channels for simultaneous acquisition
  • Digital triggers for each channel
  • Up to 200 triggers/s
  • 8 GByte RAM memory
  • Sample and trigger synchronization between cards and between mainframes (fiber-optical)
  • Automatic data dump to local or PC hard drive

Never miss an event again, nor lose data afterward, which is ensured by a structure built for this


  • Sweep-based acquisition or continuous streaming, even simultaneously
  • Sample rate switching on trigger
  • Live scope display
  • Extremely fast download speed, up to 400 MB/s to PC
  • DSP for real time math (at a reduced speed)
  • Additional counter / timer channels and outputs

Directly access the data of interest by combining scope, transient recorder, and DAQ features

The product literature including the data sheet will be available soon.

Perception Enterprise (1-PERC-E64) is no longer required to run the 64-bit version of Perception. Therefore all Perception versions are available in 64-bit.

This 64-bit version of Perception includes "Full install", "Offline install" and "Free viewer install" - each installation with own set of features.

The Free viewer version of Perception software can be used free of charge.

Please note: Perception now includes the instruments firmware. That means it no longer requires an additional download of the firmware for the GEN DAQ systems.
