eDAQXR-lite: Compact, Rugged, Mobile Data Acquisition System

The eDAQXR-lite is the go anywhere, test anything compact version of the eDAQXR. It is engineered using the same technology as the eDAQ-lite and eDAQXR and has similar leading-edge signal conditioning and a capacity to perform a broad range of on-board data processing, triggering, intelligent data storage, and complex computations.

Not every test utilizes hundreds of channels. Tests can be accomplished with both small and high channel counts using a single family of products. There is no learning curve, new software, or file formats; and eDAQXR and eDAQXR-lite systems can be seamlessly networked together.

The compact eDAQXR-lite can be installed inconspicuously to collect data under discrete conditions; for example, behind a dashboard panel.


  • Temperature range: -20 to 65℃

Easy to Use

  • Intelligent data storage; collects relevant measurement data in condensed manageable form
  • Expansion layers / modules to create powerful data acquisition systems
  • Browser based software (no software installation) with import/export from Excel


  • eDAQXR-lite is compatible to eDAQXR and can be combined with the SomatXR modules
  • 4-32 analog channels centralized, can be networked or externally expanded
  • Smaller foot print than the eDAQXR

Typical Applications

Recreational Vehicles and Automotive

  • Compact to easily fit in vehicles
  • CAN and GPS are built into the base processor
  • Product durability testing
  • Mobile acquisition of load mechanical components on bad road surfaces (RLDA testing)

Agriculture, Construction Machinery and Mining

  • Complete vehicle, or component structural testing
  • Easily distributed for large vehicles
  • Shock tested to withstand the harshest of environments
  • Road Load Data Acquisition (RLDA) and high-end fleet monitoring


  • Outdoor structural monitoring where only a few sensor signal are needed

  • Monitoring of multiple (prototype) vehicles based on CAN and analog inputs

  • Environmental testing to withstand harshest conditions

  • Long distance sync between systems using GPS is possible


The EXRLCPU is the processor for the stand-alone mobile data acquisition system and is considered the workhorse for the eDAQXR platform. Data from various inputs are stored onboard and can be downloaded after the test is completed. Tests may include minutes or even days of data while running long term vehicle tests. The system can either be disconnected from the PC while the test is running, remain connected via an Ethernet cable, or via WiFi to monitor channels in real-time. The powerful onboard processor can perform real-time calculations and provide powerful real-time displays of channels like strip charts, digital, FFT, XY, and much more. The system can even send text messages or emails if a fault condition is encountered.

The eDAQXRL supports the existing eDAQ-LITE expansion layers, with the exception of the ELCOM layer.  CAN and GPS ports are built into the new CPU layer, minimizing the overall system size.  The eDAQXRL can also support a distributed architecture when incorporating HBM SomatXR modules. The setup software resides on the processor, so setup can be easily done using a web browser such as Chrome.
