SomatXR Data Acquisition System: Rugged and Flexible

The rugged SomatXR data acquisition system is specially developed for use in harsh environments. It is extremely reliable and precise - and protected from humidity, dust, shock and vibration. The modular system is well suited to a variety of applications such as vehicle testing, stationary measurements and structural health monitoring. The modules can be operated in a wide temperature range and can be flexibly combined via Ethernet interface to match a wide range of applications. The data recorder allows for easy access to all measured data via browser and web interface.

Extremely rugged

  • Temperature range: -40 to +80 °C
  • IP65/IP67 degree of protection (dust, water)
  • Vibration-proof up to min. 10 g
  • Shock-proof up to 75 g
  • High signal quality due to tried and tested HBM carrier frequency technology
  • Significantly reduced signal interference due to positioning of the amplifier close to the measuring points

High measurement quality also in harsh environments due to extremely rugged design

Easy to operate

  • Web interface for intuitive operation
  • No additional software needs to be installed
  • Browser for convenient real-time parameterization and data visualization
  • Ethernet interface for decentralized networks
  • catman PostProcess software allows for efficient data analysis

Easy handling through direct web access without any additional software

Modular

  • Modular system including data recorder, universal and bridge amplifier, etc.
  • Scalable to up to 10,000 channels
  • Many different transducers and interfaces can be integrated using a universal input
  • Can be combined with QuantumX

Flexible, individually expandable and fit for the future due to modular design and universal interfaces

Supports a Wide Range of Topologies

  • With or without a data recorder: It’s your choice
  • Measurement modules can be individually combined

Screenshot SomatXR Web Interface

You can sit back and monitor the test independently of the measuring point: On transmission of the measurement signal from the measuring point to the CX23-R data recorder, data can be viewed and processed directly via the data recorder’s web interface without any software installation – anytime and anywhere.

Parameterize channels, monitor measurement jobs and visualize data in just a few clicks. Standard network Ethernet technology allows for remote access to SomatXR. Wireless access to the web server is also possible via mobile devices.
