USB powered data acquisition system for accelerometers


The Silicon Designs 3340 G-Logger – now available from Bestech Australia – is a low-cost, USB-powered portable data acquisition system with powerful FFT analysis and display capabilities typically found in other much more expensive systems.

The three-channel 3340 is designed to optimize the low-noise performance characteristics of single and triaxial variable capacitance MEMS accelerometer modules with analog output and 8-32 VDC excitation.

The G-Logger offers 16-bit data acquisition, with data rates of 1-10k samples per second and per axis, through each of its available input channels.

Silicon Designs’ G-Logger has a simple and intuitive user interface that is built on an NI LabVIEW platform for ease of customer use. It also features: real-time data acquisition and readout capabilities with live streaming; real-time pause, scroll back and rewind; SD-card recording of up to 32 Gb, multi-speed recording playback; and remote operation via TCP. Average system setup time is less than five minutes.
