DTI-Logger, data acquisition system (DAQ) / 5343B
The DTI-Logger Type 5343B is a powerful data acquisition system for the applications of vehicle dynamics, fatigue strength and tire tests based on the standard DTI bus (Digital Transducer Interface).
- 8 DTI ports, to connect up to 96 sensors
- Data transfer, synchronization, configuration and power supply via one cable
- Crosslinking of of up to three DTI-Loggers via SyncSwitch Type 5614A
- Configuration via Ethernet and KiCenter software
- Data recording and online display of the measurement signals via KiCenter
- Option for decentralized data acquisition
The DTI-Logger is based on DTI technology, which represents a universal bus system for the complete application. Signals are digitized as needed and a DTI signal is converted. This occurs directly in the DTI sensors or – in the case of existing sensors – via corresponding DTI converters. Therefore, as an example, signals can easily be transferred via the Kistler CAN/DTI converter into DTI signals. Because the DTI-Logger also takes care of supplying power to the connected DTI sensors, the required cabling can be done substantially more easily and rationally so that the installation of the measuring system can be done more efficiently. Together with the daisy chain capability, this approach enables decentralized data acquisition, in which the signals can be digitized and converted directly at the point of acquisition. The sensor data then flow in a fail-safe manner into the central Kistler DTI-Logger and are transferred via Ethernet into the computer and recorded there. The calibration values and the relevant physical variables are automatically detected by the KiCenter (Kistler software). Moreover, the KiCenter permits the configuration of all DTI sensors that are part of the measuring system. This guarantees maximum process safety and efficient use of time.
