If professional data acquisition is required, however, the long-time specialist for PC measurement, BMC Messsysteme GmbH (bmcm) focuses on the LAN network. Where the USB device has its limitations, the LAN data acquisition system is the adequate solution featuring crucial advantages as the following examples demonstrate:
Effects of earthquakes can be measured at any number of places worldwide. Measurement data recorded with different LAN data acquisition systems are comparable with each other, because they are synchronous to real-time, and can be transmitted via internet to a central PC.
How do you monitor the water pressure to a barrage on both sides of a river during a flood, the river separating the two measuring points? If you do not want to install two measurement systems, a cost-saving solution would be WLAN – wireless without annoying cabling.
When signals are recorded in harsh environment, e.g. in field use or in a machine hall, a measurement system is exposed to extreme influences, such as humidity or dirt, especially in long-term measurement. In this case, only the LAN data acquisition system is installed at the measurement point. The recorded signals are transmitted interference-
Measurement and control at many different positions of a production process can easily be done with LAN measurement systems. The data are brought together to a central PC via a shared network cable, are related to each other, and analyzed. Relations become visible. The multi-point measuring system can be extended at will.
LAN data acquisition systems from bmcm are available as standalone version (LAN-AD16f) or as an all-in-one solution with integrated amplifier technology designed as a desktop unit (AMS42-LAN16f)
Use of LAN measurement technology is especially recommended for data acquisition via many channels, at different places, across great distances, wireless, or without interferences.
The subject "synchronization"
The latest version 4.5 of NextView 4 supports synchronization to real-time for LAN measurement hardware from bmcm. A free, fully-functional 30-day trial of the software for data acquisition and analysis is provided.
"Simply measure …" is one of the key principles of BMC Messsysteme GmbH. Who wants to simply measure, uses USB. Who simply wants to professionally measure, decides in favor of LAN.
