Rugged DAQ EtherCAT Modules

KRYPTON Rugged DAQ modules are engineered precisely to withstand all conditions and operate flawlessly in cold places, hot places, dust, mud, water and snow. KRYPTON’s are shock proof, vibration proof, milled out of full block of aluminium and filled with rubber making them fully water-proof.

They operate off the EtherCAT Data Acquisition protocol using a single cable for data synchronisation, transmission and power with 100Mb bus speed.  They have IP67 degree of protection, offer high shock protection and operate in extreme temperatures of -40° to +85°C.

Making them ideal for in field measurement in extreme and harsh applications such as Defence, Mining and other tough industries.

DEWESoft KRYPTON are Rugged DAQ Modules with EtherCAT DAQ Protocol.  Firstly, designed for distributed measurement with preferred placement near the source of data and sensors. Secondly, they use a single cable for data, power & synchronisation which improves signal quality.  Data Link allows 100 Metre Distance from module to module or stacked and locked.

Thirdly, KRYPTON Rugged EtherCAT Data Acquisition Modules are connected to your computer.  This is via a standard Ethernet Connection (EtherCAT Protocol). Hence, it provides a 100Mbit data link for hundreds of channels with more than 10 kHz data rate per channel and perfect synchronisation between devices.  Also, they automatically detect the powerful DEWESoft X Software which is included with every KRYPTON Module.

Main Features of the KRYPTON Rugged DAQ

  • DISTRIBUTED MEASUREMENTS:  Designed for distributed measurements bringing data acquisition closer to the sensors.  KRYPTON allows distributing DAQ modules down to a single input channel.
  • EtherCAT DAQ PROTOCOL:  Data Transmission, Synchronisation and Power Supply is conducted via single cable with 100Mb Bus Speed.
  • UP TO 100m BETWEEN UNITS: With KRYPTON, units can be spread over a large area with up 100 M between each node
  • IP67 RATED:  Ready for use in extreme weather and harsh environments.
  • 1, 3, 4, 8 and 16 CHANNEL UNITS: Available in various configurations from tiny single channel units to 16 channel units.

  • UNIVERSAL ANALOG INPUTS:  Can accept voltage and full/half/quarter bridge signals natively as well as IEPE, charge, thermocouples, RTD, current, resistance and LVDT signals with the use of DSI Adaptors.
  • BEST PART IS THE POWER FUL SOFTWARE INCLUDED WITH FREE LIFETIME UPGRADES:  No hidden costs and lifetime free upgrades.  Therefore, bringing you intuitive configuration, smart sensors, advanced storage and analysis capabilities.

 

EtherCAT Distributed Data Acquisition Protocol Technology

KRYPTON data acquisition systems are using 100 Mbit datalink based on EtherCAT protocol technology. Data link enables daisy chain of units. At the end of the chain, RJ45 cable is used to plug into the Ethernet port of your PC computer or the, more rugged 8-pin LEMO connector.  This allows connection to Dewesoft’s robust, powerful computers like KRYPTON CPUSBOXR2DB, R4 or R8.

EtherCAT brings another big advantage – zero configuration. KRYPTON devices do not require any complex IP setup. Simply connect them together into PC and Dewesoft X software will recognise and setup devices automatically.

There is the single cable required for data, power, and synchronisation which can run up to 100 metres from module to module connecting amplifiers together.

 

Small and Flexible Rugged DAQ System

Rugged DAQ that is small

KRYPTON Rugged DAQ modules are perfect for field measurements in any environment. The small size allows them to fit in tight places and can be placed closely to the sensors.

Finally, this reduces the cost of the sensor cabling, chances of wiring errors and improves the signal quality.

 

Robust and Rugged Data Acquisition

KRYPTON DAQ modules are robust. Each one is machined out of aluminium bricks and has industrial-grade electronics installed. Units are then sealed with thermally conductive and electrically isolative rubber. For the final touch, Dewesoft add a rubber band around KRYPTON chassis.  This protects the unit from the shocks. The result is an IP67 degree of protection. Units are waterproof, shockproof, and can withstand shocks up to 100G.

KRYPTON can operate in harsh environments and is rated to work in temperature span from -40°C to +85°C.

Extensive testing in the Dewesoft laboratories ensures bulletproof quality and worry-free testing under extreme conditions.

KRYPTON also has quality analogue amplifiers for precise signal measurement. There is an array of different modules are available for almost any sensor:

  • STG: Universal differential voltage and Full/Half/Quarter bridge input. Available in 13and 6 channel configurations. Compatible with DSI adapters.
  • TH: Universal isolated thermocouple input module. Accepts all thermocouple types. Available in 8and 16 channel configurations and as a single channel for high voltage thermocouple measurements.
  • RTD: Universal differential PTx temperature, resistance and voltage. Available in 8 and 16 channel configurations.
