Krypton EtherCAT Data Acquisition

The Krypton is a rugged and distributed EtherCAT data acquisition system.  This system tracks field measurements in extreme and harsh environments.  It has an IP67 rating and operates in  temperatures from -40° to +85°C.  It also has high shock protection thus making it perfect for rugged environments.

EtherCAT Data Acquisition

This data acquisition system also uses 100 Mbit datalink thanks to its EtherCAT protocol technology. The Kryptons fast data bus allows users to daisy-chain Krypton Units together.  Furthermore, at the end of the chain, the RJ45 cable plugs into the Ethernet port of your PC or 8-pin LEMO connector.  As a result it’s able to connect to powerful computers liken the Krypton CPU, SBOX R2DB, R4 or R8.

In addition to this, the EtherCAT brings another big advantage – zero configuration. This is because Krypton devices do not require any complex IP setup.  This is in thanks to Krypton’s Dewesoft X software which automatically recognises and set up devices.

Finally, only a single cable required for data, power, and synchronization.  This cable can can run up to 100 meters (300 feet) from module to module connecting amplifiers together.

Small & Flexible Data Acquisition

Krypton data acquisition modules are small, rugged, and modular.  As a result, they are perfect for field measurements in any environment and can fit perfectly in tight places near sensors.  Therefore, by removing the need for cables users can save money, effort and avoid writing errors.  This feature also helps users bring data acquisition closer to the origin of data, thus improving signal quality as a result.

A Robust and Rugged Build

Krypton DAQ modules are robust.  Their build consists of aluminium bricks and industrial-grade electronics. Additionally, thermally conductive and electrically isolative rubber seals the units.  Finally, a rubber band around the KRYPTON chassis further protects it from shocks. As a result, it’s waterproof, shockproof and can withstand shocks up to 100G. Furthermore, the Krypton can also operate in extremely harsh environments.  For example operating temperatures can span from -40°C to +85°C.

Features of the SIRIUS Krypton Data Acquisition System

  • Distributed DAQ: Krypton DAQ modules bring data acquisition closer to sensors and distribute DAQ modules down to a single input channel.
  • EtherCAT DAQ: EtherCAT protocol with 100Mb bus speed is used for data transmission, data synchronisation, and power supply. Krypton units use a single cable to connect to data, power, and synchronisation.
  • Up to 100m Between Units: Krypton units can distribute over a large area – up to 100 meters between DAQ nodes.
  • Rugged IP67: All Krypton modules are rugged and have IP67 protection.  Built for extreme weather and harsh environments.
  • 1, 3, 4, 8, and 16 Channel Units: KRYPTON DAQ modules are available in various configurations spanning from tiny single-channel units up to bigger 16-channel units. Instruments can distribute down to a single channel.
  • Up To 20 kHz/CH Sampling Rate: Multi-channel KRYPTON DAQ modules can achieve a sampling rate of up to 20 kS/second and KRYPTON ONE single channel up to 40 kS/second.
  • Universal Analog Inputs: Universal analog inputs are available that 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 adapters.
  • Software Included With Free Lifetime Upgrades: Easy to use & very robust.  DewesoftX software included. The software comes with lifetime free upgrades and no hidden costs, bringing you intuitive configuration, smart sensors, advanced storage, and analysis capabilities.
