Real Time Data Acquisition System – RT

The SIRIUS® RT is a Data Acquisition System with real time EtherCAT bus.

With high end signal conditioning amplifiers combined with real-time EtherCAT data bus for low latency data output capability to 3rd party EtherCAT® real time controllers.

This is the reason why it is integrated into existing test bed real time controllers world-wide. This system completely removes the need for traditional control system I/O’s, analog cabling and complex configurations.

If you are looking for a real time solution to save you time and money, the SIRIUS® RT is the right solution and much more.

The Dewesoft SIRIUS® RT is a real time data acquisition system. Firstly, it performs high speed buffered data acquisition and feeds real time date to any 3rd party EtherCAT® master. Such as Beckoff, MTS FlexTest, Syclone Clemessy, Labview and others.

Firstly, the system features a powerful built in processing computer with reliable SSD storage and a suite of modern connection interfaces. In addition, the high-end signal conditioning amplifiers are suitable for almost every sensor and signal. All supported with DewesoftX, the industry leader in data acquisition software which is included for free.

Another feature is that the SIRIUS® RT System brings the world of data acquisition and control into a single, simple to use instrument. Therefore, allowing users to perform two tasks simultaneously.

  1. Firstly, the ability to acquire, store and process signals from virtually any sensor with signal conditioning amplifiers to an internal computer with a solid-state drive.
  2. Send the acquired data in real time through the real time EtherCAT port using one cable to any 3rd party EtherCAT master.

This real time DAQ system with Ethernet solution is unique. Plus, it brings many improvements to your in-vehicle test routine.

Key features of SIRIUS® RT Real Time Data Acquisition System include:

DAQ AND CONTROL: Built around SIRIUS Rack technology. Therefore, features the same versatile and powerful amplifiers for world leading signal conditioning, data logging, and data processing. However, include an additional EtherCAT data bus that sends data in real time to any 3rd party EtherCAT master.

DUAL MODE: EtherCAT slave interface can be used to provide real time data to a 3rd party control system. Whilst the internal bus, allows full speed data recording to Dewesoft X in parallel. Therefore, providing the best of both worlds in terms of data acquisition and control which had previously been separated.

HIGH END SIGNAL CONDITIONING: Built around SIRIUS® DAQ technology. Feature same versatile and powerful amplifier for world leading signal conditioning. See SIRIUS product page for full overview.

ETHERCAT EXPANSION PORT: Includes EtherCAT master port with built in synchronisation. This provides easy connection and extension of any of Dewesoft’s EtherCAT based DAQ Systems. For example, KRYPTON, IOLITE or SIRIUSe.

128 ANALOG INPUTS: Can be configured with up to 128 high dynamic analog input channels. Select between signal conditioning amplifiers. Such as voltage, current, IEPE, charge, strain, LVDT, thermocouple, RTD and resistance signals.

CONNECTIVITY INTERFACES: The built in computer includes modern connectivity interfaces. Such as Wireless LAN (WiFi), dual gigabit LAN, USB 3.0, GPS/GNSS, HDMI, EtherCAT and synchronisation is available.

64 COUNTER/ENCODER INPUTS CHANNELS: Configure your system with up to 64 counter/encoder input channels. Or how about 192 digital input channels. All counter inputs feature Dewesoft’s patented SuperCounter® technology. Therefore, providing the best resolution for angle and speed measurement.

100 Hz GPS with RTK: For precise GPS positioning, integrate an optional 10Hz or 100Hz GNSS receiver directly into the DAQ System. GNSS receivers offer optional RTK support to improve positioning accuracy down to 1cm.

ALL IN ONE INSTRUMENTS: SIRIUS® RT Systems offer standalone operation. In addition, built in power SBOX data processing computers, SSD data logging hard drive and display (R8rt).
