The Slice IP68 data acquisition system from Diversified Technical Systems (DTS) is designed to gather physical measurements in extreme environments. The enclosure has sealed layers and IP68-rated connectors to make it impervious to shock, water and dust from -30° to 80 C° temperatures.
With a footprint of 60×60 mm, it is designed to embed on or in test articles, such as a wheel or rotating shaft, without the need for waterproof enclosures or slip rings.
It supports a variety of external sensors including bridge and IEPE transducers for gathering measurements including acceleration, displacement, strain, pressure, temperature, voltage and more.
The modular system is user-configurable based on required sensor support, sampling rates and channel count. The three-channel sensor input layers can support up to 24 channels per stack, which can be daisy-chained for higher channel count tests.
The standalone system is designed for trucking and heavy equipment including agricultural and marine applications.
