SIRIUS® Waterproof highlights

IP67 Degree of Protection

Designed for testing in extremely harsh environments. The unit is waterproof, dustproof, and can withstand shocks up to 100G. 

-40 to 60 °C

Extreme testing means testing in extreme temperatures. SIRIUS waterproof is ready for extremely cold and extremely hot climates.

Universal Analog Inputs

Truly universal analog inputs are available that can accept voltage, IEPE, full/half/quarter bridge, RTD, and resistance signals natively. Additional input modes such as charge, thermocouple, RTD, current, and LVDT signals are supported via our DSI adapters.

160 dB Dynamic Range

Our DualCoreADC® technology boosts dual 24-bit delta-sigma ADC's with an anti-aliasing filter on each analog channel, achieving an astonishing 160 dB dynamic range in time and frequency domain with 200 kHz sampling rate per channel. 

High Galvanic Isolation

SIRIUS signal conditioners provide high ±1000 V channel-to-channel and channel-to-ground galvanic isolation. This prevents damage to the systems from excessive voltage and avoids ground loops.

SuperCounter® Inputs

Each counter channel input is capable of three digital inputs, one event counter, encoder, period, pulse-width, duty-cycle, and precise frequency and angle measurement using patented SuperCounter® technology.

Sensor Excitation

Each analog input channel provides sensor excitation individually to power the connected sensors.

Fully Synchronized

All input channels - analog, digital, and CAN - are fully synchronized with each other with microsecond accuracy. Multiple devices can be further daisy-chained and synchronized with the same pin-point synchronization accuracy.

Software included

Every Dewesoft data acquisition system is bundled with award-winning DewesoftX data acquisition software. The software is easy to use but very rich and deep in functionality. All software updates are free forever with no hidden licensing or yearly maintenance fees.

Dewesoft quality and 7-year warranty

Enjoy our industry-leading 7-year warranty. Our data acquisition systems are made in Europe, utilizing only the highest build quality standards. We offer free and customer-focused technical support. Your investment into the Dewesoft solutions is protected for years ahead.

Ultra-Rugged Data Acquisition System

For testing in harsh environments, equipment needs to withstand extreme conditions like cold, dust, mud, and rain. 

SIRIUS waterproof is an ultra-rugged DAQ instrument with an IP67 degree of protection. DAQ system is not just extremely reliable, but also precise, and protected from water, humidity, dust, shock, vibration up to 100G and can work in -40 to +60 °C.

SIRIUS® signal conditioning technology

Data acquisition systems are built around our world-class SIRIUS® signal conditioning technology and offer the same top-performing technologies:

  • DualCoreADC® technology: high-dynamic range and signal-to-noise ratio (SNR).

  • SuperCounter® technology: high-speed synchronized angle and speed measurement.

  • Galvanic isolation: channel-to-channel and channel-to-ground isolation for best signal quality and safety.

Note: galvanic isolation does not apply to SIRIUS mini and MINITAURs instruments.

DualCoreADC® signal conditioning technology

The DualCoreADC® technology solves often-faced problems with signal measurement:

  • signal input overload,

  • noise, and

  • artificial frequencies in the signal caused by aliasing.

The input signal can be higher than expected by the signal conditioner (out-of-range) and therefore clipped by the ADC. This will result in an incorrect measurement and will require you to repeat the test all over again.

DualCoreADC technology prevents these problems. Each channel amplifier has two A/D converters that measure the high and the low gain of the input signal in parallel. This results in the full possible measuring range of the sensor and prevents the signal from being clipped. 

With DualCoreADC technology, SIRIUS data acquisition systems achieve more than 130 dB signal-to-noise ratio and more than 160 dB in dynamic range. This is 20x better than 24-bit DAQ systems and 20x less noise.

SuperCounters®: precise speed and angle measurement with counter and encoder sensors

Dewesoft data acquisition systems utilize a patented and registered trademark technology called SuperCounter®.

Counter inputs can measure the RPM and angle of rotating machines. In comparison to standard counters, which only output integer numbers one sample later (e.g. 1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 4), the Dewesoft SuperCounter inputs are able to extract accurate values like 1.37, 1.87, 2.37, etc. fully synchronized for time and amplitude.

This is done by measuring the exact time of the rising edge of the signal with an additional counter. Our SuperCounter inputs work on a 102.4 MHz time base, independent of the current analog sampling rate.

Counter inputs are fully synchronized with analog, CAN bus, and other data sources to enable easy applications like balancing, order tracking, and torsional vibrations.

USB or Distributed DAQ via EtherCAT Interface

SIRIUS waterproof slices are equipped with a USB and EtherCAT interface. Use USB data connection for fast data speeds up to 200 kHz per channel.

If you want to distribute the units closer to the sensors and over a large area then you can daisy-chain units together with a single EtherCAT cable. This single cable will be used for power, data, and synchronization for all units. The distance between units can be up to 100 meters (320 feet).

Using EtherCAT for the connection you will not only spare money on sensor cabling but also vastly improve signal quality.

Universal Analog Inputs

SIRIUS waterproof can have a variety of inputs:

  • SIRIUSiwe-6xSTGM-2xSTGM+ with 8 isolated universal & strain analog channels and two counter channels.

  • SIRIUSiwe-6xLV-2xLV+ with 8 isolated universal analog channels and two counter channels.

  • SIRIUSwe-HD-16xSTGS with 16 differential universal strain analog channels.

All universal analog inputs can be extended with our smart Dewesoft Sensor Interface adapters (DSI) which will transform any analog input into direct IEPE, Charge, Thermocouple, LVDT, RTD, or current input. All inputs are equipped with advanced TEDS sensor functionality for automatic sensor detection and plug-and-play configuration. 

Expandable and Compatible

Multiple SIRIUS waterproof data acquisition units can be stacked and synchronized together to expand the channel count.

SIRIUS waterproof is also compatible and can be extended with our ultra-rugged KRYPTON DAQ modules or standard SIRIUS DAQ slices in the same EtherCAT measurement line.

Working with multiple units is as simple as working with one unit. The data acquisition software will simply recognize all the available channels and you are ready to go.

Lovedby Many Engineers

Senior R&D boss shook the hand of the project manager: "You made the decision for the DAQ instrumentation." With Dewesoft instruments test work is fun again!

Dewesoft has transformed our approach to measurements. Prior to using Dewesoft, it would take us hours or even days to set up our measurement equipment. But now, everything can be done in a matter of minutes. With a clear data overview and multiple export formats, our work has become much more efficient. We greatly appreciate the almost instant support and assistance provided by Dewesoft. Any special requests or suggestions are addressed in a very short time. Truly, Dewesoft is the ultimate Swiss knife of the measurement world.

It has been a long day, but before going home I wanted to say few things. Thank you from the bottom of my engineer heart and in the name of OneSubsea for what you did today! Yesterday at 10 PM I sent you an email asking for urgent help on a Saturday morning. 30 minutes later you replied you would come. This morning you were 5 people involved in resolving the issue. I have never experienced such customer service! Thanks again, customer service matters a lot to us, and today's response blew me away.

We absolutely enjoy using the Dewesoft data acquisition equipment and its software. I think of it as the Porsche 911 of data acquisition (my dream car/our dream test equipment).
