Main Features

  • DAQ AND CONTROL: R8rt instrument is an upgrade of the R8 DAQ system. It uses same DAQ technology, data logging, and data processing capabilities, but includes an additional EtherCAT slave port that can send the real-time data feed to any 3rd party EtherCAT master controller. 
  • DUAL MODE: EtherCAT slave interface can be used to provide real-time data to a 3rd party control system while the Internal bus allows full-speed data recording to Dewesoft X software in parallel, serving both worlds of data acquisition and control which have been so far separated.
  • HIGH-END SIGNAL CONDITIONING: R8 data acquisition systems are built around SIRIUS DAQ technology and feature the same versatile and powerful amplifiers for world-leading signal conditioning. Visit SIRIUS product page for detailed SIRIUS DAQ technology overview.
  • ALL-IN-ONE INSTRUMENT: R8 instruments are high channel count, standalone DAQ systems with a built-in powerful data processing computer and SSD data logging capabilities. 
  • UP TO 128 ANALOG INPUTS: Systems can be configured with up to eight SIRIUS DAQ slices for a total of 128 analog inputs for virtually any sensor.
  • UP TO 64 COUNTER/ENCODER INPUTS: R8 DAQ system can be configured with up to 16 counter/encoder or 192 digital input channels, all equipped with our patented SUPERCOUNTER® technology. 
  • ETHERCAT MASTER PORT: R8 DAQ systems include EtherCAT master port with built-in synchronization for easy connection and extension of any of our EtherCAT based DAQ system like KRYPTON DAQ modules or SIRIUSe DAQ system.
  • ALL INTERFACES: Interfaces for Wireless LAN, dual GLAN, 4x USB 3.0, GPS, HDMI, 2x synchronization are available.
  • 100 Hz GPS WITH RTK: Optional 10Hz or 100Hz GPS receiver with additional RTK support can be built straight into R8rt DAQ system.
  • SOFTWARE INCLUDED WITH FREE LIFETIME UPGRADES: Easy to use, yet very robust in functionality, award-winning DEWESoft X3 software is included. The software comes with lifetime free upgrades and no hidden costs, bringing you intuitive configuration, smart sensors, advanced storage and analysis capabilities.

Best of Both Worlds

R8rt is the new member of R8 DAQ systems. It features the same DAQ technologies as the R8 DAQ system: high-end signal conditioning, built-in SSD data logging, and data processing capabilities.

R8rt utilizes an additional EtherCAT slave port which enables R8rt to do two things at the same time:

  1. acquire, store, and process data from virtually any sensor with its high-end signal conditioning hardware to an internal computer with solid state drive

  2. send the real-time data feed through additional EtherCAT slave port to any 3rd party EtherCAT master, completely bypassing built-in SBOX computer.




Small Upgrade, Big Win

Traditionally you had to purchase and configure additional control system I/O's to bring data from analog sensors to test bench controllers.

With R8rt this is done faster, cheaper, and also much more accurate. You can feed the data in real-time over EtherCAT to the controller, completely removing the need for traditional control system I/O's and clumsy analog cabling.

This solution is unique on the market and will bring improvements to your test routines. Slide right to see why this solution will save you time and money!

1. Save Money

R8rt is an all-in-one data acquisition system with all the bells and whistles of the R8 DAQ system with additional ability to send the real-time data feed to the controller. This allows the same instrument to be used in two different scenarios:

  • DAQ system for vehicle road load data acquisition on proving ground and
  • use on the test bench like MTS road simulator


Thanks to the EtherCAT real-time interface, no analog input stage is needed on a 3rd party controller. This means no additional analog I/O hardware and much much fewer cables.

2. Save Time

R8rt removes the clumsy and time-consuming configuration of additional analog I/O's required by test bench controllers. There is only one Ethernet cable connecting R8rt and real time controller.

Included Dewesoft X DAQ software can send EtherCAT configuration to the controller with a single click. This is not just fast and easy but also greatly reduces human errors.

3. Improved Signal Quality

As previously mentioned, R8rt includes high-end signal conditioning amplifiers based on world-class SIRIUS DAQ technology.

This means that perfectly conditioned signals are transmitted to the test bench controller digitally via single EtherCAT controller instead of in the old analog way. This removes the chance of caching noise and other unwanted frequencies. 

DEWESoft Dual Mode

R8rt and SIRIUS DAQ system include USB and EtherCAT slave data interface. EtherCAT interface is used to provide real-time data to a 3rd party control system and USB for full-speed data recording to an internal computer using Dewesoft X software in parallel.

We call this capability Dual Mode and it makes our instruments unique. They can be used in the control loop and as a DAQ recording device at the same time, saving enormous cost for the customer and providing detailed insight into the process data.

Typical DEWESoft Dual Mode applications include:

  • Analog-to-EtherCAT interface on a test bench with 3rd party EtherCAT master and DAQ device for recording the data in DEWESoft X software.
  • Analog-to-EtherCAT interface in a PLC configuration and condition monitoring device with the high-frequency dynamic analysis in DEWESoft X software.

SIRIUS Technology

R8rt is a high channel count, all-in-one data acquisition system build around SIRIUS DAQ technology. The system features DualCoreADC® analog inputs with 160 dB dynamic range and acquisition speeds of 200 kHz per channel or optional high-speed amplifiers with speeds up to 1 MHz per channel. 

R8 chassis can hold up to 8 SIRIUS DAQ slices with the total of 128 analog channels, 64 counter/encoder channel, 192 digital channels and up to 8 high speed CAN bus ports. An array of different amplifiers are available for virtually any signal and sensor. 

Learn more about SIRIUS DAQ system.


EtherCAT Expansion

The R8rt instrument is also equipped with an EtherCAT master port which can be used to expand and distribute additional DAQ channels with any of our EtherCAT based DAQ units like SIRIUS and/or KRYPTON.

EtherCAT master port is equipped with hardware synchronization hub to synchronize all connected EtherCAT DAQ channels with internal R8rt DAQ channels. 


GPS/GNSS and RTK Positioning

SBOX computer inside R8 instruments can be configured with optional 10 Hz or 100 Hz GPS receiver with optional Real-Time Kinematics (RTK) support for the most precise (down to 1cm) position-based test and measurement applications.

GPS and RTK option will transform R8 system into powerful automotive data logger for an advanced position based test and measurement applications like pass-by-noise, vehicle dynamics, brake testing, road load data, ADAS, and more.

For more information about position measurement also see GPS and IMU devices and GPS PRO training course.
