Compact, Portable Vibration Analyzer

SIRIUS mini is a very compact and portable data acquisition system. It is perfect for acoustic, vibration, and rotating machinery analysis. With its four voltage/IEPE analog inputs, it can acquire data from four IEPE accelerometers, microphones, or voltage sensors. 

Additional counter/encoder/digital input adds the ability to connect any counter/encoder sensor and measure RPM, angle, and frequency on rotating parts.

Combined with vibration data you can perfectly use SIRIUS mini as a vibration analyzer for preventive maintenance or any other testing task.

Based on SIRIUS DAQ Technology

SIRIUS mini is built around SIRIUS DAQ technology​​​​​​​ and includes the same powerful technologies:

  • DualCoreADC® technology - amplifiers with DualCoreADC® technology include dual 24-bit ADC's with 200 kS/s/ch sampling rate and achieve astonishing 160 dB dynamic range in time and frequency domain. This is ideal for dynamic measurement and analysis. See the video.
  • SuperCounter® technology - this technology provides precise and synchronized analog angle and frequency measurement from digital counters. This serves as the basis for order tracking analysis, torsional vibration, and similar applications. See the video.


Visit the SIRIUS data acquisition system page for more information. Please note that all amplifiers on SIRIUS mini are differential.

Based on SIRIUS DAQ Technology

DualCoreADC Technology

The DualCoreADC® technology solves often faced problems with signal measurement - input overload, noise, and artificial frequencies in the signal caused by aliasing. The input signal can be higher than expected (out-of-range) and therefore clipped by the ADC. This will result in an incorrect measurement and you will have to repeat the test all over again.

DualCoreADC technology prevents these problems. Each channel amplifier has two ADC's that always measure the high and low gain of the input signal. This results in the full possible measuring range of the sensor and prevents the signal from being clipped. 

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

DualCoreADC Technology

Precise Counter and Encoder Measurement

SIRIUS DAQ systems utilize a patented technology called SuperCounter®. The technology is available in every of its digital counter inputs.

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), SuperCounters are able to extract the 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 SuperCounters work on a 102.4 MHz time base, independent from 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.

For more information on our SuperCounters inputs please navigate to Digital Counter PRO training course.

IEPE Sensor Check

SIRIUS with ACC input amplifiers for Voltage and IEPE sensors have a LED ring around the connector. When an IEPE sensor is connected, SIRIUS will constantly check the current flow to the sensor and will turn the LED bright green or bright red, depending on if the sensor's impedance is okay.

With this LED indicator you have immediate visual feedback if all your IEPE sensors or the sensor wiring is correct. This is just another small but very useful detail that makes your life as a test engineer a little bit easier.

IEPE Sensor Check

USB Powered

SIRIUS mini does not require any clumsy power supplies or adapters. Simply plug it into your PC laptop computer, connect the USB cable, and SIRIUS mini will receive power via USB cable. Once connected you are ready to start measuring.

There is enough power to fully power the device and also enough power to provide excitation to connected IEPE sensors like accelerometers and microphones.

SIRIUS mini shipped bundled with two USB cables. One cable is used for data transfer while the other for powering the device.

Take It Anywhere - Maximum Portability

SIRIUS mini is so small and light that you can easily fit it into a laptop bag or backpack. It only weighs 0,75 kg (1.6 pounds) with dimension of 146 x 139 x 64 mm (5.75 x 5.47 x 2.52 inch).

But it is not only small and light. SIRIUS mini is also built to last. It features aluminum chassis which is CNC milled out of a single aluminum block.

The chassis and electronics were thoughtfully tested inside our state-of-the-art testing labs. SIRIUS mini has been tested for vibration on the shaker table and impact test machine so that you will be able to work without worries, no matter the environment you are testing in.
