Affordable and Capable

When you need a universal data acquisition system with built-in data processing computer, an SSD data logger with stellar specifications, and yet with a budget-friendly price tag, MINITAURs will not let you down. 

But don’t get confused by a great price. The build quality is not compromised. MINITAURs is a rugged, compact, mobile DAQ system with cutting-edge signal conditioning. 8 universal analog inputs with dual sigma-delta ADC's, 200 kHz sampling rate per channel and 160 dB dynamic range. 8 counter/encoder inputs equipped with SuperCounter technology. 24 digital inputs and 2 high speed CAN ports.

It is an ideal solution for various automotive and mobile data acquisition applications. It will help you solve most demanding test and measurement challenges.

Intuitive to Use

Using MINITAURs does not require any complex configuration setups or programming. Just connect any kind of display (check our rugged displays​​​​​​​) and you are ready to start.

With plug and play functionality, smart sensors, and advanced TEDS support making measurements with MINITAURs is easier than riding a bike. You will get it right the first time and you will be ready to measure in no time.

Getting precise and graphically rich results is as easy as ever. Just drag and drop one of the many flexible visual displays and connect them to your channels. Voila! It works like magic.

Precise Counter and Encoder Measurement

MINITAURs utilizes our patented technology called SUPERCOUNTER in every of its eight counter/encoder inputs. 

Counter inputs can measure 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 sampling rate.

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

Synchronization

MINITAURs has different inputs such as analog, CAN, counter, encoder and digital. But it doesn’t stop there. With the power of included Dewesoft X software, you can easily acquire data from additional interfaces like GPS, Ethernet, Serial, PCM telemetry, and more. 

Even though each data source can have different sampling rates, all your data will be perfectly synchronized down to few milliseconds. 

Synchronized video can be added for free. Dewesoft includes powerful video engine and has support for simple DirectX web cameras, high-speed video cameras that are fully synced to analog data, and also 3rd party thermal cameras.

Expandable

It is very easy to extend the channel count on MINITAURs DAQ system. Any of Dewesoft USB data acquisition system like SIRIUS DAQ system or DEWE-43A DAQ system can be connected into one of the six MINITAURs USB ports for additional analog, counter, encoder and/or CAN channels.

MINITAURs also features built-in EtherCAT slave port which allows for easy connection of our EtherCAT devices like KRYPTON or SIRIUS.

Additional devices will be detected automatically and ready to use immediately without any complex configurations. You will never notice you are working with multiple devices. The system will act as one.

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 the 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.
