SIRIUS Data Acquisition Technology

R1DB/R2DB are all-in-one data acquisition systems build around SIRIUS DAQ technology. Both feature the same 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

R2DB, R2, and R2-HUB chassis can hold up to two SIRIUS DAQ slices. That means a maximum of 32 analog channels, 16 counter/encoder channels, 48 digital channels, and 2 high-speed CAN bus ports.

R1DB chassis can hold up to one SIRIUS DAQ slice. That's half of the total R2DB channels. A wide variety of different amplifiers are available for virtually any signal and sensor.

B for Built-in
Battery Power

SIRIUS R1DB and R2DB DAQ systems have built-in Li-Ion batteries that enable them to run fully-operational without any external power supply.

R1DB internal battery capacity is 144 Wh (2 Li-Ion cells with 72 Wh), while R2DB's battery capacity is 190 Wh (2 Li-Ion cells with 95 Wh).

Batteries are hot-swappable, meaning you can exchange them even during your measurements without the need of shutting down the system and interrupting your test.

EtherCAT Slave Expansion Port

R1DB and R2 data acquisition systems are equipped with an EtherCAT slave port which can be used to expand and distribute additional DAQ channels with any of our EtherCAT-based units like SIRIUSKRYPTON, or IOLITE.

EtherCAT port includes a built-in hardware synchronization hub for synchronization of all the connected EtherCAT DAQ channels with internal R1DB/R2DB DAQ channels. Only one cable is needed to daisy chain the units. The single cable runs data, synchronization, and power to all extended EtherCAT devices.

R1DB
Portable Data Acquisition System

R1DB DAQ system is a smaller, even more compact version of the R2DB data acquisition system. It features the same multi-touch LED screen, powerful data processing computer, and SSD data logger with internal hot-swappable batteries for maximum portability.

Unlike R2DB which can fit two SIRIUS DAQ slices, the R1DB can fit one. That is up to 16 analog inputs, 8 counter/encoder inputs, 24 digital inputs, and 1 high-speed CAN input.

R2
Data Acquisition System

R2 is the "stripped-down" version of the R2DB DAQ system. It offers the same 2 slots for installing up to two SIRIUS DAQ slices. 

Unlike R2DB, the R2 does not include an LCD touch-screen display and has no internal Li-Ion batteries. 

The R2 DAQ system has a built-in high-performance SBOX processing computer. It features an Intel Core i3 computer (optional Core i7), 8 GB RAM (can be upgraded to 32 GB), and an internal 500GB SSD drive (optional 1TB).

R2-HUB
Data Acquisition System

If you would prefer to connect the R2 data acquisition system to your existing PC setup, we offer an R2-HUB data acquisition system which instead of a built-in SBOX computer includes a USB hub. The R2-HUB DAQ system can be connected with the included USB 2.0 cable to any external PC with a USB port for storing, visualizing, and analyzing the data from the R2 system.

The R2-HUB DAQ system also includes some additional extension ports like USB and two synchronization ports, which allow the R2-HUB DAQ system to be easily extended by additional data acquisition devices like SIRIUS modular DAQ slices.

FAQ

What kind of sensors can I connect to R1DB/R2DB/R2 data acquisition systems?

DAQ systems can be equipped with a variety of different input amplifiers. You can connect almost any sensor and can condition almost any signal. Voltage, high-voltage, IEPE, charge, strain gage based sensors (quarter-bridge, half-bridge, and full-bridge), load cells, thermocouple, RTD, LVDT, current. You can check the technical specifications page for the full list of different amplifiers available.

What is 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 A/D converter. 

With R1DB/R2DB, each input 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 hardware achieves more than 130 dB signal to noise ratio and more than 160 dB in dynamic range. This is 20 times better than standard 24-bit data acquisition systems and 20 times less noise.

What sampling rate does R1DB/R2DB DAQ system offer?

R1DB/R2DB data acquisition devices offer three types of signal conditioners that offer different sampling rates:

  • SIRIUS DualCoreADC® signal conditioners: 8 analog input channels per SIRIUS slice with a 200 kHz sampling rate per channel. Uses dual 24-bit Sigma-delta ADC's per input channel.
  • SIRIUS HD (High Density) signal conditioners: 16 analog input channels per SIRIUS slice with a 200 kHz sampling rate per channel. Uses single 24-bit Sigma-delta ADC per input channel.
  • SIRIUS HS (High Speed) signal conditioners: 8 analog input channel per SIRIUS slice with 1 MHz sampling rate per channel. Uses single 16-but SAR ADC per input channel. 

Are the R2 DAQ instruments providing galvanic electrical isolation?

Yes. All SIRIUS DAQ systems feature a high galvanic channel-to-channel, channel-to-ground isolation (±1000 V). They even include isolated sensor excitation. You can learn more about SIRIUS galvanic isolation in this video.

Do Dewesoft DAQ systems really come with 7 year warranty?

The Dewesoft 7-Year warranty applies to all our data acquisition systems. You buy it, own it, use it, and our warranty keeps you covered. We build our equipment to last. We guarantee you that your hardware will be free from defects and functional. Our warranty covers that the instruments function as promised for a period of 7 years from the day of the delivery.

 

Do Dewesoft DAQ systems really include free software?

Yes! All Dewesoft data acquisition systems include DewesoftX Professional software for free with no extra charge.
DewesoftX Professional includes advanced features for data storing, visualization, export, and also includes an extensive math library for signal processing.

 

Do Dewesoft DAQ systems really include lifetime free software updates?

Yes. All the updates to our software are free forever. We release a new major version every two months. All the performance updates, new features and bugfixes are avialable for free to all existing Dewesoft users by simply download our installer from the website.
