Based on SIRIUS Data Acquisition Technology

R4 is a compact data acquisition system build around SIRIUS DAQ technology. Systems feature 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. 

R4 chassis can hold up to 4 SIRIUS DAQ slices with a total of 64 analog channels, 32 counter/encoder channel, 96 digital channels and up to 4 high speed CAN bus ports. An array of different amplifiers are available to acquire signals from virtually any senors.

High Channel Count in a Compact Chassis Design

R4 data acquisition system can be configured with up to:

  • 64 analog channels, 
  • 32 counter/encoder channels,
  • 92 digital channels,
  • 4 CAN bus input channels and
  • 32 analog output channels

All this in one compact and rugged chassis design. Multiple R4 data acquisition systems can furtherly be connected into TCP/IP network and synchronized together to extend the channel count to thousands of channels. Similarly, like any other Dewesoft DAQ systems, R4 can be extended and synchronized with other data acquisition instruments.

Integrated Powerful Computer

R4 DAQ systems can be configured with built-in SBOX  computer. SBOX is powerful data processing computer and highly reliable SSD data logger. It is equipped with Intel Core i7 CPU, 4 GB of memory and fast SSD storage. This provides a highly reliable data logging unit and enough processing power for storing and processing data from thousands of channels.

The R4 SBOX computer is equipped with all the modern interfaces for connectivity and expansion:

  • Network interfaces: 2x GLAN, 1x WLAN.
  • USB 3.0: 4x USB 3.0 ports for data acquisition devices like SIRIUSDEWE-43A, and peripherals like mouse, keyboard, printers and external hard drives.
  • EtherCAT master port: for connecting any of our EtherCAT data acquisition devices like KRYPTON or SIRIUS.
  • HDMI video: for connecting an external display.
  • GPS receiver: optional built-in 10 Hz or 100 Hz GPS receiver with an option to connect external GPS display.

 

Analog and Real-time Data Output

R4 data acquisition system can optionally be configured with up to 32 analog output channels. These output channels can function in any of the following modes:

  • standalone digital signal amplifier,
  • multi-channel function generator for modal/shaker control - software upgrade option required,
  • control channels or
  • a replay of the analog data.


To learn more about SIRIUS analog output functionality please visit the SIRIUS DAQ system page for the detailed description of individual modes. 

Require a real-time data output?

Don't worry we have you covered. R4rt DAQ system additionally includes a real-time EtherCAT® bus and can feed reduced data to any 3rd party EtherCAT master for real-time control. This makes R4rt DAQ system a unique solution on the market. To learn more about this functionality please visit R8rt DAQ system page.

EtherCAT Expansion

R4 DAQ system is equipped with 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 port includes built-in hardware synchronization hub for synchronization of all the connected EtherCAT DAQ channels with internal R4 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.

R4-HUB DAQ System with USB Data Output

If you would prefer to connect the R4 data acquisition system to your existing PC setup, we offer an R4-HUB data acquisition system which instead of built-in SBOX computer includes a USB hub. The R4-HUB DAQ system can be connected with included USB 2.0 cable to any PC with USB port for storing, visualizing and analyzing the data from R4 analog channels. 

The R4-HUB DAQ system also includes some additional extension ports like USB and two synchronization ports, which allow the R4-HUB DAQ system to be easily extended by additional data acquisition devices like SIRIUS modular DAQ slices.

Built-in GPS/GNSS and RTK Positioning

R4 instruments can be configured with optional 10 Hz or 100 Hz GPS receiver with optional Real-Time Kinematics (RTK) support for the most demanding and precise (down to 1cm) position-based test and measurement applications.

GPS and RTK option will transform the R4 system into a powerful automotive data logger for the advanced position based test and measurement applications like pass-by-noise, vehicle dynamics, brake testing, road load data, ADAS, etc.

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