The Familiar DAQ With Completely Redesigned Heart

The new SIRIUS XHS looks the same on the outside, but on the inside, it is a completely new beast. Everything is new and designed from scratch to face the future of the high-speed data acquisition systems:

  • Newly developed Hybrid ADC technology converter technology is being able to operate at 15 MS/s.
  • New amplifiers that follow the capability of the new Hybrid ADC technology.
  • We have a new, much more powerful FPGA with an ARM processor running the Linux operating system.
  • Even better galvanic isolation technology for channel-to-channel and channel-to-ground isolation.
  • New USB 3 and GLAN data interfaces to support huge data sampling speeds.
  • PTPv2 synchronization technology.

We have been developing SIRIUS XHS high-speed data acquisition system for the last 5 years and the results are astonishing. We simply love how the technology supersedes even our expectations and the future of data acquisition.

Hybrid ADC
Signal Conditioning Technology

Which ADC converter is better? SAR ADC or Delta-sigma ADC? Well, now it doesn't matter anymore. SIRIUS XHS introduces Hybrid ADC technology. It allows users to select modes of operation for each analog input channel:

  1. High bandwidth mode: 5 MHz bandwidth and 15 Ms/s sampling rate, SIRIUS XHS can perfectly acquire impulse, step, and square signals without any ringing or overshoot. Such a mode is perfect for transient recording and power analysis. Such acquisition mode is typically found in SAR ADCs.
  2. High dynamic alias-free mode: up to 1 Ms/s data can be acquired up to 150 dB dynamic range. This alias-free filter with a bandwidth close to the Nyquist criteria is used for frequency domain analysis of the signal like sound and vibration. This behavior is similar to classical Sigma-Delta ADCs.


By today's standard, you would need two totally separate DAQ devices for the measurements mentioned above. The SIRIUS XHS DAQ system allows you to select the sampling rate independently per channel, ensuring that all measurements fit the application. All modes are available in one device, also in parallel acquiring two channels at different rates completely synchronous to each other.

Hybrid ADCSignal Conditioning Technology

Signal Amplifiers
High-End Signal Conditioning

The input channel configuration can be freely configured with one of the following signal amplifiers: 

  • SIRIUS XHS-HV: Highly isolated CATII 1000V amplifier. Measure in a range of 20 V to 2000 V peak directly. 5 MHz bandwidth. 0.03% accuracy. This amplifier is perfect for the direct connection of high voltage signals.
  • SIRIUS XHS-LV: Highly isolated voltage input amplifier. Measure in a range of 0.05 V to 100V. 5 MHz bandwidth. 0.03% accuracy. It offers sensors excitation. This amplifier is perfect for a direct connection of low voltage signals and current transducers.
  • SIRIUS XHS-ACC: Highly isolated IEPE/ICP and voltage input amplifier. Offers 2 mA - 20 mA IEPE excitation current. and offers TEDS support and high-temperature stability.

Noise floor, common-mode rejection, gain and offset drifts at lower sampling rates are comparable to the SIRIUS DualCoreADC amplifiers. SIRIUS XHS amplifiers are perfect for high-speed data acquisition, transient recording, e-mobility measurements,  and power analysis where the highest precision is an absolute necessity.

Signal AmplifiersHigh-End Signal Conditioning

PTP Synchronisation
Perfect Data Synchronization

If you combine channels from Sigma-Delta and SAR ADCs (high-bandwidth and alias-free), channels are delayed due to the sigma-delta filtering group delay. With the SIRIUS XHS, both modes are perfectly aligned and synchronized, due to the nature and design of the chosen filtering.

Multiple SIRIUS XHS devices can be synchronized with each other using the PTPv2 synchronization methodIRIG, NTP, or PPS signal. This also provides absolute time synchronization using in-house time servers or GPS time.

SIRIUS XHS is also backward compatible and it can be synchronized with any other Dewesoft DAQ devices like standard SIRIUS, KRYPTON, IOLITE, DEWE-43, ...

Galvanic Isolation
​​​​​​​
High Isolation for Worry-Free Measurements

SIRIUS XHS instruments offer high galvanic channel-to-channel and channel-to-ground isolation (±1000 V). They even include an isolated sensor excitation.

With galvanic isolation measuring high voltage potentials are safe and easy. There is no problem with common-mode voltages. It is also safe to do measurements such as vibrations, temperatures, or any other measurement where non-isolated sensors are placed next to a high voltage potential against the DAQ system ground. In such cases, a non-isolated DAQ system would burn or at least yield faulty results. With SIRIUS technology this is just one less detail to worry about.

Digital isolation has another big advantage. It preserves the frequency bandwidth of the amplifiers. SIRIUS XHS provides "worry-free" measurements, less noise, no ground loops, and the best possible signal quality.
