Keysight releases new DAQ system

30 January 2019 Test & Measurement

The DAQ970A data acquisition system (DAQ) has been released by Keysight Technologies to speed test development times with rapid measurement and scan rates, expanded measurement types and ranges, as well as simple test sequence automation.

Increasing product design complexity necessitates new and challenging test requirements. The DAQ970A leverages the company’s BenchVue DAQ application software to facilitate rapid creation of automated tests, instrument control to set parameters and status alerts, and simple analysis of measurement results.

Embedded test flow capabilities automate DAQ setups and measurements into test sequences, while a new, intuitive graphical front panel display offers self-guiding menus that enable test engineers to quickly perform all tasks directly from the instrument.

The instrument achieves up to 5000 readings/sec and scan rates up to 450 channels/sec. It focuses on improved measurement accuracy via an advanced 6 ½ digit internal digital multimeter and auto-calibration that compensates for internal drifts caused by time and temperature changes.

Comprehensive testing of a greater number of designs is possible, with expanded measurement capabilities and ranges for voltage (300 V), current (1 μA d.c., 100 μA a.c.), resistance (1000 MΩ), diode and capacitance (1 nF – 100 μF).

Multiple format displays (number, bar, meter, trend chart and histogram) are possible to easily monitor measurement results.

A new solid-state switching multiplexer module provides faster scanning rates and longer lifespan than multiplexers with mechanical relays.
