daqNet: A Better Way to Build a Data Acquisition System
With the release of the daqNet, GE Fanuc Embedded Systems has advanced the state of the art on all frontsgreater fidelity and accuracy of acquired data, improved channel density, a bus architecture which relies on the ubiquitous Ethernet standard, and, most importantly, simplified system integration. daqNet is a 1U, network attached, data acquisition server supporting up to 192 channels of analog input. A complete sub-system, the daqNet comes complete with its own chassis and integrated power supply, with configuration information and acquired data being sent via a dual redundant Gbit Ethernet link. Configuration options allow for many combinations of analog and/or digital I/O, making it a suitable choice for a wide variety of sonar, test and measurement, and other acoustic applications.
