Product Description:
The DC100 features a large display with a whole range of functions, allowing you to monitor data while storing them in memory. With it’s sophisticated memory, the DC100 offers simple data acquisition and recording in a single device, yet it’s still fully portable and packed with features. No PC needed. No chart paper. No environmental impact. A cost-effective solution to your measurement needs.
Stand-Alone Model:
The DC100 Stand-alone model weighs just 5 kg with the full four I/O modules installed. In addition, since its depth is just 20 cm with modules (10 cm without modules), you can take it anywhere with ease.With its advanced memory functions, the DC100 stand-alone model offers simple data acquisition and recording by combining the functionality of hybrid recorders and PC-based data loggers, yet offers superb portability and mobility, environment-friendly operation without PC or chart paper, and cost-effective, flexible data measurement.
  • Measuring interval: 500 ms/40 channels minimum
  • Number of input channels: 10 to 40 channels. Various I/O modules are directly connected to the main unit.
  • Portable, Compact The DC100 stand-alone model weighs just 5 kg with the full four I/O modules installed. In addition, since its depth is just 20 cm with modules (10 cm without modules), you can take it anywhere with ease. It’s small enough to be placed on the center console box of an automobile … in fact, there’s almost no limit to where you can use it, whether indoors or outdoors.
  • AC V and DC V powered models available.

Expandable Model:
The DC100 expandable model is a next-generation data collector that can evolve to suit changing business needs. Select from the wide range of I/O modules and communication modules and install them yourself — this is true design flexibility. The I/O channels can be expanded and modified according to your needs. This not only allows you to build up a data acquisition and recording system as your application needs grow, but the architecture also requires less initial investment.
  • Measuring interval: 500 ms/300 channels minimum
  • Number of input channels: 10 to 300 channels. Expansion and modification via subunits.
  • Expandability: Up to six subunits can be connected to the main unit. The cable length between the main unit and subunits can be extended up to 500 m.
  • AC V and DC V powered models available.
  • Flexible, Distributed, Remote Data Acquisition and Recording System The DC100 expandable model consists of a main unit, subunits, input/output and communications modules. By connecting the main unit to multiple subunits with the dedicated cable of up to 500 m total length, you can easily configure a recording/data acquisition environment ranging from 10 to 300 channels. Another key feature is its ability to scan up to 300 channels every 500 ms. You can also install one subunit on the back of the main unit of the hybrid recorder.
  • Main Unit (DC100-2) Data are measured by the various input modules installed in the distributed subunits and are acquired and stored into the memory of the main unit. Or, by dividing the memory into multiple data files of specified data lengths or of identical sizes, the measured data can be acquired and stored in a data file while transferring another data file to an external memory device. Furthermore, by connecting a communication module such as the GP-IB, RS-232C, or RS-422A/485 module, data can be transferred in real-time to a PC at the same time as they’re being captured into the DC100 memory.
  • Subunit (DS400 or DS600, for DC100 expandable model) A subunit acts as an interface for connecting the main unit of the DC100 expandable model to one or several input modules. There are two types of subunits, the DS400 which permits connection of up to four input and output modules, and the DS600 which permits connection of up to six input and output modules.

Versatile Memory:
  • The DC100 utilizes long RAM memory (1 MB standard, 2 or 4 MB optional) to provide simplified, low cost, low maintenance, data acquisition and recording without needing a PC, hard disk, paper charts or pens.
  • “Single memory” – using the entire memory as one data file Data acquisition and recording are performed with the entire memory used as a single data file. Simply pressing the START key starts data acquisition and recording until the specified length of data has been recorded.
  • “Repeat memory” – continuous data saving The memory is divided into multiple data files for data acquisition and recording. When the first file becomes full, the next file is selected automatically and used to record data without interruption. There are two ways of dividing the memory.
  • Dividing the entire memory into 2, 4, 8, or 16 files of identical size Example: When dividing into four files
  • Dividing the entire memory arbitrarily by specifying the data length of each file, Example: When making a file of 1 MB
  • “Rotary memory” – automatically deleting and updating the old file When all the divided data files become full, the data file containing the oldest data is automatically updated with new data and data acquisition and recording continue.
  • Continuous data acquisition and recording using external medium
  • When performing data acquisition and recording with the divided memory, a full file of recorded data can be transferred to a floppy disk while data acquisition and recording continues with the next file. The data file which was copied to the floppy disk is then updated and will be used for recording new data.
