The Astro-Med Dash 16U Signal Conditioner and Data Acquisition Recorder features 16 channels with universal inputs, signal conditioning, real-time data display, real-time chart recording and built-in data acquisition - all in one compact, rugged case.

 

High Frequency Response

Each channel in the Dash 16u has a separate A/D converter sampling at 200 kHz. Imagine – you’ll never have to worry about missing important data again!

 

Real-time Monitor

The Dash 16u features a 10.4-inch color display for realtime and post capture viewing of waveform data. The display can be run in place or in parallel with the chart, saving paper during setup and recording.

 

High Speed Memory

The Dash 16u has 16 Megabytes of memory for capturing important data. Sample rates are adjustable from 0.2 to 200,000 samples per second, ideal for transient capture as well as long-term trending.


ZIP Drive

With the integral 100 Megabyte ZIP drive you can easily upgrade software, transfer data for archive, and save complete setups.


Isolated, Universal Inputs

The Dash 16u inputs are truly universal, letting you connect almost any signal – voltage to temperature to pressure and strain – without external conditioning. Each channel is electrically isolated, eliminating crosstalk.
