Selecting a data acquisition platform for electronics or mechatronics applications has always been a balancing act. High speed digitizers lack the isolation, attenuation, or bit resolution necessary for power electronics testing. PC-based platforms with fast streaming throughput sacrifice noise immunity, signal conditioning, and hardware integrity. Until now. The new Yokogawa SL1000 is the only data acquisition system that delivers independent, isolated channel hardware at 100MS/ch rates, with no compromise in bit resolution, memory depth, or streaming performance.
