When a famous physical measurement institute approached D‑TACQ with a custom requirement, we were able to respond with a timely and cost-effective solution. In an experiment into the Josephson Effect, the customer requirement calls for a multi-channel AWG and multi-channel high gain, high-quality simultaneous digitizer. The basic requirement can be met using a standard ACQ2106 DAQ appliance fitted with AO424ELF-32 - 32 channel simultaneous DAC and ACQ425ELF-16-1000-18, 16-channel high quality simultaneous ADC. But the requirement also called for a fully differential system, ie the external plant is entirely floating. Now differential inputs are standard on most of the D‑TACQ range, but by default all our Analog Output modules are single ended.
The solution developed by D‑TACQ is as follows:
Unit is fully controlled by internal EPICS IOC and supports live scope displays using the free, portable cs-studio.
Unit may be remotely controlled using simple TCP/IP command/response, and a comprehensive Python API is provided as source code.
The Double Depth box concept provides a very cost-effective platform for custom signal conditioning. D‑TACQ welcomes requests for custom signal conditioning, we can provide cost-effective solutions in low quantities.
