Data Translation Announces New Low-Cost Sound & Vibration DAQ Module

All Data Translation devices include comprehensive driver and software support, and interface tools for LabVIEW™ and MATLAB® programm

Marlboro, MA ─ March 21, 2013 ─ Data Translation, Inc., an industry leader in data acquisition, today announced the release of the DT9839 low-cost USB-powered module for sound and vibration measurements.


The DT9839 features a four-channel, 16-bit Delta-Sigma analog-to-digital converter (ADC) with a nominal input range of 2.5 V, and sampling rates up to 52.7 kHz per channel. Applications that require accelerometer, vibration, noise, or sonar measurements often use IEPE sensors. IEPE conditioning is built-in to the analog circuitry of the DT9839, providing an excitation current source and AC or DC coupling.

QuickDAQ 2013, ready-to-measure application software, is included with the DT9839 and allows you to acquire, analyze, and display data. VIBpoint Framework is available as a 14-day trial and adds a host of processing features, including single- and two-channel FFT operations and dynamic performance statistics. Additionally, all Data Translation devices include comprehensive driver and software support, and interface tools for LabVIEW™ and MATLAB® programmers.

Pricing and Availability
The DT9839 is priced at $995 USD*and is available now.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
