THE DECAQ

Integrated solutions for larger measurement landscapes

DECAQ systems provide measurement solutions that address both standard and complex
multi-channel tasks. Using the same stable modular platform for high-quality signal conditioning,
the compact DECAQ can contain up to 192 channels in a single chassis.

Robust Mechanics

From portable measurements to industrial-scale laboratory applications, system features such as high channel density, high dynamic range, low noise performance and distortion, accurate synchronization and integrated data capture and analysis guarantee peace of mind during product development, prototyping and troubleshooting.

ROBUST DESIGN

Designed to withstand fluctuations in technology, the DECAQ’s robust design keeps it ahead of the game. Machined from aluminium, the DECAQ can withstand shock and vibration while operating in environmental temperatures from -40 °C up to
+55 °C, depending on system configuration.

CONDUCTION COOLED

Internal conduction cooling ensures no dusty air circulates within the chassis. Some chassis may never require fan cooling while others contain fans which only need to operate under high temperatures. In all cases fans can be switched off during sensitive acoustic measurements.

REAL TIME OPERATING

Notwithstanding the system’s integrated software with playback capability, the DECAQ also makes use of a professional real time operating system, namely Windriver’s VxWorks®, on all its System Controllers. This ensures fast, logical and safe decisions when operating as a standalone unit.

RACK MOUNTED SYSTEMS

DECAQ systems can also be housed in compact, machined aluminium Rack Mounting Kits. Chassis are recessed in each Mounting Kit to ensure all cables are contained behind the rack’s front face.

Modular Signal Conditioning

All modular signal conditioning channels (QModules) are designed to be readily interchangeable. Each QModule is optimized for a specific task while some combine different functions in one Module.

Our QModules are continuously under development to accommodate new features and the latest technologies. As our standards-based concept is extremely sustainable, ensuring QModules stay compatible with any of our QuantusSeries systems. As the same stable modular platform is used, QModules can be acquired and used whenever the need arises.

  • Measure parameters such as voltage, vibration, acceleration,
    pulse-period, sound, strain, force, pressure, displacement and temperature
  • Output analog voltages
  • Interface with GPS, IRIG, CAN and FlexRay™

Longevity of Investment

Since 1984, our instruments have led in longevity of investment. Forward thinking design (such as incorporating the VME and now the PCIe, PoE and PTP IEEE 1588-2008 standards) has allowed the same system to successfully incorporate changes in technology while maintaining a sustainable foundation.

Through high-quality signal conditioning modularity between and within systems, as well as the capability to synchronize DECAQ systems and other PTP-capable systems (including our smaller MICROQ systems), DECAQ ensures a measurement solution well worth the investment.
