System 8000 from Micro-Measurements is a versatile, precision data acquisition instrument system intended for static and dynamic test and measurement applications.

The system includes a scanner with 8 channels of data acquisition. A 10’ crossover Ethernet cable is also included. The scanners may be used separately or up to 16 scanners can be used concurrently for a maximum of 128 channels.

Each channel can be configured, via software, to accept signals from strain gages (strain gauges) or strain-gage-based transducers, thermocouples, or high level voltage sensors. Strain gage (strain gauge) channels accept full-, half-, or quarter-bridge configurations and have the required bridge completion components for 120-, 350-, and 1000- ohm bridges. Each scanner operates independently; multiple scanners are not synchronized.

The data is processed in a modern 24-bit digital signal processor and filtering is performed using Finite Impulse Response (FIR), multi-stage filters. This provides excellent noise rejection and stability and unsurpassed measurement accuracy.

The Model 8000-8-SM Scanner communicates with a host personal computer (PC) via an Ethernet connection. Micro-Measurements StrainSmart® software is optimal for configuring, controlling, and acquiring data from the System 8000. A Programmer’s Reference Kit provides documentation, programming examples, and instrument drivers to assist with custom software development.
