The DATS-tetrad is a rugged, portable data acquisition system that supports up to 32 high speed analog inputs and can be stacked for higher channel counts. Many sensor input options are available including microphones, accelerometers, strain gauges, thermocouples, load/pressure/force sensors, tachometers, rotary encoders, digital I/O and CAN-bus. Analog output and digital output are available with options for open and closed loop control. The system has an internal GPS receiver.

Communication is via WiFi, Ethernet or USB and the unit can be powered from mains, vehicle or its internal battery power. A built-in processor and solid state storage provide standalone capability. The system can also be connected to a laptop or PC for real time monitoring and data capture via any of the communication interfaces.

The DATS-tetrad provides the versatility of a standalone, classical front end or can be configured in a distributed setup from 4 to over 1000 channels.
