The P8020 is a mobile, rugged 24-bit data acquisition system. The P8020 can be configured with up to 5 I/O cards. This enables it to support up to 40 high speed analog inputs plus two digital tachos. Alternatively, cards can be combined to provide support for various input options. These include high speed analog, thermocouple, strain gauge, precision tachometer measurement, CAN-bus, GPS and analog output. P8020 units can be stacked to expand the system up to 120 channels.
