SLICE Data Control Module

The Data Collection System was originally developed to be mounted in the chest cavity of a crash test dummy, called Data Collection for Dummies (D4D).  It recorded crash test data from a plethora of sensors without a huge bundle of wires.  The new DCS is high precision instrument, with 16 bit differential inputs collected at 40,000 samples per second.  It is built as a modular assembly of data acquisition modules (slices), controlled by a single control module.  A built-in GPS receiver provides precise time synchronization.  It has been extensively tested by an ARMY laboratory, and was found to be equal or superior to laboratory data collection systems that occupy an entire equipment rack.  The DCS is unsurpassed for field test data collection. What once required an entire van full of signal conditioning equipment can now be replaced by one small box that fits comfortably inside a lady’s handbag.

Although the DCS can be powered externally, it includes an internal rechargeable battery pack and internal storage. It will run continuously on the internal batteries for 45 minutes with five INST-45 Data Acquisition Modules (DAMs) connected. The on-board storage can store 5 minutes of data from 5 INST-45 DAMs at 40,000 samples per second with 16 bit resolution.

The Slice Data Control Module (DCM) is used to power, control, and store data from attached Data Acquisition Modules (DAMs) INST-45, sold separately.  As few as one and as many as eight DAMs can be stacked together and controlled by a single Data Control Module.  For maximum flexibility, the gain, offset, and sample rate of all 24 channels of each slice are software controlled. The DCS can be programmed and the stored data read via an Ethernet link.  Over 5 minutes of data can be stored. Data can also be transmitted, in real time as it is digitized, though the Ethernet link.
