The DEWE2-A series chassis are available with four, seven or 13 slots for our amazing plug-in TRION modules. The DEWE2-A4 is our most portable "all in one" DEWE2 platform, featuring four slots for TRION series I/O cards, and wide ranging DC power input - exactly what you need for in-vehicle testing, noise and vibration, and a wide range of data acquisition applications. The A7 and A13 are based on a larger chassis with a wide aspect display and enormous processing horsepower.

Channel Expansion

Easy and Reliable Channel Expansion
ALL DEWE2 CHASSIS can be expanded easily and reliably, by the addition of one or more F series chassis. Whether you are using the smallest DEWE2 chassis with four TRION slots, or a large rack mounting system with dozens, you can add more channels, and they will all be perfectly synchronized to the main system. Under expansion, all data are transferred to the main unit and stored in the same file. The external chassis behave as if they were physically integrated into the main system.

Here are a few example configurations:
Example: DEWE2-A4 system with two F series expansion chassis connected and synchronized

Example: DEWE2-A7 system with two F series expansion chassis connected and synchronized
Stacks Image 8682
Example: DEWE2-M13 system with an F series expansion chassis connected and synchronized

Synchronization

SYNC it All!
Stacks Image 5127
To create high channel count systems or for distributed measurements DEWE2 instruments sup- port multiple synchronization options. A special feature is the perfectly hardware synchronized video acquisition since also for data analysis the slogan ”a picture is worth a thousand words” is true.

Synchronization of multiple DEWE2 systems via Sync cable
Sync via TRION modules
To use TRION-BASE or TRION-TIMING modules for synchronization of multiple units is the most convenient and easiest way.
Stacks Image 5130
Example: Three instruments synchronized via TRION-TIMING modules (multiple units possible)
Stacks Image 5153
Note: if you don't want to give up a TRION module slot (like in a small system where you need every slot), then we can install the timing electronics right into the chassis itself. But this has to be ordered at the same time as the chassis itself, as this must be installed at the factory when we build the unit.
Stacks Image 5173
Synchronization to GPS or IRIG time-code
There are 2 ways how to synchronize DEWE2 instruments very accurately to absolute time. Both, GPS time and IRIG time, enable execution of synchronized distributed measurements over unlimited distances. Each instrument (or array of instruments) must be connected to the time-code via a TRION-TIMING module.

TRION Modules

TRION modules also provide the TIMING BACKBONE that allows us to record so many disparate data sources in perfect sync with each other. There are TRION cards for a wide variety of analog inputs, as well as digital I/O lines, synchronous counter/encoders, and timing and SYNC interfaces. There are also TRION modules for CAN BUS interfacing.
Simply choose the TRION modules that you want and plug them into your DEWE2 platform. Turn on the system and get to work! TRION cards are identified automatically and configured within the software as soon as you launch it.
