The ADI40 extends the versatility of the Precision Power Analyzers (PPA3500, PPA4500, and PPA5500), collecting a multitude of DC measurements and streaming the data digitally to the Power Analyzer. Featuring 4x, 8x, 12x or 16x direct thermocouple inputs (type J or type k), 4x, 8x, 12x or 16x analog DC inputs and 20x analog DC outputs. Analog outputs can be mapped to any PPA measured parameter, as well as the analog/thermocouple inputs.
Typical applications include system integration where multiple power/sensor parameters must be analyzed within one central measurement system, bringing together external sensors and primary power measurements from the PPA3500, PPA4500/PPA5500. This data is available via the command line (through the intuitive "MUTILOG” command, see PPA comms manual for more details) or sent out as a DC voltage level to one of the 20x outputs on the ADI40 to chart recorders or similar devices.
