xSense is a fully digital solution for acquiring data from any sensor with voltage output. It offers an affordable and flexible solution for field/remote acquisition of data from environmental sensors or any other sensor with voltage output required for proper structural health monitoring. xSense is designed for applications in harsh environments and small places. Size, weight, and cabling are critical design requirements in almost any installation. By taking advantage of the extreme performance and small size, xSense is able to deliver unprecedented control and acquisition capabilities in a compact, rugged package with extreme industrial certifications and ratings for operation in harsh industrial environments. Temperature ranges of -40° to 55° C (-40° to 131° F) and a variety of international safety, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), and environmental certifications and ratings are all available with xSense.
xSense can be used as standalone digitizer or as a part of daisy chain SHM system. Series of xDAS units can be connected in a network using standard CAT5e cable for easy installation. xSense can accept various type of sensors required for SHM instrumentation like: displacement transducers, temperature sensors, humidity sensors, wind speed and wind direction sensors, etc. set up to run reliably for days, months, or years without stopping.
