The GRANITE™6 DAQ is a powerful core component for your complete data-acquisition system. The GRANITE 6 provides fast communication, low power requirements, built-in USB and Wi-Fi, modular design, and high analog input accuracy and resolution. It uses universal (U) terminals to allow a connection to virtually any sensor—analog, digital, or smart. The multipurpose DAQ is also capable of measuring static vibrating-wire measurements.
Learn about our patented VSPECT® spectral-analysis technology at our VSPECT® Essentials web resource.
The dynamic vibrating-wire measurement technique is protected under U.S. Patent No. 8,671,758, and the vibrating-wire spectral-analysis technology (VSPECT®) is protected under U.S. Patent No. 7,779,690.
The GRANITE™6 provides extreme measurement versatility, has multiple communications options, processes sensor responses to engineering units, performs calculations, generates alarms, and controls external devices. Data are stored in onboard, nonvolatile memory awaiting transfer to the end user via direct or remote access. The GRANITE™6 can generate real-time or event-driven data tables. These data can be further processed with high-level math functions and statistical summaries such as averages, standard deviations, and rainflow histograms.

The CPI Calculator is a downloadable Microsoft Excel spreadsheet used to estimate the usage and capacity of a CPI network. The calculator provides an overview on CPI devices including the CDM-A108, CDM-A116, CDM-VW300, CDM-VW305, and the CSAT3B. The calculator can also estimate the measurement speed of the CDM-A108 and CDM-A116 based on the number of channels and measurement parameters.
The CPI Calculator is an estimation tool and will help you better understand and design CPI networks by considering the following:
