DAQ Devices

The isi-sys DAQ devices are set up for oper­a­tion with the Vic soft­ware for Dig­i­tal Image Cor­re­la­tion (DIC) by Cor­re­lat­ed Solu­tions and func­tion as inte­gral part of isi-sys turn-key DIC sys­tems. They main­ly serve for trig­ger­ing the cam­eras (hard­ware trig­ger) and simul­ta­ne­ous­ly record­ing ana­log data as well as for deliv­er­ing ana­logue real-time out­put gen­er­at­ed by the Vic-Gauge software.

There are three DAQ types with dif­fer­ent per­for­mance and fea­tures (and pricing):



Only the DAQ-STD- 8D Syn­chro­niza­tion- / Trig­ger Device can be used for syn­chro­niza­tion of the cam­eras via a peri­od­ic sig­nal (sup­port­ed by the Ful­crum Mod­ule of Vic-Snap or the isi-sys syn­chro­ni­sa­tion soft­ware mod­ule / isi-Studio








Isi-sys also offers a 16-bit device — the DAQ-T8D-16. Both devices have +/-10V out­put channels.







The DAQ-T4D-12 is a 12bit device with 5V ana­log output








Camera Trigger & Power supply

Hard­ware trig­ger­ing and the pow­er sup­ply for the cam­eras are trans­mit­ted via the 12-pin Hirose con­nec­tors on the DAQ device. Two of these con­nec­tors are avail­able for con­nect­ing up to two cam­eras. Isi-sys also offers Y‑cables for oper­at­ing 4 cam­eras (two stereo sys­tems) or more. It is also pos­si­ble to oper­ate more than two cam­eras with one DAQ device. We will be hap­py to advise you.


Computer Connection 

Con­nec­tion to a com­put­er is done by USB cable (type A <-> type B connector).


Analog inputs

isi-sys DAQ devices are avail­able with either dif­fer­en­tial or non-dif­fer­en­tial ana­log inputs. The ana­log input con­nec­tors are BNC type, the range is +/-10V.


Further IO connectors

Besides ana­log inputs, all isi-sys DAQ devices can also be equipped with ana­log out­puts (BNC type con­nec­tor), which dif­fer in volt­age range depend­ing on DAQ type. Dig­i­tal IO con­nec­tors (BNC type) are avail­able as well.
