High-speed, 54- or 16-channel Memory Recorders Provide Advanced Data Acquisition and Rack-Mount Systems Integration

SKU: MEMORY HiCORDER MR8740, MR8741 Category:


The MR8740 and MR8741 are rack-mountable data acquisition systems that deliver high-speed, multi-channel measurements over maximum of 32+22 channels. The MR8990 DVM unit is a 2-channel input unit for the MR8740/MR8741 for measuring minute fluctuations in output from sensors in automobiles and other equipment and voltage fluctuations in devices such as batteries at high levels of precision and resolution.

MR8740 54-ch model, 864 MW memory, main unit only
MR8741 16-ch model, 256 MW memory, main unit only

* Main unit MR8740/8741 requires input units and other dedicated options. Input cords not included. For more information about input cords and other common options, refer to the detailed catalog.



Key Features

• Use the new DVM Unit MR8990 to measure DC voltages on 2 channels (for use with the Memory HiCorder MR8741/8740 only)

• High-precision measurement for applications such as investigating minute voltage fluctuations in sensor output

• The MR8741 (MR8740) can save data from 16 (54) Digital Voltmeter Units at once. (DCV measurement only)

• Unlike standard multi-channel scan-type loggers, these instruments can perform simultaneous sampling

• High accuracy of ±0.01 % and super-high 1.2 million-count resolution

• High-speed sampling at 500 samples/s

• Isolated input (channel-to-channel and channel-to-chassis: max. rated voltag to earth of 300 V AC/DC

■ Basic specifications (Accuracy guaranteed for 1 year, Post-adjustment accuracy guaranteed for 1 year)
