A system where up to 8 processes can be defined in a single data acquisition station situated remotely (over the Ethernet) up to 100m away from the workstation running Corvus. The channel count is limited only by the capability of the hardware. The data acquisition station can be positioned close to the measurement points reducing cable lengths and thus improving the signal quality.

Data Acquisition hardware: National Instruments PXIe-1082 portable 8 Slot rack with PXIe-8840 controller. A combination of up to 8 different Data Acquisition card types. Analog channel count 128.

Computer: Any PC running Windows 7 SP1 or above.
