Spartan

Scalable solution for process monitoring tasks
imc SPARTAN is a compact, high-precision measurement system for quasi-static and dynamic voltage, strain gauges, current and temperature signals.

Product Description

imc SPARTAN is ideal for monitoring tasks, for instance, in civil engineering or transportation applications. Due to its independence from the PC and its self-activation capability, it covers areas in which other PC-based systems have to give up. The very high number of channels required in some cases makes the up to 128 channel system the best option. For even more channels, an unlimited number of imc SPARTAN devices can be cascaded and synchronized. Further applications can be found in system engineering, automation, material and endurance tests, as well as in the growing market of wind power.
