CATS-1000 SW Description

The CATS software is developed on a background of National Instruments LabVIEW and provides flexibility in program operation. In this application the CATS software operates on a scripted text files from soup to nuts, so operators need not know the complexities of the system or LabVIEW and can focus on their tasks.

CATS software configurations all maintain a common architecture and theme, so as your program grows the environment need not be redefined and relearned.

Analog Input Module

Fastek’s Analog Input Module provides an interface to a wide variety of general purpose analog input platforms. The module typically supports platforms with a voltage range of =/- 10V, sampling rates up to 250Ks per second, and 16 bits per sample of resolution. Fastek’s highly scalable application architecture supports multiple analog input modules each controlling 16 channel, or great, single ended and differential DAQ hardware.

Analog Output Module

The Analog Output Module interfaces with a wide range of general purpose analog output DACs. Typical output modules have a range of =/- 10V, sampling rate of up to 1Ms per second, resolution of 12 to 16 bits, and contain 4 to 96 channels. Multiple Analog Output Modules are generally present in any given CATS application where each controls their own DAC

Thermocouple Module

A wide range of multichannel DAQ cards specifically designed thermocouple signal acquisition are supported by Fastek’s Thermocouple Interface Module. This module supports a set of DAQ cards covering all industry standard Thermocouple types. Also supported are cards with the most demanding form factors and cards with the greatest sets of capabilities.

Digital Input Module

Fastek’s Digital Input Module Interface focuses on a subset of digital DAQs with the following specifications; (8 to 96 channels TTL, LVTTL, or CMOS inputs) (Up to 20MHz (80MHz (80MB per second) transfer rate) (Supports 8, 16, or 32 bit transfers) (Independent trigger signals to start data acquisition and pattern generation).

Digital Output Module

The CATS Digital Output Module provides precise control of discreet logic signals for the most demanding process control, peripheral, and IC ship communications application. The software module is designed to interface with digital output cads supporting programmed I/O, interrupt, and bus-mastering DMA type data transfers.
