The DS.A.3 is a 3-axis acceleration sensor with a dynamically selectable measurement range. The sensor delivers high precise digital data over the three orthogonal space axis. The measuring unit itself is placed inside a enclosure made of massive aluminum. The enclosure is mountable and provides a socket (M8) for the connection with a control unit. Suitable sensor cables are available from S.E.A separately. The DS.A.3 communicates with the control unit by means of a digital protocol (e.g. SPI), which has to be implemented on the control unit. For this purpose S.E.A. provides a ready-to-use solution. As the electrical interface a SEA 9210 Multifunction I/O cRIO module is perfectly suitable, as it provides an adequate sensor supply source beside the required high-speed digital I/O lines. As the software interface the Digital Software Toolkit was created. This software offers function palettes incl. examples in LabVIEW, providing a fast and easy integration into user applications. The Digital Sensor Toolkit basically allows an operation with other cRIO modules different than SEA 9210, as long as suitable high-speed digital lines and sensor supply are ensured by the user.

The combination of analog inputs, binary in- and outputs and direct FPGA lines makes the SEA 9210 suitable for a wide range of applications, for example:Diagnosis and monitoring of autonomous CompactRIO systems (System status, supply status...)Supervision of environment parameter (temperature, pressure, humidity, air quality...)Supervision of mechanical stress (shock, vibration...)The module offers 3 analog channels for voltage measurements and 2 analog channels for current measurements (over an external shunt resistor). Two voltage channels and two current channels share a common Analog-Digital converter (ADC) respectively, enabling el. power measurements on two independent channels. The basic function of the analog channels is shown in the image SEA 9210 Analog Input above. The 4 digital inputs can be used to monitor binary system states (e.g. 'Door Open!'). The wide input range offers a great tolerance with respect to the system signal levels. The 4 digital outputs can be used to control system components (e.g. switches, lamps, etc.).The SEA 9210 Multifunction I/O Module offers direct FPGA lines along with an integrated power source to incorporate devices with digital interfaces. Typically, these devices are digital sensors with a digital SPI, I2C or similar communication interface. These sensors often require an external power supply, which can be provided by the integrated power source of the module. All I/O channels are insulated against the backplane. The principle of function is shown in the image SEA 9210 Block Diagram above.System RequirementsNI CompactRIO™ with a FPGA chassis (currently not compatible with NI cRIO-904x/905x.
