LTR-EU-8 8-slot crate with interfaces USB 2.0, Ethernet and power supply

8-slot crate with interfaces USB 2.0, Ethernet and power supply
  • Certified configurable I/O device
  • Ethernet interface provides remote data acquisition
  • USB interface provides convenience for short-distance connection to a computer
  • Ability to operate in autonomous mode and to program the signal processor

Workstation with 16 slots for galvanically isolated LTR-modules, with two interfaces USB 2.0 (high-speed) and Fast Ethernet (100BASE-TX) and the synchronization interface.

Multifunctionality of LTR-EU-8 provides two interface connections and multiple configurations of the installed LTR-modules.

Ethernet interface allows you to enter data at any distance from the operator's computer and eliminates the need of additional remote computers. The ready-made remote data acquisition software significantly reduces the complexity of tasks implementing.

The additional feature of autonomous operation of the device and low-level programming of built-in signal processor Blackfin ADSP-BF537 expands the functionality and allows LTR-EU-8 to be used as stand-alone controllers in dynamic tasks with rigid time feedback.

Galvanic isolation of the crate Isolation between the crate ground terminal and the contacts of module connectors up to 820 V (AC voltage of sinusoidal form with frequency of 50 Hz and average square value of 820 V for 1 min).
Galvanic isolation of Ethernet 1500 V  (50 Hz, 1 min)
External synchronization
Number of synchronization inputs 2
Number of synchronization outputs 2
Static parameters of synchronization inputs

• Logical "0" level is no more than 0.5 V
• Logical "1" level is not less than 2.4 V

(TTL-compatible inputs)

Parameters of synchronization outputs Correspond to CMOS/LVTTL logic with +3.3 V supply voltage (TTL-compatible outputs)

Sync connector

The circuits of the synchronization connector are not galvanically isolated. For a description of the signals, see the User's Guide.

For organization of galvanically isolated LTR-EU crate's interface, as well as the RS-485/422 interface, a RS-485/422-UART transceiver cable with galvanic isolation can be applied.

LGraph2 software package

  • lgraph2.zip (filesize: 24 391 141 bytes, date: 24.04.2019)

    LGraph2 is a free multi-channel data recorder for Windows. Version 2.35.00 provides the possibility of simultaneous data visualization and recording from the ADCs: L-502, L-780M, L-783, L-791, E-502, E14-140, E14-140M, E14-440, E-154, E20-10, LTR11, LTR114, LTR27, LTR212, LTR216, LTR22, LTR24, LTR25, LTR51. It requires an updated version of the LComp driver (from version 01.04.2010) and ltrserver (no lower than 1.5.2.1).

Software for Windows

    Beta version. LCOMP library for Windows XP/Vista/Win7/Win8/Win10 32 and 64-bit versions with drivers. The installer and drivers are digitally signed. The library is built on the basis of modern WDM-drivers rewritten on WDF. It includes the WDM driver itself for L-CARD hardware, the DLL library with source code, programming examples, electronic description, etc. The LCOMP library provides support for almost the entire range of products: PCI boards, USB modules. ISA support is excluded.

    The library includes “L-Graph I” software. L-Graph I supports the following devices: L-1450, L-761, L-780, L-783, L-791, E14-140, E-154 and E14-440. Files recorded by L-Graph I can also be read and processed using the demo-version of PowerGraph v.3.X.
