Multi-Channel Data Acquisition & Analysis

Tornado by SINUS Messtechnik GmbH

Desk and Field Multi-Channel Data Acquisition System – up to 32 channels


Tornado is a compact 16 to 32 channel measurement system with 24 bit ADC which is ideally suited for both desktop and field use.

Special features of the Tornado are the fan-less design and the 3-way power supply from AC, DC and battery (V-mount battery on the back of the device for up to 6 hours of autonomous operation).

The Tornado casing allows installation of up to four Apollo PCI-Express Cards (2, 4 or 8 channel per card) data acquisition cards. Additional connectors for external GPS system synchronisation and 8x SLOW channels are also available.

The Tornado measurement system features an extremely robust design at a moderate weight. The folding carrying handle at the top of the instrument is suited for transport and installation of the instrument in the field (eg. in a vehicle).
