SIRIUS Technology

R8 is a high channel count, all-in-one data acquisition system build around SIRIUS DAQ technology. Systems feature DualCoreADC® analog inputs with 160 dB dynamic range and acquisition speeds of 200 kHz per channel or optional high-speed amplifiers with speeds up to 1 MHz per channel. 

R8 chassis can hold up to 8 SIRIUS DAQ slices with the total of 128 analog channels, 64 counter/encoder channel, 192 digital channels, and up to 8 high speed CAN bus ports. An array of different amplifiers are available for virtually any signal and sensor. 

Learn more about SIRIUS DAQ system.

High Channel Count DAQ

R8 can be configured with up to:

  • 128 analog channels, 
  • 192 digital channels,
  • 48 counter/encoder channels and
  • 8 CAN bus input channels

in one compact, rugged chassis. This makes R8 one of the most compact data acquisition systems on the market. 

If that is not enough channels, multiple R8 DAQ systems can be connected and synchronized together to form larger DAQ systems with thousands of channels using Dewesoft NET technology. 

Full HD Display

R8D and R8DB DAQ systems have integrated 17'-inch high-brightness, multitouch display with Full HD resolution. The display provides enough resolution for all your visuals and enough visibility even in the harshest environments. The high-quality display allows wide viewing angles.

Included Dewesoft X3 software is build to be touch-friendly and includes smart visual controls and graphs that allow easy multitouch gesture-based operation. 

Powerful Computer

At the heart of every R8 DAQ system is a powerful SBOX computer powered by Intel Core i7 CPU. Together with 4 GB of memory, fast internal SSD storage, and a removable data SSD hard drive it provides enough storage and power for processing data from thousands of channels. The R8 SBOX computer is also equipped with all the modern interfaces for connectivity and expansion:

  • Network interfaces: 1x GLAN, 1x WLAN, optionally with two GLAN ports.
  • USB 3.0: 4x USB 3.0 ports for data acquisition devices like SIRIUSDEWE-43A, and peripherals like mouse, keyboard, printers and external hard drives.
  • EtherCAT master port: for connecting any of our EtherCAT data acquisition devices like KRYPTON or SIRIUS.
  • HDMI and VGA video: for connecting an external display.
  • GPS receiver: optional built-in 10 Hz or 100 Hz GPS receiver with an option to connect external GPS display.

B for Battery Power

R8B and R8DB data acquisition systems have built-in 384 Wh Li-Ion batteries for maximum portability.

The Li-Ion batteries included in the R8B/R8DB systems are hot-swappable. This means you can exchange and replace the batteries even during your measurement without the need for restarting the system and interrupting the test. 

Analog Out

R8 systems can optionally be configured with up to 64 analog output channels. These output channels can function in any of the following modes:

  • stand-alone digital signal amplifier,
  • multi-channel function generator for modal/shaker control,
  • control channels or
  • a replay of the analog data.


To learn more visit SIRIUS DAQ system page for the detailed description of individual modes. 

For added real-time control capability visit R8rt DAQ and control system page. R8rt is a unique solution on the market. It has additional real-time EtherCAT bus and can feed data to any 3rd party EtherCAT master controller for real-time control.

EtherCAT Expansion

R8 instruments are equipped with EtherCAT master port which can be used to expand and distribute additional DAQ channels with any of our EtherCAT based DAQ units like SIRIUS and/or KRYPTON DAQ modules.

EtherCAT port also includes hardware synchronization hub to synchronize all the connected EtherCAT DAQ channels with internal R8 DAQ channels. 

GPS/GNSS and RTK Positioning

SBOX computer inside R8 instruments can be configured with optional 10 Hz or 100 Hz GPS receiver with optional Real-Time Kinematics (RTK) support for the most precise (down to 1cm) position-based test and measurement applications.

GPS and RTK option will transform the R8 system into powerful automotive data logger for an advanced position based test and measurement applications like pass-by-noise, vehicle dynamics, brake testing, road load data, ADAS and more.

For more information about position measurement also see GPS and IMU devices and GPS PRO training course.

Build Quality

R8 DAQ systems are built from the extremely rugged aluminum chassis and tested to work in extreme scenarios. R8 has been installed in test beds, rocket launch platforms, vehicles on proving grounds and ships. 

If you need a rugged, high channel count all-in-one DAQ system, R8 instruments are the best option on the market. Period.

External Calibration Reference

R8 system features optional cal reference input. External calibration reference can be connected via single BNC connector on the rear side of the R8 and can be switched in the software to all input channels at once to check the amplifier performance and accuracy.

* Please check your local sales office for information which Sirius amplifiers have the support for external cal reference.
