Fluke Introduces The New LAN-Enabled 2680 Data Acquisition System

A flexible and scalable DAQ tool for multi-channel applications

- 120-channel-capable design offers low price-per-channel of under $100
- Flexible and scalable to 2,000 universal channels per system, it is suited for large-scale precision data acquisition applications
- Optional OPC server allows easy integration to existing application software
- Eliminates need for external signal conditioning -- a potential savings of up to $250 per channel

EVERETT, WA - Fluke Corporation, the world's leading supplier of test and measurement equipment, introduces the new Fluke 2680A Data Acquisition System (DAQ).

"Control engineers are always under pressure to improve operational efficiency," said Bruce Fuller, Fluke Precision Measurement product marketing manager, "Now, the flexible, easy-to-use Fluke 2680A unit offers fast, accurate data acquisition on local area networks. In fact, the 2680 Series sets a new standard for DAQ flexibility, ease of use, and value."

The Fluke 2680A DAQ system chassis is designed for small to large multi-channel applications requiring reliable Ethernet communications. The front-end chassis style system has six slots, allowing users to custom build a complete data-logging system. Five of these slots can accommodate any combination of
20-channel universal input modules compatible to the new 2680 Series -- doing away with the need for, and the added expense of, external signal conditioning. The sixth slot may be used for an additional analog input module or for an available digital I/O relay module that adds an additional element of control to the system. The Fluke 2680A's flexible 10 BaseT and 100 BaseT compatibility means it will communicate with older networks as well as newer 100 BaseT installations, distributing data anywhere
it's needed.

Comprehensive Feature Set

Utilizing Ethernet TCP/IP protocols and network interfaces for 10/100 BaseT, each analog module features the Fluke-patented Universal Input Module (UIM) that lets users connect and measure virtually any electrical or physical parameter without requiring external signal conditioning. Available 20-channel analog measurement modules include: The 2680A-Fast Analog Input (FAI) module with 1.000 RPS for dynamic monitoring requirements at a suggested U.S. list price of $1,295: and the 2680A-Precision
Analog Input (PAI) module with up to 300 V of channel-to-channel isolation and ultimate precision, at a suggested U.S. list price of $1595. Input types that are compatible with the 2680A units are: V dc, V ac, resistance, current, 4-wire ohms, RTD, thermocouples, thermistors, frequency, and totalizer inputs.
Compatible outputs include digital I/O and alarm relay contacts.

Now available from Fluke distributors and representatives worldwide, the Fluke 2680A chassis has a suggested U.S. list price of $2,995. For more information on the Fluke 2680A Data Acquisition System, or to find the location of the nearest representative, visit or contact Fluke
