Yokogawa SL1000 High-Speed Data Acquisition Unit
Yokogawa SL1000 High-Speed Data Acquisition Unit
The new Yokogawa SL1000 is the only data acquisition system that delivers independent, isolated channel hardware at 100MS/ch rates, with no compromise in bit resolution, memory depth, or streaming performance.
In the pursuit of isolated high-speed waveform measurements, Yokogawa has achieved a maximum sample rate of 100 MS/s (10 ns sampling interval). The SL1000 can accurately capture high-speed and high-voltage phenomena by using the newly developed 100 MS/s, 12-Bit resolution, 20 MHz frequency range and 1-kV * Isolation Module (model 720210).
Furthermore, you can combine modules that support measurements of a variety of signals, giving you solutions for an extensive range of applications.

Saving Data over Long Periods of Time
Data can be saved to the SL1000’s internal acquisition memory over long durations, or it can also be streamed in real-time to a PC's hard disk or the SL1000’s internal hard disk ¹ ².
¹: with the /HD1 Option
²: Maximum speed of real time hard disk recording depends on measuring conditions.
³: Trigger mode: Single, measuring on 1 module, 2 channels.
Supports parallel testing
Perform measurements with up to four simultaneously independent sample rates. The amount of data saved on hard disk can be reduced by optimizing the sample rate for the DUT on a module by module basis.
High-Speed Data Transfer & GIGAZoom Function
You can transfer data to the PC at high speeds via USB 2.0 or Ethernet 1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet¹. The SL1000’s high-speed data compression engine (GIGAZoom engine) displays waveforms on the PC in real time² (even with massive amounts of data at high sample rates). It offers the same display updating and zooming performance as standalone measuring instruments.
¹: with the /C10 Option
²: The number of channels from which waveforms can be displayed during measurement may be limited depending on the PC performance and measuring conditions.
Real Time Saving to Hard Disk
Continuously measured data can be saved in real time to a PC's hard disk and/or the SL1000's internal hard disk ¹. File names are assigned automatically, freeing you from time consuming file operations. Data can be saved simultaneously - and in real time - to both the PC’s and SL1000's hard disks ¹. This bolsters the reliability of your data storage system, protecting your vital data. You can access the SL1000's internal hard disk ¹ with Xviewer waveform viewer software, or through an FTP client over Ethernet ².

²: with the /C10 Option
³: Typical values. Actual values depend on PC performance and measurement conditions.
Settings for the Hard Disk Recording Function
By using the various recording features, you can efficiently and automatically record only the data you need to the hard disk. Just specify the recording destination, recording start and stop conditions, conditions for repeating recording, and other criteria. With free run mode, the specifiable parameters for the recording start condition are immediate, time, and alarm; for the recording stop condition, the parameters are continuous, time, recording time, and alarm; and for the repeating condition, recording interval and number of recordings*. With triggered mode, measured data is recorded on each trigger. You can also manually save data from the SL1000's internal acquisition memory to PC hard disk.
*: Max. file size per recording is 12 GB (recording on 4 channels, approximately 1.5 GW/ch)
Multi Units Synchronization
Maximum 8 Synchronized Units
- 100 MS/s up to 128 ch (16ch x 8 units)
- Can use 4 different sample rates across all units
- (Supports Parallel testing)
- Can combine trigger and alarm for channels across all units
- Maximum speed for saving in real time1
- PC HDD: 1.6 MS/s = 100kS/s x 16ch > 10kS/s x 128ch (Total data transfer rate to PC HDD is 1.6MS/s) Unit HDD: 1.6MS/s = 100kS/s x 16ch (100kS/s x 128ch with 8 units)
1: Typical values. Actual values depend on PC performance and measurement conditions
In synchronized unit mode, recording into PC and SL1000 embedded HDD at the same time is not possible.
The recording file is per unit basis. (Utility software interface.)
Setting Marks (NEW)
You can input the comments in the mark area when monitoring (Free run mode) over long periods of time.
You can input the comments in the mark area when monitoring (Free run mode) for a long time.
Real time X-Y Display (NEW)
You can now see both the T-Y and X-Y waveform Display. It is easy to evaluate data with fast update.
Auto Play (NEW)
It is easy to set zoom position of waveform when measuring over long periods of time data or large data.
File Utility Function (NEW)
You can save the data in both ASCII and Binary format. You can also load data with the same analysis program (ex. MatLAB).
Setting Operation Display
Accumulating Waveforms (NEW)
You can easily detect unevenness or changes in acquired data.
Setup Wizard Makes It Easy
The Wizard automatically recognizes any connected SL1000 and its' plug-in modules. Just click the Start button to start measuring right away - no complicated settings to enter. The four screens of the Setup Wizard guide you easily through detailed settings for configuring the system, measuring, saving and displaying. Of course, you can save and recall your settings at any time.
Individual Sample Rates for Each Measurement Channel Group
Up to four groups of measurement channels can be defined with individual measurement conditions and display settings. Even waveforms from groups with different sample rates can be displayed in the same window.
Easy Tabular Setup Screens
Measurement conditions and channel display settings can be viewed and set easily using a tabular format. Use drag and drop shortcuts to quickly setup multiple channels.

Control Buttons - Just Like Your DVD Remote
Measurement and saving can be started and stopped using the same familiar buttons found on a DVD remote control. Start using the instrument on the same day you receive it, with absolutely no programming required.
Real Time Waveform Display and Analysis
You can display a zoomed portion of the waveform simultaneously with the overall waveform during triggered measurement. Even during live recording, you can use the display hold * to review past data. You can also perform cursor measurements or automated measurement of waveform parameters (up to 26 during triggered measurement) in real time.
*: The display hold may automatically switch to display resume depending on the measuring conditions.
Easy Display Setup
Adjust your vertical display scale with ease using mouse shortcuts.
