ADwin-Gold-II Real-Time Data Acquisition System

The ADwin-Gold-II Real-Time Data Acquisition System is a stand-alone, compact real-time data acquisition and control system that includes a fast, local DSP controller and memory, analog and digital inputs and outputs, as well as an Ethernet or USB interface for the communication with a PC. It is housed in a robust metal enclosure for use in industrial applications or in the field.

Additional Functionality

There are a number of options available that provide additional functions such as counters, encoder interfaces, serial and CAN bus interfaces, and SSI interfaces. The systems can be used in laboratories, on a DIN-rail in industrial machines, or in mobile and in-vehicle applications.

Exact timing with the TiCo Coprocessor

With the standard auxiliary processor, TiCo meets the Gold II ADwin highest timing requirements. The independent, programmable TiCo may have their own bus to access all inputs and outputs and interfaces. Self-sufficient and produces extremely precise and processed the TiCo signal pattern in the nanosecond range, for example, to simulate or test interfaces of components.

Rugged & Compact

With its rugged, compact metal housing the ADwin-Gold II can be used flexibly, such as a desktop unit, for panel mounting, or as a portable system in combination with a notebook. The supply voltage of 9 to 28 V allows measurements in both motor vehicles that are also in industrial environments.

ADwin operation with the PC


Multiple PCs can communicate with one ADwin system concurrently. This may be useful during the program implementation and setup. On the other hand, one PC can also access multiple ADwin systems e.g. in a network for a centralized monitoring of various applications.

While working with ADwin, the first step is always to download the real-time operating system to the ADwin system via the Ethernet or USB interface. Then, the ADbasic real-time processes can be loaded and started or stopped as required. Single values or whole data sets (arrays), e.g. measured or set-point values can be exchanged bi-directionally. The deterministic (exact and predictable in time) execution of the real-time processes is not affected by the communcation between ADwin and the PC.

Real-time development with ADbasic and ADtools

With ADbasic, you define the processing sequences that are executed on the ADwin hardware. ADbasic optimizes and compiles the program code on a mouse-click. After being loaded on the ADwin system by ADbasic or a graphical PC user interface, the real-time processes execute independently. ADbasic contains the functions to access all inputs and outputs as well as functions for floating-point operations, process control and communication with the PC. A library is provided which contains standard functions e.g. for filtering, various examples for counter use, closed-loop controllers, function generators etc. which leads to a faster program implementation.

With the easily configurable ADtools you are able to display your real-time data graphically or numerically, to visualize process sequencing or to set input values via potentiometers, sliders or push buttons. Additionally, ADtools always provide you with the current status of your ADwin system resources.
