DNR-12-1G – 12-slot Gigabit Ethernet Data Acquisition and Control Rack

3U Gigabit Ethernet Data Acquisition and control rack


The DNR-12-1G RACKtangle chassis is a compact (3U), rugged Ethernet based data acquisition and control I/O rack. The RACKtangle DNR-12-1G is an ideal choice for a myriad of Ethernet data acquisition and control applications where small footprint and high performance are desired.



  • Allows the installation of up to 12 I/O boards
  • Over 80 different I/O boards available
  • Front-loading I/O boards for rapid reconfiguration
  • Two independent Gigabit Ethernet Interfaces
  • with independent IP addresses
  • Dual USB 2.0 ports (one controller and one slave)
  • Inter RACK Sync Interface
  • Compact: 3U rack (5.25″ x 6.2″ x 17.5″)
  • Up to 300 A/D, 576 DIO, 384 D/A, 144 ARINC-429 channels per rack
  • Rugged: 3 g Vibration, 50 g Shock, -40 to +70 °C
  • Real-time: 1000 I/O scans in < 1 millisecond
  • Complete Windows, Linux and RT OS support
  • LabVIEW™, MATLAB support and more

The DNR-12-1G supports a rapidly growing variety of I/O boards, currently over 30. It is configurable with over 5 quadrillion different configurations and supports standard off-the-shelf products, making it ideally suited for a wide variety of industrial, aerospace, automotive and laboratory data acquisition and control applications.
Though the backplane electronics are identical to our popular PowerDNA “Cube” series, the PowerDNR RACKtangle series provides two Gigabit Ethernet interfaces and provides slots for up to 12 I/O boards, allowing the I/O boards to be quickly and easily installed and removed directly from the front of the rack. These capabilities dramatically increase performance and simplify system reconfiguration when necessary.
The DNR-12-1G functions in true real-time. It functions with 1 millisecond updates guaranteed with 1000 I/O and up to 6 million samples per second. Connection options are flexible, supporting WiFi, GMS and Cell network connections, built-in USB 2.0 slave/controller ports and 1000Base-T via Cat-5 cable.
