RA2800A Data Acquisition System Features
Multi-channel Measurement Direct sensor inputs up to 32 channels (16 slots). 16 digital inputs for measuring various timing signals.
Unique and easy “Pen-Recorder” Mode Easy operation like a pen recorder by the touch panel and virtual amp controls. High-speed and high-quality printout at max 50mm/sec.
Large 12.1″ Display 12.1″ TFT color LCD display for better visibility of measured data.
Long-term continuous recording on HDD Built-in 40GB HDD provides 60 days recording At 10ms sampling on 32 channels
User selectable measurement modes With Omniace III RA2800A, users can easily select from five (5) measurement modes: Pen Recorder mode for real time strip chart recording, HD Recorder mode for long term recording of data to an HDD, X-Y Recorder mode for displaying/recording X-Y correlation of two signals, Multi Recorder mode captures transients while recording steady-state signals, and a Memory Recorder mode for recording fast events.
Simple Operation A “virtual” Amplifier Control Panel with “Auto Function” automatic adjustment mode combined with our proven reliable touch panel guarantee accurate data recording and simple operation.
Upright Type (easy setup on a bench top or rack) Parts configuration for measurement on a bench top or rackcontrol, display and printer units on the front; amplifiers and interfaces on the back.
High-speed & High-quality Printing Real time selectable chart speeds from 50mm/sec to 1mm/min (resolution: 20 dots/mm).
32 channels analog and 16 channels digital recording Input up to 32 channels of analog data via isolated, dual channel, plug-in amplifier modules for a wide variety of signals and sensors.Its 16 digital input channels measure diverse signal timing and contact status.
Outstanding Search Function Max/Min, time and other search functions are available for finding required data points automatically after long term measurement.
Standard LAN and USB I/F LAN (100BASE-T) for data communication and USB for connecting to external storage devices are equipped as standard interfaces.

The Soltec data recorder product line was acquired by A&D in 2015, and since that time, we have continuously supplied products to governments and commercial firms. The list of data recorders includes the following models:
Omniace Falcon II TA220-2300
Omniace Falcon II TA220-2300A
Soltec Falcon II TA220-2300A
Omniace Falcon II TA220-2800
Omniace Falcon II TA220-2800A
Soltec Falcon II TA220-2800A
The models listed above, and the successor product (RA2300MKII), continue to use a common set of plug-in modules such as amplifier cards, interface cards and test leads.
A&D continues to sell, support, service and service these products from our Americas headquarters in San Jose, California. Various models will continue to carry the Soltec brand identification until further notice. A&D has assumed the Soltec CAGE code 63338 and continues to supply product under this CAGE code.
