All-in-one measuring instrument with optional conditioner cards mounted
The EDX-2000B is a general purpose, expandable, all in one instrument that can measure, monitor, record, and process signals detected by various sensors. It is available in 32 channel type and 64 channel type.The EDX-2000B starts measuring according to preset conditions and can simultaneously sample signals in 16 channels at 200 kHz (32 channels at 100 kHz). The recorded and processed data can easily be transferred online or offline to the PC. Furthermore, the EDX-2000B enables recording of voice memos, analog reproduction of recorded data with an optional DA card, and recording of CAN data with an optional CAN card.


  • Able to monitor input signals and check processed results in real time by processing data for FFT or histogram, while measurement is in progress.
  • The strain/voltage measuring card CDV-40B provides 8 channels.
  • Built-in large capacity hard disk enables recording of approximately 13 hours of data sampled at 10 kHz in 32 channels.
  • Voice memos can be recorded together with measured data.
  • An optional CAN card enables CAN data recording.
  • An optional DA card enables reproduction of analog data.
  • FFT analysis, histogram analysis, arithmetic operation are possible.
  • Max. sampling frequency is 200 kHz, and simultaneous sampling in 16 channels is possible even at such a high frequency.
  • Interactive operation makes measuring tasks easy and speedy.
  • Easy-to-handle ATA card or hard disk card is optionally available for offline data transfer to the PC.
  • LAN interface enables online data transfer to the PC.
  • A battery is built in to safeguard†against instantaneous power failure.
  • Data is saved in KYOWA standard file format KS2 and can be analyzed by the optional data analysis software DAS-100A.
