A data acquisition system for the pure data control

While featuring the powerful performance, expanded integration with peripheral devices and large easy reading display renowned for the 6000 series reader-programmers, the DAS-6008 is a cart mounted system designed to fit the smallest spaces within your workspace.

Many data sources—one database record. The DAS-6008 functions as a dynamic database by collecting and storing data from many transponders, formatting it all into one database record within its internal memory and displaying the data in an easy-to-read Vacuum Fluorescent Display. Incoming transponder data from Smart Probes is automatically date and time-stamped.

Secure setup with a keyboard. Don’t worry about unauthorized or accidental changing of setup specifications or use of higher-level features. The DAS-6008 only allows setup inputs to be made with an external keyboard hooked up to the unit.

Transmit to almost any peripheral. While engineered to be a fully-functional stand-alone device, the DAS-6008 also can serve as a hub in a larger data collection system by transmitting real-time or stored data to personal computers and other digital devices using the unit’s data ports. This enables a formatted database of transponder data to be transferred directly into a word processing or spreadsheet document.

Program Smart Probes and Transponders.

As a fully-integrated data acquisition system, the DAS-6008 can be programmed to read and collect data from BMDS Smart Probe scanners (SP-6004/6005, RSP-6004/6005, RR-6004/6005). Program the DAS-6008 to collect data from a range of industry-leading BMDS transponders that transmit identification and temperature data such as the Implantable Programmable Temperature Transponder (IPTT), the read/write non-temperature sensitive IPT and BMDS’s popular IMI ‘read-only’ transponder. All that is required to switch transponders is a simple probe change with no need to reconfigure data setup options already programmed into the DAS-6008.

Expand control with a keyboard connection. Connect a peripheral keyboard directly into the DAS-6008 to create a data collection task, enter long ID codes, program transponders and use the Memo feature to add notes and observations to data entries. When keyboard control is released, the DAS-6008 performs as a simple data wedge.

Designed for easy adoption. While offering a range of data programming and setup capabilities for the advanced user, the DAS-6008 is easy to train users to master its basic data collection operations. A Smart Probe, connected to the DAS-6008, reads implanted or needle-based BMDS transponders for identification and temperature data—depending on the transponder model deployed. Data can be easily viewed within a two-line LCD screen. Each time a transponder is read or data measurements entered, the new data appears in a second line of the screen as the previously entered data moves up to the first line. Scrolling back and forth to review data is easy. 

USB port enables PC and PDA compatibility. Plug the DAS-6008 into a PC or PDA and output data appears as a keystroke.

SmartFirmware Updates. BMDS provides firmware updates to enhance the input/output data collection capabilities of the DAS-6008.
