Combustion Analyzer

With the PLEX PCA-2000, high-level combustion analysis is easier and more accessible than ever before.  Designed for any type of on-board or test-bed application, the PCA-2000® is suitable for automotive, motorcycle, marine, off-road and even UAV projects.  The ultra-compact IP67 sealed high-speed data-logger comes with 4 or 8 channels for combustion sensors and has additional I/Os, CAN BUS and internal sensors (50Hz GPS / 100Hz IMU) for End-to-End logging without any compromises.  It can log internally on it’s 2GB memory or stream the data in real time via Ethernet.  What sets the system apart is in fact the PLEX PCA-WIN® Data Analysis Software, which not only provides unparalleled versatility, speed and customization but also helps one interpret complex data easily and derive inferences that will improve performance or reveal tough problems, not easily detectable by other means.
