The CoCo-80X is a new generation of handheld data recorder and dynamic signal analyzer from Crystal Instruments. It is ideal for a wide range of industries including petrochemical, paper, steel and other metals, automotive, aviation, aerospace, electronics and military. These industries demand quick, easy, and accurate data recording and analysis, as well as a real-time machine condition monitoring solution.

The CoCo-80X is a rugged, lightweight, battery-powered handheld system with unparalleled performance and accuracy. Combined with hard keys, the multi-point touch functionality touchscreen is designed for an intuitive user interface that provides a wide variety of analysis functions.

Building on the success of the original CoCo-80, the new  CoCo-80X boasts improved speed, a bigger screen, and more connection options. A significantly more powerful processor frees DSP resources for faster, more reliable, and more complex processing in real time. The handheld system is equipped with a bright 7.0 inch color LCD display with multi-point touch functionality as well as a physical keypad. Flexible connections via a USB 2.0 port, 100Base-T Ethernet port, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi connection, SD card interface, HDMI interface, CAN bus/serial port, stereo headphone and microphone jack, and GPS. 

Connect the CoCo-80X to a PC to download files, remotely control operations, or upgrade the software through several means of network connections.

The CoCo-80X is equipped with 8 software-enabled input channels. Every CoCo-80X ships with 8 fully populated and functionally tested input channels. Embedded firmware contains a key enabling those channels for which software has been purchased. This means a unit initially purchased as a 2 channel CoCo-80X can be remotely upgrade to 4, 6, or 8 channels via purchased upgrade. Each analog input is serviced by two 24-bit ADCs and a DSP implementing the cross-path calibration technology of US Patent number 7,302,354 B2 to achieve better than 160 dBFS dynamic range. Measured time histories are stored in 32-bit single precision floating point format (per IEEE 754-2008) and all subsequent signal processing is performed using floating-point arithmetic. 54 sample rates from 0.48 Hz to 102.4 kHz are provided with better than 150 dB of alias-free data from DC to 45% of any selected sample rate protected by steep 160 dB/Octave anti-aliasing filters. The eight channels are amplitude matched within 0.1 dB and phase matched within 1°.

The CoCo-80X accurately measures and records both dynamic and static signals. The SD card storage simultaneously records 8 channels of data at up to 102.4 kHz while performing real-time frequency and time domain calculations. An embedded signal source channel provides several standard waveforms that are synchronized with the input sampling rate. A tachometer channel can be enabled to measure the rotating speed during data acquisition. The source and tachometer share a common LEMO connector.

In addition to data acquisition and extensive FFT spectral analysis functions, CoCo-80X provides advanced real-time analysis functions including ZOOM spectra, file export, FIR and IIR digital filters, histogram, statistics, order tracking for rotating machinery, fractional octave analysis, sound level meters, rotor balancing, vibration intensity, modal data acquisition, automated test and limit checking, swept sine, shock response spectrum and route-based vibration data collector functions.

The CoCo-80X hardware platform supports Dynamic Signal Analyzer (DSA) and Vibration Data Collector (VDC) mode. Each working mode has its own user interface and navigation structure. DSA mode is designed for structure analysis and mechanical testing. It is useful for electrical measurement, acoustic analysis, and a wide range of other applications. VDC mode is dedicated to route-based machine vibration data collection and trending. The user will select one of the working modes to execute.

The firmware update can be realized by either download from the Internet or through the SD card without relying on the Internet.

The CoCo-80X supports multiple languages that can be switched dynamically.
