The Hydra Series offers easy portability along with the Fluke built-in signal conditioning and Universal Input Module, at a price to fit your budget. You can easily retrieve data from the Hydra units via the RS-232 interface, or through a modem in upload or real-time mode. Channel information and measurement parameters can be set up directly from the front panel or your PC. Three models feature removable memory card data storage, internal memory storage, and direct real-time data transfer options. Should power fail, these instruments automatically resume data collection when power is restored.
The Hydra Series is extremely rugged and able to operate in diverse environments. Its operating range is 0 to 60ºC, and it is tested to stringent shock and vibration standards. The sturdy metal chassis of the Hydra effectively shields against electromagnetic interference, maintaining high measurement accuracy on low level signals. The analog circuitry is also isolated from the digital circuitry so you can measure high voltages directly (up to 300V ac rms). And it conforms to I.E.C., C.E and CSA safety standards. All set-up information is battery-backed, so it is immune to power failure. Hydra will return from a power loss and resume scanning, while all configuration information and stored data remain intact.
The 2635A Hydra Data Bucket is the ideal choice for gathering and transporting large volumes of data and for working extended periods from remote locations. With its removable memory card for data and set-up storage, it is the most versatile model - ideal for remote monitoring applications.
The Hydra Data Bucket comes equipped with a 256 KB PCMCIA card and is also available with either a 1 MB, 2 MB, or 4 MB memory card to suit your data storage needs. Data may be uploaded from these cards via the Hydra RS-232 port, the optional 263XA-803 memory card drive, or from the standard PCMCIA slot of your computer. Real-time data can be simultaneously transferred to a PC at the same time it is recorded to the memory card. Simply push a few front panel buttons or load instrument setups from the memory card.
The Hydra Data Bucket gives advance indication of a low battery or low memory condition on the memory card. Its internal memory buffer continues to store up to 70 scans while the card is removed.
