Model 6000E, Enclosure 16-Slot, Ethernet Data & Control Interface


  • Enclosure for 16 I/O modules
  • Ethernet Interface provides 5+ MS/s aggregate data rate
  • Calibration voltage distribution
  • Alarm busses for control of external equipment
  • Optional on-board data storage
  • Built-in fans and cable tray


The 6000E enclosure has 16 slots for Series 6000 input and output modules with a gigabit Ethernet interface for programming, control and data output. An internal Control & Data Processor (Model 6096) provides an Ethernet interface to the remote Operators Workstation. The 6000E has 5 USB 2.0 connectors on the rear panel. This allows multiple Model 6000U enclosures to be used for system expansion. A sample clock bus is provided for multi rack installations.

The enclosures are 8U 19-inch rack mount. The enclosures have integral fans providing air circulation and an internal cable tray that routes the input and output cables from the front of the installed modules to exit the rear of the enclosure.

Data Redundancy is optionally available. A 2.5" HD (Module 6095) mounts on the USB controller board in each 6000U enclosure and provides a redundant recording point for the DAS. In the unlikely event the Operators Workstation or DAS Software fails, data will continue to record in each enclosure. Data can be recovered from the system post-test.

The Operators Workstation (PCCOWU) is the primary control and data recording point for the Series 6000 DAS. The PCCOWU is typically installed in the control room and runs PI660 Data Acquisition Software for system setup, calibration, display, recording, distribution and export. In installations where the DAS is not remote from the Operators Workstation, the PCCOWU will connect directly to Series 6000 Enclosures and does not require the CDP.

Enclosure Specifications

Series 6000 and 6100 Enclosures are common between the two product lines. Integrated A/D, data and sample rates noted in enclosure specifications apply only to the Series 6000 systems.

Data Format

Data Word

16 or 32-bits, 2's complement binary.

Scan Table

Maximum format length is 65,536 samples.

Sample Rates

Multiple sample rates consisting of the highest sample rate divided by binary numbers. Highest sample rate is programmable with 1 uS resolution.

Data Interface

Output Rate

Processor dependent, typically over 5 million 16-bit samples/second.


Processor and scan table dependent, typically less than 5 milliseconds.

Clock Stability

100 ppm over temperature range.



Gigabit Ethernet


Window's driver (Both 32 and 64-bit) provides high-level operating command set. Fully compatible with all implementations of PI660 operating software.

Control Inputs

TTL inputs for Start, Stop and Trigger assert flags in the header of output data that initiate software control operations.


Warning and alarm buses may be independent or shared between enclosures and may initiate an output from a digital I/O type module.



15-Pin Type D mounted on rear panel. Mating connector supplied.
