DCA31 is a very small, rugged vibration data collector and real
time analyzer with in-place balancing capability.
Coupled with AdvancedALERT® or ExpertALERT , the
DLI Watchman® DCA-31 provides complete machine condition
monitoring data collection capabilities. Its lightweight and
small form factor means that it is easy to use. The DCA-31
incorporates a high-resolution screen for easy reading and
route navigation as well as comprehensive data presentation
The DCA-31 comes standard with enough memory onboard to
load large surveys that include literally hundreds of machines.
Its enclosure is well sealed so you don't need to worry about
using it in wet or dirty environments. In addition, The DCA-31
offers CSA International Certification for Class I, Division
2, Groups A, B, C and D Hazardous Environments.
Latest Vibration Technology
The DCA-31 incorporates the latest advances in analog and
digital electronics, including high speed digital signal processing
(DSP) and the industry's highest resolution 20-bit Sigma-Delta
A/D converter to provide both speed and accuracy in the data
collection process. The DCA-31 is available in single or two
channel configurations. Should you decide to upgrade your
collector later, only a firmware upgrade is required to enable
its 2-channel capability. Its Windows CE operating system
allows the user to add additional functionality as new application
software becomes available. The instrument's intuitive user
interface allows easy navigation of test points in both route
and off-route modes.
The DCA-31 also has optional in-place machine balancing
capabilities that can be added to either the 1 or 2-channel
model at any time.
The DCA-31 has an instantaneous power-up that returns the
display to the last test location/screen displayed prior to
power-down. This enables a user to switch off the instrument
at any point in a survey, move to the next point and then
power-up the instrument to continue data collection. This
saves the operator time in not having to needlessly navigate
through the survey after a power-down/up.
The DCA-31 can be integrated with a number of condition
monitoring systems, including ExpertALERT, AdvancedALERT®,
DLI Watchman® DCX, and DCX Online systems.

The DCA-31 was built tough to withstand severe plant environments
such as those found in pulp and paper, petrochemical, mining
and marine. Its sealing is rated IP 65 meaning it is both
splash and dust proof. It is drop tested to 6 feet and will
operate in ambient temperatures from -10 to +60 degrees-C.
