It effectively turns them into PC-based data acquisition units that can operate independently or, when connected to a LAN, as parts of a larger system. Units are available with sampling rates from 200kS/s up to 5GS/s, resolutions of 8, 14 and 16 bit, bandwidths up to 1.5 GHz and from 2 to 16 fully synchronous channels. The units are normally controlled via Ethernet, however, installing the Embedded Server option allows fully independent operation.

The Embedded Server option combines a powerful CPU, a freely accessible SSD, more memory and a remote software development access method using standard Linux remote shell (ssh). This enables an open platform where the user can run their own software while, at the same time, being still be connected via LAN for remote access. The units can work autonomously collecting and analyzing data for hours or even days on end. The results can be stored on the internal SSD and then, whenever needed, the important information can be accessed via Ethernet. The digitizerNETBOX can even be setup to send notification emails or alerts over the LAN, or offload stored data as soon as it is connected again to the network.
