Cyth Systems Releases Circaflex 511 Control System for Smaller, Low-Cost and Out-of-the-Box Rapid Prototyping Solutions

Share Article

Cyth Systems announces the release of the newest member of the rapid deployment control platform family to provide life science customers with a complete prototyping solution with lower cost and smaller size.

The new Circaflex 511 control system provides an off-the-shelf solution to complex medical OEM applications. The embedded control system addresses the four common struggles in customer applications in the life science industry: time, flexibility, cost and size. Circaflex 511 includes prebuilt software in NI LabVIEW, signal conditioning and rapid prototyping features like screw terminal connectivity and status LEDs to save up to 75% of development time. Equipped with two ports for Circaflex expansion modules, Circaflex 511 adds the extra cushion of flexibility needed for prototyping. The control system is risk free with fuse protection, designed for easy troubleshooting, and the smallest in its class to accommodate portability options for life science applications.

All Circaflex products designed by Cyth Systems are based on National Instruments Single-Board RIO hardware and LabVIEW software. Circaflex 511 is based on the newest NI sbRIO-9606 module and includes prebuilt code using LabVIEW in the Circaflex dashboard software for instant I/O interaction. Circaflex 511 encompasses all of the channels on the field-programmable gate array (FPGA) for immediate control and reading of devices and input signals. Once the I/O is defined, the screw terminal connections provide simple and generic interfaces to a wide variety of I/O. To reduce the time and cost associated with troubleshooting, the included status LEDs provide engineers with immediate indication of all digital I/O, fuses, FPGAs, real-time OSs (RTOS) and user LEDs. As product requirements change, the two slots for Circaflex expansion modules keep options open without having to change or redesign the control system. The growing library of Circaflex expansion modules are only one square inch in size and include standard signal modules and application specific modules like SSRs, reed relays, RTDs and stepper drivers.

From the head start given by the wide set of features, the low cost, and the added options for flexibility in such a small size, the new Circaflex 511 control system is equipped and ready to tackle any medical OEM application for an out-of-the-box prototyping experience.

“The new Circaflex 511 control platform was carefully designed to help our customers focus on revolutionizing their products, while we focus on saving them time, risk, and cost throughout the development process,” said Joe Spinozzi, Chief Operations Officer at Cyth Systems. Medical OEMs using Circaflex 511 will experience a great reduction in cost and invaluable amounts of time for troubleshooting and errors and prevent major setbacks like redesigns for the control system.
