Selecting a Docking Station

Tanabyte's unique modular instrument design allows the customer a great deal of flexibility in configuring instruments for specific applications. All pneumatics and electronics needed to perform specific calibration or analysis functions are mounted on removable "Modules".

Tanabyte analysis and calibration Modules represent complete, self-contained systems, autonomously performing their designated gas analysis or calibration functions, but they require an enclosure, DC power and some means of interacting with them and viewing measurement data. The "Docking Station" provides all these functions in addition to other services, such as ventilation and networking.

At the present time, Tanabyte offers two Docking Station options, primarily distinguished by the number of Docking Ports supported. The Portable Docking Station is designed not only to be rugged and reliable for portable applications, but also requires very little space for bench-top applications. The Dual Docking Station may be bench mounted or rack mounted, requiring only 5¼” of rack space


The Dual Rack-Mountable Docking Station
The Dual Docking Station supports two independent modules in a rack mountable enclosure. Its 5¼” height takes up less rack space than other rack-mount instruments on the market, which are typically 7” or higher.

The Portable Docking Station

The Portable Docking Station is small, lightweight and rugged - ideal for field auditors and traveling service personnel. It is designed to accept any calibration or analysis module.

The small size of the Portable Docking Station also makes it ideal for bench mounted applications where space is at a premium.
