Qualities of Q.series X

Q.series X is Gantner’s cutting-edge DAQ technology used globally for testing and monitoring applications in the mobility, aerospace, civil engineering, oil & gas, and renewable energy sectors.
Q.series X Overview
Engineered Flexibility

Intelligently designed from the inside out, Q.series X DAQ has the adaptability required to solve any modern engineering
problem without sacrificing performance or invalidating your investment.

Standalone Operation

Computer-independent measurement, data logging, and control with RT Linux operating system for reliable 24/7 operation of up to 64 connected I/O modules per controller.

Long-term Reliable DAQ

Q.series X is engineered exclusively based on proven industry standards, so you can take full advantage of Gantner Instruments
products’ best-in-class MTBF of more than 20 years.

Open Connectivity & APIs

Safe and reliable data exchange and interoperability through various read/write interfaces at the edge, desktop, and cloud level and modern APIs for device configuration and data stream access.

Benefits of choosing Q.series X

The capabilities of the Q.series X extend well beyond conventional DAQ; features like intelligent data filtering, data reduction algorithms, IIoT edge computing, and real-time control for automation make the Q.series X the most versatile data acquisition system available on the market.

The Q.series X controller, Q.station X, connects up to 64 mixed-signal measurement modules with up to 8th order filtering or up to 16 analog input channels sampling at 100 kHz and up to 32 virtual variables (e.g., RMS, Avg, Alarm, etc.). This large capacity per Q.series X DAQ system is possible due to its  5 UARTS (4 for data transfer, 1 for configuration) with a data transfer rate of 48 Mbaud per UART. The 5th UART is to enable reconfiguration during DAQ operation. 

But the flexibility does not stop there: Q.series X I/O modules feature front plates with fully customizable sensor connectors, increasing efficiency and safety for all applications. Q.series X is also intelligently designed to have interchangeable enclosures: DIN rail, Rugged & Portable, 1U/3U 19” racks, and be space-saving, where single wide controllers and modules are only 35mm wide on DIN rail. 

Best if you need:

  • Powerful signal conditioning
  • Higher ADC rates
  • Higher data rates
  • Customized connectors
  • Reconfiguration during operation

Q.series X DAQ products take the performance and long-term reliability of Gantner’s flagship DAQ series for over 10 years to the neXt level.

Building your Q.series X DAQ system

Form factor

Choose between Distributed and Flexible (bloxx), Portable and Compact (brixx), or Multi-channel Measuring Systems (raxx 3U & slimline). Q.series X measurement module front plates, connectors, and I/O cards are interchangeable between bloxx, brixx, and raxx (3U), so you can always adapt your system’s housing with minimal investment.


Select from a variety of Q.station X controllers differing in scalability, performance, additional interfaces, additional internal storage, PLC programmability, and physical size.

DAQ Modules

Choose from a wide variety of dedicated, multi-purpose, digital, or high-isolation measurement and I/O modules for all relevant signal types.
