4/21/2005 - Measurement Computing Corporation announced the release of its new Measurement AdvantageTM brand, USB-based, high-voltage, high-current, digital I/O module. The USB-PDISO8 provides eight isolated 24-volt AC/DC inputs and eight 6-amp Form C relays at 240 VAC/28VDC contact ratings, with integral screw terminals all housed in a single all-metal enclosure. At $299, the USB-PDISO8 offers all this at a price that is 37% less expensive than the equivalent PCI-based alternative (PCI-PDISO8, shielded cable, and screw terminal enclosure). All of these advantages make the USB-PDISO8 a very attractive alternative to, or replacement for, PCI-based systems for high-voltage monitoring and control.
In addition to the high-performance specifications, the USB-PDISO8 offers the following features:
The USB-PDISO8 compliments the other Measurement Advantage high-voltage digital IO products: the USB-ERB08 and USB-ERB24, which allow users to control and monitor electromechanical relays, and the USB-SSR08 and USB-SSR24, which allow users to monitor and control industry standard solid-state relays. These five products make a strong argument for replacing PCI with USB for high-voltage applications: functional equivalence, lower cost, increased ease-of-use, and increased flexibility for re-deployment.
All Measurement Advantage products ship with the following free software:
