7/21/2005 - Measurement Computing Corporation announced the release of pin connector versions of two popular USB digitalI/O modules: USB-DIO24/37 and USB-DIO24H/37. The USB-DIO24/37 offers 24 bits of logic level digital I/O; the USB-DIO24H/37 offers 24 bits of DIO with high current (15mA source, 64 mA sink) output capability. Both units use 37-pin connectors and come without a case. The price and specifications of these modules are exactly the same as the screw terminal versions (USB-1024LS, USB-1024HLS).
The genesis of these products was, in part, customer feedback. According to Anthony Nygren, VP of Marketing, “Customers had been saying to us that they were very interested in the ease of connectivity and use of USB, but really didn’t want screw terminals, either because they had an existing application that used cables or because their new application was designed to use pin connectors. These products solve that dilemma.” Moreover, the addition of these two pin connector products to MCC’s USB digital I/O family allows DAQ users to select the connector they need without paying more for a device with multiple connector types.
In addition to the primary specifications described above, the two USB digital I/O products offer the following features:
Both products are USB 1.1 & 2.0 compatible, and are supported under Microsoft Windows 98SE/ME/2000/XP. Like all MCC products, the USB-DIO24/37 and USB-DIO24H/37 come with an industry-best Lifetime Warranty against manufacturing and material defects.
These new offerings provide USB digital I/O DAQ users with more choices at the same price. With these new products, users can now choose between screw terminals and standard pin connectors to select the connector type that best meets their needs, but they won’t have to pay extra to get multiple connector types. The pin connectors also make it easier to switch from PCI to USB in an existing application.
These pin connector products should be of particular interest to OEMs who need digital I/O and have been looking to save time and money and increase the ease of use of their systems by switching to USB, but were hesitant because they didn’t want to re-wire. The USB-DIO24/37 and USB-DIO24H/37 eliminate this concern because the pin-outs and connectors are the same as those used on equivalent PCI boards (PCI-DIO24, PCI-DIO24H).
All USB DAQ products from Measurement Computing ship with the following software, included in the price of the hardware:
