Measurement Computing Unveils Low-Cost Analog Output USB Devices

3/28/2006 - Measurement Computing Corporation announced the release of three low-cost, 16-bit high-drive analog output USB devices. These new products were expressly engineered to incorporate many user-suggested features that make the product line unique to the DAQ industry.

The USB-3110, USB-3112, and USB-3114 have integrated high-drive voltage outputs, eliminating the need for external high-drive amplifiers. The USB-3100 series’ proprietary architecture virtually eliminates dead-band (unresponsive) codes. In addition, the product line is factory calibrated to be out-of-the-box ready for system deployment.

Bill Kennedy, MCC Vice President of Sales and Marketing, remarked, “Customers have enjoyed our low-cost USB multifunction DAQ devices. We are excited to offer the USB-3100 series—a line of dedicated low-cost, high-drive analog output devices in the same convenient packaging. Not only were we able to fulfill our customers requirements for a low-cost analog output device, we were able to engineer additional features to save our valued customers further time and money. The USB-3100 series should be strongly considered for anyone performing PC control.”

All products in the USB-3100 line are fully compatible with both USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 ports, and are supported under Microsoft® Windows® 2000 and XP operating systems. Each of the voltage outputs is capable of sinking/sourcing up to 40 mA (maximum) of load current. A bidirectional synchronization pin allows users to update the DAC outputs simultaneously on multiple devices.

The USB-3110 provides four channels of analog voltage output, eight digital I/O connections, and one 32-bit event counter. The USB-3112 has eight analog voltage outputs, and the USB-3114 has sixteen. All other features are the same.

At 5.0 inches wide, by 3.4 inches long, by 1.4 inch high, the USB-3100 series modules are just large enough to make connecting field wiring easy, yet small enough to fit on even the most crowded bench. These products ship with a USB cable, a 5-volt, 2-amp AC power adapter, and the following software:

Measurement Computing Corporation is the market leader in the design and manufacture of low-priced, computer-based, test and measurement hardware and software.
