USB Data Acq System Features Simple Expansion

DATAQ Instruments has announced the release of its model DI-2108-P USB data acquisition (DAQ) system with 16-bit ADC resolution, programmable gain and ChannelStretch technology. The model DI-2108-P provides eight analog input channels each with 2.5-, 5- and 10-volt unipolar and bi-polar programmable measurement ranges. DATAQ Instruments di2108-product-photo-press-releaseThe DI-2108-P also provides 7 digital ports, each configurable as an input or a switch. Two ports can be programmed as counter and frequency measurement inputs. The instrument’s maximum sampling throughput rate is 160 kHz.

The ChannelStretch feature of the DI-2108-P makes channel expansion as easy as adding another device. Plug a second device into a computer and double the channel count of both analog and digital channels. Using USB hubs, plug up to sixteen devices into a single PC for a maximum count of 128 analog and 112 digital channels. And all of them are acquired synchronously at a maximum sample throughput rate of at least 480 kHz. DI-2108-P software support includes ready-to run WinDaq data acquisition software, .Net class, ActiveX controls and a fully documented communication protocol to deploy the instrument on any platform. The unit is priced at $349.
