Data Acquisition Modules Run On USB Power
Omega Engineering offers the OM-DAQ-USB-2401 series of USB 2.0 full-speed thermocouple/voltage input data acquisition modules. The new standalone modules can draw power from either a USB port or an optional external power supply.
The OM-DAQ-USB-2401 features user-programmable voltage inputs that range from ±30 mV to ±10V, full scale. It features eight differential inputs or 16 single-ended analog inputs, while 1,000 samples per second can be taken and divided across all active channels.
Fully compatible with both USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 ports, the modules are user programmable for type J, K, T, E, R, S, B, N thermocouples or voltage input and all configurable options (including individual channel input type and range) are software programmable.
The compact, modular packaging is suited for a variety of applications. All analog input channels can be measured sequentially at about 1 ms per channel. In addition, software and drivers for custom programming, as well as hardware for benchtop, DIN rail or wall mounting, are all included.
