National Instruments has expanded its USB-9000 series of USB data acquisition (DAQ) devices with the release of eight new USB 2.0 Hi-Speed DAQ devices.
With sampling rates up to 800 kS/sec, the new USB 2.0 Hi-Speed devices include free interactive data-logging software for analysis that can log data and export it to spreadsheet applications such as Microsoft Excel.
With bus-powered, plug-and-play connectivity, the new devices add to the National Instruments USB-9000 family of USB DAQ devices, most of which include 250 Vrms channel-to-earth ground isolation for safety, noise immunity and high-common-mode voltage range.
By using these devices with the included NI-DAQmx driver software, engineers can develop applications using NI measurement tools for hardware configuration and testing, program them using the step-by-step DAQ Assistant, and use automatic code generation and custom channel scaling.
In addition, all NI USB DAQ devices now include free ready-to-run data logger software – valued at $295 – that engineers can use to log and view real-time and historical data and export data to Microsoft Excel.
The new National Instruments USB 2.0 DAQ devices include:
• USB-9211A: 4 Ch, 24-bit thermocouple input module
• USB-9215A: 4 Ch, 16-bit simultaneous-sampling analog input at 100 kS/sec per channel
• USB-9201: 8 Ch, 12-bit analog voltage input at 500 kS/sec
• USB-9221: 8 Ch, 12-bit high-voltage analog input at 800 kS/sec
• USB-9233: 4 Ch, 24-bit IEPE analog input module
• USB-9421: 8 Ch, 24 V digital input module
• USB-9472: 8 Ch, 24 V digital output module
• USB-9481: 4 Ch, high-current/high-voltage relay module
