Data Translation has announced the expansion of its line of Universal Serial Bus (USB) data acquisition modules. The new DT9805 and DT9806 multifunction modules now offer three robust features: wide dynamic range 100,000:1 (100dB), auto ranging that adjusts to measure the input signal as accurately as possible, and thermocouple support for measuring temperature.
The modules feature 500volt galvanic isolation that protects the PC from ground spikes and ensures a reliable stream of data. They support industry standard software and come with the DataAcq Software Developers Kit for Windows, and the Quick DataAcq. This menu-driven application lets you verify the operation of your Data Translation board, collect A/D data, display data to the screen, and save data to disk.
