The most advanced USB counter/timers we’ve seen

Measuring time-related data and counting events are basic to countless data acquisition applications, and they often fulfil critical timing functions as components of complex measurement systems. They’re simple in concept and specific in function, but essential in so many products and systems today.

Our friends at Measurement Computing, those developers of DAQ devices that match the best in industry in everything except price, have just come up with a couple of USB counter/timers with just about the most advanced functionality we’ve ever seen in such devices, yet they’re surprisingly inexpensive. High-level input modes include totalise, period measurement, pulse-width measurement, and timing measurement. Timer output channels can operate continuously or for a specified pulse count, with duty cycle and period changeable on the fly. Counter and digital channels can also be scanned synchronously. Flexible edge, level, direction and debounce settings allow the counters to adapt optimally to user signals.

You can choose between models with 4 or 8 counter I/Os. They offer high-speed pulse counting up to 48 MHz input frequency. Resolution is programmable up to 64 bits per counter, with an aggregate scan rate of 8 MB/sec. Four independent PWM timer outputs and 8 digital I/O are also provided.

What do our Customers say about us?

At 13-years old, my daughter’s research manuscript has been accepted for publication in a top tier peer-reviewed Environmental Science journal and OriginPro 8.6 will allow her to export the graphs in a wide variety of formats which can meet any publisher’s requirements. Kudos to OriginLab for designing innovative and intuitive software that can span the needs of both a burgeoning young scientist like my daughter to a PhD expert in their field. It is hard to imagine that other products offer this extraordinary level of user versatility.

Origin lets you zoom in on an an area of the plot easily without having to rescale manually. I also love the data reader feature where you can follow a line or curve and view the exact coordinate values. Thanks for an awesome product!

Rebecca, R&D Chemist 3, Champion Technologies

I have to thank you again for your help. The support level you have given gives me good confidence in using the product, knowing that there are solutions to problems that are not necessarily easy (or economic) for you to implement, but give the customer a working solution.
