New 16-channel, multifunction USB DAQ device features BNC inputs
Adept Scientific (Letchworth, Herts) announces the release of Measurement Computing’s (Norton, Massachusetts) USB-1616HS-BNC, a new 1 MS/s, 16-bit multifunction USB data acquisition device with 16 BNC differential analogue inputs. The USB-1616HS-BNC delivers outstanding performance with synchronous and concurrent voltage input, waveform output, counter input, quadrature encoder input and digital I/O in one package.
Based on the popular USB-1616HS series, the USB-1616HS-BNC provides the added security and convenience of BNC connectors.
Unique to the USB-1616HS series is a low-latency, highly deterministic control output mode that operates independently of the PC. In this mode digital, analogue and timer outputs can respond to analogue, digital and counter inputs as fast as 2 µs; at least 1,000 times faster than other USB DAQ product that rely on the PC for decision making.
The USB-1616HS-BNC offers extensive trigger options, ranging from an analogue trigger with 1 µs max latency, to multi-channel triggering, where any combination of analogue, digital and counter input channels can be combined to initiate the trigger. Other trigger modes include digital pattern, level, edge, inside/outside window and pre- and post-trigger.
Analogue Inputs via BNC connectors
- 16 differential analogue inputs
- 16-bit resolution
- 1 MS/s throughput rate
- Seven programmable input ranges from ±100 mV to ±10 V, full scale
- Over-sampling mode, including line-cycle rejection for low-level voltage measurements, even in the presence of AC power line noise.
Analogue Outputs and Digital I/O via 37-pin DSUB female connector
- Two 16-bit, 1 MS/s analogue outputs
- 16 digital I/O bits with a 4 MHz sample/update rate
- Four counter inputs capable of measuring frequency, period, pulse width or quadrature
- encoders up to 20 MS/s
- Two timer outputs.
All analogue inputs and outputs, digital I/O and counter/timer I/O can occur synchronously, resulting in precise time correlation among all I/O. Low latency control outputs are capable of responding to inputs in as fast as 2 µs. The USB-1616HS-BNC ships with an impressive array of software, including TracerDAQ, a full-featured data logging, viewing and analysis application; Universal Library; drivers for DASYLab and; InstaCal installation, calibration and test utility – powerful software solutions for programmers and non-programmers alike.

Adept are continuing to be the most reliable and effective of all the technical helpline staff that I encounter.MD, Worcs, UK
The training session has been invaluable. Your expertise and your patience are exemplary. It cannot be easy to teach a 75 year old new tricks but you have done so with the utmost understanding. The software is extraordinarily powerful: you have explained how to use it in simple and understandable terms.SF
Thank you so much for all your help this morning. Endnote works just fine now and I’m enjoying working on this editorial. I am almost tempted to add your name as a co-author, but the journal won’t allow it! Thanks again.DR RD
Bob worked tirelessly over many hours (and days!) to try to resolve the issue. His efforts were truly appreciated on my behalf. He was polite, caring and nothing was too much trouble. Many, many thanks Bob.JO
