USB-Based Data Acquisition At A Breakthrough Price
The compact miniLAB 1008 unit from Measurement Computing enables external signals to be connected to a PC with all the flexibility of a removable USB device. Best of all, it’s only £120
The USB ports provided as standard on all new PCs have made connecting external devices a simple task, and now almost any external signal can be connected this way without breaking the bank, thanks to an innovative device from Measurement Computing. The £120 miniLAB 1008 is a compact interface for data acquisition which accepts eight single-ended or four differential 12-bit analogue inputs and sends the signals to a PC via the USB port.
In addition, the unit crams in a pair of 10-bit analogue outputs, a 32-bit external event counter, four digital I/O lines amongst the front-panel screw terminals, and a further 24 digital I/O lines through an industry-standard connector. The miniLAB 1008 is ideal for an enormous range of data acquisition tasks, and despite the tiny unit’s appearance, it can handle rugged industrial use. Add to this the advantages of USB connection, such as no need to open up the PC to install the hardware and not requiring a separate power supply, and the potential of the miniLAB 1008 is clear.
