PR-USB-230-SeriesAdept Scientific (Letchworth, Herts.) announces two new, low-cost, 16-bit, multifunction USB DAQ devices from Measurement Computing Corporation (Norton, Mass.). With sample rates up to 100 kS/s, the new USB-230 Series is now available from Adept Scientific in the UK.

Two models are included in the USB-230 Series. The USB-234 offers sample rates up to 100 kS/s, and the USB-231 up to 50 kS/s. Both models feature eight single-ended/four differential analogue inputs. There are eight digital I/O lines, with each digital channel software-selectable for both input and output.

The devices also feature a 32-bit counter input and two 16-bit analogue outputs; the latter can be updated at a rate up to 5 kS/s per channel. An external digital trigger input is software-selectable for rising edge or falling edge detection.

Removable screw-terminal connectors make signal connections easy. A high-speed Micro-USB cable is included and no external power source is needed.
