Firetail DAQ  announced the release of the Measurement Computing 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 performance with synchronous and concurrent voltage input, waveform output, counter input, quadrature encoder input and digital I/O in one package.

Based on Measurement Computing’s USB-1616HS series, the USB-1616HS-BNC data acquisition device provides the added security and convenience of BNC connectors.

Unique to the USB-1616HS series is a low-latency, high 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. It is at least 1,000 times faster than other USB DAQ products that rely on the PC for decision making.

The USB-1616HS-BNC data acquisition device from Firetail DAQ offers extensive trigger options, ranging from an analogue trigger with 1 µs maximum 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
  • Pre- and post-trigger
The features of the USB-1616HS-BNC data acquisition device include:

Analogue inputs through BNC connectors:

  • 16 differential analogue inputs
  • 16-bit resolution
  • 1 MS/s throughput rate
  • 7 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 analog outputs
  • 16 digital I/O bits with a 4 MHz sample/update rate
  • 4 counter inputs capable of measuring frequency, period, pulse width or quadrature encoders up to 20 MS/s
  • 2 timer outputs

All analogue inputs, analogue 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 data acquisition device is supplied with software, including TracerDAQ, a full-featured data logging, viewing and analysis application; Universal Library; UL for LabVIEW and InstaCal installation, calibration and test utility.
