Acquisition and analog to digital conversion (USB DAQ) of 4 voltages
The analog input module acquires 4 analog voltage or current channels and it is available for the input ranges: 0-5V, 0-10V and 0-24V as well as a current option with 0-20mA range.
Optionally, the USB Analog Input Modules are also available for the negative input voltages: -5 ~ +5V, -10 ~ 10V and -24 ~ 24V.
High precision USB DAQ Module
All analog input channels provide signal conditioning and have an accuracy of 0.25% and a resolution of 14 bit.
Typical application: 0-10V and 4-20mA Interfaces
The modules are typically used in order to measure DC voltages and currents or nearly static signals.
Especially the 0-10V option of the USB Analog Input Module is ideally suited to process signals generated by 0-10V outputs as they are wide-spread in the automation and building sector.
Wind sensors for example generate a 0-10V signal proportional to the wind speed. The USB Analog Input Module can measure this and forward the data to the connected computer.
In combination with the AO4 – USB Analog Output Module, which provides 4 analog voltage outputs, a reliable transmission of measurement data can be realized by using the 0-10V interface.
In order to build a high reliable long distance transmission line, it is recommended to use a 4-20mA interface instead of a voltage signal. The current output option of the USB Analog Output Module generates currents in the range of 4-20mA and eliminates the influence of the line during the transmission. In combination with the 0-20mA input module reliable and interference-free transmission lines can be realized.
