The USB Analog Input Module acquires 4/8 voltage or current signals. It can e.g. be used to measure 0-10V or 4-20mA signals.

SKU: LCTR-AI4- Category:

Acquisition and analog to digital conversion (USB ADC) of 4/8 voltages or currents

The USB analog input module acquires up to 8 analog voltage or current channels. It is available for the input ranges: 0-5V, 0-10V and 0-24V as well as 0-20mA range.

Optionally, the USB ADC Module is 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 devices 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 made for interfacing and processing of 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 ADC 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.
