Key Highlights

  • 1 MS/s, 16-bit A/D converter
  • 8 differential or 16 single-ended analog inputs
  • Four 1 MS/s, 16-bit analog outputs
  • Simple expansion (via AI-EXP48 option) results in 32 DI/64 SE analog inputs
  • Any analog input can measure voltage or thermocouples—any TC type on any channel
  • Over-sampling mode, including line-cycle rejection for ultra stable TC and low-level voltage measurements, even in the presence of AC power line noise
  • 24 digital I/O lines
  • 4 counter inputs capable of measuring frequency, period, pulse width, or quadrature encoders up to 20 MHz
  • 2 timer outputs
  • Synchronous I/O, where all analog inputs, digital I/O and counter/timer I/O can occur synchronously, resulting in precise time correlation between all I/O
  • Low latency control outputs capable of responding to inputs in as fast as 2 µs

Measurement Computing's USB-1616HS-2 provides either 8 differential or 16 single-ended analogue inputs with 16-bit resolution. It offers seven software-selectable analogue input ranges of ±10 V, ±5 V, ±2 V, ±1 V, ±0.5 V, ±0.2 V, and ±0.1 V. Up to eight of the analogue inputs can be configured as differential thermocouple (TC) inputs. It also has four 16-bit, 1 MS/s analogue outputs with an output range of -10 V to +10 V.

The USB-1616HS-4 has 24 high-speed lines of digital I/O, two timer outputs, and four 32-bit counters. It provides up to 4 MS/s scanning on all digital input lines. Six banks of removable screw-terminal blocks provide connectivity to the analogue input channels, digital I/O lines, and counter/timer channels. All analogue inputs, digital I/O lines, and counter/timer I/O can operate synchronously.

An optional expansion module (AI-EXP48) quadruples the analogue input channels to 32DI/64SE.

The combination of the USB-1616HS-4 and Measurement Computing’s DAQ software suite gives you a complete data acquisition solution that will have you taking measurements in minutes. The device is fully USB plug and play and easy to use. A required external power supply is included with the unit.

The USB-1616HS-2 is a USB 2.0 high-speed device supported under popular Microsoft Windows® operating systems. It is fully compatible with both USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 ports.

The USB-1616HS-4 delivers outstanding performance and a wide variety of analogue, digital, and frequency I/O in one compact and low-cost package. The simple plug-in AI-EXP48 expansion module can quadruple the analogue input channel count of any of the USB-1616HS series modules.

"With reliability a key concern, we chose a name we could trust and the USB unit was a low-cost item that has proved very effective." Gordon Roxburgh, Volunteer Engineer, Brooklands Museum

"USB output has really made life easier on insutrumentation projects because you can simply swap from one laptop to another with minimal fuss. On this sort of operation that gives us extra confidence." Stephen Kemp, Manager, GBG Structural Services
