The Labjack U12 features 8 single ended or 4 differential analogue inputs, 2 analogue outputs, 20 digital I/O including a 32 bit counter and watchdog timer. The LabJack U12 has a ±10V input range at 12-bit resolution. Differential channels can make use of the low noise precision amplifier with gains of 1,2,4,8,16,20, giving an input range down to ±1V. Data can be streamed to disk at 1kHz and a bursts mode allows over 4000 samples to de taken at a 8kHz rate. The two 0-10V analogue output channels can be updated at a 50Hz rate with 10-bit resolution. The LabJack has 20 digital I/O channels which can be individually configured as input or output. There is also one 32-bit counter available on the LabJack U12, capable of counting frequencies up to 1 MHz. The LabJack U12 also has a watchdog timer function available which can change the states of digital I/O if the LabJack does not successfully communicate with the PC within a specified time-out period. This function could be used to reboot the PC allowing for reliable unattended operation. All this from a simple plug-and-play USB device. The OEM version consists of a populated circuit board with the usual screw terminals replaced with DIL headers. It does not come with an enclosure, USB cable or a software CD. However, all software and a dimensional drawing is available from Audon's website.
