New LabJack UE9 is powerful Data Logger.
The New LabJack UE9 available from Audon Electronics
is a power-house of analogue and digital I/O. Whats more
it can connect to both USB AND Ethernet Systems.
The UE9 boast 14 analogue inputs, 2 analogue outputs and 23
digital I/O. The UE9 can connect to a host PC via a USB 1.1 or
2.0 interface or it can connect to a LAN via its Ethernet 10baseT
Each analogue input can be configured individually as unipolar
0-5 volts or bipolar ±5 volts. An internal PGA provides gains of
1, 2, 4, or 8 (unipolar ranges only at this time). Analogue input
resolution is user adjustable; 12-bits at max speed of 50kHz
increasing up to 16-bits at slower speeds. It is possible to
connect thermocouples directly to the UE9, if you don't require
great accuracy: a resolution of ±1 °C is achievable. The UE9
has an internal temperature sensor, which can be used for cold
junction compensation. There are two 12-bit analogue outputs
offering a 0-4.096V range.
The LabJack UE9 has 23 digital I/O channels which can be
individually configured as input, output-high, or output-low. 8
of these lines are called flexible digital I/O (FIO) and can be
software configured as up to 6 timers and 2 counters. The
timers are very flexible, providing options such as Pulse
Width Modulation output for motor control, pulse timing, and
quadrature input for motor applications. Up to 2 FIO can be
configured as 32-bit counters.
The UE9 is supplied with a free licensed copy of the DAQFactory
Express software. This software provides allows you to create
your own operator screens using up to 10 built-in components
such as chart displays, bar charts etc, allows datalogging and
you can even create simple automated control scripts. A collection
of DAQFactory applications are also provided to get you started,
showing how to acquire slow and high speed data, set the digital
I/O and also how to set up a PWM output channel. DAQFactory
Express can be upgraded to higher versions of DAQFactory if
you require addition functionality such as alarms and PID control.
Also provided are LabVIEW VI's and sample applications in
Visual Basic and C.
The UE9 has been designed for both experimental and industrial
use. It is rated for use over an industrial temperature range and
has built-in mounting fixtures. A selection of I/O are available at
screw terminals and all I/O are routed to side mounted D-type
connectors; A screw terminal board is available.
