New USB DAQ unit with super-fast acquisition speed.

New from Audon Electronics is the USB-AD16F high speed USB based multifunction I/O unit with 16 opto-isolated analogue inputs, 2 analogue
output, 4 digital inputs and 4 digital outputs. Data can be acquired at
up to 250kHz rate at 16-bit resolution. A range of analogue and digital
expansion boards are also available. Supplied with a free copy of
NextView4-Live software for data acquisition and control and a wide
selection of Windows, MAC and Linux programming examples.

The USB-AD16f features 16-channel 16-bit analogue inputs with 4 programmable input ranges of ±10V, ±5V, ±2V, ±1V. With 250kHz sampling rate the USB-AD16f is perfectly suitable for dynamic applications such as noise and vibration measurements and impact testing. The galvanic isolation of the analogue inputs protects the measurement system and PC from accidents!

The 2 isolated analogue outputs are also at 16-bit resolution with a ±10V output range. For controlling and recording digital states 4 digital inputs and outputs each are available. An additional counter input allows pulse measurements.

All I/O are presented via two 37-way D-type sockets, one analogue and one digital. The user can connect to this directly or optional expansion boards are available. Also compatible with the MAL series of signal conditioning modules for connection of thermocouples, strain gauges etc. For use with USB 1.1 and 2.0 systems, up to 127 units can be connected to a single PC.

Drivers are available for Windows, MAC and Linux operating systems. The USB-AD16f is supplied with an Active-X component and comprehensive programming examples for use with most common programming languages. There are also VI for use with LabVIEW and there is a USB-AD16f component ion the ProfiLab programming package.

The USB-AD16f is also supplied with a copy of nextView4-Live data acquisition and control software. With NextView-Live, the user can acquire and analyse data, set analogue and digital outputs and read the status of the digital inputs. The user can create their own screens, with chart displays, text, alarm panels, output sliders etc.
