New plug and play, high-precision potentiometer input module launched by Mantracourt
Mantracourt, a leader in high performance measurement electronics, announces the launch of an accurate and reliable high-performance potentiometer input module. The new DSCUSB-PT plug and play USB device has been designed to convert resistance-based input into digital output and, together with Mantracourts DSCUSB Toolkit software, allows for quick and easy measurements.
This new introduction to Mantracourts range of signal converters can be used with resistance based sensors to indicate position, rotation, angle and depth and is particularly suited to applications such as displacement measurement and angular measurement that require high accuracy. The DSCUSB-PT connects directly to a PC and, using the intuitive Toolkit software, data can be extracted from the linear potentiometer input.
As well as being easy to set up and use, the DSCUSB-PT is extremely accurate featuring 7-point linearization and optional temperature compensation. The output is factory calibrated from between 0 100% but this can be scaled by the user or a systems integrator to output engineering units. For added flexibility, Mantracourts 24 channel logging software enables up to 24 DSCUSB devices to be monitored and data logged. A useful additional feature enables OEM level configuration and calibration to be saved and restored.
To complement the DSCUSB-PT, Mantracourt offers its free DSCUSB Toolkit software. This software for Windows enables users to carry out a host of actions via an intuitive and icon-based navigation system. With simple to follow instructions and highlighted interactive elements, users can configure, save and restore settings, calibrate input and output and log data to a CSV file. The DSCUSB Toolkit also features a real-time, scrolling, auto scaling trend chart that holds and displays up to 10,000 points. This allows engineers to monitor input signals in real time and gives them the information needed to adjust data rates and filters, if necessary.
Speaking about the new DSCUSB-PT, Jonathan Purdue, Sales Manager at Mantracourt says: This is a valuable, new addition to our signal converter range. As well as being easy to configure and use, its compact and plug and play design means it is extremely flexible.
