PICO TECHNOLOGY LAUNCHES ADC-20 & ADC-24 USB
DATA LOGGERS: THE ULTIMATE IN RESOLUTION AND
Pico Technology announces the latest additions to its data
acquisition range, the ADC-20 & ADC-24 USB Data Loggers.
With up to 24-bit resolution to detect small signal changes, 0.1%
accuracy for reliable readings and up to 16 channels, these Data
Loggers offer superb performance in a convenient and easy-to-use
package. The USB port provides easy connection and installation,
and eliminates the need for an external power supply.
The new Data Loggers provide a cost-effective solution for measuring
and recording voltage signals onto any PC or laptop (Windows 98SE
, ME, 2000, XP or later) with a USB port. When used with PicoLog®
data logging software, the units can sample up to 1 million readings
at selectable sampling rates, for real-time viewing or storage on
hard disk for later analysis. The ADC-20 offers 4 differential channels
for maximum accuracy, which can also be used as 8 single channels
for greater flexibility; while the ADC-24 has 8 differential channels
which can also be used as 16 single-ended channels. The inputs
have 7 programmable voltage ranges to interface with a wide range
of signals and sensors. All analogue inputs are overload protected
to +/? 30 volts, and differential inputs are galvanically isolated to
eliminate ground noise. Both units have +/- 5 volt outputs to power
sensors, and the ADC-24 additionally features 4 digital input/output
lines. Up to 4 units can be used at once with PicoLog, or with a
customer's own software and Pico's driver. An optional terminal
board is available that accepts sensor wires without the need for
soldering, and provides space for simple circuitry.
Alan Tong, Technical Director at Pico Technology comments "In the
ADC-20 and ADC-24, we have combined high-precision measurement
with the latest PC interface technology. These units are USB-enabled
and PC-based, for maximum convenience; and their high resolution
and accuracy put them at the leading edge of measurement instrumentation".
Both models are available immediately direct from Pico Technology
or any authorised Pico distributor. The Data Loggers start at £199,
with the optional terminal board available for an extra £25. Further
