Plug-and-play features on multi-sensor measurement module

A multi-sensor measurement module with USB port and plug-and-play connectivity has been unveiled by Data Translation. The module supports the direct connection of an array of different sensor types, from NTCs, thermocouples and RTDs to strain gauge sensors and load cells. The DT9829 is available with two, four or eight inputs, featuring separately programmable gain and sensor settings for each differential input channel. Voltage, current and resistance measurements are also supported.

With the included QuickDAQ software, all the settings are easy to configure for each channel and each connected sensor type; no additional external components or hardware configurations are necessary.

The high accuracy measurement module has a 24-bit A/D converter and achieves a sampling rate of up to 960Hz. In addition to the analog channels, the module provides four digital inputs supporting the connection of TTL, 12V or 24V levels. Four open collector outputs allow the switching of relays and other control tasks. All inputs and outputs have 500V isolation from the USB ground.

The multi-sensor module is available as a rugged connection box with screw terminals or as an OEM embedded board-level version. Running entirely on USB power, the measurement module is ideal for use as a portable device.

The module comes with the QuickDAQ data logging software. This application provides quick and easy data acquisition, display and logging functionality, and allows the export of data to an Excel file for more advanced analysis such as FFT (optional). The supplied software package also comprises 32/64 bit drivers for the standard Windows operating systems as well as a comprehensive range of software tools, such as interfaces for LabVIEW, MATLAB and .NET.
