Jun 22, 2011 Powered by external 9-28 Vdc power supply, PhidgetMotorControl 1065 lets user control direction, velocity, and acceleration of one DC motor. Unit provides continuous motor current of 5 A, update rate of 42 updates/sec, and response time of 30 msec. Motor PWM frequency varies with motor speed. Operating from 0-70°C, controller includes over-current, over-voltage, and over-temperature protection to ensure board and motor are not damaged.
Frequency Counter works with analog/digital signals.Phidgets, Inc. Calgary, AB T2M3R7
May 25, 2011 Delivering plug-and-play functionality, 1054 - PhidgetFrequencyCounter can be used to measure frequency of analog or digital signal. It counts events from analog signal over time and calculate frequency from it. Able to count logic level or signal centered around 0 V, product can also count signals with different ground as long as they are within common mode range (±10 V). Dual channels enable sensing of 2 different inputs, and measurable frequency is accurate to 0.25% up to 1 MHz.
USB Board offers interface for 4 load cells or sensors.Phidgets, Inc. Calgary, AB T2M3R7
May 23, 2011 With PhidgetBridge 1046, users can connect up to 4 un-amplified Wheatstone Bridge based sensors, such as strain gauges, compression load cells, and pressure sensors. Unit supports specific data rates from 1-125 samples/sec and lets users adjust gain from 1-128. Providing up to 465 mA to Bridge outputs, PhidgetBridge 1046 features USB voltage range of 4.5-5.25 Vdc, USB current of 500 mA, and 35 mA USB quiescent current.
I/O Interface Kit enhances integration with small package.Phidgets, Inc. Calgary, AB T2M3R7
Apr 18, 2011 Intended for OEMs and system integrators, 1010 - PhidgetInterfaceKit 8/8/8 Mini-Format delivers all 1018 - InterfaceKit 8/8/8 functionality from DIP-36 package that can be inserted in socket or soldered to user's own board. It lets users connect devices to any of 8 analog inputs, 8 digital inputs, and 8 digital outputs, providing generic means to interface end-user system with various devices. Users can program Phidgets via API supported under Windows® and Linux and write programs in various programming languages.
Dongle-Sized Interface Kit offers analog inputs and DIO.Phidgets, Inc. Calgary, AB T2M3R7
Apr 07, 2011 Completely plug-and-play, 1011 - PhidgetInterfaceKit 2/2/2 provides 2 analog inputs, 2 digital inputs, and 2 digital outputs on dongle-sized board that supports USB voltage from 4.75-5.25 Vdc. Respective update rates for analog inputs and DIO lines are 1,000 and ~125 samples/sec. Solution comes with custom 12-wire cable, where wires 1/2/3 and 7/8/9 end with female connector designed to take Phidget sensor cable; other wires are loose. Users decide OS and computer language.
USB GPS Module offers plug-and-play functionality.Phidgets, Inc. Calgary, AB T2M3R7
Mar 09, 2011 Delivering 10 position updates per second, plug-and-play 1040 PhidgetGPS provides position (longitude, latitude, altitude); heading; velocity; time and date; and satellite fix availability. Position accuracy is 2.5 m CEP, velocity accuracy is 0.1 m/sec, and timing accuracy is 300 nsec. Max altitude and velocity (Standard COCOM Limits) are greater than 18,000 m @ greater than 515 m/sec. GPS sensivity offers -161 dBm tracking and less than 1 sec re-acquisition (hot start).
Digital Controller accommodates of 0-10 V devices.Phidgets, Inc. Calgary, AB T2M3R7
Mar 09, 2011 Intended for control of 0-10 V devices, 1002 - PhidgetAnalog 4-Output can produce -10 to +10 V at up to 20 mA on any or all of its 4 channels. Output voltage resolution is 4.8 mV (12 bit), and respective output impedance values with channel enabled and not enabled are 0.5 and 4k ohms. Along with capacitive load stability of 4,000 pF, characteristics include 4.5-5.25 Vdc USB voltage range, 300 mA max USB current, and 55 mA USB quiescent current. Terminal block supports 16-26 AWG wires.
IR Thermometer offers non-contact measurement from -70 to 380°C.Phidgets, Inc. Calgary, AB T2M3R7
Feb 16, 2011 Designed to connect to computer's USB port, 1045 - PhidgetTemperatureSensor IR provides 10° field of view and object temperature range of -70 to +380°C with 0.02°C resolution, ±0.5°C accuracy at room temperature, and temperature update speed of 32 msec. Factory-calibrated unit is suited for sensing and measuring surface temperatures without surface contact, alarming for over-temperature conditions, human or animal presence detection, and body temperature measurement.
