Original Press Release
New USB Counter / Timer DAQ Devices from Measurement Computing
Press release date: May 20, 2014
NORTON, Mass. – Measurement Computing Corporation, the value leader in data acquisition, today announced the release of two high-speed USB Counter / Timer DAQ devices available with four or eight counter I/O.
The USB-CTR Series feature high-speed pulse counting with a 48 MHz maximum input frequency. Resolution is programmable up to 64-bits, with an aggregate scan rate of 8 MB/sec.
These new devices offer some of the most advanced counter / timer functionality available in USB DAQ today. Supported high-level input modes include totalize, period measurement, pulse-width measurement, and timing measurement. Four independent PWM timer outputs and 8 digital I/O are also provided. Timer output channels can operate continuously or for a specified pulse count, with duty cycle and period changeable on-the-fly. Counter and digital channels can also be scanned synchronously. Flexible edge, level, direction, and debounce settings allow the counters to better adapt to user signals.
USB-CTR Series features:
-- 4 or 8 counter I/O
-- 48 MHz maximum input frequency
-- Programmable resolution up to 64-bits per counter
-- Aggregate scan rate of 8 MB/s
-- Supports the following counter input modes:
-- Period measurements
-- Pulse-width measurements
-- Timing measurements
-- Debounce filter circuitry
-- Four PWM timers
-- Eight digital I/O
-- Synchronous high-speed reads of digital and counter inputs
Software options include comprehensive support for Visual Studio® and Visual Studio® .NET, DASYLab®, and NI LabVIEW™.
The four channel USB-CTR04 is priced at $359, and the eight channel USB-CTR08 is priced at only $429.
