Original Press Release:
IOtech Introduces the Industry's Lowest Priced 16-bit, 200-kHz Data Acquisition Boards
Save up to 33% compared with National Instruments and Measurement Computing's lowest priced PCI boards
CLEVELAND, OH, January 2005 - The hotly-contested PCI daq board market has a new low-price leader in the sweet-spot of today's market - multifunction 16-bit/200-kHz boards. IOtech's new DaqBoard/500(TM) series sets a new price/performance benchmark at just $199 in 5-piece quantities ($249 single-quantity price). These new boards present a significant cost savings to OEMs and end-users looking for low cost PCI data acquisition. They are priced at up to 33% less than the lowest priced 16-bit competitors.
There are two DaqBoard/500 series boards available. The DaqBoard/505(TM) offers sixteen channels of 16-bit analog inputs, 24 digital I/O lines, and one counter input. The DaqBoard/500(TM) also provides two waveform-capable 16-bit analog outputs. High performance features found on higher cost PCI boards including waveform capable outputs and DMA bus mastering are standard on the DaqBoard/500 series.
The DaqBoard/500 series is the latest addition to IOtech's extensive PCI board line (daqboard.com).
DaqBoard/500 series features:
· 16-bit, 200-kHz A/D converter
· 16 single ended or 8 differential analog inputs (software selectable per channel)
· 24 digital I/O lines
· Two 16-bit analog outputs with 100-kHz waveform capability (DaqBoard/500)
· One counter input, two timer outputs
· DMA bus mastering for continuous, high-speed data streaming, without CPU intervention
· No potentiometers, jumpers, or switches; 100% digital calibration
· Up to four DaqBoards per PC in any combination for channel expansion up to 64 analog input channels and 96 digital I/O signals
· Free API library (Windows® NT/2000/XP) for Visual Basic® and C++ and included DaqCOM(TM) ActiveX/COM-based programming tools
· LabVIEW® drivers included
· DaqView(TM) software support (optional) for immediate, Out-of-the-Box(TM) board setup, data acquisition, and signal verification
Included with each DaqBoard are comprehensive drivers for all popular Windows-based environments, including Visual Basic, C/C++, ActiveX/COM, and LabVIEW. This support is complemented by over 100 ready-to-use sample program examples supporting rapid application development. Optional Out-of-the-Box(TM) DaqView/500(TM) software provides immediate board setup, data acquisition, and data display, without the need for programming.
