The IBIV-8 also offers unparalleled flexibility allowing users to perform a variety of measurements in a single module.

Offering eight input channels, the IBIV-8 reduces the cost per channel by as much as 38% versus existing modules and competitive offerings. Available with 10-pin Lemo or D-Sub connectors, the IBIV-8 simplifies wiring, and built-in hardware-based counter and timer functions eliminate the need for additional hardware.

Product features include:

  • Simultaneous sampling at up to 100 kS/s/ch
  • 5 measurement ranges (+/- 10 V, +/- 2 V, +/- 200 mV, +/- 50 mV, and +/- 20 mV)
  • Full 24-bit resolution across selected measurement range
  • High accuracy (+/- 0.03% for 10V, 2V and 200 mV attenuator settings)
  • Supports 120, 350, 500, and 1000 bridge resistances
  • Software selectable Internal ¼ and ½ bridge completion (120 and 350) and shunt calibration
