Product Reviews




Greetings, Will these drivers allow me to control a MiniLab 1008 from my Raspberry Pi? I followed Jasper's instructions, but I didn't see any test scripts for the 1008. Thanks

Answers

Yes, the Linux drivers do support the minilab-1008. However, because of recent updates to our Linux support the miniLAB-1008 was overlooked and not updated. I notified the developer and he has completed the update for the minilab-1008 and added the test script to the most recent Linux driver support of MCCLIBUSB.1.17.tgz

Or maybe any of the existing drivers could be used with USB-230?

Hello Yury - No Linux driver is currently expected/planned for the USB-230 series. None of the other existing Linux drivers are adaptable to the USB-230 series.

Yes. Both the USB-1608FS-Plus and the USB-ERB08 are currently supported under Linux. You can review a list of supported MC hardware and download the drivers from the following link: http://www.mccdaq.com/daq-software/Linux-Support.aspx

I see the newer version of this board (USB-2627) is listed as having Linux support but we would prefer to have the variable input gain and synchronous digital lines that appear to be only on the USB-2527.

The USB-2600 and USB-2500 Series differ greatly in their internal architecture, and therefore the 3rd party USB-2600 Series Linux driver can not by migrated to the USB-2500 Series. No Linux driver is known to exist for the USB-2500 Series.

Does this driver support the USB-2416-4A0 model too? I see that it supports the 2416 model only. Thanks!

Answers

Hello Chris, Thank you for bringing that to our attention. Yes, the current Linux driver does in fact support both the USB-2416 and our USB-2416-4AO. I will have the USB-2416-4AO added to our list of supported hardware.

Answers

Hello papanoel6236, Due to its complex architecture the USB-2537 or for that matter any of the USB-2500 Series do not have Linux drivers available. However, we do have a similar board that may work for your application. The USB-2637 has many of the features of the USB-2537 and has Linux drivers available for download. Please take a minute to review the specifications here: http://www.mccdaq.com/usb-data-acquisition/USB-2637.aspx Please feel free to contact us if you have any additional questions.

Hi I've noticed that for a while the new USB devices I'm receiving info on are not being listed on the Linux page. Is the Linux support (DAQFlex etc) no longer being supported? The device I'm interested in currently is the USB-230-OEM.

Answers

Regrettably, no new products will be added to our DAQFlex library. Support for existing hardware will continue. For an easier out-of-the-box Linux experience, we recommend using the MCC 3rd party drivers. Please see http://www.mccdaq.com/daq-software/Linux-Support.aspx for more details. Currently, the USB-230-OEM series is not supported by our Linux drivers. The hardware architecture of the USB-230-OEM series does not lend itself easily to Linux development. For that reason we have chosen to hold off with Linux development. For a low cost 16 bit DAQ device with Linux support, I would recommend one of our USB-1608G series products. Please see http://www.mccdaq.com/usb-data-acquisition/USB-1608G-Series.aspx

There are a Linux driver for the USB 2600 series. Is it possible to adapt this for the USB 2527? (The driver test could recognize the board with few modifications, but the FPGA file is probably not what the USB 2527 expect ... )

Hello Matt - The 3rd party developer, who has written many Linux drivers for other MCC models, is expected to develop a driver for the USB-2600 series. Expected availability is sometime in Q1 2014.

Answers

The USB-1608G and USB-1608GX differ only in the maximum A/D rate. So the same driver code/examples can be used. There are three avenues to using the USB-1608G series in Linux. MCC provides technical support only on the first of these three: 1) The DAQFlex DLL can be used with C#/VB.NET code via the MONO layer. 2) For C programmers, instead of using the DOT.NET DLL, you can obtain a 3rd party driver from our website that is supported by that 3rd party. 3) The third option is the most complex, which is to create your own driver using the open source documentation from MCC, along with an example posted on our Knowledgebase demonstrating using LIBUSB from C.
