USB-1616HS
August 28, 2013
This is a great starter unit

I purchased this unit a few years ago to use with our NI LabView® software at our R&D company. At that point I was adding capability as well as consolidating functionality of some smaller older boxes into one piece of hardware. If the 1616HS was available when we first started with DAQ process I would have certain purchased it first. Some key features that are wonderful for our use: 1) Removable terminal blocks. In an R&D environment we have multiple machines that we capture data from, but don't want to dedicate hardware too permanently. With removable terminal blocks I can leave the machine wires terminated and simply unplug the 1616HS and take it to the next machine for the next experiment, saving hours of wiring and rewiring. 2) Extremely flexible input measurement ranges. We primarily use this unit in the differential mode witch allows us to measure everything from low voltage load cells to 'high" line voltage (stepped down, or course, or else you will be using the harsh environment warranty, which is also phenomenal and has saved my bacon). Setting measurement ranges is easily done from with in software, making it even easier to use this device on multiple projects. 3) Expandable. Once we reached the channel limit on the 1616HS we added an AI-EXP48 and picked up a slew of additional channels without additional configuration. Technical support for getting the most from the USB-1616HS has always been excellent as well. I highly recommend this unit for both starting your hardware collection as well as expanding and updating it.

Is there some option to attach a BNC breakout box so that BNC cables can be used for data acquisition instead of bare wires?

Answers

MCC does not offer a BNC termination option for the USB-1616HS-2. However, what we have used in the past are female BNC adapters with lead wires attached. If you Google the term you will find many places that offer such a cable. This allows you to use the lead wires to hook up to the screw terminals of the USB-1616HS-2..

If they are - what is the skew and jitter for the channels?

No, the USB-1616HS Series has only one A/D converter, which is shared across all AI channels.

This device is not mentioned on the Linux support page. Will it work at all? Maybe by adapting the driver for model 1616FS? Thanks.
