Great DAQ. Great Price. Should support Python wrapper, though.

If you need something simple, cheap and easy to get up and running, this is a great choice. MC needs to be careful though, as a lot of free or low cost solutions are starting to become available and this DAQ may suffer from the innovators dilemma. While I found an open source python wrapper and manipulated it for my needs, it would be great if MC supported python. The solution I cam up with works really well and python is what everyone is migrating to.

I am a bit confused with how the external pacer clock signal is used while acquiring 2 channels of data. I am using a USB-201. Using the onboard clock at 50kHz my signals looks fine. Repeating that with an external 50kHz clock, I seem to be sampling at the wrong speed. Is there more to the external clock than a simple swap? I ultimately need to synch to external rotating equipment, hence the use of the external clock to stay in angular synch with a shaft.

A pressure sensor or transducer typically converts pressure into an analog voltage signal. The USB-201 supports a fixed +- 10 volt analog input range. So a compatible pressure sensor will support an output voltage somewhere in the +-10 volt range.

Normally, I am have used current and voltage probes directly to monitor these currents and voltages on oscilloscope(Not from sensors). Then I used the FFT property of oscilloscope. Currently, I don't have these probes due to their cost. Can I collect the data from these sensors and then manipulate them to be used in FFT analysis?

The USB-201 supports 8 single ended +-10 volt input ranges. Voltage signals within a +-10 volt range are directly compatible. All other signals (current) will require signal conditioning of some sort. For data analysis, I would recommend our DASYLab BASIC graphical programming language. DASYLab BASIC has built in FFT analysis modules that would be perfect for your application.

Answers

The USB-201 does not support USB to field wiring isolation, therefore, the grounds are tied to the USB connectors ground pin. But if I may expand the scope of my answer in that the USB-201 uses a multi-layer PCB. For the purpose of better noise immunity each ground has its own plane but eventually come to a common point. It is not recommended that you mix your ground connections. The AGND is reserved for your analog input signals and the GND reserved for all other ground connections. Connecting all your grounds together could cause ground loops which could introduce noise and signal error. For detailed information on proper signal connections. Please refer to our “Signal Connection Guide”. http://www.mccdaq.com/support/DAQ-Signal-Connections.aspx

Answers

Hello BigRockr - Thank you for your inquiry. When I have a discussion about a counter gate I think of an input that allows you to control when the counter is enabled and when it is disabled. In most cases it’s an external input that requires a TTL signal for control and when the gate is pulled high, the counter is enabled and when its pulled low the counter is disabled. Unfortunately, there is no gate control for the USB-201 counter. The event counter when loaded with a value of “0” will increment by one for each pulse it detects. The counter can be “zeroed” by calling the cLoad() function and reloading it with the value of “0”. If you need a counter with a “Gate” function then please look at our USB-CTR04 or USB-CTR08 counter products at the following link: http://www.mccdaq.com/usb-data-acquisition/USB-CTR-Series.aspx Either of these USB-CTR models will support your requirements.

Thank you for your inquiry. The USB-201 is a voltage based DAQ device and uses a 12 bit A/D converter. The USB-201 supports a fixed +- 10 volt input range. In order to read a current signal you would have to provide some signal conditioning to convert the current to a voltage. The other important factor is that the USB-201 uses a 12 bit A/D converter and would not be capable of providing enough resolution to read a 0.1 to 100 nA signal.

Thank you for your inquiry. The USB-201 supports 8 analog input channels with an aggregate sample rate of 100K. The USB-201 also supports 8 digital I/O bits with a maximum update rate that can vary between 33 to 4000 port read/writes. With that said, DAQami only supports analog inputs and can sample all channels at the max sample rate of 100 kS/s divided by the number of channels. If you need to sample both analog and digital inputs then you can use TracerDAQ which is also a free software package offered by MCC. When using TracerDAQ you can sample all 8 analog inputs at the published maximum sample rate of 100 kS/s divided by the number of channels. However, when sampling the digital inputs by themselves or in combination with the analog inputs, the sample rate is reduced to 100 Hz for all inputs. To take advantage of the maximum sample rate for the analog inputs while sampling the digital I/O bits, you could use our Universal Library, ULx for NI LabVIEW, or our DASYLab graphical programming language.

You can use the “External Trigger” on the USB-204 to initiate the start of your ADC conversions.

Our USB-1208FS-Plus supports a trigger and a retrigger mode. On a separate note, current support for MATLAB is through their 32 (R2015). MATLAB is currently working on 64 bit (R2016) support.

DAQami is being run under Windows 7 (with all updates). We have checked that duplicate config files are not present (see USB-204 not detected question).

Unfortunately, I2C communication is not possible using the USB-201-OEM DAQ device. The USB-201-OEM is only capable of reading in voltage based signals. We have done some testing with semiconductor temperature and humidity devices that output voltages. Please review the specifications for the LM35 (temp) and the HIH-4000 (humidity). Both devices output a mV signal based on the input value.

Can you collect data while running the analog output? Also, do you provide Matlab support? Thanks

Thank you for your inquiry. The USB-202-OEM is capable of concurrent A/D and D/A operation when used with our software. However, Measurement Computing does not develop the MATLAB support that you see on our web page (http://www.mccdaq.com/daq-software/MATLAB-Support.aspx). MATLAB driver development is handled by the Mathworks themselves. Also the USB-202-OEM currently is not officially supported under MATLAB (we’re working with Mathworks to get support released under their Data Acquisition Toolbox in the near future). Would an alternative product similar to the USB-202 that does have MATLAB support work for your application? If so, please check out the USB-1208FS-Plus. http://www.mccdaq.com/usb-data-acquisition/USB-1208FS-Plus.aspx

Is this board compatible with the Legacy Measurement Computing Labview Drivers? If not, please recommend a board with at least 2 differential analog inputs, sampling at 500k/sec, +/-10V, compatible with legacy labview drivers. Thanks!

Hello Chris, The USB-204 is compatible with our legacy NI LabVIEW drivers but, unfortunately it only supports single ended inputs. Based on your requirements, our USB-1208HS would work with 4 differential inputs and an aggregate sample rate of 1 MS/sec. You can also consider a 16 bit DAQ device like our USB-1608GX which supports 8 differential inputs with an aggregate sample rate of 500 kS/sec. Both the USB-1208HS and the USB-1608GX are compatible with our legacy NI LabVIEW drivers. Please feel free to contact Sales Engineering at 1-800-234-4232 Ext-3 for assistance with product selection.
