Summary

The SC-1608 Series provides an all-in-one solution to measure and condition analog signals (voltage, temperature, current, frequency, strain, and so on), as well as high voltage and relay digital signals.

The SC-1608 Series is available with three USB versions and one Ethernet version. Each version provides mounting connectors for eight 8B analog input modules, two 8B analog output modules (if AO is supported), and eight digital I/O modules. If a product does not support analog outputs, two additional voltage input modules can be installed.

Conditioned signals are brought out to screw terminals. Users can access all signals via the 50-pin header connector. Any non-conditioned input or output can be used as a non-isolated channel.

SC-1608X-2AO-USB, SC-1608X-USB, and SC-1608-USB
SC-1608 Series USB products provide eight conditioned analog inputs via the front screw terminal (10 if the product does not support analog outputs). Eight additional single-ended channels, eight DIO, counter inputs, trigger input, and external clocking are available via the 50-pin header.

SC-1608-2AO-ENET
The SC-1608-2AO-ENET provides eight conditioned analog inputs via the front screw terminal. Two analog outputs, eight DIO, a counter input, a trigger input, and external clocking are available via the 50-pin header. This product has a 10/100 BASE-T communication port.

8B Analog I/O Signal Conditioning Modules
8B analog I/O modules provide 500 V channel-to-channel isolated I/O signal conditioning. Users mix and match on a per-channel basis between supported voltage, TC, RTD, strain gage, current, and frequency modules. The SC-1608 Series provides mounting locations for eight 8B input modules and two 8B output modules. If a product does not support analog outputs, two additional voltage input modules can be installed. Positive, negative, and excitation signals are brought out to screw terminals for field wiring connections.

Cold Junction Compensation (CJC)
Users can enable CJC functionality with onboard jumpers for each 8B thermocouple input module installed.

Current Shunt Resistors
Sockets are available for users to install plug-in shunt resistors to monitor a 4-20 mA current loop or to measure current using 8B analog voltage input modules.

SSR Digital I/O Control Modules
SSR digital I/O modules are isolated relay control modules. The SC-1608 Series provides mounting locations for eight DIO modules. Users set the input/output type of each module with a DIP switch. Positive and negative relay contacts are brought out to screw terminals for field wiring connections.

Digital Output Logic Control
The control logic polarity for each digital output module is configurable with an onboard jumper for inverted logic (active high, default) or non-inverted logic (active low). This jumper setting has no effect on digital input modules.

Signal Connections
The eight analog inputs, two analog outputs, and eight digital I/O that interface with the 8B analog I/O modules and digital I/O modules are brought out to screw terminals and to a 50-pin header connector for field wiring connections.

Non-Isolated Channels
Any unconditioned input or output can be accessed on the header connector as a non-isolated channel.

External Power Supply
External power is required. An external 12 VDC supply ships with each SC-1608 Series product; users can alternately connect their own supply to an onboard screw terminal.

Mounting Options
The SC-1608 Series can be used on a bench or installed in a rack mount enclosure (MCC p/n ENC-19X5X5).

Included Software
TracerDAQ® TracerDAQ® is an out-of-the-box application that allows data to be generated, acquired, analyzed, displayed and exported within seconds of installing Measurement Computing data acquisition hardware. TracerDAQ offers four different data acquisition applications; a Strip Chart, an Oscilloscope, a Function Generator and a Rate Generator, all of which are accessed via a common, easy-to-use menu page.
InstaCal InstaCal installation, configuration, and test software in one package simplifies these important steps as you turn your PC into a measurement system. Installation detects new hardware and configures your computer and DAQ device. Test routines verify that all the board's features are operating, and will speed you to a quick resolution.
Universal Library Universal Library programming libraries for Windows® Visual Studio® programming languages, and others. A complete function library to simplify the configuration and operation of your measurement board. A single, universal set of functions operates all our products so you only have to learn to use our library once.

ULx for NI LabVIEW™ ULx for NI LabVIEW™ Advanced Driver for use with NI LabVIEW™ versions 2010-2016. Allows quick development of instrumentation, acquisition, and control applications with Measurement Computing hardware devices
Additional Software
DAQami™ v3.0 DAQami™ v3.0 gives users an easy-to-use drag-and-drop interface that makes acquiring data and generating signals a quick and simple task. Users simply select a supported device, configure device channels and other options, and then select one or more displays to plot the data. When a DAQami acquisition is run, the program acquires and logs data from the selected channels, and plots the data on the displays for viewing.
DASYLab® 2016 Software DASYLab® 2016 Software lets you interactively develop PC-based data acquisition applications by simply attaching functional icons. DASYLab offers real-time analysis, control, and the ability to create custom graphical user interfaces (GUIs). What’s more, in contrast to other graphical programming environments, which can require weeks of training to master, DASYLab has a very short user-learning curve. Many applications can be configured in a few minutes, rather than days or weeks.

MATLAB® Support for MCC Products MATLAB® Support for MCC Products – MATLAB® is a software environment for data acquisition, data analysis, and application development. MATLAB supports MCC hardware by using the MATLAB® Data Acquisition Toolbox™. MATLAB supports the data acquisition and analysis process along with interfacing with data acquisition devices and instruments, analyzing and visualizing the data. It also produces presentation-quality reports to share results with others.
TracerDAQ® Pro TracerDAQ® Pro provides four virtual instrument applications used to graphically display and store input data – and generate output signals – within minutes of installing Measurement Computing data acquisition hardware. The applications allow the user to customize appearance, store configurations for future use, save data to a file for export and – with the use of interactive hotspots – change settings while the application is running.
