Pico Technology announced the latest addition to their data acquisition rangethe USB ADC-11 data logger. According to the company, the new product has USB connectivity to allow fast sampling rates and additional digital outputs for use as control or alarm outputs. Available in two variants, the USB ADC-11/10 (10bit) and USB ADC-11/12 (12bit) are both compatible with the multi-purpose terminal block.

The new data logger provides a cost effective solution for measuring and recording voltage signals unto any Windows-based PC or laptop. When used with PicoLog data logging software, which is able to record up to 1 million readings, the data can be viewed in real-time or stored on hard disk for later analysis.

Both variants of the USB ADC-11 are capable of measuring up to 11 channels of voltage at up to 20,000 samples per second. The USB ADC-11/10 provides 1,024 discrete voltage levels giving 1 percent accuracy, while the USB ADC-11/12 offers considerably higher accuracy with 4,096 voltage levels and 0.5 percent accuracy.

Pico Tech added that using the optional terminal block significantly expands the functionality of the USB ADC-11. An area of PCB is reserved for the design and implementation of custom sensor circuits such as high precision thermister, standard thermocouple or current and light measurement.

Alan Tong, Technical Director at Pico Tech, said, "The importance of keeping abreast of the latest PC technology cannot be understated. USB-enabled PC based data acquisition and oscilloscope devices facilitate a giant leap in performance; this is why our portfolio includes a range of USB powered instruments."

Both USB ADC-11 models are available immediately directly from the company or any of its authorized distributors.
