USB-AO16-16A USB module

ACCES I/O Products Inc. has extended its line of small form factor USB-based DAQ and control I/O modules with the USB-AO series that consists of 12- and 16bit USB modules.

The USB-AO16-16A is a high speed USB 2.0, multifunction board featuring 16 channels of 16bit resolution analog outputs along with two 16bit analog inputs and 16 digital I/O linesall packaged in a small, rugged, industrial enclosure.

The module can be used in any PC or embedded system with a USB port and is intended for embedded system and test designers. The USB-AO16-16A can be used in many USB-based embedded applications, which require stable and accurate output signals. Applications include light control, motion control, and process controls.

The board measures 3.550-inch x 3.775-inch and ships inside a steel powder-coated enclosure with an anti-skid bottom. A DIN rail mounting provision is available for installation in industrial environments.

The boards feature both unipolar and bipolar output ranges. Additional specific ranges can be achieved as factory options. All analog output channels can be updated either individually or simultaneously. System calibration specific to user requirements can be performed via a provided, easy-to-use, software utility. Automatic circuits limit analog outputs to zero volts until initialized via software command.

The USB-AO series can be integrated into any PC/104-based stack by connecting it to a USB port included on-board with embedded CPU form factors such as EBX, EPIC, and PC/104.

The series is supported for use in most OS and includes a free Linux (including Mac OS X) and Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista/7 compatible software package. This package contains sample programs and source code in Visual Basic, Delphi, and Visual C++ for Windows.

Pricing for the USB-AO series ranges from $299 to $699. Delivery is stock to two weeks ARO.
