ACCES I/O Products released the USB-AIO Family, a family of low cost USB analog I/O modules. Standard features in the USB-AIO Family include up to four 16-bit analog outputs and 16 high-current digital I/O lines, all packaged in a 4" x 4" x 1.25", rugged, industrial enclosure. This family of boards also includes models with slower A/D speeds and a group of 12-bit modules for less demanding applications. The OEM USB/104 version provides just the board without the enclosure and is ideal for a variety of embedded OEM applications.
The USB-AIO Family includes a dozen models with list prices ranging from $374 to $879. The boards feature eight standard analog voltage input ranges, two factory current input ranges (4-20mA or 10-50mA), 16 factory pseudo-differential inputs, and include a data sample buffer and hardware real-time calibration capability. A channel-by-channel programmable gain feature enables measurement of an assortment of large and small signals in one scan—all under software control at up to 1MHz. The board's data buffer and ability to trigger the A/D in real time assures synchronized sampling that is unaffected by other computer operations—an essential requirement for signal, vibration, and transient analysis where high data rates must be sustained for short periods of time. For embedded OEM type applications, an additional miniature USB input header is provided in parallel with the type B connector.
Available accessories include a wide variety of cables and screw terminal boards for quick connectivity. Customization options include conformal coating, custom software/product-labeling, and more.
