14 new high-performance USB data acquisition devices

More than a dozen new offerings of USB data acquisition devices were released by Measurement Computing recently.


Norton, MAMeasurement Computing released 14 high-performance USB data acquisition devices. The multifunction, special purpose USB-based products target applications requiring high accuracy, measurement repeatability, and high throughput. The list includes: high-channel-count and high-accuracy analog input and thermocouple measurement devices; several high-speed, simultaneous sampling, multifunction devices; and an eight-channel, simultaneous input quadrature encoder counter.

Measurement Computing USB DAQ modules ship with an array of software.

All new Measurement Computing USB DAQ modules ship with an array of software that includes TracerDAQ, a full-featured, data logging, viewing, and analysis application.

"When we introduced the first line of data acquisition products for USB, we focused on devices for general purpose data acquisition and control applications, and attractive prices," said Jim Ficaro, marketing director for Measurement Computing. "We're now working on higher performance products for signal and sensor measurements requiring instrument-class accuracy, applications requiring high-speed simultaneous sampling, and enough analog, digital, and specialty I/O in one module to reduce or eliminate the need for additional instrumentation."
Devices are supported by the Universal Library, programming libraries and drivers for most Windows-based programming languages. The function library simplifies configuration and operation of the measurement board, reducing human error by eliminating detailed, low-level functions. It requires little disk storage, making it suitable for integration into multiple instrument systems and OEM products.
All new USB DAQ modules ship with an array of software that includes TracerDAQ, a full-featured, data logging, viewing, and analysis application; Universal Library for LabVIEW, Vis, and program examples for LabVIEW acquisition, graphics, control, and analysis software; and Measurement Studio MCC Edition, Visual Studio 2005/2003 components and controls optimized for test, measurement, analysis, and presentation.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
