Measurement & Control. Quite Simple.

Record and output signals with the USB-AD: The USB data acquisition system is ideal for universal applications and due to the small size perfectly suitable for mobile use - just plug in and get going!

Extra Small. Extra Red. Extra Low-Priced.

The unique idea of the USB-AD: The data acquisition system is accomodated in the D-Sub connector housing. Not only the size is extra small but also the price.

16 AIn. 1 AOut. 12 Bit. ±5V.

Voltage signals in the ±5V range are connected at 16 analog inputs. Sampling is done with 12 bit resolution and 10Hz per channel. The ±5V output can be used for analog control with 12 bit accuracy.

4 Digital In. 4 Digital Out.

Digital states are recorded or controlled at four digital inputs and outputs each. Digital inputs are sampled time-synchronously with the analog inputs.

Plug & Play.

The connection to the PC is realized via USB. The USB-AD provides all typical USB features (e.g. Plug&Play, Hot-Plug). Up to 127 devices can be connected and installed during operation.

Powered by USB.

The device is supplied with power via the USB interface. This reduces cabling efforts to a minimum and makes mobile measurements a lot easier.

Open for Everyone.

Widely supported: The data acquisition system can be used under Windows XP/7/8/10 as well as under Mac OS X, Free BSD, and Linux. The complete software for installation and programming of the USB-AD is included for free.

NextView. Try for Free.

The DAQ system is supported by NextView, the software for data acquisition and analysis. A fully functional 30-day trial is included with delivery to directly test the functionality of the USB-AD.

Accessory. Makes Everything so Easy.

Use the demo board ZU-DBD featuring various operating controls and sensors to generate 16 analog signals and record them with the USB data acquisition system.

The most important functions in a nutshell. For technical details see the relating data sheet (PDF).

  •   16 analog inputs (12 bit, max. 10Hz/channel, ±5V)
  •   1 analog output (12 bit, ±5V)
  •   4 digital inputs and outputs each (TTL/CMOS)
  •   bus-powered
  •   USB 2.0, full-speed
  •   DAQ system integrated in compact D-Sub housing

Hardware and Software from One Hand

Drivers, programming support for Windows, Mac OS X, FreeBSD, and Linux, as well as a 30-day full version of the measurement software NextView are included with all DAQ systems for free and can be downloaded from this website.

bmcm Driver Package

USB data acquisition hardware always requires the installation of a device driver to be accessible by software. By providing a free bmcm driver package, the device installation has to be done only once - additional DAQ hardware is installed automatically.
