Product Defective Out of the Box

This product is priced well and is well documented. However, the unit I received was defective out of the box. It was a big pain to figure out that one of the analog outputs was not working. Luckily, none of my equipment was damaged by the 12V output the channel was giving. I was able to return it but I had to pay for return shipping.

MCC performs 100% testing on each unit when new, so we are confident it was fully functional when put into our stock. We will evaluate the unit when returned, to repair and identify possible causes for the failure. We will contact you with our findings.

Excellent analogue voltage output, easy MATLAB integration

USed this module to send an output voltage modulator (analogue) to a device motor. Integrated well with MATLAB. PRetty good examples for integrating it with MATLAB. Only recommendation for improvement would be to be able to use it in non-Windows environments.

software complaints

While I'm satisfied with the hardware, I am disappointed by a couple software aspects. First of all, this does not appear to be compatible with DAQami, but only with TracerDAQ Pro (not lite), which is not the greatest interface in my opinion. Furthermore, I am having trouble with glitches in the pro software. For example, the function generator crashes depending on which hardware channels I have activated, which means I am not able to take advantage of all 4 channels on this 4-channel AO product...

DAQami will support more of MCC’s USB models later in 2014, however support for D/A functionality is not expected in the next release. The free version of TracerDAQ’s Function Generator app will only output a sinewave, and only on one channel. The PRO version adds other waveforms types, and supports up to 16 channels. Please contact MCC technical support to have them duplicate the issue you saw. However, another factor to take into account is that the USB-31xx series (all models except the USB-3101FS) have a very slow update rate. The non-FS USB-31xx models are a good fit for DC output applications (where the output voltage is changed occasionally, but not continuously), but are not a good fit for waveform generation (which is the main goal of TracerDAQ’s function generator). The USB-3101FS model is recommended for higher speed waveform output.

Easy to use.

I used this product in Visual Basic Program with great success.The inputs, outputs were use to control a measuring Acquisition system while the Analog output controlled the pressure.

Summary
The USB-3101 is a USB 2.0 full-speed device that is supported under popular Microsoft® Windows® operating systems. The USB-3101 is fully compatible with both USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 ports.

The USB-3101 provides four channels of analog voltage output, eight digital I/O connections, and one 32-bit event counter.

The USB-3101 has a quad (4-channel) 16-bit digital-to-analog converter (DAC). You set the voltage output range of each DAC channel independently with software for either bipolar or unipolar. The bipolar range is ±10 V, and the unipolar range is 0 to 10 V. The analog outputs may be updated individually or simultaneously. A bidirectional synchronization connection allows you to simultaneously update the DAC outputs on multiple devices.

The USB-3101 features eight bidirectional digital I/O connections. You can configure the DIO lines as input or output in one 8 bit port. All digital pins are floating by default. A screw terminal connection is provided for pull up (+5 V) or pull-down (0 volts) configuration.

The 32-bit counter can count TTL pulses.

The USB-3101 is powered by the +5 volt USB supply from your computer. No external power is required. All I/O connections are made to the screw terminals located along each side of the USB-3101.

TracerDAQ® TracerDAQ® is an out-of-the-box application that allows data to be generated, acquired, analyzed, displayed and exported within seconds of installing Measurement Computing data acquisition hardware. TracerDAQ offers four different data acquisition applications; a Strip Chart, an Oscilloscope, a Function Generator and a Rate Generator, all of which are accessed via a common, easy-to-use menu page.
InstaCal InstaCal installation, configuration, and test software in one package simplifies these important steps as you turn your PC into a measurement system. Installation detects new hardware and configures your computer and DAQ device. Test routines verify that all the board's features are operating, and will speed you to a quick resolution.
Universal Library Universal Library programming libraries for Windows® Visual Studio® programming languages, and others. A complete function library to simplify the configuration and operation of your measurement board. A single, universal set of functions operates all our products so you only have to learn to use our library once.

ULx for NI LabVIEW™ ULx for NI LabVIEW™ Advanced Driver for use with NI LabVIEW™ versions 2010-2016. Allows quick development of instrumentation, acquisition, and control applications with Measurement Computing hardware devices
Optional Software
DAQami™ v3.0 DAQami™ v3.0 gives users an easy-to-use drag-and-drop interface that makes acquiring data and generating signals a quick and simple task. Users simply select a supported device, configure device channels and other options, and then select one or more displays to plot the data. When a DAQami acquisition is run, the program acquires and logs data from the selected channels, and plots the data on the displays for viewing.
DASYLab® 2016 Software DASYLab® 2016 Software lets you interactively develop PC-based data acquisition applications by simply attaching functional icons. DASYLab offers real-time analysis, control, and the ability to create custom graphical user interfaces (GUIs). What’s more, in contrast to other graphical programming environments, which can require weeks of training to master, DASYLab has a very short user-learning curve. Many applications can be configured in a few minutes, rather than days or weeks.

Linux® Support for MCC DAQ Products Linux® Support for MCC DAQ Products Many MCC products are supported under open-source Linux drivers. MCC works closely with the developer to provide professional driver support for many devices including most USB and PCI hardware.
MATLAB® Support for MCC Products MATLAB® Support for MCC Products – MATLAB® is a software environment for data acquisition, data analysis, and application development. MATLAB supports MCC hardware by using the MATLAB® Data Acquisition Toolbox™. MATLAB supports the data acquisition and analysis process along with interfacing with data acquisition devices and instruments, analyzing and visualizing the data. It also produces presentation-quality reports to share results with others.
TracerDAQ® Pro TracerDAQ® Pro provides four virtual instrument applications used to graphically display and store input data – and generate output signals – within minutes of installing Measurement Computing data acquisition hardware. The applications allow the user to customize appearance, store configurations for future use, save data to a file for export and – with the use of interactive hotspots – change settings while the application is running.
