Easy to Use and Works Great

I bought the MCC118 to go along with a MCC 134 and MCC 152 HAT for total automated experimental control of a power supply and associated pump equipment. Everything with a Pi base. The MCC118 HAT was easy to stack and also easy to use by copying pieces of the example code into a larger script.

Amazing performance for the price

We picked this up for a custom device we built to monitor and log variations in an optical signal. Our original plan was to try this out for prototyping and then go from there, but the performance was excellent and the API was great so we found that this was already more than enough for our application. Great product.

Excellent daq Hat

I bought the hat for acquiring 4 channels of analog data at 16k samples/s per channel .After installing the hat c-libraries, I was able to easily modify one of the given c-code examples and compile successfully. I was a bit skeptical, but I am now presently surprised.The raspberry pi processor cores didn’t even get much load at all. It looks like most of the processing work was done by the hat hardware. I highly recommend this product. Thx.

Cool data logger

Getting the software and libraries isn't intuitive for people new to Raspberry Pi. Still working my way thru that. The board seems to be high quality, it fits perfectly, the hardware is great, and overall it just kinda cool. Once I figured this one out I hope to start using multiple hats.

What is the Maximum Continuous sampling rate that is achievable? I would like to sample at at least 50ksps on 2 channels simultaneously, so thats 100ksps over all. Would this board allow the streaming of these 100ksps continuously? Or is the 100hsps stated in the product description a maximum burst rate?

The 100 kHz aggregate rate also applies to continuous mode. i.e. it can run 24/7/365.

Hi - I understand that MCC 118 uses the SPI bus. Can you confirm that it does not use or interfere with the I2C bus? (My application uses an I2C bus with 2 masters that have to work out turn-taking.)

Steve Waltham, Massachusetts, USA


Answers

Yes, I2C is used. The Raspberry Pi HAT specification calls for an EEPROM onboard attached to I2C. This EEPROM must have product-specific data in a format that tells the Pi what signals are in use, information on the manufacturer and model of the board, etc. We also use this EEPROM to store calibration information. The address signals connect to the HAT EEPROM to allow the EEPROMs on different boards to appear at different addresses on the I2C bus. At the following link is an FAQ which shows the pins each of our HATs uses: https://kb.mccdaq.com/KnowledgebaseArticle50812.aspx

If my analog sensor has an output range of 0-3.3V is it possible to change the voltage corresponding to the maximum (and minimum) ADC code? Otherwise I'll only be using a portion of the 12bit resolution.

There is no provision in the MCC 118 hardware design for a range change. You could consider using your own external amplifier.

We are trying to use the MCC118 with a MCC152. Only the board with address 0 is listed (the address jumper on the boards were swapped and consistently only the board with address 0 appears). Where could the problem be?

Answers

If you change your board stack, you must update the saved EEPROM images so that the library has the correct board information. You can use the DAQ HAT Manager or the command: sudo daqhats_read_eeproms The DAQ Hat Manager is a tool located on your Raspberry Pi system. Click Start >> Accessories >> MCC DAQ HAT Manager. Click Read EEPROMs button.

MCC offers support for C (Linux) and/or Python only. LabVIEW is not a supported programming option for the MCC HATs. Currently there is no LabVIEW development in process for the HATs.

Answers

Unfortunately, the MCC HATs are not compatible with the UP board. They are designed to run only on the Raspberry Pi platform. An alternative would be to run our UL for Linux and our USB DAQ devices with Ubuntu and the UP board. You can find a list of supported hardware at: https://www.mccdaq.com/PDFs/Manuals/Linux-hw.pdf

Can the MCC 118 external trigger input be used to stop a scan? If the trigger mode is set to "active high" for a continuous scan so that the scan is started when the trigger line goes high, will the scan then be stopped when the trigger line goes low?

The trigger input can only start a scan. i.e. the trigger circuitry does not have a “gating” operation mode.

If I stack 6 of these boards on top of each other to measure 48 voltage points, will the measurements be done simultaneously or something like all within 1 second?

wsbz


Answers

The measurements will not be performed simultaneously for all channels because of the MCC 118 architecture. Each MCC 118 has a single ADC that switches its inputs to the different channels on the board. The minimum time to sample all 8 channels on a board is 8/100 kHz = 80 microseconds (plus software overhead to configure a scan and retrieve the data), but multiple boards can be configured to perform their sampling in parallel so all 6 boards could be sampling their channels during that same time.

Current support is only for single ended inputs. No other variations are available at this time. We do offer USB DAQ devices that support the Raspberry Pi. Several of these devices have both single ended or differential inputs (like our USB-1208FS-Plus) For a full list of supported hardware via our UL for Linux, please visit: https://www.mccdaq.com/PDFs/Manuals/Linux-hw.pdf

The Raspberry PI comes with the GCC C compiler already built in. If looking for a development environment, you can consider Code::Blocks, which is a free IDE that supports multiple compilers including GCC.
