USB-1808 Series

 

High-Speed, High-Precision, Simultaneous USB Devices

KEY HIGHLIGHTS

The USB-1808 Series data acquisition (DAQ) devices provide 18-bit high-resolution, simultaneous analog inputs along with digital I/O and counter measurements. They feature synchronous I/O which provides the ability to read analog, digital, and counter inputs, and generate analog and digital outputs at the same time. OEM versions are available for embedded applications.

Great mix of features

We are using the USB 1808 with our ScadaPro product (see www.measuresoft.com) and using the Universal library. Our customers application is using 4xUSB 1808s to acquire a mix of pressure, sensor and control feedback inputs. The 18-bits of accuracy is what sold us on this product. We use the digital outputs to calibrate the pressure transducers by switching them to full scale. We use the analog outputs for generating various waveform types to control equipment.

Answers

UL for Linux (uldaq) is compiled at time of installation onto your target computer. This way, it can be compatible with any processor, including ARM. It requires C/C++ compilers, make tool, and the development package for libusb. Ubuntu is supported.

I am looking at collecting data from many sensors. How many USB-1808s can be connected to a single PC? How about the software? If I develop my own application using the Universal Library, are there any limitations to the number of USB-1808s can be connected?

Answers

Our Universal Library imposes no limits in terms of the number of USB devices that are supported. A USB host controller can enumerate up to 127 USB devices. The main limiting factor is going to be the USB bus bandwidth. Each USB device takes up a certain amount of bandwidth. When sampling data from multiple devices at high sample rates the bandwidth can easily be exceeded. The faster you sample the more bandwidth is used. Unfortunately, there is no accurate way calculate how many MCC DAQ devices can be used at full speed without exceeding the USB bus bandwidth. It all comes down to the sample rate of ALL the connected DAQ devices. If you exceed the bus bandwidth and our driver cannot keep up with the data transfer, you will in turn receive an “Overrun” error. An overrun error states that data was lost because the computer (bus bandwidth) could not keep up with the DAQs sample rate. Lowering your sample rate can alleviate this error and allow for additional USB DAQ devices to be connected. Your PC may also have multiple USB host controllers, allowing for more MCC DAQ devices if you connect them to different host controller ports.

Answers

Yes, the USB-1808 will support input signals spanning a frequency range from 0-25kHz. The USB-1808 supports a per channel software selectable sample rate from 0.023Hz up to 50kHz. We do not have any graphs representing the frequency response of the USB-1808. Please contact sales engineering at 1-800-234-4232 Ext-3 with any additional questions you may have regarding the USB-1808.

Can I change the input resolution as needed? 18 bit resolution is too much for my application and may (my assumption, may not be true) affect the sampling rate. My final data would have to be reduced to 10 or 12 bits anyway.

The input resolution cannot be reduced. 18 bits is always returned for analog input data.
