USB-1408FS-Plus
January 19, 2017
Extremely versatile device.

I work at a small research lab and am responsible for coming up with innovative ways to perform SBIR funded research on a shoe string budget. I have explored many different options and finally found the USB-1408FS. I initially used the USB-1208LS and was very happy to upgrade to the USB-1408FS. With minimal cost and effort I quickly wrote a program that allows us to perform a wide variety of measurements with the results saved to disk. The D/A and A/D functions are very versatile, along with the I/O ports. I highly recommend this to anyone doing simple home projects to serious researchers. We have performed research for DARPA, NASA, NASA JPL, the US Navy, the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, the Marine Corps, and the New York City MTA to name just a few. Odds are, that whatever you are working on, Measurement Computing can help.

Excellent functionality, simple but powerful

This A/D device is easy to use, with software that comes with it on CD (can also be downloaded if computer doesn't have CD-ROM drive). The software includes calibration software, virtual oscilloscope, and there is also sample code in C++ and other languages available on the website for a quick start. It was simple to modify one of the template programs for our needs. Works fine with our OS (Windows 10). Seems robust as well.

Hello Shane, Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, you can extend your digital I/O count. By simply adding additional USB supported products you can extend your analog and digital capacity. Currently the highest count for a MCC USB digital I/O product is 96 bits (the USB-DIO96H).

This is a device which reads voltage, but don't worry, you might be $0.20 away from a solution. Since V=IR and you have an I, all you need to do is add a known R and you'll measure a proportional V. You've got a few things to watch out for, but nothing too big, assuming you're trying to measure low current. Assuming you are trying to measure a 4-20ma signal (very common for process current and you wanted to convert that to a voltage that was compatible with the input of up to 10V, you would simply put a 500 ohm resistor in series with your signal and attach the leads to the device parallel to the resistor. 500ohm is chosen because 20ma*500ohm is 10V, which is the maximum input for the device. Your minimum would be 2V, since 4ma * 500 ohm = 2V, but you can scale the value to the desired units with no problem. Having said that, if you are trying to measure higher currents #call it 0.5 amps or more) then you have to size both the resistance and the power dissipation of the resistor carefully. P=I^2*R, so if you wanted to measure 2 amps for example scaled to the10V maximum input, you'd need a 5 ohm resistor. Now, calculate the power as 2^2 *5 and you get 20W of dissipation. . . not a small number for typical resistors. Less than 0.5 amps is 5W or less and those resistors are relatively easy to obtain through various local sources. If you start getting to big numbers, though, consider a different method for converting current to voltage. Good Luck!

To read current you need to pass "Current" through something, like a resistor. Then all you do is read the voltage drop across the resistor and done.

Mandy

Was this answer helpful? Yes (0) / No (0)

An analog output is a voltage. To measure the current that this voltage is sourcing, you would need to add a current to voltage transducer (perhaps as simple as a resistor inline with the load, though I prefer an IC like the Touchstone Semiconductor TS1100 sensor) then connect this transducer output to one of the analog inputs. You will have to scale the measured voltage to provide the correct current reading. You have to realize that the analog output from the USB-1208 has a limited current range. To drive large loads, you will need additional external circuitry.

The USB-1208FS-Plus supports 8 different software selectable analog input ranges. Accuracy is calculated based on the range so each range has a different accuracy specification based on this criteria. Below is a link to a datasheet that lists the “Absolute Accuracy” for each range (the information you're looking for is on page 5). http://www.mccdaq.com/PDFs/specs/USB-1208FS-LS-1408FS-Series-data.pdf

Answers

Perhaps the cause is a loose wire. Try calibrating only 1 channel at a time, rather than all channels. This reduces the chance for a loose connection since there are far fewer wires. If it still fails to pass, then the unit may require factory calibration, or possibly even repair (although I would try without the earth ground wire before concluding that).

A race car typically has several 0-5 volt referenced sensors. Can this be used to record those analog sensors, an external clock for real time reference, crankshaft position trigger pulses, speedometer pulses, and ignition trigger pulses? All of this car stuff is fairly slow, since the engine only turns 8,000 RPM which is 4000 pulses per minute or 66.7 Hz pulse rates. I would like to data record and dump the data into an excel sheet to convert it back into various data. I am only capable for working with hardware and Excel. I do not do any programming.

I've tried using the counter input and TracerDAQ to measure frequency. The file output only gives a total count, which I can simply divide by the time interval to get frequency. However, when I put a stable 5 kHz signal in, the determined frequency is on the order of 4 kHz. At 900 kHz (which falls under the specified counter limits) the counter gives 1 MHz. This problem occurs when I use a sine curve, a ttl pulse, triangle wave. Is there any way around this? Or is there more information regarding how to connect/configure the counter input somewhere?

Answers

The counter channel is a digital input, so the TTL input should work better than a sine input. You don’t mention what your sample rate is, but if it is > 1 Hz, try performing the frequency calculation by subtracting two values in the data file that are 1 second (or 10 seconds) apart. If you perform the calculation on two readings that are taken say 100 mS or 10 mS apart, there can occasionally be an error due to the software polled nature of reading the counter, especially on a slower PC.

Answers

The digital I/O on the USB-1408FS-Plus is software polled therefore the update rate/latency relies heavily on the system you are using. We did some benchmarking for the USB-1408FS-Plus and for a digital write you can expect around a 3 mSec (333 write/sec) latency and for a read around 400 uSec (2500 reads/sec) latency. Keep in mind that these benchmarks are can change based on your software code and the system you are using to run the DAQ device.
