Solid Performance For A Reasonable Price

We purchased two more USB-1408FS for voltage signal acquisition used for pressure/vacuum and air flow. This board has proved to be solid with very easy setup.

USB1408FS works well with Matlab

I purchased the USB 1408FS so that I could measure some voltages from a Matlab program. From Matlab I call the CBW.DLL found in the Universal Library. The supplied examples were very helpful. The program is now working very reliably. I have used other MCC USB devices in the past and I am very happy with them.

Versatile DAQ Board

We have been using a USB-1408FS for many years. We like it for its ease of use and its versatility. It can read most of the sensors we use frequently. We liked it so much that we bought a second one!

USB-1408FS gets the job done!

I'm a hardware design engineer who needs to collect data for a number of tasks (development, product test etc). I use various MCCdaq products with LabView applications. As I am a self taught LabVIEW "programmer" simple and straight forward drivers are essential. Here MCCdaq excels. At one time or other I've used the Analog in, Counter, analog out and Digital I/O functions all without issues. The few times I've needed guidance, the App guys were right there. I could rely on them for phone support if my need was time critical, or if not I would eMail and receive an answer the next day. Some of my applications are used at different locations by test folks and in the field by our product engineers. I have been able to develop an application on a 1408FS and have it use a 1208LS at another location. All without any complaints from the software. Not to slight the hardware, it too just.... works. The analog in are flexible and accurate (it is a fast sampling device so one must be careful with noise and grounding. however we've never had an issue. In one application we measure a voltage and output an analog output to control a 150 amp power supply. The system has been working for some time now without a flaw. In summary when I started using the USB-1408FS and 1208LS I was amazed on how easy it was to get them up and running. Now I have come to expect it from MCCdaq. J

Reasonable price, consistent measurement results.

We sample 60Hz- 3-phase data from current transformers and convert the 265 samples per channel to an RMS measurement. Good performance, with all the required crunching we have a single cycle result in less than 30mSec (with a very dated PC). Also make use of the counter, driven by an external oscillator, to provide an interval timer function. Extending Lua to support the Universal Library was straight-forward, a direct exposure of the UL functions as Lua functions.

The USB 14-bit is a great device

The USB 14-bit is a great device if you are looking for something very compact. It was easy to use, and has held up in the field. Although, for 250 dollars i would have liked the option of a longer USB cable.

We have your USB 1408fs A to D unit. Using Tracer DAQ, not the pro version, I see sampling at 0.31 seconds per sample. This is like a multimeter sample rate. I need to see at least a millisecond sample rate per channel. Will I be able to sample at the hardware rate (48 Khz total, 6 khz per channels with 8 channels sampled) using TracerDaq Pro? If not TracerDaq Pro, then what tool is next? Thanks MarkS

Answers

Hello Mark, You can sample all 8 channels of your USB-1408FS at its published sample rate, however, the issue you are most likely encountering is the maximum file size being reached within TracerDAQ. TracerDAQ has a maximum file size of 32K samples per channel, per file and TracerDAQ PRO has a 1 million file size limitation. So to answer your question, if you are sampling at 6K with TracerDAQ PRO you will be able to sample for approximately 2.7 minutes. If you need to acquire data for a longer period of time you will either have to lower your sample rate to extend your test time or change software packages. My recommendation would be to use our DASYLab graphical programming language. You can download a 28 day evaluation version from here: http://www.mccdaq.com/products/dasylab.htm
