The MCC brand USB-1208HS from Firetail DAQ is a very high-speed, multifunction, measurement and control device supported under popular Microsoft® Windows® operating systems offering an exceptional set of performance standards matched with unrivalled ease of use. The USB-1208HS features eight single-ended or four differential 13-bit analog inputs, with a sample rate of up to1 MS/s. The input ranges available are ±10 V, ±5 V, ±2.5 V or 0 to10 V when in single-ended mode. In differential mode, the ranges are ±20 V, ±10 V, or ±5 V. A digital trigger lets you start analog input or output conversions. The USB-1208HS also includes two 32-bit counters that can count TTL pulses, and one 32-bit PWM timer output. The USB-1208HS can be ordered without analog outputs or with two or four high speed outputs. All I/O connections are made to the screw terminals located along each side of the device.
