High Speed 16-bit OEM Multifunction DAQ Board



The MCC brand USB-2523 from Firetail DAQ is a multifunction measurement and control board designed for the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) supported under popular Microsoft Windows® operating systems. The USB-2523 provides either eight differential or 16 single-ended analog inputs with 16-bit resolution from its 40-pin connectors or optional terminal boards. It offers seven software-selectable analog input ranges and you can configure up to four of the analog inputs as differential thermocouple (TC) inputs. The board has 24 high-speed digital I/O, two timer outputs, and four 32-bit counters. It provides up to 12 MS/s scanning on all digital input lines. You can operate all analog I/O, digital I/O, and counter/timer I/O synchronously. The USB-2523 is reliable and rugged enough for any DAQ application. The combination of the USB-2523 and Measurement Computing’s DAQ software suite gives you a complete data acquisition solution that will have you taking measurements in minutes. The device is easy to use and fully USB plug and play.
