Software Support

 The USB-based Personal Daq/3000 Series offers high-speed, multifunction data acquisition in a low-cost, portable package. The Personal Daq/3000 Series has a 16-bit, 1-MHz A/D converter coupled with 16 single-ended, 8 differential analog inputs, or 8 differential thermocouple inputs. Each channel can be software-configured for a different voltage range or thermocouple input.

Twenty four TTL-level digital I/O lines are included in the Personal Daq/3000 Series. Four 32-bit counters are also included. Each of the four counters accepts frequency inputs up to 20 MHz, and each counter channel can be configured in a variety of modes, including counter, period, pulse width, time between edges, or multi-axis quadrature encoder. Two or four 16-bit, 1-MHz analog output channels are built into the Personal Daq/3000 or /3001 units.

Included with the Personal Daq/3000 Series is DaqView software, a comprehensive Out-of-the-Box application that enables setup, data logging, and real-time data viewing without any programming skills. DaqView also features direct-to-Excel® enhancements, FFT analysis, and statistics. Also included is a complete set of drivers for the most popular programming languages and software packages. Driver support includes Visual Basic®, C/C++, DASYLab®, LabVIEW®, and MATLAB®. DaqCOM provides Windows®- based ActiveX/COM-based programming tools for Microsoft® Visual Studio® and Visual Studio® .NET.

Signal Conditioning and Expansion
Adding analog input channels to a Personal Daq/3000 system is easy using the optional PDQ30 expansion module, which provides an additional 48SE/24DE analog inputs or 24 differential thermocouple inputs.

* The Personal Daq/54 does not have frequency, digital I/O, or expansion capability
** In rare instances an external power source is required when PC-supplied power is inadequate
