The DAQP-12 PCMCIA data acquisition card provides eight differential or 16 single-ended analog input channels, expandable to 256 with input expansion adapters. Its bipolar input range extends from ±1.25V to ±10V. Programmable gains are in steps of 1, 2, 4 and 8. A high gain option of 1, 10, 100 and 1000 is also available (DAQP-12H). The DAQP-12 supports sampling rates of up to 100 kS/sec at 12-bit resolution.
Equipped with a 4K Data FIFO, the DAQP-12 can achieve full speed data acquisition under Windows. It also has a 2048 entry Scan FIFO which supports full speed random order channel scanning and gain selection. Compared with other manufacturers' cards providing smaller FIFOs, the DAQP-12 significantly reduces CPU overhead.
The DAQP-12 has a 24-bit pacer clock (programmable by a divisor of eight or a prescaler of 64) that can be used with an external clock source. With the 5MHz internal clock source, the pacer clock can generate sampling rates precise from .01 S/sec to 100 kS/sec. The DAQP-12 also has eight TTL compatible digital I/O channels, each of which can be used for control or monitoring.
The DaqSuite CD is included with the card. It contains DAQDRIVE, a software driver supporting various programming languages including Microsoft C/C++, Borland C/C++, QuickBasic, Turbo PASCAL, and VisualBasic. The DaqEZ and DaqEZ Pro user friendly data acquisition application software packages are included on the CD, as are drivers which interface to DasyLab, LabView, and TestPoint. A PCMCIA client driver is provided for use with DOS and Windows 3.1. Windows 95/98/NT and Windows 2000 are supported.
