USB-1096HFS Digital I/O Interface
The USB-1096HFS high-current, USB-based digital I/O interface is the latest product in the Measurement Advantage brand interfaces, and provides 96 bits of high-current, logic-level digital I/O. The unit offers four independent 24-bit DIO groups, each divided into two 8-bit ports and two 4-bit ports, and is based on a discrete emulation of the industry standard 82C55’s mode zero. The outputs sink 64 mA, or source 24 mA, and make it possible to drive a wide assortment of external devices directly, without additional buffering. The enclosure makes it suitable for laboratory, automated test and industrial monitoring/control applications. The all-aluminum chassis rests on any benchtop, or may be mounted on any standard DIN rail. All wiring is brought out to full-sized screw terminals that are easy to wire to, and yet are protected by the unit’s latching connection cover. The include SoftWIRE software is the powerful graphical programming extension for Visual Studio. Drivers and VIs for LabVIEW are also provided with the interface.
