What is the difference between this model and the 1408FS

I currently use the USB-1408FS. Is the 1408FS-Plus an updated model? All the specs look the same. Please clarify. Thank you!
Job Title:: Lead Scientist
Industry:: Biotech
Application:: Bioprocessing
Hello zsun - Thank You for your inquiry. Basically the –Plus is an updated model with some enhancements.

1) The analog outputs now output a 0-5 volt signal versus the older 0-4096 (4.096 volts) and have an update rate of 50K versus 10K.

2) The digital I/O bits can now source or sink ±24 mA per pin Port B, ±6.0 mA per pin Port A versus +- 6.0 mA for all ports.

3) Added additional software support for the –Plus model.

We have a comparison table at the below link:

NI LabVIEW™ Driver for Measurement Computing Data Acquisition Products

How to capture all channel data from USB-TC

Im trying to capture the data on USB-TC for all thermocouple channels with Labview, example show single channel only,

How do i get all 8 in?
Job Title:: Design Engineer
Industry:: Oil and Gas
Application:: Measurement of cell temperature
Hello - The structure of the data array for our Tin function call is not a perfect match for what LabVIEW is looking for. The TinScan call places the data into one column, verses a row, with a column of data per channel. LabVIEW does not know how to parse this data. However, there are ways to get it to work and display multiple channels. For your convenience, I’m going to email you an example VI to help with your programming. Please check your inbox and let us know if we can help out in any other way.

API Library for supported MCC DAQ Devices that support the Android™ Platform

When will I see support for other devices?

I currently have a USB-1608FS and a USB-2404-10. I need to get them to talk to the Android and graph the data. I had hoped that the new UL would support them.
Other software used:: Eclipse
Job Title:: Engineering Technician
Industry:: Government
Application:: Geophysics
The two models you listed are not conducive for support in UL for Android, and at this time, there is no support forthcoming. Instead of the USB-1608FS, please consider the USB-1608FS-PLUS, which just had Android support added (version 1.2.0)

Data Acquisition USB DAQ Device 12-Bit, 100 kS/s

What are the minimum DC amperage that can be detected?

I am interested in investigating whether the USB-201 could detect a rise in amperage from 10 pA to 100 pA DC. I'm currently using a digital multimeter with a 10 Mohm impedance load and 0.1 nA DC is the limit of detection for this device. The minimum data-logging rate for the DMM is only 1 second, so the USB-201 would be a great improvement if it will detect changes within the range 0.1 to 100 nA.
Accuracy is not a requirement, only detecting meaningful changes.
Job Title:: Biologist
Industry:: Academia
Application:: sensing the DC component generated by RF interacting with tissue
Thank you for your inquiry. The USB-201 is a voltage based DAQ device and uses a 12 bit A/D converter. The USB-201 supports a fixed +- 10 volt input range. In order to read a current signal you would have to provide some signal conditioning to convert the current to a voltage. The other important factor is that the USB-201 uses a 12 bit A/D converter and would not be capable of providing enough resolution to read a 0.1 to 100 nA signal.

Installation, Configuration, and Test Utility

Instacal for Windows 8.1


I have an ADC device that Instacal version 6.31 cannot find on Windows 8.1. This is only a problem in Windows 8.1. I have heard that this should be fixed in a new release of instacal.

Can you give any approximate date of release for the next version of Instacal?

Best regards,
Other software used:: C#
Job Title:: Software engineer
MCC will officially support Win 8.1 in version 6.32, which is due out very soon (mid April). A subset of our USB models (namely HID models) are adversely affected by power saving changes Microsoft made in Win 8.1, versus Win 8.0. More details can be found in an FAQ on our Knowledgebase (link below) which provides a utility so version 6.31 can be used in the mean time.

Battery-Powered Remote Thermocouple Data Logger

Does the USB-501 have a calibration adjustment?

Job Title:: Manufacturing Technician
Industry:: Semiconductor
Application:: oven
Hello CalTech - No re-calibration is possible for the USB-500 series loggers, as there are no adjustments that can be made. They are warranted to meet published specs for 1 year.

12-Bit, 100 kS/s, 2 Analog Outputs, OEM USB Data Acquisition Board

Simultaneous AO and AI? Matlab Support?

Can you collect data while running the analog output?
Also, do you provide Matlab support?

Industry:: Science Education
Thank you for your inquiry. The USB-202-OEM is capable of concurrent A/D and D/A operation when used with our software. However, Measurement Computing does not develop the MATLAB support that you see on our web page ( MATLAB driver development is handled by the Mathworks themselves. Also the USB-202-OEM currently is not officially supported under MATLAB (we’re working with Mathworks to get support released under their Data Acquisition Toolbox in the near future). Would an alternative product similar to the USB-202 that does have MATLAB support work for your application? If so, please check out the USB-1208FS-Plus.

Migration from the PCI-DAS 1602/16 to PCIe-DAS 1602/16

If I migrate from the PCI-DAS 1602/16 to PCIe-DAS 1602/16 will I need to make any changes to the c++ program?
Job Title:: Sr Electrial Eng.
Industry:: Industrial Equipment
Application:: Sensor data aquisition
Thank you for your inquiry. I’m making an assumption that you are using our Universal Library, but I would foresee no changes having to be made to your code. However, there is one possible exception. The analog outputs on the PCI-DAS1602/16 can be hardware paced up to 100 KHz where the analog outputs on the PCIe-DAS1602/16 cannot be (they are software polled). They also use different connectors so your field wiring would need to change.

16-Channel, 16-Bit, High-Speed Analog Input Board

What are the compatable PCI slot(s)?

We are changing computers in the field and the new PCs only have 1 legacy PCI slot (need 2), what slot is the 1602/16 compatable with?

Dimensions (HxWxD): 16.30 x 6.79 x 18.54"; 414 x 172.6 x 471mm
Slots (five full length, one half length): Two PCIe x16 Gen 3;
one PCIe x16 Gen 3 wired x8 (half length); one PCIe x4 Gen
2; one PCIe x1 Gen 2; One PCI 32bit/33MHz
Job Title:: Sr. Elec. Eng.
Industry:: Industrial Equipment
Hello Daver, thank you for your inquiry. The PCI-DAS1602/16 is a full size PCI card and would be compatible with the (1) 32 bit/33Mhz PCI slot. My recommendation would be to migrate to our PCIe-DAS1602/16 which is compatible with a PCIe x1 slot but will work in an x4,x8, or an x16 PCIe slot as well. Please feel free to contact us if you have any additional questions.
