Description

Find how Data Acquisition works on this link.

The OM-USB-1608G Series devices are low-cost, high-speed, analog and digital I/O USB devices. All of these devices offer up to eight differential (DIFF) or 16 single-ended (SE) analog inputs, up to eight digital I/O channels, two counter inputs, and one timer output. The OM-USB-1608GX-2AO offers two, 16-bit analog output channels with DAC rates up to 500 kS/s. Everything you need to begin acquiring, viewing, and storing data is included with each OM-USB-1608G Series device, including comprehensive software support.

Analog Input
OM-USB-1608G Series devices provide 16-bit analog inputs that are software-selectable as 16 SE or eight DIFF inputs. These devices also support input ranges of ±10V, ±5V, ±2V, and ±1V that are software-selectable per channel

Analog Output
(OM-USB-1608GX-2AO only) The OM-USB-1608GX-2AO has two 16-bit analog outputs. Both outputs can be updated at a rate of 250 kS/s per channel; one output can be updated at a rate of 500 kS/s. The output range is fixed at ±10V. The outputs default to 0V when the host PC is shut down or suspended, or when a reset command is issued to the device.

Trigger Input
OM-USB-1608G Series devices have an external digital trigger input. The trigger mode is software-selectable for edge- or level sensitive mode. You can configure edge-sensitive mode for either rising or falling edge. In level sensitive mode, you can configure for either high or low level. The default setting at power up is edge-sensitive, rising edge.

Retrigger Mode:
In retrigger mode, you can set up repetitive analog input trigger events. The trigger is automatically re-armed after it is activated. Use software to set the A/D trigger count (the number of samples you want per trigger).

Digital I/O
Eight bidirectional digital I/O connections are included with OM-USB-1608G Series devices. Each digital channel is individually configurable for input or output. The digital I/O terminals can detect the state of any TTL-level input. You can configure for pull-up (+5V) or pulldown (0V) through a jumper.

Counter Input
Each OM-USB-1608G Series device includes two 32-bit event counters for counting TTL pulses. The counters accept frequency inputs of up to 20 MHz.

Timer Output
OM-USB-1608G Series devices have a PWM timer output that can generate a pulse output with a programmable frequency in the range of 0.0149 Hz to 32 MHz. The timer output parameters are software-selectable.

External Clock I/O
OM-USB-1608G Series devices provide one external clock input and one external clock output for the analog inputs. The OM-USB-1608GX-2AO also has one external clock input and one external clock output for the analog outputs.

Software
The OM-USB-1608G modules ship with an impressive array of software, including the new TracerDAQ®, a fullfeatured, out-of-the-box data logging, viewing, and analysis application. Driver support and detailed example programs are included for Universal Library programming libraries for Microsoft® Visual Studio® programming languages, and other languages, including DASYLab®, and ULx for NI LabVIEW® (comprehensive library of VIs and example programs compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit LabVIEW v8.5 through 2012) and InstaCalTM installation, calibration and test utility-powerful solutions for programmers and nonprogrammers alike. These modules operate under Microsoft Windows® XP (32-bit only) and VISTA/7/8 (32-bit and 64-bit) operating systems.

The OM-USB-1608G data acquisition modules are supplied with TracerDAQ software which is a collection of four virtual instrument applications used to graphically display and store input data and generate output signals:
• Strip Chart—Log and graph values acquire from analog inputs, digital inputs, temperature inputs and   counter inputs
• Oscilloscope—Display values acquired from analog inputs
• Function Generator—Generate waveforms for analog outputs
• Rate Generator—Generate waveforms for counter outputs

TracerDAQ PRO is an enhanced version of TracerDAQ and is available as a purchased upgrade
(SWD-TRACERDAQ-PRO). A comparison of some of the features included in TracerDAQ vs TracerDAQ PRO is shown on the PDF.
