16-Bit Multifunction Ethernet Data Acquisition

Product Announcement from Measurement Computing

The Ethernet-based E-1608 is a low-cost, high-speed, multifunction I/O DAQ device that measures eight analog channels at 250 kS/s aggregate with 16-bit resolution. This device also offers two analog outputs, eight digital I/O channels, and one counter input.

Ethernet Interface
The E-1608 has a built-in 10/100 BASE-T auto-negotiation, high-speed communication port. The networking protocols are TCP/IP and UDP.

Once connected to the network, the device can be remotely accessed and configured through software from anywhere on the network. Only one user at a time can access the E-1608.

Analog Input
The E-1608 provides 16-bit analog inputs that are software-selectable as 8 SE or 4 DIFF inputs. The device supports input ranges of ±10 V, ±5 V, ±2 V, and ±1 V that are software-selectable per channel.

Analog Output
The E-1608 has two 16-bit, software-paced analog outputs that can be updated at a rate of 500 S/s. The output range is fixed at ±10 V.

Trigger Input
The E-1608 has 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.

Digital I/O
Eight bidirectional digital I/O bits are 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 (+5 V) or pull-down (0 V) with an onboard jumper.

Counter Input
One 32-bit event counter can count TTL pulses. The counter accept inputs of up to 10 MHz.

Clock I/O
The E-1608 has one external clock input and one clock output for analog inputs.

E-1608 devices are factory-calibrated. Specifications are guaranteed for one year. For calibration beyond one year, return the device to the factory for recalibration.
