Computer Connection
   Connection to Host       
   Your choices are...         
   USB       Universal serial bus (USB) is a 4-wire, 12-Mbps serial bus for low-to-medium speed peripheral device connections to personal computers (PC), including keyboards, mice, modems, printers, joysticks, audio functions, monitor controls, etc. The USB design is standardized by the USB Implementers Forum (USBIF), an organization that includes leading companies from the computer and electronics industries. The current USB specification is USB 2.0, which supports data transfer rates of up to 480 Mbps. 
   IEEE 1394 (FireWire®)       IEEE 1394 or FireWire® is an interface standard adopted by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) for very fast digital data transfers such as streaming video. IEEE 1394 connectors are used to transmit and receive data among FireWire devices, and are designed to replace external high-speed peripheral connections to personal computers, including hard disks, CD-ROMs, DVDs, graphics cards, high-speed scanners, direct video, monitors, etc. Tiny, robust FireWire connectors will also become important parts of home entertainment, communication, and appliance networks. FireWire is a registered trademark of Apple Computer, Inc.  
   GPIB       The general-purpose interface bus (GPIB) is designed to connect computers, peripherals and laboratory instruments so that data and control information can pass between them. It was originally developed by Hewlett Packard (HP) and called the HPIB bus. GPIB is also known as the IEEE 488 bus, and is electrically equivalent to the IEC 625 bus.   
   SCSI       Small computer systems interface (SCSI) is an intelligent I/O parallel peripheral bus with a standard, device-independent protocol that allows many peripheral devices to be connected to the SCSI port. A single SCSI bus can drive up to eight devices or units: the host adapter or controller, and seven other devices. Each device is assigned a different SCSI ID, ranging from 0 to 7.  SCSI formats include SCSI-1, SCSI-2, SCSI-3, Wide SCSI, Fast SCSI, Wide Fast SCSI, Ultra SCSI, Ultra2 SCSI, Ultra3 SCI (Ultra160), Ultra 320 SCSI, and Ultra640 SCSI. 
   TTL       Transistor-transistor logic (TTL) is a common type of digital circuit in which the output is derived from two transistors. More commonly, however, TTL is used to designate any type of digital input or device. 
   Parallel Interface       Parallel interface channels are capable of transferring more than one bit simultaneously. Parallel communications protocols include GPIB (IEEE-488, HPIB). 
   Ethernet       Ethernet is a local area network (LAN) protocol that uses a bus or star typology and supports data transfer rates of 10 Mbps. The Ethernet specification is the basis for the IEEE 802.3 standard, which specifies the physical and lower software layers. To handle simultaneous demands, Ethernet uses carrier sense multiple access / collision detection (CSMA/CD) to monitor network traffic. 
   Modem       Modems (modulator-demodulators) are devices or programs that enable a computer to transmit data over telephone lines. Computer information is stored digitally, whereas information transmitted over telephone lines is sent in the form of analog waves. A modem converts between these two forms. 
   Radio / Telemetry       Communication from the data acquisition device to a host or storage unit is achieved via radio transmission. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary communication configurations.

Data Acquisition Specifications
   Analog Input Channels:       This is the maximum number of analog channel inputs. The single-ended number is specified when single-ended inputs are available as twice the number of differential inputs. Differential channels use the difference between two signals as an input; common mode is filtered out. In some systems, differential inputs are combinations of two single-ended inputs. When this is the case, twice the numbers of differential channels are available as single-ended inputs. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value greater than or equal to the specified value.
   Differential Channels       Differential channels have two inputs. The signal to process is the voltage (V) difference between the two inputs. For example, if one reading is 4.93 V and the other reading is 5.16 V, the meaningful value is the 0.23 V difference between the two. Often, this applies to precision measurements where the difference between two low voltage inputs is small but critical. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Digital I/O Channels       Digital or discrete channels are used for low-level on-off signals used in applications such as communication, user interface, or control. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value greater than or equal to the specified value.
   Sampling Frequency       Sampling frequency is the frequency of analog signal sampling and conversion to a digital value. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value greater than or equal to the specified value.
   Resolution       Resolution refers to the degree of fineness of the digital word representing the analog value. A ten-bit number contains 210, or 1024, increments. A 0-10V signal could therefore be resolved into approximately 0.01V increments. A 12-bit representation would be in 212 (4096) increments, or divisions of 0.0024V for the same signal. Each additional bit doubles the resolution, and one bit is required for the polarity (sign) of a number. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value greater than or equal to the specified value.
   Accuracy       Accuracy depends on the signal conditioning linearity, hysteresis, temperature considerations, etc. It is represented here as percent full scale of measurement range. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value less than or equal to the specified value.
   Datalogger / Recorder       Dataloggers and recorders combine instrument functionality with data storage capabilities. They may be designed for general-purpose use or specific applications.
