DI-145 USB Data Acquisition Starter Kit
The DI-145 is a new product in a long line of low-cost starter kits from DATAQ Instruments. Suitable for measuring preamplified analog signals, the DI-145 in tandem with the included WinDaq software allows real time data acquisition, playback, and analysis performance equal to or better than other products that cost ten times or more than its low price. Predecessors of this instrument have been sold to over 20,000 hobbyists and professionals for countless data acquisition applications around the world. The DI-145 continues this legacy with an improved interface and noise-cancelling differential analog inputs that are transient-protected to ±150 VDC or peak AC. This is our toughest and most tolerant starter kit ever.
Four Analog Input Channels
Connect the DI-145 to any preamplified signal in the typical range of ±5 to ±10VFS.
10-bit ADC resolution
Provides 19.5 mV resolution across the entire DI-145 measurement range.
All four DI-145 analog inputs and both discrete inputs are over-voltage protected. Accidents that happen are quickly forgiven.
Noise-cancelling Analog Input Configuration
The noise-immunity of differential inputs minimizes the affects of common mode noise so often encountered in industrial measurements.
Built-in USB interface
The DI-145 is provided with a built-in USB interface, allowing it to be connected and run with any laptop or desktop PC. The USB interface provides power to the DI-145, eliminating clumsy external power supplies.
Backward-compatible with DI-194RS Protocol
OEM software that was written to support the DI-194RS protocol will work with the DI-145 in its special DI-194RS emulation mode.
Wide OS support
Signed drivers are provided with the DI-145 that allow trouble-free installation for Windows XP and both 32- and 64-bit versions of Windows Vista and Windows 7.
Included WinDaq/Lite software
Our WinDaq/Lite data acquisition software offers real time display and disk streaming for the Windows environment. The real time display can operate in a smooth scroll or triggered sweep mode of operation, and can be scaled into any unit of measure. Event markers with comments allow you to annotate your data acquisition session with descriptive information as you're recording to disk. Raise your productivity to new heights with WinDaq's unique multitasking feature. Record waveform data to disk in the background while running any combination of programs in the foreground — even WinDaq Playback software to review and analyze the waveform data as it's being stored! Playback supports waveform analysis (Statistics, X-Y plots, frequency analysis) and the ability to export data to Microsoft Excel. WinDaq/Lite recording and playback software is provided free with every DI-145 purchase. See the WinDaq Multimedia Tutorial for more information.
