DI-1110 USB Data Acquisition starter kit with Windaq software. Features eight differential analog input channels (Unlock Code required for more than 4 channels), 12-bit measurement resolution, and a full scale range of ±10V.

Model DI-1110 delivers premium analog performance at a surprisingly affordable price. Eight analog input channels provide differential measurement flexibility over a ±10 V range. The differential input configuration provides noise rejection, easily adapts to single-ended signal sources, and is protected to ±100 V so that inevitable measurement mishaps will not harm the instrument. The front end feeds a 12-bit ADC with a maximum sampling throughput rate of the 160 kHz to provide pure data acquisition power at an unmatched price point.

The DI-1110 provides 7 digital ports, each configurable as an input or a switch. Input protection is provided to 25 V. When activated as inputs, two ports allow dual functionality as discrete inputs, or can be programmed as a counter or rate input respectively. The rate input features a 50 kHz maximum measurement allocated over twelve programmable measurement ranges (10 Hz to 50 kHz full scale.) The counter input provides 16-bit resolution and a terminal count value of 65,535. The discrete, counter, and rate inputs are members of the same internal scan list used by the analog input channels. So, all enabled elements are acquired synchronously, which allows meaningful comparisons between analog and digital channels. For example, the rate input measuring engine speed allows rpm data to be acquired in lock-step with analog data. Configured as a switch a digital port can be used to control external loads up to 25 V @ 100 mA, and the switch can be controlled asynchronously during scanning.
