The DI-5001 is a fully integrated OEM instrument that provides 32 single-ended or 16 differential analog input channels. The DI-5001 conveniently connects to the printer port of any desktop or portable PC and supports standard, bi-directional, and EPP parallel port modes. Its built-in ADC allows sample rates of once per second to 250,000 samples per second in either triggered or continuous modes. It features two analog outputs with a range of ±10V, and eight each digital inputs and outputs. Signal connections are made directly to the two 40-pin headers. The DI-5001 is offered with your choice of two input measurement ranges: ±10 volts full scale or ±5 volts full scale. Input measurement ranges are as follows:

±10 Volts Full Scale ±5 Volts Full Scale
±10V at a gain of 1 ±5V at a gain of 1
±5V at a gain of 2 ±2.5V at a gain of 2
±2.5V at a gain of 4 ±1.25V at a gain of 4
±1.25V at a gain of 8 ±0.625V at a gain of 8

Connect To Any PC

The DI-5001 connects to the standard, bi-directional, or enhanced parallel port (EPP) of desktop, laptop, or notebook PC's. Includes a six foot parallel port cable and adapter. Optional Ethernet and USB interfaces are available.
