Contec DAI12-4(USB)GY - Analog Output Terminal for USB2.0

4 12-Bit Analog Outputs


Contec's DAI12-4(USB)GY is a USB2.0-compliant analog I/O unit that extends the analog I/O function of USB port of PCs. It provides 4 analog output channels (12 bit resolution).

The unit is housed in a compact design which allows installation in many applications (50.4(W) x 64.7(D) x 94(H)), The unit can be mounted via DIN rail or free-standing.

Expandable - increase the number of analog outputs up to 16 channels via the use of up to 3 additional expansion modules (DAI12-4(FIT)GY)

Software support includes a Windows driver/API.
