Contec ADI16-4(USB) - Isolated Analog Input Terminal for USB2.0

4 16-Bit Differential Analog Inputs


Contec's ADI16-4(USB) is compact USB 2.0 analog input module. ADI16-4(USB) converts external analog voltage signals into digital data. It features four differential analog inputs, each with 16 bit resolution.

Expandable - up to 3 expansion modules (ADI16-4(FIT)GY) can be connected to this host unit, bring the amount of channels to sixteen 16 bit inputs (all connected to the host via one USB cable).

Software support includes a Windows driver/API as well as support for LabVIEW.
