New Product Preview: ADC-20 and ADC-24 High-Resolution Data Loggers

We are excited to announce the imminent arrival of two new high-performance products, the ADC-20 and ADC-24 High-Resolution Data Loggers: the ultimate in precise and accurate measurement. These will be officially launched by our distributor Meilhaus on the 15th of November at the Productronica show in Munich (Stand A1.175).

With up to 8 differential or 16 single-ended inputs, 0.1% accuracy and an excellent noise-free resolution, these data loggers will be ideal for multichannel recording of scientific experiments and environmental sensors. Their selection of voltage ranges makes them flexible enough for a wide range of signal types. The specially designed terminal board (optional) makes it easy to connect wires to the unit without soldering, and allows you to adapt the units' voltage inputs to record temperature, current, pH and many other variables.

The ADC-24 features:

  • 24-bit resolution
  • 7 bipolar voltage ranges from 39 mV to 2.5 V
  • 0.1% accuracy (on 6 out of 7 ranges)
  • Up to 8 true differential inputs
  • Up to 16 single-ended inputs with common ground
  • Analog inputs galvanically isolated against ground currents
  • Fastest conversion time only 60 ms
  • 4 digital I/O channels
  • USB interface (compatible with USB 1.1 and USB 2.0)
  • Compact, robust unit with simple plug-and-play interface
  • No external power supply required
  • Powerful PicoLog data logging software included

The ADC-20 is similar to the ADC-24 but has 20-bit resolution, 4 differential inputs (or up to 8 single-ended), 2 voltage ranges and no digital I/O channels.

New Automotive Tutorial: Miscellaneous Sensors and Actuators

We have added a new tutorial to the library of automotive topics on our website. Continuing our series on the sensors and actuators that form the engine control system of a modern vehicle, this tutorial covers cranking current, alternator ripple, diesel glow plugs, ABS sensors and road speed sensors. Using example waveforms recorded with the PicoScope software, the article explains how to diagnose problems with these components.

You can read all of our automotive tutorials, free of charge and without registration, on our website.
