Product Description

The SER1CH-UA-1in is a 1 channel, 24 bit realtime continuous data acquisition system with a very low power consumption of 600 microamps. At only 1" wide, it is well suited to borehole applications.

Suitable for use with potentiometers and other ratiometric applications, a buffered copy of the A/D reference is provided for sensor excitation. The systems samples at 1Hz with a full scale input voltage range of 0 to 5 volts. Sitting outside of the PC for improved noise performance, it comes in a sturdy anodized aluminum case, communicating acquired data to the PC using a standard RS232 serial port.

A full featured DVM acquisition and display program is included with the system software, so you can be up and running immediately and continuously saving acquired data to disk. For developing custom applications, low level functions for controlling the system are supplied as static and DLL libraries. Windows and Linux software is provided.

The bundled "in the box" system comes with all the accessories you need to start acquiring data immediately. These include software, PDF User Manual, 9 VDC power supply, 6' RS232 serial cable, header cables for analog input (HDR6 to alligator clips) and power/RS232 (HDR8 to 2.1mm power jack and female DB09 RS232), and desktop enclosure.
