Facts about USB Analog Output Modules

Applications USB Analog Output Modules can be used for

In the case a data acquisition and control solution is required for any task, LucidControl USB IO Modules are perfect because of handling digital and analog signals too.

The LucidControl automation solution is inexpensive and additionally ready for mobile solution as a result of being USB powered and there are no extra power adapters needed. A conventional connection to the USB is enough in order to make the equipment running.

The LucidControl USB Analog Output Module can be integrated without much hassle to switch cabinets which are quite common in automation business mainly because of the flexible DIN-rail mountable housing. And for reliable applications it is also advantageous that the units are equipped with durable and industrial standard plugable terminal connections.

Applications for e.g. measuring temperatures as they are typical in the do-it-yourself field can be realized tidy and straight forward by adding the USB Analog Output Module into distribution cabinets.

In the training division, LucidControl can be utilized by students to do their first steps in automated programming. Because of an extensive user manual, high quality programming tools and APIs for several important programming environments and additionally their straight forward usage make the units a great automation solution for starters as well as for specialists.

With no need for additional driver software, the units are working immediately with many popular computers and support Microsoft Windows as well as Linux OS. In addition to ordinary PC, LucidControl USB Analog Output Modules are also compatible with mini-sized computers such as the Raspberry Pi what makes the IO modules most useful.

This makes all features of the input output units being available via the world wide web and to create web based applications on embedded computers running with Linux operating system.

Characteristics of the USB Analog Output Module

USB Analog Output Module

The LucidControl USB Analog Output Module stands for 1 type of IO Modules that are ready to manage analog lines such as currents. LucidControl USB analog output modules have the ability to create four output voltage or current channels.

The outputs manage voltages within the ranges of 5V, 10V and 24V fulfilling the challenging requirements of plenty of automation projects.

Taking the analog voltage interfaces of 0-10 and 0-24V as an example, they stand for two ranges which are crucial for the building field and are supported by the USB analog output module.

One additional analog interface which is commonly employed are current loops specified at 4-20mA which can be realized by using the 0-20mA selection of the USB Analog Output Module.

Managing a central heating system and managing lights are only two illustrations of typical use cases the analog output modules can be used for.

An application of the 4-20mA current loops is the transmission of analog data over extended cables where transmission loss is not tolerable and must be avoided in all circumstances which can be reached by sourcing the cable with a current instead a voltage.

The LucidControl USB Analog Output Module is also avail for symmetrical voltages of e.g. -12V-12V which enables the unit to generate output values of -24V-24V by combining two output lines to one supplying enhanced range.

By providing a excellent trade-off regarding cost and precision, the LucidControl USB Analog Output Module is an excellent option by offering a resolution of 12 bits together with a typical precision of 0.25 percent for the entire value range.

Our companies focus is it to equip LucidControl USB I/O Components with plenty of interfaces to make them ready nearly all kind of purposes. More details relating to the LucidControl USB IO Modules can be found on our website.
