Analog Output Data Acquisition (DAQ) Products

Analog Output boards are useful when you need an output where the condition is not just an on or off state. Analog Output boards convert digital values generated by software into the analog voltage or current signals required for controlling frequency inverters, valves, sliders, brightness of lights, or things controlled by motors and other mechnical transducers.

Ideal applications include light control, motion control, and process controls.

Select from an assortment of 12 and 16-bit USB, PCI, PC/104, and remote analog output modules. The multifunction USB-AO series offers 4, 8, or 16 analog outputs, 2 analog inputs, along with 16 lines of digital I/O. For those of you that require waveform outputs, our USB-DA12-8A features eight individual 12-bit D/A converters with full Arbitrary Waveform Generator functionality (AWG/ARB) and up to 125 KSample/second simultaneously on eight channels.
