Quanser ground-breaking USB data acquisition technology delivers reliable real-time performance via a USB interface. The Q8-USB data acquisition device offers an extensive range of hardware features and software support capabilities. Quanser DAQ technology combined with standard connector interfaces ensure easy and quick access to signals.
With low I/O conversion times and easy connectivity, the Q8-USB is ideal for teaching control concepts, as you can achieve up to 2 kHz closed-loop control rate. This control rate is superior to any other commercially available USB-DAQ technology.
When combined with Quanser power amplifier and control design software, the Q8-USB provides a convenient rapid prototyping and Hardware-In-The-Loop (HIL) development environment. With a wide range of inputs and outputs, you can easily connect and control s variety of devices instrumented with analog and digital sensors, including encoders - all with one board.
The Q8-USB is supported by the QUARC Blockset in Simulink®, the RCP Toolkit in LabVIEW™, and the HIL SDK which provides APIs for C, C++, ActiveX, .NET, and MATLAB® script.
