IOtech, Cleveland, OH, has released the 6000 Series data acquisition modules with Encore software. The 6220 is a 12-channel, simultaneously sampled, 16-bit voltage input module that features a 100-kHz per channel sample rate. It includes BNC connectors for signal connection. The 6224 is a 12-channel, simultaneously sampled strain gage input module with 24-bit resolution, and a 50-kHz per A/D, per channel rate. It is 100 percent software-programmable, enabling easy strain setup and configuration. Each module also includes 8 digital I/O channels. Systems can be used in a central location or in distributed or remote configurations. Multiple modules can be combined to build expandable, mixed-signal systems.
