Provides an inexpensive solution for digitally recording extensometer output. The DSCUSB is a signal conditioner that provides a digital interface to a computer via USB. This allows direct data capture without the need for additional acquisition electronics or an input channel on your controller. Calibration of an extensometer is handled within the DSCUSB with up to 7 linearization points and output readings in the desired units (mV/V, mm, inches, strain). The simple software interface displays the current value as well as providing a trend chart and data logging capabilities. If you wish to interface the DSCUSB with your existing software solution, the DSCUSB can be controlled using a set of ASCII commands through its virtual COM port. A USB cable is included with the DSCUSB.
