Controlling voltage outputs with the USB Analog Output Module

USB Analog Output Module

LucidControl consist of a range of unique USB IO Modules for analog and digital control and data acquisition which are helpful in various projects.

LucidControl IO Modules can be integrated without much hassle into switch cabinets being really common in automation sector because of the versatile DIN-rail mountable enclosure. Additionally, the I/O units are supplied with high reliable and also plugable connections which is beneficial for most applications in general.

The IO Modules are USB power supplied and work stand-alone without the need for extra adapters which makes LucidControl a low-cost equipment also for mobile products. In order to run the equipment the primarily stuff that is needed is actually a link with a a conventional USB port.

LucidControl is the perfect system for both, starters as well as experts since they provide extensive software utilities and also SDKs for many programming environments which makes their usage totally straight forward. In the training field, the equipment can be used by students to get their first experiences in automated development.

For the do-it-yourself branch the low-cost input and output units can also be added to distribution cabinets making it simple realizing a tidy and straight forward design e.g. for controlling lights.

Without needing extra drivers, the devices are operating instantly with many relevant computers and work with MS Windows® and also Linux operating systems.

In addition to conventional personal computers LucidControl USB USB IO Modules are also compatible with embedded computers like the Raspberry Pi which makes the I/O modules extremely usable. Making use of Linux operating system these small computers are absolutely best prepared in order to create Internet programms and make all IO functionality available through the Internet.

Functions of the USB Analog Output Module

For handling analog signals such as voltages, the USB Analog Output Module and the USB Analog Input Module stand for this type of IO Module and are equipped for acquiring and generating analog based channels. The USB Analog Output Module is prepared to generate four output voltage and current signals.

To be prepared the hard specifications of plenty of tasks, the USB DAC lines are ready to generate voltages in the ranges of 5V, 10V and 24V. Taking the analog voltage interfaces of 0-10V and 0-24V as an example, they represent 2 value ranges which are significant in the building sector and are covered by the USB Analog Output Module.

The USB Analog Output Module of the LucidControl USB IO product series are also available with current outputs delivering 0-22mA made for current loop connections which have usually 4-20mA range.

Managing a central heating system and dimming illumination are only 2 kinds of everyday use cases the USB Analog Output Module can be utilized for.

To avoid signal loss on the line at any price the analog output module is prepared to generate 4-20mA current loops which allow transmitting of analog signals over extended distances loss free.

Output voltages in the range of -24V-24V can be reached by merging two channels of the USB DAC Module with negative -12V-12V selection to one enhanced channel.

The analog voltage output unit is employing a Digital to Analog Converter (DAC) providing a resolution of 12 bits and guarantees a characteristic accuracy of 0.25% providing an excellent compromise regarding price and precision what is highly suitable for many managing tasks.

Our products focus is it to equip the IO Devices with numerous interfaces to make these products ready for most purposes. Extra information relating to the LucidControl Universal Serial Bus I/O modules are available on our web page.
