Data Translation Announces Isolated USB Analog Output Modules Enhanced to Continuously Stream Data

Up to 8kHz Waveforms now Supported

Marlboro, MA ─ June 6, 2013 ─ Data Translation, Inc., an industry leader in data acquisition, today announced that it has increased the performance of its 4 and 8 channel analog output modules to provide continuous waveform streaming. These DAC modules, the DT9853 and DT9854, now allow up to 8 kHz waveforms to be supplied for industrial testing, control loop, and process control applications.


"Industrial customers have liked the galvanic isolation and current output capability of the DT9853/4 series, but needed continuous output to operate valves, motors, and energy control devices," according to Fred Molinari, CEO.

The DT9853 and DT9854 offer voltage outputs of 0 to 10V, 10V as well as 0 to 20mA for current drive outputs to reduce line drop errors. The output DACs are 16-bit, have 16 lines of Digital I/O, and 1 32-bit counter timer at 1MHz to measure events.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
