Designed to meet the needs of a wide range of general–purpose voltage, sensor and transducer logging applications, the PicoLog 1000 Multi–Channel DAQ Series feature independent software–configurable scaling and control outputs, an external terminal board for custom front–end circuitry and a choice of 10– or 12–bit input resolution.
• Up to 16 input channels per data logger
• Up to 4 output channels per data logger
• Use up to 4 data loggers at the same time
• Up to 1 MS/s sample rate
• USB connected and powered
• Data acquisition software and SDK included
A distinguished pedigree
The PicoLog 1000 Series is the result of a distinguished lineage that goes back to the release of our first multi–channel data logger — the ADC-11 — in 1993. The original ADC-11, and its successor the USB ADC-11, proved to be the perfect choice for users wanting a low–cost way to measure and record multiple signals. The PicoLog 1000 Series builds on this success to give you the same low–cost data acquisition but with greater power and performance. (Because the ADC-11 was so popular we’ve also added a USB ADC-11 compatibility mode which allows you to use your PicoLog 1000 logger as a direct replacement to the USB ADC-11.)
An expandable multi–channel data acquisition system
The budget model PicoLog 1012 has 12 input channels. The powerful PicoLog 1216 has 16. Need more channels? No problem. Using PicoLog you can connect up to 4 Pico data loggers to one PC — giving you a potential 64 channel PicoLog 1000 Series data acquisition system, or the ability to use your PicoLog 1000 logger with other devices such as the USB TC-08 Thermocouple Data Logger.
Fast and accurate
With 10– or 12–bit resolution and multiple sampling modes, a PicoLog 1000 Series logger will meet your data logging needs. The PicoLog 1000 Series has 3 sampling modes: Streaming mode allows channel voltage readings to be logged continuously at up to 100 kS/s, while block mode captures up to the full 1 MS/s sample rate of the logger for a duration limited by the 8000 sample buffer, both these speeds applying to single–channel operation. The PicoLog application provides an extra mode, real–time continuous sampling, which provides averaged, time–accurate readings with automatic measurements at up to 1 kS/s on any number of channels.
Control alarms and other devices
The PicoScope 1000 Series data loggers include digital outputs — including one with pulse–width modulation control (PicoLog 1216 only). These outputs can be used to control alarms or other devices, additionally these can also be used to power sensors such as thermistors.
It’s all you need
Your PicoLog 1000 Series multi–channel data acquisition (DAQ) device includes all you need to start measuring and recording. A full suite of software is included in the price and consists of PicoLog data logging package, the PicoScope oscilloscope package — which provides measurement capabilities while allowing you to view all 16 channels at once — and an SDK for using the PicoLog 1000 within your own software, or third party software such as LabVIEW. Additionally, includes a terminal board with screw terminals that lets you easily and quickly connect your sensors to the logger. The board also has solder pads on which you can fit resistors to widen the measuring range for each input.
