The MNP-12 allows one-channel sampling at 25 kHz and two-channel sampling at 5 kHz. Slower sampling speeds are available with selectable digital FIR anti-alias filters. The input impedance of 1 Mohm matches applications in conditioned sensor data acquisition and low-voltage circuit testing. The user can demonstrate proof-of-concept in handheld measurements such as temperature and biophysical force and voltage. The selectable sampling rate, input voltage range, and data storage functions meet requirements for general-purpose data logging. The connector on the MNP-12 is a low profile, removable micro-connector with a locking mechanism. The MNP-12 size and low-power shutdown mode allow the unit to reside in the expansion slot continuously without disrupting normal PDA functions.The Extra*Digit will be released in 4-6 weeks at a cost of $350(!).
The graphical user interface controls the data acquisition functions of the system through a simplified oscilloscope-type interface that provides the primary control knobs as buttons on the start-up screen. Data transfer from the Visor is through an FTP connection. "Distributed measurement and control systems require a network model of information transport, authentication, and analysis. Our implementation allows secure data transfer across any TCP/IP channel, including the Internet," explained Michael Klinglesmith, Ph.D., Chief Technical Officer of Pacific Microinstruments.
