Measurement Computing / IOtech DAC488 12-Bit D/A Converter

  • (4) 12-Bit Isolated D/A Converters
  • Programmable Ranges or Auto Ranging (±1, ±5, or ±10)
  • Built-in 8192-Point Waveform Buffer
  • Sequenced Output Based on Either a Periodic Interval or Triggered Condition
  • 8-bit Digital Input Port and 8-bit Digital Output Port
  • Analog Output Channels are Isolated


DAC488/4™ is an IEEE 488 to 12-bit plus-sign analog output converter. The unit has four analog output channels that are isolated from IEEE 488 common and from other analog channels by up to 500V. Each channel can be programmed for full-scale output of ±1V, ±5V, or ± 10V. You can program each channel for output in increments of 1 part in 4096 plus sign. Outputs can be specified in either volts or bits from the IEEE 488 bus. A quickdisconnect terminal block provides convenient signal connection.

An 8 Ksample waveform buffer allows you to store waveforms for each channel with a maximum update rate of 1 kHz per sample. Each waveform can be output in sequence, based on either a periodic interval or one of three trigger conditions: an external trigger, a trigger command, or the group execute command (GET) IEEE 488 bus command. Each port can be triggered independently via any of the trigger conditions.

Eight bits of digital input and eight bits of digital output are also provided. These are TTL-level non-isolated lines that can be programmed from the IEEE 488 bus.

InstraView™ Equipment Inspection

Buying used equipment doesn't always have to be a shot in the dark. We know there are plenty of differences when it comes to used equipment and quite often, choosing between different pieces is difficult, especially when the equipment is not sitting right in front of you.
