The different USB IO Modules explained in detail
LucidControl are made of a range of different IO modules for analog and digital control and data acquisition that are helpful in countless monitoring projects.
The LucidControl USB IO Equipment is lowest priced and also prepares for movable applications since being USB powered and there is no need for additional adapters.
In order to run the equipment the only thing that is needed is actually a link with a an ordinary Universal serial bus interface.
The versatile and DIN-rail mountable housing makes the units best prepared for the automation business since it enables their easy addition into distribution boxes. In addition, the IO equipment is supplied with most reliable and also plug-able terminal contacts which is helpful for projects in general. Applications for e.g. controlling a central heating equipment which are very common in the DIY branch can be realized clean and straight forward by integrating the units into distribution cabinets.
Because of an complete documentation, high quality programming utilities and libraries for several relevant development languages and also their simple use make the units an excellent automation solution for beginners as well as for specialists. Trainees can make their first programming experiences with LucidControl and benefit from a big learning curve.
Most OS like Microsoft Windows and Linux are supported by LucidControl Universal Serial Bus input output units immediately not needing driver setup. In addition to ordinary personal computers they work also together with small computers such as the Raspberry Pi what makes the input and output units extremely usable. Using Linux OS these small computers are very best prepared to build database programs making all input and output functionality available via the Internet.
Flexible LucidControl USB Analog Input Modules briefly described
The analog capture (DAQ) and output devices stand for 1 type of IO modules that are able to acquire and generate analog signals e.g. voltages.
The LucidControl USB Analog Input Module can meter 4 analog signals.
The inputs are available for voltage ranges of 5V, 10V and 24V furthermore symmetrical capturing options having -5V to 5V, -10V to 10V and also a -24V to 24V can be selected.
Especially analog voltage lines of 0-10 and 0-24V are usually utilized in the building field.
Common measurement devices such as wind detectors create 0-10V interfaces where the captured signal is proportional to the metered wind velocity and therefore the 0-10V selection of the USB analog input module fits best to work this kind of devices.
Additionally, the LucidControl USB analog output module is also able to meter the output line of a flow sensor that usually creates an analog signal relative to the mass of fluid flew through the sensor per time unit.
A high resolution of fourteen bit grants a tolerance of 0.25% spread over the entire measurement range of the Universal Serial Bus analog acquisition module.
The built-in input processing level filtrates disturbances from the acquired signal, improving the digitalized line making it extremely exact.
Regarding precision the 0-10V option of the LucidControl Universal Serial Bus analog input module captures a connected voltage with +/- 25mV tolerance which is an excellent compromise regarding costs and accuracy while being sufficient for plenty control purposes.
In order to make the product as useful as feasible and also to manage the majority of possible projects, it is our products aim to handle many analog and digital signals with this USB IO Components.
