DataLab - Industrial input/output devices
 Modular industrial input/output devices with USB or Ethernet interface

The modular Industrial System DataLab IO allows users to configure the number, type, and direction of the measured signals exactly to fit the application. All DataLab IO units include a universal CPU unit to which I/O modules can be connected according to the type of signals (analog inputs and outputs, digital inputs and outputs, counter inputs, relay modules, platinum thermometer modules, etc.). CPU units for one, two or four modules are available.

DataLab IoT

DataLab IO driver for Control Web
 The driver provides digital and analog values of input/output modules of DataLab IO4 and DataLab IO1 devices to the Control Web application or to any application capable to communicate with Active X components.
Industrial input/output system DataLab IO/ETH with Ethernet interface
 Modular system of industrial input/output devices DataLab IO allows users to configure numbers, types and directions of measured and controlled signals to perfectly fit the particular application. All DataLab IO devices contain universal CPU core, to which are attached various I/O modules according to signal type (analog and digital inputs and outputs, counter inputs, relay modules, modules for platinum thermometers etc.). There are CPU cores for one, two and four I/O modules available. CPU cores with USB interface offer very easy application (USB is Plug-and-Play), simple connection with standard USB cable, the possibility to power the device through the same cable and fully automatic configuration. The disadvantage of USB connection is limited length to 5 m. This disadvantage is completely eliminated by new CPU core for four modules with 10/100 Mbit Ethernet interface.
New DataLab IF/CAN interface unit
 The DataLab IF series of industrial bus interface devices was expanded with a new DataLab IF/CAN device. This interface device communicates with a host PC through fast USB connection and offers two independent, isolated interfaces for CAN bus. Communication speed of the CAN bus is 10 to 1000 kbit/s. The device is powered from USB connection.
New Analog Input/Output Module for DataLab IO
 Our customers feedback resulted into construction of the new precision analog input/output module, which combines 16-bit analog inputs (functionally identical to the AI3 module) and 12-bit analog outputs (functionally identical to the AO1 module). The new AIO1 module offers “one half” of each module—4 input and 4 output analog channels.
New DataLab IO2 industrial I/O device with USB 2.0
 New DataLab IO2 unit was added to the already very successful family of modular I/O devices DataLab IO. New device can handle two I/O modules, so it is positioned just between DataLab IO4, intended for four modules, and DataLab IO1, which can work with just one module. The new CPU unit fills the size gap in the current DataLab IO line and is especially appealing with the introduction of new combined analog/digital input/output modules. The whole family thus gains flexibility and usability—the I/O part of the automation solution can be designed to better fit user needs for less money.
New Modules for DataLab IO
 The DataLab IO system of industrial input/output devices was extended by two new modules furthermore enhancing its capabilities—AD2 (combined analog input/output and digital input/output module) and RTD1 (module for Resistive Temperature Detectors).

I/O modules for DataLab IO
 Industrial input/output devices DataLab IO have modular design. It is possible to connect four modules to DataLab IO4, two modules to DataLab IO2 and one module to DataLab IO1. The basic DataLab IO device handles USB traffic and provides the power, while I/O modules perform the specified I/O operations.
DataLab IO—modular system of industrial I/O devices
 DataLab IO is a family of industrial I/O units with USB interface. Modular design of DataLab IO devices enables combination of I/O modules according to application needs—DataLab IO units have one, two or four slots for modules providing digital or analog inputs or outputs, counter inputs, inputs for various Resistance Temperature Detectors etc.
