NORTON, MA -- Measurement Computing Corporation announces the release of two high-speed USB Counter / Timer DAQ devices available with four or eight counter I/O.

The USB-CTR Series feature high-speed pulse counting with a 48 MHz maximum input frequency. Resolution is programmable up to 64-bits, with an aggregate scan rate of 8 MB/sec.

These new devices offer some of the most advanced counter / timer functionality available in USB DAQ today. Supported high-level input modes include totalize, period measurement, pulse-width measurement, and timing measurement. Four independent PWM timer outputs and 8 digital I/O are also provided. Timer output channels can operate continuously or for a specified pulse count, with duty cycle and period changeable on-the-fly. Counter and digital channels can also be scanned synchronously. Flexible edge, level, direction, and debounce settings allow the counters to better adapt to user signals.

USB-CTR Series features:
• 4 or 8 counter I/O
• 48 MHz maximum input frequency
• Programmable resolution up to 64-bits per counter
• Aggregate scan rate of 8 MB/s
• Supports the following counter input modes: ◦Totalize
