I was offered by a supplier a DAQ Hat for the Raspberry Pi for an upcoming roadtest.
I wanted to get your thoughts about the product. Here's a brief description-
The MCC 172 IEPE Measurement DAQ HAT features two channels for making sound and vibration measurements from IEPE sensors like accelerometers and microphones. It features a 24-bit A/D per channel and a maximum sample rate of 51.2 kS/s/ch. Up to eight MCC HATs can be stacked onto one Raspberry Pi. All DAQ HATs include C/C++ and Python examples and open-source library. Comprehensive API and hardware documentation are also provided. There are five devices in the MCC DAQ HAT Series. Models are available with voltage inputs, thermocouple inputs, IEPE-based sensor inputs, analog outputs, and digital I/O allowing users to configure multifunction, Raspberry Pi-based data logger solutions.
- Two IEPE inputs
- Two 24-bit, 51.2 kS/s A/D converters (one per channel)
- AC coupled at ±5 V
- 10-32 and screw terminal connections for OEM support
- Synchronous ADC conversions between multiple boards
- Onboard sample buffers allow high-speed acquisition
- External digital trigger input
- Choose between the MCC 172 DAQ HAT standalone, bundled with two coaxial cables (3 ft, with 10-32 plug to BNC jack), or the two coaxial cables by themselves
- 2x20 Header connector (plugs into the 40 pin GPIO connector on the Pi board)
- Jumpers (3)
- Standoffs (4)
- Screws (4)
- Nuts (4)
- Printed insert: Getting Started with MCC DAQ HATs
- MCC packaging assembly/foam, etc.
