DAQ Feature - September 2021

Raspberry Pi® DAQ and General Python™ Support
Supporting Raspberry Pi® in OEM and Test and Measurement Applications
MCC has developed a series of DAQ HATs. These HATs offer similar specs and accuracy as traditional USB and Ethernet-based DAQ products from MCC with resolution up to 24-bits and sample rates up to 100 kS/s.
MCC offers five products designed for Test and Measurement applications that conform to the Raspberry Pi HAT standard. These devices provide data acquisition features like analog and digital I/O in a small, stackable format:

Voltage Measurement HATs
MCC 118
is an eight-channel voltage measurement HAT. It allows users to measure 12-bit data at an overall throughput of 100 kS/s.
MCC 128 features 16-bit resolution and includes eight analog inputs with a maximum sample rate of 100 kS/s. Multiple gains ranges are also included which provides users the ability to make precision measurements.

Voltage Output and Digital I/O HAT
MCC 152 provides two 12-bit analog outputs along with eight 5 V or 3.3 V DIO channels enabling the creation of a full multifunction Raspberry Pi measurement and control system.

Thermocouple Measurement HAT
MCC 134
is designed for temperature measurement applications and features four thermocouple input channels. A 24-bit A/D and cold junction compensation provide professional grade accuracy.

IEPE Measurement HAT
MCC 172
is designed for sound and vibration applications and offers two IEPE inputs channels capable of measuring IEPE sensors like accelerometers and microphones without any additional signal conditioning. Inputs can be simultaneously sampled at up to 51.2 kS/s per channel.

MCC DAQ HATs come with software libraries that support Python™ and C/C++® to facilitate quick and easy development. Comprehensive API and hardware documentation are also provided. The DAQ HAT software library was created and is supported by MCC. The development repository is located on GitHub where users can find libraries, examples, firmware updates, and more:
