APPLICATIONS

The EMANT380 is a low-cost and compact 24 bit wireless (DAQ) data acquisition module developed for learning purposes. As a wireless DAQ module, it is useful in appplications where isolation is important. It can be used readily with a desktop personal computer for data acquisition and control. When connected to a notebook or smartphone, portability is achieved.

Together with the communication capabilities inherent in the computer or smartphone, it allows learners to experiment and design solutions that capture, control, compute and collaborate with the world.

The high resolution 24 bit ADC, Differential Inputs & Programmable Gain Amplifier simplifies sensor connection. Learners can connect thermocouples, load cells and strain gauges directly to measure temperature, weight and strain without needing expensive and sophisticated signal conditioning.

The 8 bit current output DAC allows users to measure resistance directly. Thus, resistive sensors like thermistors can be connected directly to measure temperature.

The 16 but counter can be used to measure flow rate or RPM. When the counter is not used, its clock can be used for 16 bit PWM output for heating or motor control experiments.

Bluetooth allows for wireless connection

SOFTWARE SUPPORT AVAILABLE

4 icons (LabVIEW) or 7 lines of code (C# on .NET) later, the learner has created a voltage meter. Python is also supported

LabVIEW driver (ver 7.0 or later)

.NET driver for use with C#, VB and C++ (.NET Framework 1.1 or later)
Typical C# project video

double volt;
EMANT300 DAQ = new EMANT300();
DAQ.Open(false,"COM6");
DAQ.ConfigAnalog(1.5,Emant300.POLARITY.Unipolar, 100, Emant300.VREF.V1_25, false);
volt = DAQ.ReadAnalog(Emant300.AIN.AIN0, Emant300.AIN.COM);
Console.WriteLine(volt);
DAQ.Close();

Python driver (Python 2.5 or later)
Typical Python project video

import Emant
m = Emant.Emant300()
m.Open("COM6")
volt, binval = m.ReadAnalog(Emant.Emant300.AIN0,Emant.Emant300.COM)
print volt
m.Close()

Using the internet connectivity, the same voltage can now be read across the world using email, browser or messenger. Using a Win Mobile or Symbian S60 smartphone, this information is now accessible wherever there is a phone signal.

Simple examples are provided with instructional guide to allow the learner to explore and build on the knowledge.
