Scientific Solutions LabTender / ISA card

Four key data acquisition and control functions (on one PC board) are included in a high performance, cost effective package.

The LabTender was first introduced in 1981. It has been available and supported continuously ever since, and is used in many diverse applications including laboratory testing, entertainment/training flight simulators, and factory automation.

The newest version of the LabTender expands the original features - increasing the D/A and A/D data from 8 bit to 16 bit, increasing the sink/source current of the Digital I/O, and reducing the physical size to fit in slim computers.

Great care is taken in the design and manufacturing of the LabTender to insure a quality product that provides accuracy and stability for demanding applications. Its feature-full rugged design and reliability make it ideal for acquiring and analyzing data in industrial, scientific, and educational fields.

Note: The LabTender uses switch settings to configure the Base Address of the card. Normally, it is shipped from Scientific Solutions with a base address setting of 0330h. Some applications may require a different address. You will need to consult the manual with the software you are using.

Part Number LabTender is available in two versions:
020028 - Version with a Counter / Timer
020128 - Version Without a Counter / Timer
Title LabTender / ISA
Overview

Four key data acquisition and control functions are included in a high performance, very cost competitive package. 32 single-ended or 16 differential Analog Input channels, 16 Analog output channels, five 16-bit precision timer/counters, and 24 lines of TTL compatible digital I/O complete this multipurpose data acquisition and control product.

We offer two versions of the LabTender; one with the Counter / Timer feature and another without. Some applications, such as motion control simulation do not use the counter/timer and so these applications would use the version without this feature. If you are unsure if you need this feature or not, look at the Full Description and Specifications and there is a section that helps you to determine what you need.
