The DAQ1000 allows you to connect up to eight analog sensors or devices. This Phidget connects to your computer through a VINT Hub.

Features:

  • Measure 0-5V - Interface with 5V sensors and monitor small voltages using the Voltage Input mode.
  • Read ratiometric sensors like potentiometers and voltage dividers using the Voltage Ratio mode
  • Adjust sample rate - You can change the sample rate of each input separately, to speeds of up to 50 samples per second
  • Automatic conversion from voltage to measurement units - select sensor type and the Phidgets library handles the rest

VINT Hubs

This Phidget is a smart device that must be controlled by a VINT Hub. For more information about VINT, have a look at the VINT Primer. You can use a Phidget Cable to simply and easily connect the two devices. Here's a list of all of the different VINT Hubs currently available:

Product Board
Image Part Number Price Number of VINT Ports Controlled By
HUB0000_0 $30.00 6 USB (Mini-USB)
HUB5000_0 $60.00 6 Local Network (Ethernet or Wi-Fi)
SBC3003_0 $120.00 6

Phidget Cables

Use a Phidget cable to connect this device to the hub and to connect sensors to this Phidget. Each analog sensor will come with its own Phidget cable, but if you need extras we have a full list down below. You can solder multiple cables together in order to make even longer Phidget cables, but you should be aware of the effects of having long wires in your system.

Part 1: Setup

Welcome to the DAQ1000 user guide! In order to get started, make sure you have the following hardware on hand:

Next, you will need to connect the pieces:

DAQ1000 Functional.jpeg
  1. Connect the DAQ1000 to the VINT Hub using the Phidget cable.
  2. Connect the VINT Hub to your computer with a USB cable.
  3. Connect a Phidgets sensor or other 5V device to one of the DAQ1000's inputs.


Phidget Control Panel

In order to demonstrate the functionality of the DAQ1000, the Phidget Control Panel running on a Windows machine will be used.


The Phidget Control Panel is available for use on both macOS and Windows machines.

Windows

To open the Phidget Control Panel on Windows, find the Ph.jpg icon in the taskbar. If it is not there, open up the start menu and search for Phidget Control Panel

Windows PhidgetTaskbar.PNG

macOS

To open the Phidget Control Panel on macOS, open Finder and navigate to the Phidget Control Panel in the Applications list. Double click on the Ph.jpg icon to bring up the Phidget Control Panel.


For more information, take a look at the getting started guide for your operating system:


Linux users can follow the getting started with Linux guide and continue reading here for more information about the DAQ1000.

First Look

After plugging the DAQ1000 into your computer and opening the Phidget Control Panel, you will see something like this:

DAQ1000 Panel.jpg


The Phidget Control Panel will list all connected Phidgets and associated objects, as well as the following information:

  • Serial number: allows you to differentiate between similar Phidgets.
  • Channel: allows you to differentiate between similar objects on a Phidget.
  • Version number: corresponds to the firmware version your Phidget is running. If your Phidget is listed in red, your firmware is out of date. Update the firmware by double-clicking the entry.


The Phidget Control Panel can also be used to test your device. Double-clicking on an object will open an example.

Part 2: Using Your Phidget

About

The DAQ1000 has eight ports that connect to analog sensors. Each port has two modes: Voltage Input (for ordinary 5V sensors) and Voltage Ratio Input (for ratiometric sensors). The Phidgets library allows you to select your Phidget sensors’ part numbers to automatically convert the voltage into appropriate measurement units.

Explore Your Phidget Channels Using The Control Panel

You can use your Control Panel to explore your Phidget's channels.

1. Open your Control Panel, and you will find the following channels:

DAQ1000 Panel.jpg

2. Double click on a channel to open an example program. Each channel belongs to the Voltage Input or Voltage Ratio Input channel class:

Voltage Input: Non-ratiometric Analog sensors and monitoring 5V digital circuits

In your Control Panel, double click on "Voltage Input":

DAQ1000-VoltageInput.jpg
Voltage Ratio Input: Analog ratiometric sensors

In your Control Panel, double click on "Voltage Ratio Input":

Part 3: Create your Program

1. Setting up your Programming Environment

2. Phidget Programming Basics

Part 4: Advanced Topics and Troubleshooting

How do I know what channel, serial number, or hub port to use in my program?

Before you open a Phidget channel in your program, you can set these properties to specify which channel to open. You can find this information through the Control Panel.

1. Open the Control Panel and double-click on the red map pin icon:

The locate Phidget button is found in the device information box

2. The Addressing Information window will open. Here you will find all the information you need to address your Phidget in your program.

All the information you need to address your Phidget


See the Phidget22 API for your language to determine exact syntax for each property.

Setting the Change Trigger and Data Interval

The Change Trigger is the minimum change in the sensor data needed to trigger a new data event. The Data Interval is the time (in ms) between data events sent out from your Phidget. You can modify one or both of these values to achieve different data outputs. You can learn more about these two properties here.
