MATLAB® Support for MCC Products

 

 

KEY HIGHLIGHTS

MATLAB® is a software environment for data acquisition (DAQ) and analysis, and application development. The MATLAB Data Acquisition Toolbox supports MCC data acquisition (DAQ) devices, and allows data streaming and analysis live into MATLAB. Collected data can be brought into the MATLAB for fast and accurate analysis and manipulation.

Supported by MATLAB’s Data Acquisition Toolbox™ for many MCC products

Communicate with data acquisition hardware and measure data to be streamed live

Data collected using the test and measurement tools can be imported directly into the MATLAB workspace for fast and accurate data analysis, data manipulation, and pre- and post-processing

Visit www.MathWorks.com for more information on MATLAB Data Acquisition Toolbox support

Now supports 64-bit (R2017a) and 32-bit (prior to R2016a) versions of MATLAB

Hi! I thought it must be done with InstCal but it only allows to change the input mode of the channels but not the voltage range. In MatLab it is possible to see the right property after adding the channels but it READ ONLY! With singled ended channels the range is +/- 10V and with differential +/-20V. There is no way to set for example +/- 2.5 V? Thanks, Leo

For the USB-1208FS model, in single-ended mode, the hardware has only one input range (+/- 10V). But in differential mode, there are 8 ranges. Be sure not to have MATLAB and InstaCal open at the same time, in case MATLAB is not picking up the differential setting made in InstaCal. Close both all the way, and open just one or the other. This is the likely cause, since MATLAB has been confirmed to work properly (MATLAB does list 8 input ranges with this DAQ model in differential mode).

When using InstaCal, I can configure the scan rate to 10MHz, but in MATLAB the top rate is at 1MHz. Is there a way to increase that?

Hello - That sounds like rate limit decision that needs to be fixed at the sessions driver level, as the hardware can run faster. Please contact The Mathworks to report the issue.

I am trying to create a program for acquiring data with an MCC USB-1602 device with the session-based approach in Matlab 2017a. I have downloaded Measurement Computings hardware support package. I can create a session and add channels to it. I can use it to gather data. So far everything is ok. The problem is that I cannot add triggers to the session object. When I use the function "addTriggerConnection" I get the following error: "Method 'addTriggerConnection' is not supported on objects of class 'daq.sdk.Session'." When I try to debug, I feel like there are things missing from the vendor specific session subclass. Am I perhaps missing something here?

The Mathworks recently released this driver, and they note on their website that it does not support triggered acquisition. You could contact them to request a timeframe for adding this feature.

I see from previous answers that MCC is supported in the 2017a version of Matlab. I have this version and still cannot use mcc for the session-based daq toolbox. I attempt to use the "daq.createSession" command in Matlab, but MCC is Not among the supported vendors. Please advise.

Hello Patrik, In addition to having MathWorks’ Data Acquisition Toolbox for MATLAB R2017a installed, the user must also download and install the ‘Data Acquisition Toolbox Support Package for Measurement Computing Hardware’ from them: https://www.mathworks.com/hardware-support/measurement-computing.html Also, prior to launching MATLAB R2017a, the MCC daq device must be configured in InstaCal (then keep InstaCal closed).

I could not find any example for usb 1608 FS to interface with matlab? The provided video seems not right when I input command "analoginput('mcc',0)", the matlab does not recognize the DAQ device. Could you make some tutorials or some source to share with us on how to write DAQ interface using matlab with measurement compution devices? Thanks

Answers

The video is valid for the USB-1608FS as well. First, make sure the USB-1608FS is assigned board # 0 in InstaCal. Do not have InstaCal and MATLAB open at the same time. Also make sure you have 32-bit MATLAB (not 64-bit, as it will have a new driver from The Mathworks sometime next year). You will also need to install MATLAB’s Data Acquisition Toolbox.

Answers

Yes, you can generate a 0-20 mA current output using your USB-3106 for application purposes. First you must set your output range from within InstaCal. You then have to set up the compliance voltage circuit needed to create a 0-20mA signal (see page 16 of the User’s manual). Once this has been done you have a couple of options for controlling your USB-3106. You can use TracerDAQ PRO, DASYLab, ULx for LabVIEW or our Universal Library for .NET.

The driver for MATLAB is written and maintained by the folks at The Mathworks. They have yet to add support for 64-bit MATLAB, per the following note on their website: Note: You must use the Legacy interface and the 32-bit version of Data Acquisition Toolbox and MATLAB to use Measurement Computing data acquisition hardware. The 32-bit versions of Data Acquisition Toolbox and MATLAB can be installed on a 64-bit Windows OS.

Answers

Hello - The range for each channel on the USB-3100 Series is indeed set in InstaCal. At our library level, values of 0 to 65535 are accepted, with 0 corresponding to minus full scale, and 65535 corresponding to plus full scale. Since you report that MATLAB is assuming the output range is a voltage, then you should be able to send out fractional voltages. You should be able to achieve the desired “current” resolution by requesting to output a voltage with enough significant digits to the right of the decimal point. Four places to the right of the decimal point, i.e. 0.0001 volts, will be more than enough.

The MathWorks added support for the USB-1608FS, and its previous name (PMD-1608FS), many years ago. There is a list on The MathWorks’ website which details the version needed (of their DAQ Toolbox) for each supported DAQ model. For USB-1608FS, they list R14SP3+ (version 2.8). For PMD-1608FS, they list R14 (version 2.5).

Answers

Hi Freeman - Be sure not to confuse the USB-3101FS with the USB-3101, since they are quite different. The USB-3101 hardware can only be updated at a rate of 100 Hz divided by the number of channels used. MATLAB likely can keep right up with this slow rate. The 100 KHz USB-3101FS model is not supported by the Mathwork’s DAQ Toolbox for MATLAB.
