USB-CTR08
February 06, 2019
Great Product, Documentation, Support

The product very much suited our needs for a combined pulse counting / and a timing application. The sample programs work great, and have good comments in them, making them very understandable. However, where I think MCC really shines is with their technical support staff. I had a specific problem that was addressed by their friendly and knowledgeable support staff within two days. They provided me with additional sample code and some wiring notes that were specifically applicable to the particular problem that I was trying to solve.

USB-CTR08
June 24, 2014
This module has excellent performance and value.

For our application the USB-CTR08 can replace a VME module that costs over $3,000. We use it in 2 modes: 1) A single-shot preset scaler. For this application Counter 0 is the preset channel, and Counter 0 Output is connected to Counters 1-7 Gate Inputs. Thus when Counter 0 stops all of the other counters stop as well. 2) As a traditional multi-channel scaler (MCS). The data from each counter are collected into time bins. The channel advance to the next time bin can be done either with an internal clock or with an external channel advance connected to the CLKI input. One slight drawback of the module, and a suggestion for a future firmware upgrade is that the CLKI input does not have a "prescale" feature. We often want to divide our external channel advance input by N. For example that input might be stepper motor pulse signals, and we only want to advance the scaler on every 20'th pulse. This can be done with the existing USB-CTR08 by using one of the counter channels as the prescaler, with its Input connected to the external pulse source and it Output connected to CLKI. But this inconvenient because it costs a counter channel, and it is also not possible to use a prescale factor of 1 #i.e. no prescaling# in this configuration.

The datasheet states that counter inputs can concurrently monitor time periods, frequencies and pulses. Does this mean that you can concurrently perform multiple measurements on the same channel? For example, can you concurrently accumulate pulses and measure period between pulses on the same channel at the same time?

The USB-CTR04 does support concurrent channel reads but does not support multiple modes of operation on a single channel.

Most modern PCs and laptops support a high power mode (1.5 amp) on one or more of their USB ports. Can the CTR04's firmware be modified to recognize that it is connected to a high power charging port so that more current is available for the VO pin? I wan

Hello - Additional circuitry changes would be required, beyond a firmware change. MCC does not have any current plans to make such changes.

I am interested in counting voltage pulses of 2-2.2V (20 nS) from a optical photon counting device. Can I count the pulse rate (pulses/Sec) and export the data to excel or suitable software?

Answers

Hello Sudhee, thank you for your inquiry. Full support for the USB-CTR04/08 can be obtained through our Universal Library for Windows. However, there are some limitations when using TracerDAQ, DASYLab, or LabVIEW. However, it does appear that all but TracerDAQ will support “Pulse Counting” at this time. Please refer to our knowledge base article for the USB-CTR Series for detailed information on supported features of the USB-CTR04/08. http://kb.mccdaq.com/Search.aspx?Keywords=USB-CTR Full support is planned for the near future.

Is USB-CTR04 a replacement of your old USB-4301? Does it provide the same functionality? Is a detail mechanical drawing available to provide detail dimension information? Thanks.

Answers

Hello DJLee - Thank you for your inquiry. The new USB-CTR04 and USB-CTR08 are not drop-in replacements for our USB-4300 Series. You can review the Data sheet and User’s manual for the new counter devices at: http://www.mccdaq.com/usb-data-acquisition/USB-CTR04.aspx . There is also a mechanical drawing posted at: http://www.mccdaq.com/pdfs/drawings/USB-CTR-Series.pdf Please feel free to contact us if you have any additional questions.
