All-In-One Measurement System - AMS42-USB

All-In-One Measurement System - AMS42-USB

Quick Overview

The AMS42-USB features 16 analogue Inputs. 8 amplified inputs with 16 Bit resolution and 250kHz total sampling rate and 8 unamplified inputs via a D-Sub 37-pin connector. 8 Digital Inputs/Outputs (one 32-bit counters) all connected to a PC via a USB connection. The modular design of the AMS42-USB allows each amplified input to be on individual AMS-K cassettes with individual 5B Amplifiers to optimism to specific requirements. The unit comes in a robust table top Aluminium housing with skid-proof, tip-up feet.

All-In-One Measurement System. Compact.

The AMS42-USB is a complete solution: amplifier technology and data acquisition. A high-quality USB data acquisition system is already integrated. Available in a robust aluminum housing as a mobile tabletop unit with skid-proof, tip-up feet.

Modular Concept.

The AMS device is equipped with cassettes, on which the required 5B measuring amplifiers are mounted. The variety of available 5B modules allows for the optimum adaptation of the AMS42-USB to any special measuring task.

Choose Connector. Mount 5B Amplifiers.

The available plug-in cassettes have different connectors on the front panel. Depending on the sensor or signal to be connected, the suitable cassette can be chosen. Now the 5B module only has to be fixed on the cassette and be integrated in the AMS.


Clearly Safe.

The galvanic isolation provided by the 5B modules guarantees interference-free operation and protects the DAQ system and the PC against high potentials






16 Analogue Inputs. 2 Analogue Outputs.

Signals are connected at 8 amplifier inputs with 16 bit resolution and 250kHz total sampling rate. Additional 8 analog inputs and 2 analog outputs are available directly and without amplification via the rear D-Sub 37 female connector

4 Digital I/O. 1 Counter

Digital states are recorded or set at 4 digital inputs and outputs each. The direction of the two 16-bit ports is set via software. Pulses, frequency, position, and pulse time can be measured with three 32-bit counters.

Plug & Play With USB.

The connection to the PC is realized via USB. The AMS42-USB provides all typical USB features (e.g. Plug&Play, Hot-Plug.

Ideal for Windows.

The data acquisition system can be used under Windows 8.1 and 10 in 64bit. The complete software for installation and programming is provided for free.

NEXTVIEW. Try For Free.

The DAQ system is supported by NextView, the software for data acquisition and analysis. A fully functional 14-day trial can be requested. So it is possible, to directly test the functionality of the device.

Versions and Options. Something for Everybody.

Other AMS versions, such as a 19" rack system, with an integrated USB data acquisition system, or as an amplifier system without a DAQ unit are available. With the add-on option AMS-EXT8, eight additional analog channels are provided, and eight opto-isolated digital inputs and relay outputs each with the option AMS-DIG8.
