MARLBORO, MA -- July 28, 2009 – Data Translation announces MEASURpoint™, a highly accurate, multipurpose single instrument solution for measuring any combination of RTD, thermocouple, and voltage ranges from 300µV to 400V.

“MEASURpoint is the first instrument of its kind that allows the user to simultaneously correlate temperature and voltage measurements.” according to Fred Molinari, Founder and CEO of Data Translation. “A broad array of applications including Li-ion and fuel cell battery measurement, hybrid electric vehicle battery performance, thermal battery management, and portable equipment measurement are now simplified.”

MEASURpoint incorporates proprietary ISO-Channel™ technology that makes measurements almost indestructible and eliminates any common mode noise and ground loop problems under all environmental conditions. In addition, up to forty-eight configurable input channels in groupings of eight voltage, thermocouple, and RTD inputs offer ultimate flexibility to the user.

Key Product Features:

  • B,E,J,K,N,R,S, and T thermocouple types to 0.0004ºC resolution
  • Supports Platinum RTD Types: Pt100 (+/-0.07ºC accuracy), Pt500, Pt1000 (+/-0.01ºC accuracy)
  • Software selectable voltage ranges of ±10V, ±100V, or ±400V on a channel basis
  • Flexible software configuration on up to 48 input channels
  • USB or Ethernet (LXI Class C compliant) versions available
  • Ultra-accurate and precise measurements with ISO-Channel technology
  • Superior guaranteed isolation of 1000V between input channels
  • Advanced ±500V isolation to earth ground
  • Maximum isolation with separate DC/DC converters per channel
  • Highly accurate parallel operation of 24-bit A/D resolution per channel
  • Throughput rates of 10Hz simultaneously or 480Hz for 48 input channels

Software Support

Each MEASURpoint instrument ships with a ready to measure application that allows the user to be up and measuring quickly. The program allows rapid configuration and acquiring of temperature, resistance, and voltage channels, displaying, logging, analyzing, and exporting data to other formats including Excel.
