MSB3004 USB 4 Channel Quadrature Counter Module

The MSB3004 is a USB quadrature counter module designed to track up to 4 quadrature encoders as single ended 3.3V or 5V inputs. A channel consists of quadrature A, B and Index signals. Each of the quadrature input channels has a dedicated 24-bit real time 3MHz counter. The internal microcontroller reads the counters and transfer the data over the USB bus to the host PC. The MSB3004 quadrature counter board supports both indexed and non-indexed quadrature encoders in a X2 or X4 count mode. It provides independent bi-directional counters for each of the encoders at a rate up to 2MHz. Single unit cost starts at $139.5 . MSB3004 USB 4 Channel Quadrature Counter Module

Software
Most of our customers write their own program for controlling our devices. With our provided API's you can use any programming language that supports DLL so you do not have to learn a whole new language. We provide two types of DLL api, first is the older standard DLL with both mangled calls and "C" calls. The second is the managed Class Library that supports all the new managed languages. Any programming language that supports calls to Windows DLL can also be used to control the cards. The software interface is easy to use from Visual Basic, Visual C# Visual C++ via a standard windows DLL with sample source included. Linux driver support CD available. Each module has an unique serial number string which allows multiple USB boards to be controlled by the host USB controller as individual USB devices.

This software replaces previous versions of module support software. It is a generic package that will provide support for all J-Works USB Modules. It is recommended that any new designs start with this package, and existing designs be moved over, if/when there is windows updates that require changes to the driver or API, the updates will only be made on jwControl CD. Also additional sample applications will be added to this CD only. There will be a larger number then normal revisions to this package, but most will not affect modules already supported, but is updates for modules not currently supported, or new samples.
