Meilhaus Electronic keeps their award-winning DAQ products up-to-date by offering a PCIexpress version, new drivers and a free software suite

Ever since Meilhaus Electronic first introduced their new software driver system for the DAQ and control boards in mid-2007, all new designs are devoted to cross-platform compatibility. No matter whether for PCI, compactPCI/PXI, USB, Ethernet, or now for the new PCIexpress bus: The DAQ and control boards, which are available in various versions for different platforms, are completely compatible regarding port pin-outs, functionality and software. Now for the first time the widely-used ME-FoXX ME-46xx models (isolated 16-bit universal DAQ boards), the ME-630 model (a relay and universal digital board), and the ME-8200 model (a high-drive opto-digital board) are also available with x2 PCIexpress interfaces.
The multifunctional 16-bit ME-FoXX ME-46xx DAQ and control board offers 16-bit analog inputs and outputs, digital I/Os and counters. Featuring opto-isolation on all channels and numerous options and extras, the board is ideal for many industrial and lab applications. Alongside the new model for PCIexpress, the board is also available as PCI, compactPCI/PXI versions and can be combined with the ME-Synapse (an adapter for the compactPCI models) for USB or Ethernet/LAN connectivity.
The ME-630 board is “digitally multi-talented”, combining relays, opto-digital channels and TTL digital channels on one board. This board now also comes in the PCIexpress version in addition to the classic PCI, compactPCI/PXI variants and can be combined with the ME-Synapse (an adapter for the compactPCI models) as USB or Ethernet/LAN interface. In addition, Meilhaus Electronic offers a “native” USB version called the MEphisto Switch.
Where opto-isolated digital channels are required with a higher level than the usual 24V, the ME-8200 board is the right choice. Its opto-I/Os work with a level of 50V with an isolation up to 500V and a load of up to 700mA. Additional TTL digital I/Os add to the board’s functionality. Besides the versions for PCIexpress, PCI, compactPCI/PXI and together with the ME-Synapse for USB or Ethernet/LAN, there is also a “native” USB version called the MEphisto Opto.
All models are supported by the new ME iDS -The Meilhaus Electronic intelligent Driver System for Windows and Linux. This allows programming of the boards in C, Visual Basic, Delphi, Python, VEE Pro and LabVIEW programming environments. The free software package ME-PowerLab² is included with every DAQ and control board designed by Meilhaus Electronic. It includes such features as a data logger, an oscilloscope, signal generator, logic analyzer and can be used with all ME DAQ boards without additional programming.
“With the ME-iDS, the ME-PowerLab² and the PCIexpress interface we are keeping our products up-to-date and easier to use” says Peter Omlor, head of R&D at Meilhaus Electronic. “We will continue to deliver the quality products, our customers have learned to expect from us”.

Situated in Puchheim near Munich, Meilhaus Electronic is one of the leading European designers, producers and distributors for PC-based measurement, data acquisition and interface technology.

The new DAQ board generation ME-5000 cobalt with revised driver software
The ME-5000 cobalt series of DAQ boards developed and released by Meilhaus Electronic in 2011 has grown again: Now all 3U CompactPCI models are also available for the PCI-Express platform. "Most modern PCs have several PCI-Express slots, whereas Standard-PCI slots are becoming increasingly obsolete," says Peter Omlor, chief of Meilhaus Electronic hardware design. "Therefore we have decided to focus on the new, modern bus platforms PCI-Express and CompactPCI, with the
Multi-functional Remote 50A Current Measurement- and Control Module ME-7 “ME-A …
Precise Current and Voltage Measurement via USB or Ethernet Meilhaus Electronic presents their latest development in measurement and control modules – the ME-7 also known as the ME-Axon. Depending on the model the device is connected to a USB 2.0 or a 10/100Base-T Ethernet/LAN interface of a PC. With its rugged metal housing it can be used as table-top device or integrated into a 19” rack. The ME-Axon’s main feature
GPIB – 40 Years of Rugged Connectivity
GPIB was originally developed by Hewlett-Packard in the late 1960s and was accepted as IEEE-488 standard in the 1970s. The GPIB / IEEE-488 interface has been the choice of professionals, when it comes to a proven connection of PCs to measurement devices ever since. Its rugged, industrial grade connector mechanisms, its real-time response and maximum connection length still gives it advantages over the more modern USB or LAN/Ethernet interfaces. Meilhaus
