PowerLab is a data acquisition (DAQ) device from ADInstruments that is engineered for high quality, precise, reproducible Life Science data acquisition that meets the strictest international safety standards. Research PowerLabs provide 16-bit resolution on all gain ranges for high resolution on even the smallest of signals. Each channel has individual filters and noise reduction circuitry for minimal channel crosstalk and signal noise. All research PowerLabs have 2 analog outputs, a trigger input, and offer a 5-year product warranty.
Four PowerLab options are available:
- PowerLab 16/35, the most powerful DAQ system, with 16-analog input channels (4 of which can be used in differential mode), 8 digital inputs, 8 digital outputs, and a 400kS/s ADC giving a maximum per channel sampling rate of 200 kS/s.
- PowerLab 8/35, the most popular model, is designed for those researchers requiring an advanced feature set. 8 analog input channels (4 of which can be used in differential mode), 8 digital inputs, 8 digital outputs, and a maximum sampling rate of 200 kS/s per channel.
- PowerLab 4/26, an entry-level research grade DAQ system, with 4 analog input channels, a maximum sampling rate of 100kHz per channel, and independent ADCs for each channel to keep data perfectly in sync.
- PowerLab 2/26 is another entry-level DAQ system and with minimal channels is an ideal option. A maximum sampling rate of 100kHz per channel, and independent ADCs for each channel keep data perfectly in sync.
