MCC 152: Voltage Output and DIO DAQ HAT for Raspberry Pi®

(2 reviews) Write a Review

Measurement Computing Corporation (MCC) and Data Translation (DT) DAQ products are now part of the Digilent family of test and measurement solutions. MCC and DT are leading suppliers of data acquisition solutions that are easy-to-use, easy-to-integrate, and easy-to-support.

The MCC 152 Voltage Output and DIO HAT features two channels of analog voltage output and eight digital I/O for Raspberry Pi-based systems. The 12-bit voltage outputs feature a 0-5 V range and can be updated at up to 5 kS/s. Up to eight MCC HATs can be stacked onto one Raspberry Pi.

All DAQ HATs include C/C++® and Python examples and open-source library. Comprehensive API and hardware documentation are also provided.

There are five devices in the MCC DAQ HAT Series. Models are available with voltage inputs, thermocouple inputs, IEPE-based sensor inputs, analog outputs, and digital I/O allowing users to configure multifunction, Raspberry Pi-based data logger solutions.

Raspberry Pi is not included with the MCC 152.

OEM/Embedded Customers- please contact our dedicated application engineer for volume pricing and assistance with your application. Visit our OEM Board-only page for more product offerings.

The open-source MCC DAQ HAT Library of commands in C/C++ and Python allows users to develop applications on the Raspberry Pi using the Raspbian®/Raspberry Pi OS®. The library is available to download from GitHub. Comprehensive API and hardware documentation are available. The MCC DAQ HAT Library supports operation with multiple MCC DAQ HATs running concurrently. The library includes example programs developed in C/C++ and Python that users can run to become familiar with the DAQ HAT library and boards; source code is included.

    Quick to Setup and Example Files Easy to Implement

    Posted by CU1 on 26th Jan 2021

    I bought an MCC 152 HAT to control a Sorenson high power, power supply. It required analog 0-5V DC inputs in order to automate voltage and current settings. The MCC 152 hat allowed a Pi based control software of the power supply to automatically change voltage based on the input signal from the HAT board. 12 bits was plenty of resolution for my application.

    Another Great Hat by MCC

    First one worked so well, I had to buy another one. Support has been great for someone new to Python and the Raspberry Pi (Like Me). One project complete, one to the next!
