Measurement Computing Corporation, a designer and manufacturer of data acquisition devices has announced the release of the MCC 172 Integrated Electronic Piezoelectric (IEPE) Measurement Hardware Attached on Top (HAT) for Raspberry Pi. Ideal for Machine Condition Monitoring and Edge Computing applications, the MCC 172 is a two-channel, high-speed DAQ HAT for producing sound and vibration measurements from IEPE sensors like accelerometers and microphones. It features two, simultaneous, 24-bit analogue inputs, with sample rates up to 51.2 kS/s per channel.
Up to eight MCC HATs can be stacked onto one Raspberry Pi. MCC offers a variety of DAQ HATs that allow users to configure multifunction, Pi-based solutions with analogue input, output and digital I/O.
The open-source MCC DAQ HAT Library of commands in C/C++ and Python allows users to develop applications on Linux. The library is available to download from GitHub. Comprehensive API with hardware documentation also provided.
