Compatible with both USB 1.1/2.0, the module suits a wide variety of industrial process control and monitoring applications. Measuring 62.7 mm x 22.6 mm, it also suits desktop prototyping and evaluation tasks. Voltage measurements range from 0V to 5V and temperature readings extend from -55°C to 125°C.
