Interface Kit 8/8/8 (1018_2B) is the Phidgets workhorse. Connect sensors, control outputs, and read in digital inputs.

Note: The 1018_2B is identical to the 1018_2, except that it comes pre-assembled in a plastic shell enclosure and you have the option of which length of USB cable you want to include.

Analog Inputs

The analog inputs are used to measure continuous voltage outputs generated by various sensors such as temperature, humidity, position, or pressure. Phidgets offers a wide variety of sensors that can be plugged directly into the board using the cable included with the sensor.

Sampling rates can be set at 1ms, 2ms, 4ms, 8ms and multiple of 8ms up to 1000ms.

For more information about these inputs and their connectors, have a look at the Analog Input Primer.

Digital Inputs

The Digital Inputs have a Digital Input Hardware Filter to eliminate false triggering from electrical noise. They can be used to convey the state of devices such as push buttons, limit switches, relays, and logic levels.

Digital Outputs

The Digital Outputs can be used to drive LEDs, solid state relays (such as the 3052 SSR Relay Board), transistors; in fact, anything that will accept a CMOS signal.
