Analog to Digital Converters
Analog to Digital Conversion is the process of converting a voltage or amperage into a digital number/integer that can be stored and processed.
- Wired, Wireless, and Network Communications
- 0-5v, 0-10v, and 4-20mA options available
- 8, 10, 12, and 16 Bit Resolutions
- Great for multi-sensor boards
- Great for applications needing separation between board and sensor
Our Analog to Digital Converters
Why Choose NCD?
With NCD you know you have a proven reliable, easy to use, and extensible product because we’ve been in the business for over 20 years. This means you don’t have to spend valuable time researching how to jig-saw pieces of your project together to get them to work cohesively. Being manufactured in the U.S.A. you know you’ll get good support and a quality product. NCD also ensures you won’t have to put any time into soldering or building a PCB, just pick your boards and power them up. Knowing that every sensor, relay controller, and component is built around the same concept will save you guess work on how well software will work with any board.
How do ADCs work?
Analog to Digital Converters (ADC) basically read a voltage or amperage and report it as a numerical value or a byte/bytes.
For instance if you have a 0-5v ADC with an 8-bit resolution that reports a 127 for a temperature sensor then you know that the voltage being read is 2.5v. Cross-Referencing 2.5v against a table or equation in the temperature sensor’s datasheet you can determine that the 2.5v value means the temperature is 42 degrees Fahrenheit.
