The newly released DSCUSB-PT is a compact, high-precision potentiometer input module. It converts resistance based input (potentiometer) to a digital output. It can be used with resistance based sensors to indicate position, rotation and angle.  Aimed at applications which require high accuracy.

Simply by plugging the device into a PC, data can be extracted from the potentiometer input to the DSCUSB-PT for a wide range of applications.  This is achieved using the DSCUSB Toolkit software, which is a simple configuration tool designed specifically for configuring DSCUSB modules. It allows configuration, calibration, logging and parameter management of the modules.



  • High precision potentiometer input providing superior performance
  • Simple USB plug and play device connects to a PC directly, allowing quick setup
  • Works with free DSCUSB toolkit software for fast and accurate measurement
  • 7 point linearization and optional temperature compensation
  • Configuration and calibration can be saved and restored for security of setup
  • Log up to 24 devices using DSC 24 Channel Logging Software
  • Supplied with 1.5m USB to Micro USB lead
  • OEM PCB version available
  • Windows driver DLL’s available

The output is factory calibrated to give an output from between 0% and 100% but this can be scaled by the system integrator or the user to give engineering units instead.

This free-standing module is fitted with 9-way ‘D’ type socket for potentiometer and optional temperature sensor connections. A micro USB socket accepts a USB lead with type ’A’ connector at the PC end.
