Data Acquisition Toolbox Support Package for Measurement Computing Hardware

Acquire and analyze data from Measurement Computing DAQ devices


Updated 10 Mar 2021

Data Acquisition Toolbox™ Support Package for Measurement Computing™ Hardware enables you to communicate with Measurement Computing DAQ hardware remotely from a computer running MATLAB®. Using the command line interface, you can generate analog output data and acquire analog input data.

This support package is functional for R2017a and beyond.

Package does not seem to fully support the USB-2533. Most importantly I have been unable to find documentation on how to setup the thermocouple channels.


hello, the mcc usb 205 DAQ supported in analog output generator app?

1) If your target Windows 64-bit system does not have the Measurement Computing (MCC) Universal Library and drivers installed already, then downloading the 'Data Acquisition Toolbox Support Package for Measurement Computing Hardware' will also force the "Third-Party Package" (MCC Universal Library v6.60) to be downloaded and installed.

2) If your MCC data acquisition module is on the supported hardware list, then be sure to use MCC's InstaCal utility, in order to detect the module first, and then close InstaCal before launching MATLAB R2017a (or newer).

3) My USB-1208FS-Plus module (or any other MCC module) was not supported by the 'Analog Input Recorder' example. However, the USB-1208FS-Plus module did work with the 'LiveDataAcquisition' example.

I wasted time trying to make the analog input recorder work, but then I found this in the documentation:

MCC devices are not supported by the Analog Input Recorder.

So, that's a shame, but you can still use it via commands.

The device cannot be found

Why is "addFunctionGeneratorChannel" not supported with MCC?

I feel Mathworks has misleading examples.

I have the same problem with USD-1408FS-PLUS. it is not recongnized by MATLAB

Don L

USB-1208FS-Plus from MCC not recognized.
Please advise ASAP

I am wondering if anyone else is having problem 'Downloading Third-Party Packages' (mccuniversallibrary)? It seems the Measurement Computing web is not responding...

I was not able to get Personal DAQ/2000 connected to MATLAB using Data acquisition toolbox. The device is unexpectedly not listed in the documentations.

I get this error message when trying to put some digital output vía:
ch = addDigitalChannel(s,'Board0','Port0/Line1:2','OutputOnly');
¨The requested subsystem 'DigitalIO' does not exist on this device.¨

Aparently the device is only recognizing the inputs (here the diagnosis):

mcc: Measurement Computing Corp. USB-1608GX (Device ID: 'Board0')
Analog input subsystem supports:
4 ranges supported
Rates from 0.1 to 500000.0 scans/sec
16 channels ('Ai0' - 'Ai15')
'Voltage' measurement type

Alex J

Gain-channel queue not support on the 1608GX. This severely limits the usability of this DAQ device as maximum sampling rates get truncated depending on channel index choice.
