PowerLab – Data with Integrity

PowerLab - Data with IntegrityPowerLab is a high quality data acquisition device engineered to record precise, reliable, consistent data for research and education.

PowerLabs are capable of high speed sampling and form the core of many research data acquisition systems – they are compatible with instruments, signal conditioners, and transducers supplied by ADInstruments and many other leading brands.

Developed in 1985, PowerLab has been a reliable data acquisition tool for an entire generation of scientists and educators. It has always offered a simple and flexible solution for almost all types of analog physiological data acquisition.

With the addition of the PowerLab C data acquisition hardware for research, we are excited to continue supporting a whole new generation of scientists with unparalleled flexibility for both analog and digital data acquisition.

Based on modern digital architecture, PowerLab C integrates data from up to four C Series compatible USB-C devices. Our first two C Series compatible devices are the Instrument Interface and the Front End Interface. When connected to the PowerLab C, these Interfaces allow you to integrate any existing analog technology, ADInstruments or otherwise, with sub-µS synchronization and seamlessly stream data into one software platform (LabChart 8 or LabChart Lightning) for analysis. So you can invest in the future while still being able to use existing equipment in your lab!

Digital framework for the future

Digital framework for the futureLooking forward, we are planning a complete product pipeline of C Series digital DAQ devices, so you can sample data with unparalleled precision and time synchronization across all aspects of your research.

Modular
