The Next-USB device is intended for transmitting data received from Next-LAB sensors to a PC, tablet PC, or smartphone. As opposed to Next -LCD, this device does not have the inbuilt display and can not be used for independent work. The main advantage of Next-USB is that it has four independent Lab-Bus ports for connecting pressure sensors, microphones or power sensors. It makes Next-USB really an all-purpose and completely cascadable tool. When user purchases, for example, a set for measuring sound pressure, in future they can supplement it with the microphone for measuring AFC or with the power sensor for measuring current and voltage. Simultaneous work with four signal sources is available. For controlling the device and transmitting data from Next-USB, the device can be connected to the PC via the USB or, if the Wi-Fi module is installed, via wireless network to a tablet PC, or smartphone.
The Next-USB device is performed as a monoblock that has the control button, USB port for connecting to the PC and charging the device, four Lab-Bus ports for connecting sensors, feed switch and three-coloured LED for indicating status and extent of battery charge. The device can be supplied with the inbuilt Wi-Fi module for connecting and managing via the wireless network. The case of the device is made of shockproof plastic material.
