The 750 plugs into your computer's USB port and costs just 295 British pounds (around 440 US dollars or 470 Euros). The price even includes our Windmill software suite, which we normally sell for 145 pounds on its own! Plus, we offer discounts for education. One 750 unit lets you use your PC to monitor up to 16 voltage inputs, 16 digital inputs & outputs and 8 counters. You can connect eight 750s to one computer, increasing the number of inputs and outputs. The Windmill software applications let you log and chart data, switch outputs and save libraries of set- up files for different tests or experiments - all without programming. What's more, data can be sent straight to Excel, or other Windows applications. We're so confident that anyone can use our 750 bundle with the minimum of effort, we offer free technical support for life. We aimed to create the best value USB package you can buy - we think we've succeeded.
