I had initially wanted to connect several thermistor based infrared temperature sensors along with strain gauges, the ideal number was 6 of each or 12 of the same type of sensor at once.
I intend to power them using the 5V power output on the labjack but am concerned by the amount of current that will be supplied. USB 2.0 ports usually run at about 500mA. Is that enough current supply to run that many sensors? If so, what is the maximum amount of these types of sensors I could run at once by only using the current via the USB?
