National Instruments Releases New CompactDAQ System
As part of the set of new product launches at their NIWeek, National Instruments has announced their new stand-alone NI CompactDAQ system.
The CompactDAQ system is a high-performance embedded measurement and logging platform with a built-in dual-core Intel processor for running data acquisition, online analysis and logging software.
With the NI CompactDAQ platform, engineers can customize a complete measurement system using LabVIEW or take advantage of over 600 companies in the NI Alliance Partner Network for a custom turnkey data-logging solution.
One of the advantages of the CompactDAQ is that it is a sytandalone system, and this enables it to be used for many remote or portable systems, or where it needs to be run away from a network.
The flexibility provided by the NI CompactDAQ platform allows engineers to customize their measurement system using LabVIEW. Alternatively they can utilise one of the companies (over 600) in the NI Alliance Partner Network for a custom turnkey data-logging solution.
“We easily upgraded to the stand-alone NI CompactDAQ system with almost no changes to our LabVIEW code,” said Tim Carlier, president and founder of Integrated Test & Measurement. “With the new embedded data-logging platform, we can run our iTestSystem software and log synchronized sensor data directly to the device, eliminating the need for a separate PC and drastically reducing system costs and maintenance requirements.”
