NI Expands NI CompactDAQ Platfrom With Single-Slot Chassis

Wednesday, August 3, 2011

NI has announced new 1-slot NI CompactDAQ chassis that support wireless, USB and Ethernet buses, giving you the portability of a data logger with the performance and flexibility of modular measurements. The new chassis support all NI C Series Modules for NI CompactDAQ and can be used in conjunction with the existing 4- and 8-slot chassis.




New metal enclosures make the chassis more resistant to environmental damage as compared to the previous plastic sleeves. The chassis operate in a temperature range of 0 to 55 degrees Celsius and can withstand up to 30 g shock and 3 g vibration.


More than 50 measurement-specific modules featuring multiple electrical and sensor connectivity options can be combined with any chassis to create customized systems. NI Signal Streaming technology delivers high-bandwidth capabilities for achieving sustained high-speed and bidirectional data streams over USB, Ethernet and wireless buses. Zero configuration networking technology simplifies initial setup, eliminating the need for IT involvement in network setup and integration.


Each NI CompactDAQ chassis includes NI-DAQmx software to help you log data for simple experiments or develop a complete test system in NI LabVIEW, NI LabWindows/CVI, ANSI C/C++ or Microsoft Visual Studio .NET.
