“The addition of the new wireless, USB and Ethernet 1-slot chassis demonstrates our commitment to expanding the NI CompactDAQ modular data acquisition platform,” said Kevin Schultz, National Instruments vice president of research and development. “These chassis can be used with more than 50 C Series modules which make it possible for engineers and scientists to build flexible, scalable measurement systems for portable and distributed applications.”
More than 50 measurement-specific modules featuring multiple electrical and sensor connectivity options can be combined with any chassis to create customized systems specific to the needs of numerous applications. NI Signal Streaming technology delivers high-bandwidth capabilities that make it possible to achieve 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.
NI-DAQmx driver software, included with each NI CompactDAQ chassis, goes beyond a basic device driver to deliver increased productivity and performance. With NI-DAQmx, engineers and scientists can 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. A consistent API means that an application developed for an NI CompactDAQ wireless chassis will work with an NI CompactDAQ USB or Ethernet chassis without any modifications to the software. In addition, all new NI CompactDAQ chassis now support the new controller area network (CAN) C Series module for optimal communication across various networks.
