CompactDAQ 8-slot controller

07 April 2015

National Instruments (NI) has introduced the new CompactDAQ 8-slot controller, which expands its CompactDAQ controller offering to meet high-channel count applications in rugged environments.

By integrating the processor, signal conditioning and I/O into a single CompactDAQ system allows engineers to reduce overall system cost and complexity while increasing measurement accuracy. Integrated measurement systems reduce the number of components, connections and wiring needed, which often introduce noise and additional costs, to ensure high-accuracy measurements and cost-optimised systems. 

Both the 4-slot and 8-slot CompactDAQ controllers feature an Intel Atom dual-core processor that can run either Windows Embedded 7 or NI Linux Real-Time. 
By pairing industry-standard OS options with LabVIEW system design software, customers can port LabVIEW code from existing measurement systems to these new CompactDAQ controllers. They can also combine LabVIEW and over 60 sensor-specific I/O modules for CompactDAQ to customise data acquisition systems to meet their application needs.
