NI Releases New Stand-Alone NI CompactDAQ System

By DE Editors

NI CompactDAQToday at the NIWeek conference, National Instruments (NI) announced its new stand-alone NI CompactDAQ system. The embedded measurement and logging platform has a built-in dual-core Intel processor for running data acquisition, online analysis and logging software.

With the NI CompactDAQ platform, NI says engineers can customize a complete measurement system using LabVIEW or take advantage of more than 600 companies 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, in a press release accompanying the announcement. “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.”

The stand-alone NI CompactDAQ System features:

  • An Intel Core i7 dual-core processor, 2 GB RAM and 32 GB nonvolatile storage, which the company says allows engineers to run high-performance, mixed-measurement tests while logging data directly to the system, removing the need for an external PC.
  • Compatibility with LabVIEW 2012.
  • An eight-slot chassis with more than 50 C Series I/O module options that allows engineers to mix and match a variety of I/O and sensor types, including AI, AO, DIO and CAN.
  • USB, Ethernet and serial ports.
  • The ability to stream data to disk at up to 30 MB/s, and to simultaneously stream continuous measurements with sample rates up to 1 MS/s/ch.

Prices for the NI CompactDAQ platform start at $6,499.
