December 13, 2017 – NI announced the distributed and synchronized FieldDAQ devices.
NI’s FieldDAQ are designed to acquire reliable measurements in the severe test cell and outdoor environments, including rain, sleet, snow or mud. FieldDAQ devices have an ingress protection rating up to IP67 (dust and water resistant), can operate in -40 °C to 85 °C environments and can sustain 100 g shock and 10 g vibration.
These DAQ devices are built on NI’s configurable hardware and software platforms. With open and expandable FieldDAQ solutions, test engineers can keep pace with product design cycles.
FieldDAQ also incorporates Time Sensitive Networking (TSN), the next evolution of the IEEE 802.1 Ethernet standard, providing extremely tight synchronization over a distributed network of DAQ nodes without additional cabling or complex programming. FieldDAQ expands the NI TSN product offering, joining Industrial Controllers, CompactDAQ and CompactRIO. Additionally, because it incorporates TSN, FieldDAQ is capable of being used with third-party TSN solutions from major industrial I/O and control vendors like Bosch Rexroth, B&R Automation and Schneider Electric.
NI works to empower engineers and scientists with a software-centric platform that incorporates modular hardware and an expansive ecosystem. This approach puts users firmly in control of defining what they need to accelerate their system design within test, measurement and control.
