NI releases CompactDAQ controllers

August 4, 2015 -  – NI announced 4- and 8-slot CompactDAQ controllers featuring quad-core processing, a 14-slot USB 3.0 CompactDAQ Chassis, DIAdem 2015 and DataFinder Server Edition 2015.

The 4- and 8-slot CompactDAQ controllers feature Intel Atom quad-core 1.91 GHz E3845 processors, programmable with LabVIEW 2015 system design software, so engineers and scientists can customize their data acquisition systems to add functionality like processing, intelligence and control. The controllers can run either Windows Embedded 7 or NI Linux Real-Time, and include 32 GB of nonvolatile storage and removable SD storage to create smarter data logging and embedded monitoring applications.

The USB 3.0 CompactDAQ Chassis helps users scale their measurement systems to higher-channel-count applications without reducing transfer speed. With a 14-slot expansion capacity and USB 3.0 streaming capabilities, the new CompactDAQ Chassis and LabVIEW software can handle current data acquisition needs and easily adapt to meet future needs in a single system.

To make critical data-driven decisions, an enterprise data management solution is paramount to managing, analyzing and visualizing big data. NI is releasing DIAdem 2015 as 64-bit software, so users can load and analyze more data than before. DataFinder Server Edition 2015 delivers multistep querying that can be sent out to a global federation of servers to find the data users need to analyze in seconds.

Key features of new high-performance CompactDAQ controllers:

  • Integrated Intel Atom quad-core 1.91 GHz processor
  • More than 60 sensor-specific I/O modules with integrated signal conditioning
  • Two integrated USB and Gigabit Ethernet ports, RS232 serial, trigger input and user button
  • Removable SD storage to easily access data
  • Key features of the new higher-channel-count CompactDAQ Chassis:
  • 14 slots to integrate more C Series I/O modules into a single system
  • Data transfer rates of more than 250 MB/s with USB 3.0
  • Easily scale existing NI-DAQmx code with the same software user experience as current CompactDAQ USB chassis

Key features of DIAdem 2015:

  • 64-bit release to load and analyze more data within the DIAdem environment
  • Improved search capabilities to globally find specific data sets for analysis
  • New data visualizations and analysis functions
